waveform vector scope histogram

Video Analysis Assistant Pattern
Waveform / Vector scope / Histogram
This essential feature assists with the calibration of professional video cameras. It shows the overall brightness of the image assisting the video professional in correcting exposure. The waveform feature also checks the evenness of the lighting when lighting a chromakey or background.
Vector scope shows how saturated the image is and where the pixels in the image land on the color spectrum. It can also be displayed in various sizes & positions, that allows users to monitor color gamut range in real time.
Color Histogram
Color histogram is a graphical display of the distribution of tones, shows the Red, Green and Blue channels in overlay histogram. Suitable for HD-SDI and HDMI signal monitoring.


  • All Scopes Mode
    This mode shrinks your video image to approximately the size of a 17.3" display and tiles your choice of vectorscope, histogram, and waveform on the border of your video.


Brightness Histogram
The Brightness Histogram is a quantitative tool to check the picture brightness. The feature shows the distribution of brightness in an image as graph of brightness along the horizontal axis (Left: Dark, Right: Bright) and a stack of the number of pixels at each level of brightness along the vertical axis.
Brightness Histogram


  • Embedded Audio Monitoring
    The Audio Level Meters provide numerical indicators and headroom levels. It can generate accurate audio level displays to prevent errors during monitoring. The audio meter is green, and will turn yellow when exceeds -20dB, and turn red when exceeds -9dB.

Peaking Focus Assist
The Peaking Filter is used to aid the camera operator in obtaining the sharpest possible picture. When activated, the internal processor will display a colored highlight on the screen where sharp edges appear. You can switch the putline color between red, green, blue and white according to different tone of the subject. Peaking focus assist has High-low level to adjust, and also available during video zoom-in.

False Color
The False Color filter is used to aid in the setting of camera exposure. As the camera Iris is adjusted, elements of the image will change color based on the luminance or brightness values. This enables proper exposure to be achieved without the use of costly, complicated external test equipment.
False Color


Exposure (zebras)
The Exposure is used to assist in exposure adjustment in the mode of Zebra Pattern, it is considered overexposed and displays the moving warning lines onto the over exposed areas.


Check Field
Check Field is an assistant function to adjust camera color settings. Under the check field mode, you can use red, green, blue or mono pixels to generate the image, because hue and saturation can be adjusted more quickly and accurately in this environment.
