I’m currently upgrading my studio a bit and was wondering how you guys go about showing video while mixing and recording. When looking at studio images on Google, I often see a big screen, probably fed by a beamer. Others have a big flatscreen hanging in front of the mixing desk in smaller studios. How is this done? Is this just a regular output of the graphics card and a normal second monitor, so the video window is dragged over and maximised? Or do you have a special hardware box whose sole purpose is to display video on a TV or beamer?
So when I’d like to have a 2 screen setup for Nuendo, one with timeline, one with mixer. And an additional screen for the movie, I just need a GFX card with 3 monitor outputs? Or special hardware?
I’m on a Mac btw. So maybe this limits my choice of hardware.
Thanks for a hint how this is best solved.
