Which monitor is best for color accuracy?

Do I need 4K for color grading?
There is no definitive answer to this question as different filmmakers will need different types of monitors to grade 4K footage. However, it is generally recommended that filmmakers use a 4K monitor to ensure that the footage looks its best.
How bright should my monitor be for color grading?
If you're grading video footage with a monitor that is less than 25 brightness, you'll need to raise the brightness setting on the monitor to make it more comfortable for you.
Is a 4k monitor necessary for photo editing?
