DSC Labs offers Fairburn Chart for 3-D perspective
With the steady growth of 3-D production, DSC Labs, in Toronto, has seen increased demand for its Fairburn 3-D Chart, which was designed in collaboration with Sean Fairburn, an Emmy Award-winning director of photography.
The DSC 3-D Chart provides videographers and filmmakers with a calibration tool that enables them to properly balance and align cameras as well as check zoom, focus, rotation, keystoning, gray scale and colorimetry accuracy.
Designed for use with 3-D beam-splitter and side-by-side stereographic rigs, the chart includes 15 test elements with which to pinpoint critical differences in the alignment of 3-D cameras. For matching colors, the chart includes a hexagonal version of DSC’s ChromaDuMonde multihued pattern. Also included are 18 percent gray patches for users migrating from the film world.
The Fairburn 3-D Chart is available online at
