Hello. We have two Mac systems which are used for video production. One system uses Final Cut Pro and the other uses Avid (Media Composer v3.5 with Mojo DX hardware).
I am unfamiliar with video, other than knowing there are two basic color spaces (SDTV/NTSC and HDTV/Rec. 709). I need to calibrate the monitors on these systems, but I do not know what I should calibrate to. My thought is that the video software does not do any color managing, so I should create profiles for each of the video specs by setting the primaries and gamma that match the two video color spaces.
Does this sound correct? Any better suggestions?
Also, I don’t know what luminance I should set these monitors to either.
I appreciate any advice you can give. Thanks in advance!
