Blackmagic Design Inc has introduced a new software update for Blackmagic UltraScope, the world’s first 3Gb/s SDI and optical fibre waveform monitor. This update adds a new customisable “2-up” view, greater support for different monitor sizes and a super high resolution zoom of Parade, Waveform, Vectorscope and Picture displays.
The latest update allows the UltraScope to work in a new compact “2-up” view, so the end user can use any combination of the six displays in a side-by-side view, which is ideal for displays smaller than 24”.
Customers still have the option to view all six displays simultaneously with Parade, Waveform, Component Vectorscope, Histogram, Picture View and Audio Monitoring, in the traditional “Full Screen” view on a 1920x1200 resolution monitor.
With support for 1920x1200, 1920x1080 and 1280x800 resolution monitors, the UltraScope can now be used with a wide range of monitors, both large and small. Now you can use screen sizes smaller than 24”, which is perfect for outside broadcast vans or in-studio rack mounting.
The UltraScope also features a powerful zoom function, with super high-resolution pan and zoom of graticules for the Parade, Waveform, Vectorscope and Picture displays. The zoom feature is ideal for editors and colourists requiring pixel accurate measurements such as matching blacks from different video sources.
