Color Performance




SDI Timecode Display

Under SDI input, the monitor can display the embedded SMPTE timecode (VITC1, VITC2 or LTC), which is used extensively for synchronization, and for logging and identifying material in recorded media.

Real Time 2-step Zoom-in

The first step zoom-in function is specially designed for Canon DSLR, to cut the black bar around the HDMI output video, and enlarge the center effective recorded video to full screen.
The second step zoom-in is to enlarge the video 4 times, to check the image details and help to focus.
The zoom-in function is real time operation, available when preview, recording or play back.

Peaking Focus Assist

The peaking focus assist function is to sketch out the sharpest edges of the image, for cameramen to check if the subjects are in focus. You can switch the outline color between blue and red according to different tone of the subjects. The peaking focus assist is also available during video zoom-in.

Zebra Stripes

Like most professional cameras have, the zebra stripes are a warning to the over exposed areas of the image. When Luma value is over 90%, it is considered overexposed and displays the moving warning lines onto the over exposed areas.




Blue Only

Blue only is an assistant function to adjust camera color settings. Under the blue only mode, only the blue pixels are used to generate the image, because hue and saturation can be adjusted more quickly and accurately in this environment.
