After NAB I had finally settled on getting a "budget minded" Flanders Scientific monitor for our basic workflow of color correction and grading, etc. Then today I saw a webinar on the XRite i1 Display Pro. Apparently it can now calibrate to Rec 709. Can a $249.00 product do justice? We would, of course, loose the scopes from the Flanders, but I don't really need them since we have scopes in Premiere and are doing web delievery. The appeal is that we are beginning to do some mobile editing (MacBook Pro) along with tradational post in our online suite. Thoughts?
Well essentially the differences that your looking at when including a Colorimeter is color range. What you may want to do is look at the Asus 24 inch PA246Q IPS screen with that Colorimeter since it should have the same color ranges or close color ranges to Broadcast monitors.
Thanks Eric, so when you say color range do you mean 8 bit vs 10 bit?
I mean White to Black color range and Adobe RGB standard color range.
