Monitors For Video Editing & Vfx

Good monitors for video editing and VFX work share a lot of the qualities desirable for still image editing use, but there are some key specifications and features to look for when considering the video domain.

You might want to start out by reading our general guide to monitors for video editing, then circle back here for our current recommendations:

Best Of The Best

The CG319X is the current benchmark monitor for video work from Eizo, the most respected name in the high end colour accurate monitor business.  

Used by some of the world's best VFX studios - like WETA Digital and Studio Ghibli - this full true 4K monster offers superb accuracy, DCI true blacks, and fully automatic calibration with a in-built high quality calibration sensor, very generous working area, and true full 4K resolution.  It can show nearly all of the DCI-P3 colour space with extreme precision.

If you've got the budget, this is without doubt the monitor to own for high end video and FX work.

Video Editing - High End

The Eizo CG247X is the smaller companions to the CG319X.  

The CG247X is the much smaller, 2K version - again with amazing colour accuracy, excellent automatic in-built calibration, and fantastic support for DCI true blacks.

The CG279X sits in-between these two monitors, with 2560 by 1440 resolution, meaning you can edit & preview 1080p footage at 1:1 and still have room for timing strips etc. on screen.  It's our personal favourite here for those needing deep blacks for video work - we think overall strikes an excellent balance of performance, size, and price for video and VFX work.

Video Editing - General Purpose

For the first really excellent 4K monitor at a reasonable price from Eizo - the CS2740 is one many of us have been waiting years for.

If you're looking for 4K on more of a budget, then BenQ's SW271C has proven a popular and reliable choice. Check out our review here.

At the more modest end of the price scale, and fine if you don't need 4k (and let's face - most cutting/editing work is done using a tiny proxy image anyway!) - then you have two good 'classic' 2.5K 27" options.
