    Connecting a TV Monitor

    ok, a lot of people are telling me that the picture that I see on my video editing software monitor is not what you will always see on your TV and that it might be darker on the software monitor. they also tell me to connect a TV monitor to my computer to see what the video is like on a real TV. Ok, here is the question...how do you connect a TV monitor to the computer to view a video that has not been rendered yet? and be able to view the video as it is being manipulated?

    there are a few options. first i will need to know what type of computer you are using, then i will need to know what your editing system is...


    last but not least i will need to know your budget. there are ways to do it that are cheaper then others, but a lot less professional looking (ie: wires everywhere)

    If you have an IEEE1394 (firewire) device like a camera or deck, most editing software will support 'playing out' one of your editing monitors through the 1394 connection and you can then connect a monitor to that device.

    i think the simplest thing you can do is use an S-Video cable, and connect ur pc or laptop to the tv.

    this is true, but depending on the editing system and the computer, this may not be an option

    This will not render proper colors as the device is not outputting anywhere near the signal that your final will have, it will render the video for computer (with gamma correction) then scan convert the computer image for tv viewing (without any color correction and with image degradation). IEEE1394 is the best bet if available.
