    Hello all. Iím looking to buy a color reference monitor and I want to make sure I get my setup right.

    I edit on a 27Ē iMac (2013 model). The external monitor Iím looking to buy is the BenQ BL2711U 27" 16:9 4K UHD IPS Monitor.

    Do I need to also purchase the Blackmagic Design UltraStudio Mini Monitor Playback Device?

    Thanks for any advice you can offer.

    Yes. Only this will make sure that you see the unaltered signal.

    Okay thanks.

    Are there any recommendations out there for smaller reference monitors? I'd prefer something closer to 20" if possible.
