Professional Monitors v.

Our Semi-Annual Review of Reference-Grade Flat Panel Monitors for Post Production

The Editors' Lounge kicked off 2010 with a bang: our February event presented a lineup of professional LCD reference-grade monitors. Visitors were able to see the latest flat panel broadcast monitors side-by-side for easy comparison. Company reps were on hand to answer questions.

The featured monitors were set up in one room with subdued backlighting and neutral backdrops, and were fed the same 4:4:4 signal of clips and test patterns for easy side-by-side comparison. On display were: Cine-tal Systems’ Cinemage B230, Flanders Scientific’s LM-2470W, Sony’s BVM-L231, and TV Logic’s XVM-245W. Additional monitors included JVC’s DT-VS4L3DY (PDF) and Sony’s BVM-L170, PVM-L2300, and PVM-L3200. As an extra treat, we also had a JVC GD-463D10U 3D monitor.

The event was a huge success, and AlphaDogs would like to thank all the vendors for their participation. Special thanks go to Key Code Media for invaluable logistic and technical assistance, and to GenArts for their generous 2010 raffle sponsorship.
