Datavideo VS-150 Overview

The Datavideo VS-150 Waveform Monitor & Vectorscope is a table top or rack-mounted instrument that displays HD/SD-SDI vectorscope, waveform, parade, and histogram information at the push of a button. You can always know whether your color and luminance levels are consistent and within specification. The scope data can be easily displayed on a large separate HDMI or HD/SD-SDI monitor or in the HD/SD-SDI video stream.

Video image quality is often determined by a combination of multiple factors such as camera alignment and calibration. The location of the production and the brands of connected video devices especially under Electronic Field Production (EFP) conditions can cause variable image quality in terms of brightness, color saturation, and white balance between different video sources. Traditionally, experienced camera operators would align equipment before a production in order to avoid too much time and resources being spent on adjusting images in post production.

The VS-150 provides quick, accurate, and standardized ways to calibrate and align signals from cameras and other video equipment. The VS-150 can be used to test and compare the accuracy of incoming video signals from cameras and/or connected equipment. The VS-150 can accept either SDI or HD-SDI input for signal analysis. The VS-150 can be set up to provide a clean video loop through on SDI/HD-SDI, whilst still allowing video analysis views on its HDMI output. Alternatively the scope view can also be displayed as a 1280 x 720 HD-SDI output.

Menu choice of Vectorscope, Histogram, Waveform, and Parade displays as well as clean Video Display output (SDI to HDMI conversion)
SDI / HD-SDI input
SDI / HD-SDI loop through can provide clean pictures or video analysis view
Automatically detects and locks to NTSC, PAL, or HD signals
Embedded SDI audio peak meter with selectable monitoring for 4 stereo pairs
Switchable 4:3 / 16:9 video thumbnail when input signal is SD-SDI
Headphone jack audio monitoring socket with menu-based volume control
Save and Recall trace menu options for quick and easy overlay comparison of video traces
Parade Display can be toggled between RGB and YCbCr
Vectorscope can be toggled between 75% and 100% graticules/bars
Waveform detail can be zoomed 20%, 40%, 60%, and 100% - various parts of the waveform can then viewed by changing the X Delay value
Capture sampling can be by Field1, Field 2, or Frame
12VDC operation makes the unit suitable for field or studio operation
