Designed for live television content creation, the Eyeheight CC-2M color corrector helps ensure consistent color matching between multiple camera sources or significant changes to camera angle. The CC-2M allows independent real-time adjustment of red, green and blue component levels, master gain, lift, gamma and hue. Additional features include a preview output with a split screen showing the processed and unprocessed picture, up to six plug-in modular color correction cards, and eight panels that can be networked.

The DK-2 is compatible with all commonly used 625/525-line standard definition, 720p intermediate-definition and 1080i high definition formats. It incorporates background, fill and key inputs, wipe, matte and garbage-matte generation, independent main and preview keyers plus EDH reinsertion for the main output. It is also fully transparent to SDI-embedded audio and other ancillary data. Other features include 10-bit linear keying, manual or automatic transitions, a user-selectable choice of additive, multiplicative and self-key modes, and AES digital audio voiceover.

The 2015 Wimbledon Tennis Championship will take place at the All England Club in London from June 29 to July 12.
