Features of monitors
The features will vary based on the monitor that you choose, naturally. Many of them will offer features such as color matching, color and gamma mode settings, a variety of connections – HDMI, composite, component, and RGB. Some of the monitors will also have headphone connections for local audio monitoring and editing.
How monitors work
The monitors are simply computer screens or TVs at their heart. They tend to have some slightly different capabilities though. For example, some of the monitors will actually mount to different surfaces, so you can watch them more easily while filming. They all tend to have good viewing angles and good screens, and they all have connections to hook up to HD and SD sources. It is important not to overlook having a good monitor when filming and editing alike.
Monitors are a very important part of filmmaking, and they come into play at just about every stage today. When you are filming your movie, whether you are using a traditional film camera, a digital RED, or a DSLR, having a monitor with you can make a huge difference. It allows you to see exactly what you are filming, and it will give you a better idea of what the finished product will look like. In addition to the monitors that you will use during filming, you will also want to have high quality monitors during your editing and color-grading phase. A great monitor ensures you will know what the movie really looks like.
