I've been applying color correction to a wedding video I shot recently. Thus far, I've been working on a MacBook Pro Retina with the brightness turned all the way up. When I view the same footage on my crappy LCD monitor it looks disgusting. Too bright, and a lot of noise showing that I can't see on my iMac or MacBook. So, how does one go about handling color and exposure correction? Is there a method to produce something that will look good on any monitor? Or should I just correct for a high quality monitor and hope my clients have something decent to view the final product on?
Here's an example of the variation. I took this photo of my a single video clip displayed across the center of two screens. The left screen is the MacBook the right is a $180 Acer LCD.
