Hi all,

Sorry for the noob question, but which actual 4K tv's work fine with Redray ? At 4K, of course, and 24P and 25P at least.

Thanks,

Kristin

I'm not aware of any 4K TV that doesn't work with the RR though I may be wrong. What's your budget for the TV? As of right now, 4K TV's range from $650-$20k. I recently picked up the LG 55" LA9650 4K Display with an IPS panel. It's amazing. For less than $2g you get a great panel. Yea, it's not huge, but for my edit bay, it's the perfect size.

I know that Sharp has the 70" AQUOS which is a great panel, has built in h265 encoding for 4K streaming, and is a very popular set. If I had $4g, I'd probably get that one.

any of those options far enough along to be used a CC monitors?

I have the 65" Sony X850A and it can be used for grading. Give me recent calibration in a decent viewing environment with scopes as a check for tint bias and levels - I'd do "one lights" (primary dailies grades) on it all day. Final color would be a separate discussion, especially since the consumer targeted displays lack the kinds of toolsets typically used by professional calibrators as well as often having "enhancements" that cannot be completely disabled.

In May of 2014 the few SDI (Pro) UHD/4K monitor vendors are asking for a price premium on their products that I believe will abate substantially over the next 2 years. So I decided to get a good consumer monitor to tide me over. I wanted one that was large enough to show the value of 6 more megapixels. I also prefer viewing for QC (mostly focus, continuity) on a decent sized panel even though it may not have more actual pixels than a smaller UHD/4K monitor. It just seems easier to spot issues. YMMV.

Cheers - #19

Hi Chris and Blair,

Thanks for the ideas. Apparently Redray doesn't do 25P 4K, so I guess I'll have to wait before investing ;-(

Cheers,

Kristin

We have the 55" Seiki (under $1000), and while it is better than the older 50" model, it still has some dropouts once in a long while, and is limited to 24hz in its refresh.

Not bad for the price (at this time)...

We have a few Seiki TV, they always have new models and works well with the 4K trade show display
We have 65" which works best, we have a few 50" and 39" as well
