hello

I am trying to hook up an ntsc monitor (I have not used it yet) to my power mac g5 to use as a vtr monitor when I edit so I can also color correct properly, etc etc.

Ive gotten conflicting information however, do I need an AJA board? or do I need to convert to ntsc scan rate. or is just something where I need to work with s-video.

would this: http://www.adorama.com/ACDVITVA.html
suffice? (I believe it comes with the g5...)

thanks for your help!

That device will allow you to use a television as a computer monitor, but it is not intended for a video feed.

What specific format are you working in and what are you using to capture?

Do have a camcorder?

The easy answer is to hook the camcorder up the computer via firewire, and go either RCA or S-video out from the camcorder to the NTSC monitor. The camcorder acts as an A/D converter, and BAM!, you've got your realtime preview.

Or you can get an A/D converter. I don't know how much those are or anything about them.

I believe you can use a deck for this as well?
