In this episode:
Carey and Steve discuss why you might want to use a control surface, and the options in controllers that are out there. We’ll also discuss monitoring very pragmatically, and offer some straight talk on the number one job of your monitor. It’s probably not what you think!
BONUS: Check out the video embedded below on “Metamerism Failure”. A scientific explanation of why monitors can be accurately calibrated and still not match each other!

BONUS: Explaining Metamerism Failure
Flanders Scientific, makers of very high quality reference monitors has released this video… an excellent explanation of metamerism failure. The best, most accurate explanation I’ve ever seen as to why different monitor types can measure as calibrated accurately and still look different to your eyes when compared SIDE-BY-SIDE. This is an excellent counterpoint that illustrates why it might not be the best idea for me to be running my LCD, CRT and plasma monitors all at once in my edit/grading suite.
I strongly urge you to watch this video. Then watch it again. It’s dropping serious knowledge that will help you understand human vision, display technology and generally be a better video pro.
