New tools have been included to assist in the signal monitoring, such as independent waveforms for Y, Cb and Cr, vectorscope and histogram, displayed in different colours for a quick identification of each tool. It is possible to select the line of the signal in the waveforms for a more precise analysis of the picture.
The camera calibration tools support correct camera settings:
- With luma check, the picture is generally displayed in b/w, and out of range luminance values (below 16 or over 235) are coloured in red (underexposure) or blue (overexposure).
- With false colour, the range of luminance values is scaled in ten different levels and displayed with different colours, making the luminance adjustment easier at extreme lighting conditions.
- With focus assist, the focused edges are highlighted when matching a certain level of sharpness configurable by menu)
Audio monitoring is possible thanks to the different input options (analogue and SDI-embedded) and outputs (analogue, digital AES-EBU, headphones and stereo built-in speakers). The on-screen meters, configurable in
size and transparency, display up to 16 channels in different scales (dBFS, BBC, DIN, Nordic, STD, NA, FRA, EBU). The audio phase indicator shows the phase relationship between left and right channels, with special signaling when channels are in phase.
One of the advantages of the 7000 series is the great range of tools and additional functions to monitor video signals. It is possible to overlay most of these applications on the picture. Nevetheless, the layout function offers different preset designs to allow the correct display of all the tools, optimizing the spacing, and turning the 7000 series monitors in compact rasterizer.
The new Dual-split displays two inputs and the corresponding WFM, vectorscope, IMD and tally info. A built-in dual spliter with no extra cost.
