UltraScope offers waveform functionality on PCI Express card
Blackmagic Design’s new UltraScope waveform monitoring brings together the features needed for editing or color correcting combined with an elegant user interface.
Plugging the Ultrascope PCI Express card into any compatible Windows PC in combination with a 24in monitor gives access to six live HD or SD scope views simultaneously. With 3Gb/s SDI, and 3Gb/s optical fiber SDI connections, UltraScope is a highly engineered, broadcast-quality set of scopes that can auto-detect SD, HD and 3Gb/s SDI inputs.
Ultrascope brings together the six, which include a parade display for colorists, waveform display for alignment, component vectorscope view, histogram for location shoots, audio view for level monitoring and picture view with VITC time code.
