Hamlet HDW7 – Portable T&M monitor Ikan MR7 – Field Monitor with Waveform The HDW7 has a hi-resolution 1280 x 800 HD IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel that offers extremely vivid, clear pictures and a stable response time, displaying consistent and accurate colour from all viewing angles. It has waveform, vectorscope and RGB parade. The MR7 is a rugged 7-inch 1024 X 600 field monitor that includes a built in H.264 recorder with 4GB of internal memory. Alongside 3G-SDI, HDMI and Composite inputs it has Waveform, Vectorscope, RGB Parade, VU Meter and it supports 2k. Tektronix WFM5200 – Portable Waveform Monitor Weighing less than 3kg the WFM5200 is a compact but top-end product. Alongside Calibration and Error, Content Correction and auto-detection of HD or SDI Signals, it has a 4-Tile Display mode that allows the user to overlay the waveform and vector, or waveform and lighting displays, with image thumbnails. SmallHD DP7 – On Camera Monitor with Waveform & Vectorscope A 7.7-inch 1280x800 OLED Display, the DP7 features a waveform monitor that can be repositioned around the screen and a large vectorscope that provides a detailed view of the color balance in a shot. The gain may be increased to magnify the vectorscope. This helps to keep colours within safe broadcast limits. The DP7 also has Zebra and False Colour tools as well as Focus Assist/Peaking. The camera route You don’t actually need a separate monitor in some cases. The hugely popular Canon XF305 camcorder, for example, has a waveform monitor and vectorscope built right into the camera. The waveform monitor shows a detailed view of overall image brightness and RGB components while the onboard vectorscope provides real-time image hue and saturation analysis. Other cameras with these T&M functions include the Panasonic AG-AF100 and AG-HMC150PJ. Marshall Electronics V-R171X- DLW - Dual Link Waveform Monitor The 17-inch V-R171X-DLW is not only 3G capable it also features Dual Link, HD, HDMI and SDI inputs and both Waveform and Vectorscope data. In Quad-View mode four quadrants are available to show Audio Bars, a Waveform Monitor, Vectorscope and live video all at the same time. The software route A laptop, a capture card and an appropriate piece of software are another alternative. In this scenario, something like Scopebox is great as you can add, arrange and resize as many monitoring tools as you want in full screen mode including Waveform, RGB Parade, RGB histogram, Preview Windows, Audio Meters and Vectorscope. Similarly, you can use Adobe Premiere Pro or Apple Final Cut Pro’s which both have built-in waveform monitors and vectorscopes. The former has YC Waveform, YCbCr Parade, and RGB Parade while Final Cut Pro also includes a histogram view more commonly found in photo editing software. Or there’s which provides technically accurate waveform monitoring – and comes bundled with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Using a monitor with Thunderbolt connector you can display six live scope views including Parade, Waveform, Vectorscope and Histogram.
