Why dont you connect it up and see if it works?
Does the TV have DVI input?
THat would be my preference as connection if you are using a single monitor for the Premiere GUI (Workspace)
Select the TV as the second monitor for full screen out put of thePremiere Program Monitor.
Is TV..true 1080p ? If not you will be looking at scaled images.
Note: TVs are not Broadcast quality monitors so approach with caution for BC purposes.
Unfortunately, the TV (Samsung LN32B360) only supports up to 720p and has one VGA and two HDMI inputs, no DVI input. I successfully connected it via a vga-dvi adapter to my PC. However, since this connection is limited to a max resolution of 1360 x 768, would I be better off using an HDMI cable even with the down-scaling? Either way, I'm more interested in using the TV for BC purposes.
I remember back in school that all the Mac Pros had these small, dinky-looking CRT's connected to a DV deck that previewed footage in FCP but were not mere extensions of the desktop when not in use. Is this kind of setup possible without a separate video card or dv deck? I remember using these monitors solely for checking colors before exporting a project to DVD. I'm making this distinction because the TV right now is functioning more like an extension of the PC monitor than a dedicated monitor, and thus I would think that calibrating the TV would be just as inaccurate for BC as calibrating the PC monitor. Or am I confusing myself because Premiere Pro has a "disable video output when in background" option that FCP might not have had back in 2008? (So those CRT's were not factory-made to CC out of the box after all!) I'm still new to the technical side of color spaces and calibrating for PC/broadcast, but definitely interested in learning more!
