DSC Labs Adds a Touch Of Gray


DSC Labs, a Toronto-based developer of camera test charts and other products for image quality improvement, announced an update to its highly popular ChromaDuMonde HD-standard camera test chart. Designed specifically for DPs, producers, digital/special effects technicians, and camera operators with a background in film, the new ChromaDuMonde 18G will include an 18% spectrophotometrically neutral gray background to optimize the production value of images and high-performance cameras.

“HD television brought with it the potential for superb image quality, but attempting the switch into digital from film can be daunting,” said DSC Labs president David Corley. “With the new ChromaDuMonde 18G, the optional 18% gray background will ease the transition, while still offering all of the same award-winning, patented features of the traditional ChromaDuMonde chart series.”

Created to reflect the latest ITU-R BT.709/SMPTE 274M international colorimetry standards, the ChromaDuMonde provides precise information about how camera hue adjustments affect the full gamut of color reproduction. The ChromaDuMonde generates precise hexagonal-shaped displays for HD, SD, and NTSC images — and can be especially useful when accurately reproducing skin tones, or matching custom and difficult colors. The ChromaDuMonde will still be available with the traditional DSC Step 6 (grayscale) background. The new 18% background (18G) available as an optional feature.
