This is my first time to come to this forum, nice to meet you! 

 

I have a question about a monitor to be set in a film production.

 

I have a 27-inch monitor, how can I set up the monitor steadily so that it is easy for the director to view it? 

 

I am looking for this type of monitor case (photo attached), however there is no products for 27-inch monitor. So, I want to ask for any suggestion or experience of setting a large monitor in a film production, and hopefully there are some photos for reference, thank you so much!

I just had a flight case built for a monitor. A bit of extra work was required to add a suitable threaded boss to the bottom so I can screw a spigot into it and put it on a rolling stand. But the case I just specified with the company that makes them - there's presumably a flight case manufacturer in Hong Kong or nearby.

I ve seen a basic 48x48 floppy cutter used very often for this purpose:

Sorry...didn't see the part about setting it up steadily.  But wouldn't just throwing it on a sturdy stand & setting up the cutter do the trick?

Thank you all for ur reply, I do think that the case suggested by Gregory is suitable for me.

 

 

However, I want to ask if there is a case that similar to the 1st image at #1:

http://www.bhphotovi...nitor_Case.html

 

 

which is:

Nylon case, allows cables set through the back of the case without putting the monitor out of the case.

Because I want a easy and convenient way to view it. However, the brand above doesn't provide products for 27" monitor, an suggestions?

 

Thank you so much!!!
