    Is the LHe cheaper than the LHi? If so, that’s the cheapest one.

    If you don’t have a proper monitor, you’re really not saving much money in the long run. I say this because you won’t be able to see all the fine details that you often need to see to find problems, nor are you viewing your color grading in the same color space that you’re actually working in.

    You should consider renting a 1080 monitor for this job, or maybe you can rent a room that has the proper setup.

    OK Lets be very clear here you said 2K at 2048pixels and variants x1080, x1152, x1566 –

    working at that frame size eliminates all but the Kona 3 card, since that is the only card that AJA makes that supports the various 2K sizes in realtime.

    If you are only talking about 1920×1080 output- then the lowest cost option for viewing would be the IoExpress for about $1000 USD, followed by the LHE,LHI and the lastly the highend Kona 3 card.
