Which monitor to buy for video editing

If you are a beginner at video editing, buying a monitor for video editing is an essential element. However, there are so many models to choose from, with so many different functions and features. It can be difficult to know which model to buy. Here are some important factors you need to consider when making your decision.

The size of the LCD screen is an important factor. The video monitor should be big enough to accommodate the wide screen monitor or the computer monitor that will be used with the video editing software. Some computer models have screens that are difficult to read if they are too small, while other models may not be able to display the image at all unless they are super-wide. A good rule of thumb is to buy the largest LCD screen you can comfortably use. This way, you will be able to maximize your viewing area and make fine adjustments to the video while it is playing.

A good monitor for video editing should also be lightweight and easy to carry. Lightweight models will be easier to transport to different locations and use in the field. Some models have add-ons such as an external USB port, but you should make sure that any add-on features actually work properly before you purchase the monitor. Also, consider the weight of the monitor itself. Most people find it easier to carry a lighter model that is not as bulky. It is certainly worth the added cost if you can avoid a lot of back and shoulder strain.

There are some advanced features available on some monitors, such as screen wipes and image scrubbers. These are features that you may find useful, but they will also increase the size of the monitor. Although you may think it is worth the extra cost, you should keep this in mind when comparing the features offered by different monitors.

One of the most important factors in choosing a monitor for video editing is to consider how well the image is displayed. Some monitors will have large, clear picture displays. Other monitors may have a more washed-out appearance that can make the images look washed out or blurry. The difference between a blurred monitor and a washed-out monitor is the amount of detail in the image. If you notice a blurred image, that's probably the best monitor for your purposes.

In addition to screen size, you should also consider the image sharpening options available on the monitor. Some monitors will offer the ability to turn off image sharpening automatically. This will reduce blurring to give you a sharper, clearer image. Image sharpening can be a very advantageous feature, but some monitors will retain the image sharpening even after the monitor is turned off. You'll want to carefully read the monitor's manual to see if the monitor can be set to automatically sharpen images.
