I wanted to send my condolences to all of my friends at FSI Monitors at the loss of their Founder and father Dan Desmet.
Dan was without a doubt one of the nicest people I have ever worked with in this industry and his passing leaves a void that will be hard to fill.
I want to take a minute and publicly thank Bram and the team at Flanders Scientific for the assistance at this NAB. I know that nearly everyone here on the Cow has heard about Walter and Shane’s glowing reviews of the FSI monitors and I now gladly add my name to that list.
I have been carrying a 17’ FSI unit around for about 3 months now and it was an absolute savior at NAB. For the record the last 5 years I have had to drag an entire edit bay to Las Vegas. That includes desktop, Kona 3, 8T raid and until this year I used 2 displays, one for the computer and one to monitor. Well, this year my Cinema display arrived in 3 pieces. In desperation I plugged a DVI cable from my computer into my LM-1760W and low and behold I was able to use the FSI monitor for both the computer and to monitor the HDSDI feed just by pressing the input selection buttons on the front.
When someone tried to check the calibration setting controls and all they succeeding in doing was throwing the units calibration totally out of whack. Bram and Johan were kind enough to recalibrate the unit at the show. While it is not possible for everyone here on the Cow to get that kind of customized service at a trade show, I would not hesitate a millisecond to recommend the FSI displays to anyone, because with people like this behind a company, I know anyone I send their way will get the best service and support possible and I wanted to thank them publicly for saving my butt.
