I want to get a LCD video assist screen to mount on my cameras. I have a PAL XC999 for My Arri and an HD camcorder. I have used the transvideo - it is nice and solid and an industry standard but it does not have a HD option. There is a marshall but they seem a little flimsy.

I would like to use the camera on bnoth my PAL VA for my 35mm system and also as a brighter framing guide on my HD camcorder.

It needs to be bright,
have loop through,
BNC
Needs to connect to an Israeli arm
PAL and HD

I am looking for something that will hold its resale value (Like a Marrell or Preston)

Any ideas...

thanks

Hi,

Astro have some top stuff with every possible T&M measurement you could possibly imagine.

the astro monitors also get a recommendation from here.

a bit more expensive, but even more measurement (as TC basing readout checks, log-interfaces etc) offers

I actually saw this on a D20 shoot we did last month

The DM-3016 looks suitable

Very nice - any idea on price or where to see them in UK

thanks

Hi,

I have used the DM-3005A 6.4" monitor extensively and found it to be quite wonderful. B&H has them on their site for $5,399. Not cheap (thought not as bad as I feared) but it is without doubt a truly serious piece of kit.

I would suspect that the larger ones run similar software.

Hi Rolfe,

For a cheaper option you could look at the new Teletest 7" 0ZL7088 1-HDSDI in and 1 out - has an option for 2.35:1 and radio link. I have had a couple of the older teletest lcds with radio link for about 3 years and they are built well and have stood up to being around a directors neck - good for framing and focus.
