SmartScope Duo 4K gives you the choice to select a scope display or
regular video on each of the 8 inch LCD displays. You can even monitor
video on one LCD while running a scope such as waveform, histogram or
audio on the other screen. This is a powerful combination because you
can see the video you're monitoring alongside a real time scope
measurement, all on the same SmartScope Duo 4K! You can always rely on
SmartScope Duo 4K to give you broadcast accurate monitoring, ensuring
your video production has perfect video and audio levels at all times!
Waveform display is perfect for adjusting video levels or matching
black background levels when keying! Waveform Display features a
luminance waveform of the black and white levels in your video signal.
It's perfect for setting the output levels on your broadcast decks and
generally monitoring the levels of your production while you edit.
Waveform display is a vital tool for color grading and a valuable
reference for unifying background levels when keying.
A vectorscope is the only way to measure colors in video accurately!
If you're color correcting video, vectorscope shows when color has been
removed or nulled out for accurate white balance. When you need to apply
a tint, vectorscope lets you see exactly how much tint you’re adding
and what color it is. Sometimes monitors cannot be trusted, but with
vectorscope you’ll always know the exact colors you’re working with! You
can also easily align hue on decks using a vectorscope!
The real time RGB parade waveform view is the ideal scope for
accurate color correction. You can see the color balance in ‘blacks’,
‘mids’ and ‘whites’, making it easy to balance colors for perfect
looking images. RGB Parade lets you check for illegal colors because any
video that drops below the black line, or above the 100% line, is an
illegal RGB color! Vectorscope view cannot show illegal video levels,
because vectorscope only plots colors and not the luminance component of
video. However the RGB parade plots your video as R, G and B and so is
the perfect way to keep track of illegal video levels! You can also
select YUV parade display which shows the YUV component video as its
transmitted down the SDI cable and is perfect for broadcast engineering
analysis of SDI signals.
Monitor your audio levels with 16 channels of audio metering for
viewing every channel in the SDI video connection! The audio scope also
includes a stereo phase meter that can be selected to different SDI
audio pairs. The stereo phase meter plots left and right audio as an XY
scope display so you know exactly what your audio is at all times. It’s
easy to see audio problems such as clipping, and out of phase audio can
be seen as a left or right leaning display. If you don’t get a vertical
oriented waveform then you know your audio channel balance is out! No
audio problem can hide from audio scope display!
Clipping levels on a live shoot results in loss of detail, which can
cause huge problems when you try to adjust ‘blacks’ or ‘whites’ in post
production. Histogram view lets you see where the pixels are in your
video, and how they are distributed from black to white. You can see if
your video is clipping and adjust the camera iris and ISO settings to
keep all black and white detail in the image. This means you have the
full contrast range of video for easy color correction during post
production. Histogram will transform your shoots because you can see
exactly what you're recording and the colorist who works on your job
will benefit from the availability of the full contrast range of the
Perfect SDI Monitoring
SmartView monitors are the perfect choice to add SDI monitoring
anywhere you need it. You can use them for broadcast, post production,
on set monitoring, flyaway kits, broadcast trucks and more! When you're

When you need to analyze image quality more accurately than simply
looking at the picture then use SmartScope Duo 4K’s built in waveform
monitoring! You can view two independent sources simultaneously and
conveniently switch between monitoring or scope views whenever you need!
Choose from waveform, vectorscope, RGB parade, YUV parade, histogram
and audio phase and level displays, and get broadcast accurate waveform
monitoring that shows everything you need to know technically about your
video and audio signals. SmartScope Duo 4K removes the need for
separate expensive scopes!
Ultra Thin Design
SmartView monitors feature an elegant front panel that is designed to
