Eyeheight color correctors were chosen for the recent production of a fashion series for U.K. television. CC-2M systems were used throughout the programs which were broadcast live by dock10 at MediaCity, Manchester, for Channel 4 and online.
“Eyeheight color correctors enable our production team to ensure consistent color matching when switching between multiple camera sources or making significant changes to camera angle,” dock10 equipment allocator Dave Mason said. “They integrate into our system easily, have a very logical menu system and deliver high picture quality.”
Eyeheight’s CC-2M color corrector is an auto-sensing system designed to handle 525/625, 720 and 1080 line content. It allows independent real-time adjustment of red, green and blue component levels, master gain, lift, gamma and hue. A preview output provides a configurable split screen showing the processed and unprocessed image. Up to six CC-2M color correction cards can be housed in a one-rack unit FB-9E chassis and operated from an FP-9C control panel with self-legending illuminated pushbuttons.
