Built-In Monitoring Tools

  • Focus peaking - The operator adjusts the focus control until the red outlines on the desired area are well visible, indicating optimal focus. For the best results, be sure the subject is properly exposed. Available Four colors - Red, Green, Blue, White.
  • Pixel-to-pixel -  The LCD Panel in this display has a native display of 1920x1080 pixels. A signal of any other resolution is scaled to fit this native resolution.There may be time when it is desired to view the incoming signal without scaling.Enabling Pixel To Pixel Mode turns off the scaling and displays a 1920x1080 pixel window of the original image.Each pixel of the panel displays one pixel of the original image.
  • Vectorscope, Waveform - will really aid you in getting beautiful shots that are properly exposed, and with vibrant, consistent color
  • False color - The false color feature utilizes a full spectrum of assigned color indicators, ensuring flawless shot exposure.As the camera
    Iris is adjusted, the subject of the images will change color basic on specific brightness values indicating optimal exposure.See included chart for color assignments.
  • Histogram - to graphically summarize the distribution of a univariate data set.
  • Zebra - Zebra Stripes is a feature that allows you to see where certain areas of brightness in the frame may be "blown out," or too bright.
