Monitors for video editing


If you are buying a monitor for video editing, you need a widescreen monitor with high resolution and at least 10-bit colour depth.


When choosing a monitor for video editing, first focus on its size and resolution

Screen size and resolution

High resolution and a large screen provide better working conditions. With higher resolution, you get a more detailed image and more screen space to work with. Larger screens allow you to preview multiple things at once, keeping everything clear and organised.

Screen Size (1"= 2.54 cm)24"25"- 32"33"and larger
Resolution needed for solid image qualityFull HD (1920 × 1080 pixels) or higherWQHD (2560 × 1440 pixels) or higher4K (3840 × 2160 pixels) or higher

1 or 2 monitors

When choosing the size of the monitor, consider how many monitors you use for work.

  • 1 monitor – a model with a screen size of 27" and larger provides a sufficiently clear and spacious work area..
  • 2 or more monitors – allow you to effectively work with multiple applications at the same time. In this case, you can choose a smaller screen of about 24". If you are planning to use multiple monitors, make sure to select the same model. This prevents differences in colour reproduction.

What else should you consider when buying a video editing monitor


Before purchasing, make sure the monitor has at least one same port as your computer. If not, you won’t be able to connect your new monitor to it.

basic monitor connectors for video editing - VGA, DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort
