HDMI preview monitor recommendations

Not an OLED, but I’ve been using a Sony 42"(?) LCD screen for years as a main monitor for video synthesis - it’s fine, no screen burn etc… it even does pretty decent scaling from SD component to whatever resolution it’s using… it’s probably about 10 years old now… & I won’t be replacing it anytime soon…


I’ve got a lg A1 in the studio I can use. I ended up buying this after having bought a C1 a couple years ago and loving the watching experience.
The A1 is a stripped down version of the C1 but I don’t need 120Hz or HDMI 2.1 for the studio ATM.

I am very conscious about what I use on these TVs and for how long. Probably much more that I need to be.

I also wonder about potential differences between the units.

the OLED isn’t my only output monitor so I really only use it when I want that kind of view.

OLEDs really are something special!

Have you had any screen burn/issues with them so far for video synthing stuffs?

no neither of them have any kind of screen burn in

Also looking for recomendations especially models easy to find from europe/germany/switzerland…

Love the seetech and its variety of inputs, the 13” is great and I like the smaller dot pitch and footprint than the 17”, but in hindsight maybe 17” is great too. Color and screen is great.

I also got a BM video assist 7” 12g recently and that screen is super good, HDR screens with video synthesis are superb. Side by side with seetech and you see a big difference in saturation and color, seetech almost looks washed out in comparison, but maybe I should tweek seetech’s brightness and contrast a bit :joy:

I wonder about using a broadcast safe limiter on your output inline before an OLED panel, might help prevent any worries if setup right.

for preview monitors, especially, I’d be tempted to just look for cheap flat screen tvs off ebay/facebook marketplace etc etc - decent brand smallish ones can be had for very little - brightness and contrast can be adjusted to get decent colour etc… especially if you look around a bit - I got 4*9" jvc crt pvms for 40 quid each and an ok 14" portable crt tv for 15 quid, for example

Check the Mentioned seetec monitor

What about this Seetec model FPV-819A?

Should be fine for sd stuff. If you need a cheap option and want hd/sd timings check the lillyput as7 (±100 euro on ebay kleinanzeigen). But Hdmi in & out. I use it on my bm intensity shuttle hdmi out or on the bm updowncrosshd hdmi output.

One of these 7" Lilliput, a year later the panel is bugging a bit, lines on the left side of picture, was quoted need to pay shipping and $90 to repair, just been living with it for the moment since it’s a $160 item.
