10 Best Monitors for Video Editing in India 2020

HTML Image as link Qries

A good monitor can be arguably called the most essential equipment a video editor would require. A video editor without a good monitor is like an artist with no paint brush. So, I am here today to tell you what to look out for when buying a monitor for video editing, and also provide 10  examples of monitors, offering the best value for money. 

The first thing one should check when buying a monitor for video editing is the panel.

There are multiple types of monitor LCD panels– IPS, PLS, AHVA, TN, VA. The latter two are more suited towards gaming, especially competitive, with their generally fast response times and higher than average refresh rates. But, when considering video editing, IPS(In-plane switching) is the way to go.

These panels have usually great viewing angles(178 degrees) and a higher bit depth. Its architecture means that it has better contrast and a good consistency across a range of viewing angles. PLS panels are basically IPS panels with a couple of minor advantages, and are exclusive to Samsung Monitors, making it Samsung’s version of IPS panels, so to speak. AVHA is also extremely similar to IPS and PLS with rare differences.

A competitor to the IPS panel would be the OLED panels. OLED panels are extremely expensive though. But, the panel is not one without any improvements. In these panels, black areas have no remaining brightness, viewing angle stability is excellent without brightness and contrast taking a hit, unlike IPS panels. Its colour gamut is very wide and its response times are very short too.

The other things to look out for are screen size and resolution.

A larger screen size is more desirable, as video editing requires a lot of screen real estate, and a high resolution to edit videos in higher resolution. It should be noted that a 4k monitor is absolutely necessary to edit videos in 4k. Display area is another factor which signifies the percentage of the screen space that actually shows us the image.

But, enough about the technicalities, lets dive into the real stuff.

SIDE NOTE: It should go without saying that if you order a monitor online, upon its arrival you should always run colour tests to check if there are dead pixels and if the backlight is bleeding or not. Also, the list will be pretty limited to monitors with IPS panels, although OLED is objectively better, its barely available and is also extremely expensive.

All monitors shown here are available on Amazon. This list is in no particular order, as colour perception varies from individual to individual, and preferences vary too. This aims at providing options of monitors with the best value for money.

Best Monitors for Video Editing in India

1. Acer CB282K 

I have chosen this monitor because it provides 4k display, with a lot of other great features for a lot less than the usual amount.

The Ultimate Selling Point of this monitor is also its 4k display, and high colour support and the 10 bit panel depth.

This monitor has an IPS panel, and a screen size of 28inch. The resolution is 4k(3840×2160) UHD, with a widescreen aspect ratio, thus giving more screen size, enabling us to fit a lot of things into the screen.

The panel bit depth is 10 bits(8 bits + FRC) and supports 1073741824 colours(30 bits). The 4k screen also gives us the ability to produce videos at a much higher quality(4k) It has AMD Radeon Freesync, which I’ll explain below.

It has integrated Stereo Speakers, 1 Display port, 2 HDMI 2.0 Ports(including a HDMI cable). It has a 60Hz Refresh Rate, a response time of 4ms, and its image contrast ratio is 1000:1 and its dynamic contrast ratio is 1000000001:1. Contrast ratio is the property of a display system which can be defined as the ratio of the luminance of the brightest colour to that of the darkest colour, and so, a higher contrast ratio is always desired in a monitor. The backlight is W-LED, and it has a brightness of 300 nits. Display area is 89.67%. Screen coating is Antiglare/Matte(3H)

AMD Freesync is an adaptive synchronization technology for LCD Displays which enable variable refresh rate, to prevent tearing and stuttering caused by misalignment between the screen’s refresh rate and the contents frame rate. But this feature is more suited to gamers, and not video editors.

This monitor has BlueLightShield Pro. Designed by Acer themselves, it utilizes true low blue light panels to ensure undistorted colours, and so it effectively shifts your display’s blue light peak to a less hazardous range, reducing the ratio of harmful blue light coming from your screen. Acer ComfyView reduces light reflection for more comfortable viewing, as the name suggests. These features enable for people to work hours on end without their eyes getting tired, and improves work output and productivity in general. Quite important for someone editing videos, I’d say. It has a 90% DCI P3 Wide Colour Gamut.

Colour Gamut is the entire range of colours and tones achievable by an imaging system. More specifically, the portion of the colour spectrum that can be reproduced when transforming from RGB Colours to CMYK colours.

It has VESA Wall mount support, a removable stand, height adjustment, landscape/portrait pivot with left pivot being 0 degrees and right pivot being 90 degrees. It can also be swivelled 180 degrees on both sides. It can be tilted forward at a maximum of 5 degrees, and backward at a maximum of 35 degrees. All in all, This monitor seems pretty good for the price.

2. Acer ED322Q

Picked this monitor as it provides a lot of screen size AND a curved widescreen. Its ultimate selling point is the sharp 1800r curve, and high display area.

This is a 31.5” Full HD(1920×1080) monitor, sporting a curved widescreen, which helps in video editing as it can fit a lot of stuff in the screen. The curve helps in retaining image quality across the full screen. For connectivity, it has HDMI,VGA and DVI. Again, it has AMD FreeSync, Acer Blue Light Shield, Acer Flickerless technology, and Acer ComfyView and a Zero Frame Design. The curves are sharp 1800r and as is expected, it has a 178 degrees viewing angle.

The response time is 4ms, while the refresh rate is 75Hz, though these factors do not matter much for video editing. The screen has an anti glare matte finish(3H), and its tilt can be adjusted too. The panel has 8bits depth, providing less colour depth than 10 bit but requires less GPU power. It has an aspect ratio of 16:9.

There are a total of 16777216 colours and 24 bits. The NTSC colour space is 85% and the display area is 92.97%. The greatest drawback of this monitor is its VA panel, which has less colour accuracy and picture quality than IPS.

3. Lenovo L27i-28

I have chosen this monitor as this is a monitor offering great colour depth and quality for the price. The ultimate selling point is its cheap price for a fairly high end monitor.

The Lenovo L27i-28 is one of the more higher end budget monitors. Its resolution is 1920×1080  and it is Full HD.It has a static contrast of 1000:1 and a dynamic contrast of 3000000:1, with a variable refresh rate ranging from 49Hz to 76Hz.

The NTSC colour space is 72%, and the display area is 89.66%. The panel is IPS, and its bit depth is 8 bits(6 bits+FRC). FRC, meaning Frame Rate Control, is a method for achieving greater colour depth in TFT LCD displays.

What it basically does is that it continuously switches between two colours in the same pixel, to achieve a colour which is a shade between the two colours. Modern 6 bit+FRC panels are extremely similar to  true 8 bit panels, so it really is not a factor to worry about. The monitor supports 16777216 colours(24 bits).

Pixel density(which is the number of pixels in an unit of length, with the decrease of the display size and the increase of its resolution, the pixel density increases) is 81 pixels per inch(32 pixels per centimeter). The backlight is W-LED. As usual, the viewing angle, both horizontal and vertical, is 178 degrees. Minimum response time is 4ms, average is 6ms and the maximum response time is 14ms. The display coating is anti glare/matte making it ideal for long hours of work.

4. LG 24UD58

I have chosen this monitor as it is the cheapest 4k monitor available. 

Its ultimate selling point is that it provides 4k resolution, good screen size and panel, good panel depth, and display price for an extremely low price(23,999), compared to other 4k monitors.

LG is known for making pretty good monitors and this one is no exception. This monitor is probably the cheapest 4k(3840×2160) monitor I could find. The screen size is 23.8 inches. The panel is AH-IPS, which is advanced high performance IPS, and is better than the generic IPS. It provides rich colour in all viewing angles, has better screen quality and colour depth.

The panel depth is 10 bits(8 bits + FRC). There are 1073741824 colours available(30 bits), which is far higher than what you usually get with monitors at this price. Aspect ratio, as expected, is 16:9. The display area is a bit less, with the screen covering 84.8% of the monitor itself, which is a bit of downside, but its still tolerable as the other parts of the monitor more than make up for a single nitpick. The backlight is W-LED, and sRGB(which is a colour space designed and developed jointly by HP and Microsoft in 1996), is 99%.

The NTSC colour space is 72%, which again, is a bit less. The brightness is 250 nits and the static contrast ratio is 1000:1, while the dynamic contrast ratio is 5000000:1. The viewing angle is 178 degrees, and the minimum response time is 5ms. The coating on the display is Anti-glare/Matte(3H). The refresh rate is from 56Hz-61Hz.

Extra features include AMD Freesync, Black Stabilizer, Dynamic Action Sync, DDC/CI, Flicker Free Tech, Picture by Picture and Screen Split.

Black Stabilizer is an adjustable feature that basically brightens the gamma in dark regions, which can be turned off, and should be for any kind of editing. All of these features, coupled with 4k resolution and extremely good colour depth make this the ideal monitor for medium budget video editors.

5. LG 22MK600M

Picked this monitor as I have used it personally, and I can say that its colour accuracy is one of the best available under 10k. 

This 21.5 inch monitor has a resolution of 1980×1080, and is FHD. The panel is IPS, and the panel bit depth is 8 bits(6bits+FRC). The maximum number of colours is 16777216 colours(24 bits) and the aspect ratio is 16:9. The pixel density is 102ppi(40ppcm) and the display area is 89.03%, allowing for a lot of content to fit in the screen. The backlight is W-LED and the NTSC colour space is 72%. The brightness is 250 nits and the static contrast is 1000:1.

The viewing angle, again, is 178 degrees and the minimum response time is 5ms. The display has an anti glare coating. The model linked here is the narrow bezel model, but a FHD IPS model is available too, which does not have narrow bezels. VESA wall mount support is available along with a removable stand. 

The monitor’s height cannot be adjusted, and no feature is there to switch between landscape and portrait mode. Although the panel cannot be swivelled left or right, a forward or backward tilt is possible, maximum forward tilt being 2 degrees and maximum backward tilt being 15 degrees.

6. Dell P2419H

I have chosen this monitor due to its great pixel density and pitch. The colour space is also admirable.  Its ultimate selling point is its maximum colour count and colour depth.

This is another 23.8 inch FHD 1080p(1920×1080) monitor, with an IPS panel. The panel bit depth is not pure 8 bits, though(6 bits+FRC). There are 16777216 colours(24 bits).

10. HP EliteDisplay E273Q

I have chosen this monitor because of the great panels it has(AH IPS or PLS), although the resolution should have been 4k at this price.

Its ultimate selling point is also its great panels and the features it and the monitor itself provides(along with display area).

The HP EliteDisplay E273Q is one of the more high end 1440p monitors. It is a QHD monitor, supporting resolutions upto 2560×1440. The screen size is 27 inch. There are actually two variants of this monitor with different panels– the AH-IPS, and the PLS.

 Although I have said this in the beginning, I’ll say it again: Always check for dead pixels and backlight bleeding in a monitor you order online. 

LG 24UD58 is the go-to monitor in my opinion, offering the best value for money. But at the end of the day, one should consider all pros and cons of a monitor before buying it.

And that concludes our list! Tell us what you think of it and feel free to suggest changes.
