Vectorscope and Waveform Monitor
What we think:
Small enough to pocket. Powerful enough to calibrate all your equipment. Very easy to use. Unavoidably low price. The Datavideo VS-100 is a great video engineering tool.
Video image quality is often determined by a combination of multiple factors such as camera alignment and calibration. The location of the production and the brands of connected video devices especially under Electronic Field Production (EFP) conditions can cause variable image quality in terms of brightness, colour saturation and white balance between different video sources. Traditionally, experienced camera operators would align equipment before a production in order to avoid too much time and resources being spent on adjusting images in post production. In order to make this alignment process easier and more efficient, Datavideo presents the VS-100, a cost-effective Sampling Vectorscope and Waveform monitor. This unit provides quick, accurate and standardized ways to calibrate and align signals from cameras and other video equipment. Its small size and DC voltage input means that it can be a go-anywhere engineering tool when paired with a HD / SD monitor like the Datavideo TLM-700HD or a rack based studio tool when paired with a TLM-702HD monitor. 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 cameras and/or connected equipment. The VS-100 can accept either SDI or HD-SDI input for signal analysis. The VS-100 can be set up to provide a clean video loop through on SDI/HD-SDI whilst still allowing technical monitoring on its HDMI output. Alternatively the scope view can also be displayed as a 1280 x 720 HD-SDI output.
VS-100 Supported SDI / HD-SDI Input Video Formats
NOTE: All VS-100 scope views are displayed at 1280 x 720p regardless of input video format..
Vectorscope and Waveform monitoring unit.
Video test and measurement can be complex and costly. Not with the Datavideo VS-150, a unit that is preconfigured for fast video monitoring and signal analysis. It's straight-forward, flexible and cost-effective - a great choice for essential technical checks.
Desktop version of the VS-100 Vectorscope with traditional button access to the different modes (unlike rotary dial on the pocket size VS-100). With HD/SD SDI inputs, it can test feeds in a large number of formats, from 576i and 720 50p to 1080i and 1080 25p.With HDMI outputs, it can be used with cost-effective … more->> HD monitors while its SDI ports can be set up as a loop-through as part of the production technology chain.The unit is 1RU high and ½ rack wide.
The vectorscopes in Final Cut Pro, Edius or Adobe Premiere Pro are very effective for assessing and correcting video in the edit suite. However, getting colours, blacks and whites right in-camera during the shoot is a far quicker way to good results. Datavideo VSM-100 also ensures that you don't capture video that is beyond recovery in post!
The VSM-100 combines a 2 x 4.3" HDMI/SDI Monitor with either 1 x VS-150 (2 x VS-150 for VSM-200).With HD/SD SDI inputs, it can test feeds in a large number of formats, from 576i and 720 50p to 1080i and 1080 25p.With HDMI outputs, it can be used with cost-effective HD monitors while its SDI ports can be set up as a loop-through as part of the production technology chain.
Ensure multlple cameras are outputting the same colours and with the same white balance with the Datavideo VSM-200. The unit also enables users to stay within a broadcaster's accepted values. The innovative design with dual analyzers and monitors makes for very fast test and measurement.
