    DVI monitoring for MC software only version

    I use MC Adrenaline HD at a nearby facility and an Xpress Pro HD at my office.  The new Media Composer software only version is supposed to support DVI monitoring.  Does anyone know if the DVI option is capable of being broadcast quality with the appropriate monitor?  (I understand that consumer monitors are limiting.)  Don't know if anyone knows the answer to this but I thought I'd give it a whirl.  I've never used an LCD or DVI for edit preview before and am curious.

    Thanks,

    ...and it would be oh-so-functional if the same breakout cable Avid is supplying to the SDI Mojo could take the DVI signal from the graphics host and give you BNCs to connect to a true broadcast monitor - of course it wouldn't carry audio signals, though.

    I think it was wmcole a couple of days back that gave a good post on DVI monitoring to LCD's.
    My understanding is that the DVI output to full screen monitoring will be a feature of all .5 releases. Pro, MC and MCA.

    I thought the webcast this morning was going to cover this but it did not

    Me too.  They kind of overlooked the DVI feature.  I think it's one of the more exciting features in the new systems. We're considering a laptop MC solution with a DVI monitor that we can take on site with a HVX200 and do roughcuts with.  Having a lightweight HD monitoring solution that's broadcast quality (or dang close) would be sweet.
