It isn’t always appropriate to spend £30k on a grading monitor. Lower-budget productions may well be graded in a small suite – often doubling as the edit suite – with no cash available for high-end equipment. One option for these small suites is a monitor that sits halfway between a full grading unit and one designed for photography and print. The BenQ PV270 is a 27in post-production grading monitor with DVI-DP, HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2 inputs, but none of the I/O associated with higher-end monitors – SDI, analogue and the like.
