That there is actually a DVI to HDMI cable, so that opens up a huge range of choices (I thought I needed a set w/DVI connection only which only a few have). Now I'm even more confused!
I am a videographer by trade and my company is opening up a studio where we plan on mounting 5-8 42" (abt. - could be a bit smaller) plasmas or LCD's on the walls which will display our work. Right now, most everything we will be displaying is SD, but we are filming more and more in HDV (1080i) so I'd like to keep that in the back of my head while shopping. The content will be displayed on the screens via an imac so there needs to be a DVI connection. People will be viewing the screens from all over the room, and sometimes will be standing close to the screen when selecting content. I have been reading lots of reviews all over the net and am still not sure what is the best option (Plasma vs. LCD) and which brand is best for the money? Thanks for any help in making my decision easier! Here is the summary of my ideal flat-screen TV:
1. Fabulous resolution (1080p)
2. High contrast ratio
3. Wide viewing area
4. DVI connection
