    Need LCD Monitor Help

      Hello all,

      We've setup an editing suite and the final element needed is a flatscreen tv/monitor for the client and/or future clients to view their production.

      Can anyone recommend the type of tv/monitor to use for client viewing?

      They will be sitting about 10-12 feet from the monitor and it will be mounted on the wall about 5-6 feet above the floor.

      We have do some HD, but most of the work for our clients is SD.

      I've viewed a number of LCD monitors and they have that "soft & pixely" display. It seems as though my 14" Sony CRT displays a better cleaner picture as far as SD is concerned.

      Sorry if this was the wrong place to post, but it seemed like this would be the best place.

      Thanks,
      Larry

          You're in a fix. The best displays are still good old CRTs. If you were only working in SD, I'd say go that route. But, the buying sheep (er, I mean public) have decided they want the highly inferior flat screen LCDs, so no one's really making affordable HD CRTs anymore.

          So you're either stuck with an inferior HD/SD picture, or you buy two displays, an inferior one for HD (LCD) and a better one for SD (CRT).
