Yes it is true all computer monitors can be calibrated with a host of magic downloads and well priced programmes but I repeat “The colours you see on your computer, no matter how expensive your computer monitor, will not look the same on a television set or projected.

Re: Working with HDV for projection at competition. HELP PLEASE

Sony tape decks the same as I tested on.

Forgot to mention in my brief that outside the festival hall was a monitor attached to the projectionists desk the image on that was excellent so say those watching from the bar

Re: The professional HXR-NX5

We chose the NX5 for the following reasons; 1. Price 2. 10/11 hour recording 3. Approx same size as our Z1's which we are replacing (950 Euros if you want to come to Brussels to collect) 4.
