I'm considering getting a 40" TV or 2 for PPro CS5. It will run off a GTX470.
Option 1: 40" TV for monitoring. This will be a dedicated monitor using PPro's second monitor out for monitoring footage. No other windows or programs needed. If I'm not mistaken this WILL work with MPE so long as I don't expect any other windows or features sent to the monitor. I think a user here posted a pic of it working in this fashion. Am I missing anything?
Option 2: 40" TV for monitoring and 40" TV for programs/editing interface. I've seen a few folks using TVs as monitors for programs and was considering giving it a go myself. Any pros/cons using a TV for editing in PPro?
Or am I way off on what the card can do with these monitoring configs?
Thought I would consult with the greats on this board before dropping any cash on this. Thanks for your time and consideration.
Most TVs won't handle resolutions greater than 1920 x 1080. Larger computer monitors will (27" and up). So using a 40" TV for your desktop won't give you any extra screen real estate to work with. It'll just make everything really big.
Thanks Jim. That makes sense and probably not what I would want to do after considering it.
Looks like I will just go for Option 1.
