Hi

I am wondering how are people editing on their machines with broadcast monitoring devices. These introduce lag and as FCPX doesnt have desktop delay, either there is fcpx GUI or the broadcast monitor delayed.

When working alone I can just use TV as second monitor but thats just preview
1. that doesnt say anything about the quality and color of output even on calibrated display (RGB vs YUV)
2. A/V introduces slight delay too, so i just have to use second display for viewers
3. not proper dealing with various fps (PAL land, cant say for NTSC) in gui viewers, as displays are 60Hz

Would rather prefer robust workstation setup as with all other NLEs where your gui, your output monitoring are in sync, although there is slight delay when u push keys. Ofc no lag anywere is preffered but not sure its possible.

Looking for tips and advice on your setups or workflows of dealing with these

I've never had delays. Specifically what hardware are you using?
