Once you have filmed your video and are ready to playback your Oscar-caliber work of art you will need a monitor to watch it on. Some people watch their videos on television screens while others prefer to watch them on their computer monitors.
The quality of your film will generally depend on the resolution you filmed it in and the playback capabilities of your monitor. The more lines of resolution your monitor has, the better the image will look. The specifications and features of video monitors can often get complicated. Some monitors are pretty basic while others include all the bells and whistles.
A good monitor will let you adjust the color, contrast and other picture elements. Many monitors have remote controls and high definition capabilities. A lot of them come with various picture modes such as wide screen and zoom along with picture in picture. Make sure your monitor suits your needs and has all of the input and output features you need.
Monitors come in various sizes, styles and shapes. They can range in price from a couple of hundred dollars to almost $50,000.
