[Tig] Using multiple displays for coloring can be better?

Speaking from personal experience, at the BBC, every TK suite had two
(PAL) colour monitors.

Try as you may, you could get them looking identical on grey scales,
PLUGE, colour bars etc.

As soon as any film was run, they were always glaringly different,
resulting in the either the colourist asking the client which monitor
they preferred or the client asking the colourist which monitor they
should regard as the 'right' one. The only solution was to switch one of
them either to monochrome or off!

Moral - (and I think you can work it out for yourselves).
