Hello everyone, 

 

Looking through the forum it appears this discussion has been had before, though some of the links and model numbers are now out of date. 

 

What are your recommendations for a small analog program/return monitor for broadcast applications? Bonus if it can also take HD-SDI. Any specific model numbers or links would be most appreciated.

 

I saw some recommendations to just buy a couple super cheap monitors off of Amazon. If I were to go that route, what's your advice for power? 

 

Thank you for your help!

Ryan

http://www.ebay.com/itm/171519470067 it doesn't have to be pretty. Just good enough for you to see framing and if you're in someone's shot.

Thanks David. How would I power a monitor like that?

It has a 2.1mm DC barrel input. Same one you'd find on a blackmagic converter or a decimator.

Thank you very much for your help. Do you have any thoughts on where to purchase a power cable to run off my rig? I have a 4-pin video/power and 5-pin recorder out of my lower junction box. I'm having trouble Googling around to find a cable from one of those to a 2.1mm DC barrel. Is it a custom cable, and if so, any recommendations on who to contact to have one made? I appreciate it!

https://mediablackout.net/ is good, though there's a slightly long lead time on some orders. You can also solder your own if you're handy.
