When you consider how many important pieces of equipment can be found in a recording studio, it's understandable why an audio engineer would want to free up as much space as possible in their main work area - after all, a clutter-free workspace means a clutter-free headspace. For this reason, it only makes sense that flat LCD monitors are the standard display screen for desktop computers in recording studios. Short for "liquid crystal display", LCD monitors are thin, lightweight and boast exceptional viewing quality.
As you browse, you might notice that the monitors in this section are LED-backlit. Basically, an LED screen is just the latest generation of LCD TV; it uses light-emitting diodes instead of fluorescent tubes. For a perfect example, feast your eyes on the Apple Thunderbolt Display. Featuring built-in Thunderbolt technology, this LCD monitor gives you more pixels and more possibilities than you could ever imagine. For the ultimate viewing experience, it has a 27" LED-backlit screen and it even includes a MagSafe connector that can charge/power your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. Crystal clear from every angle, the Apple Thunderbolt is just what you need to put your editing, mixing and mastering skills into action.
Another amazing monitor is the Apple Cinema HD Display 23" Flat Panel. Its super-wide screen display makes it easier than ever to arrange and fit documents, palettes, timelines and extra windows. Plus, it has 2560 x 1600 optimal resolution with over 16.7 million colors. Along with dual-link DVI connectivity, two FireWire 400 ports and a self-powered, two-port USB 2.0 hub, the Apple Cinema HD Display Flat Panel would be a definite upgrade to any home studio setup.
If you're thinking about updating the LCD monitor in your studio, then this is the section for you. These HD flat panel screens can be found in the world's stop recording facilities, and you'll understand why quickly after witnessing the results.
