Vectoroscope, waveform monitor and histogram on a compact unit that requires only an HD-SDI or HDMI monitor. Video image quality is often determined by a combination of multiple factors, such as camera alignment and calibration. The location of production and brands of connected video devices, especially under field electronic production (EFP) conditions, can cause variable image quality in terms of brightness, color saturation and white balance between different sources of video. Traditionally, experienced camera operators adjust the equipment before a production in order to avoid too much time and resources that is spent in adjusting images in post-production.
In order to make this alignment process easier and more efficient, Datavideo introduces the VS-100, a cost-effective sampling Vectorscope and waveform monitor. This unit provides fast, accurate and standardized ways to calibrate and align signals from cameras and other video equipment. Its small size and its DC power input mean it can be an engineering tool anywhere when paired with an HD / SD monitor like the Datavideo TLM-700HD or a rack study tool when paired with a TLM monitor -702HD. Alternatively, it can be used with any HDMI or SDI monitor.
The VS-100 can be used to test and compare the accuracy of incoming video signals from connected cameras and / or equipment. The VS-100 can accept SDI or HD-SDI inputs for signal analysis. The VS-100 can be configured to provide a clean video loop in SDI / HD-SDI, while allowing technical monitoring on your HDMI output. Alternatively, the analyzed signal may also be displayed as an HD-SDI output of 1280x720.
Rugged and compact single unit that requires only an HD-SDI or HDMI monitor.
Menu choice of Vectorscope, Histogram, Waveform and Parade displays as well as clean Video Display output (SDI to HDMI conversion).
SDI/HD-SDI loop through – can provide clean pictures or technical monitoring.
Automatically detects and locks to NTSC, PAL or HD signals.
Embedded SDI audio peak meter with selectable monitoring for four stereo pairs.
Switchable 4:3/16:9 video thumbnail when input signal is SD-SDI.
Headphone jack audio monitoring socket with menu based volume control.
Save and Recall trace menu options for quick and easy overlay comparison of video traces.
Parade Display can be toggled between RGB and YCbCr.
Vectorscope can be toggled between 75% and 100% graticules/bars.
Waveform detail can be zoomed 20%, 40%, 60% and 100% - various parts of the waveform can then viewed by changing the X Delay value.
Capture sampling can be by Field1, Field 2 or Frame.
DC 12V operation makes the unit ideal for field or studio operation.
1 year warranty, expandable to 3 for free, previous registration on the web of Datavideo.
