The Blackmagic Design SmartScope 4K 8-inch monitors allows you to either select a scope display or regular video. With a powerful combination that these monitors have to offer – you can monitor video on the one LCD while running scope as well such as waveform, audio view or parade display on the other screen.
The waveform display is ideal to display your adjusting video levels or matching black background levels when keying. Featuring a luminance waveform of the black and white levels. This is the perfect setting for output levels on your broadcast decks and to monitor your levels of production while you edit.
This is the perfect scope to measure your colours accurately in video, such as colour correcting of video. Vectorscope helps by showing when the colour has been removed or nulled out of the accurate white balance.
The real time RGB parade waveform view is the ideal scope for accurate colour correction. You can see the colour balance in ‘blacks’, ‘mids’ and ‘whites’, making it easy to balance colours for perfect looking images. RGB Parade allows you check for illegal colours because any video that drops below the black line, or above the 100% line, is an illegal RGB colour. Vectorscope view cannot show illegal video levels, because vectorscope only plots colours and not the luminance component of video. However, the RGB parade plots your video as R, G and B and so is the perfect way to keep track of illegal video levels. You can also select YUV parade display which shows the YUV component video as its transmitted down the SDI cable and is perfect for broadcast engineering analysis of SDI signals.
You can monitor all levels with 16 channels of audio metering for viewing every channel in the SDI video connection. This audio scope also allows you to easily monitor if there’s audio problems such as clipping and out of phase audio on the left or right display.
Loss of detail can occur if clipping of levels takes place during a live shoot which can cause huge problems
while trying to adjust the blacks or whites in your post-production. The Histogram is the best way of viewing your pixels in your video and allows give you to the full range of correcting the contrast and colour of video in post-production.
