I have been thinking about getting a small onboard mountable monitor, like a 7" (or thereabouts). This will not be used as a production monitor -- it will mostly be used for framing, so the image quality doesn't have to be top of the line (ie, I don't need a $6000 Astro Systems box). However, more importantly, I would like it to be versatile: various input options, resolutions, formats, etc.
I would like it to:
Operate both NTSC and PAL.
Both HD (1080p, 1080i, 720p) and SD native.
SDI/HD-SDI, S-Video, composite, BNC inputs, and a VGA (15-Pin) or DVI input would be great too.
At least 1 output (any).
Other niceties would be onscreen histogram and the like, but not a necessity.
Doesn't need to be wireless -- yet, but I would like to have this possibility in the future. I understand if it may just be easier to get it right away.
I have not really come up with a price I'd like to spend, but from my searching, it seems to come down a lot to manufacturer. I know of certain brands, like Marshall, but I'm unfamiliar with others, such as Tote Vision, Nebtek, Ikan, Datavideo, and others. I'm looking for something decent (not trash), somewhat affordable, and compatible. I'm perfectly fine with saving money and going with a better model that's been used (as long as it works fine, of course). Does anyone have experience with some other brands and how they stack up?
