Green Screen Monitors

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

After listening to "Walking Backwards", I've noticed they talk about green screen monitors quite a bit. I'd love to learn more about them, the pros and cons vs LCD, if people still use them, etc... I realize this is probably a very old topic. I've been running into glare quite a bit on my LCD.

Thanks in advance!!!

I've flown one before. I also own one that is broken. :( I liked it so much more than an HD monitor. I don't really care about color or anything. I just want to be able to see outside. There's no HD monitor I've seen yet that's even close to a green monitor. Unfortunately they're going the way of the buffalo. If your rig is set up for HD you're already beyond the technology unless you reverse engineer and get a downconverter to standard def.  But a couple of top tier ops I know still fly the green monitor.

I think at this point, people might kind of look at you weird if you were a young guy showing up to set with something that old though. It's a weird trade off.
