X-Rite’s ColorChecker Video Targets are available in two forms to deliver consistent, predictable and repeatable results, frame-to-frame and camera-to-camera.
ColorChecker Passport Video delivers all-in-one pocket-sized convenience in a rugged hard case with four different targets:
A colour reference for evaluating specific chromatic colours aligned with video production, including skin tones, grey balance and highlights and shadows.
White balance for creating a consistent neutral white point, eliminating the need to correct each frame later.
A three-step grey scale target that includes white highlight, 40 IRE mid-tone grey and saturated black references.
A focus target that facilitates centre and edge focus.
ColorChecker Video’s larger format is great for camera checks and for wider shots, both in studio and on location. This two-sided target includes:
Two series of grey scale patches: seven smaller patches for even grey balance with extra steps close to the highlight and shadow regions, and four larger grey level rectangles, including a high gloss black, that are easily recognised by the camera,
A range of skin tone patches from light to dark along the outer edge for easy alignment.
A series of saturated and desaturated chromatic colours allowing for appropriate colour and saturation adjustments.
A full size white balance target on the reverse side.
Geoffrey Clements, Managing Director of XP Distribution, commented, “For many film makers, colour control is a critical part of their workflow. The experts on the X-Rite stand will be able to demonstrate how they can make this process easier, saving valuable time and money.”
