PowerBook G4 + HDV + 24" display?

Hi all,

I'm currently editing (no rendering or encoding) 1080i HDV from both a Sony HVR-A1E and a Canon HV30... on a PowerBook G4 with 1.67 cpu and 1.5GB of RAM.

I can cut and arrange footage quite happily on this machine, I have an 8-Core Mac Pro at work for the heavy work.

Now, I'm still working on the PowerBook's 15" display. I was hoping to purchase a 24" monitor to aid my home workflow.

I know the PowerBook can output to a 30" Apple Cinema display, but can it also power a display (24") and the HDV content running on the new display? The capture scratch, is running on a 500GB LaCie with FW800

Hope this is clear?

see vendor information in user profile
If it can run a 30" display, it will have no problems running a 24" one.....assuming of course, that the 24" has the proper type of connector/adapter......

Yes, you're right... but what I was wondering is wether the PowerBook can output HDV video on a secondary 24" display?

EDIT: The display. HP LP2475W
