4kScope - a HDR/4K/2K/HD/SD Video Measurement Tool

4kscope logo buttonDrastic 4kScope is the world's most powerful 4K through SD software signal monitoring tool and HDR image analyzer.  It includes waveform (luma, YCbCr, RGB), vectorscope, histogram, chromaticity, and data/picture monitor for video.  Audio histogram, phase, RMS, peak and loudness monitoring for up to 16 channels.  Raw hex views of the video and OP-47/CEA-708/CEA-608 closed caption decoding, with support for CCIR-601, Rec.709 and BT.2020 color spaces and HDR10/ST2084/PQ and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) support.  Designed to take advantage of the BlueFish444, AJA, Matrox or BlackMagic's Quad HD and 2SI and 4K 60p capture modes in both Rec.709 or BT.2020, 4kScope provides the most cost effective SD/HD/4K signal monitoring solution available.  For SMPTE 2110/2022 monitoring, please see our Network Video Analyzer.

Measure Everything

4kScope software provides a real time, professional quality signal analysis tool for on set, production, post production, and research and development environments. 4kScope is designed to monitor from 4096x2160 down to NTSC/PAL and everything in between.  It supports SDR and HDR image analysis with support for 601, 709, 2020, WCG, HDR10 and WCG color spaces.  Multiple audio and video scopes can be selected in a variety of layouts depending on your monitoring needs.


90 Seconds With 4kScope

View your color bars, test patterns, live camera or telecine signal for device or facility installation, setup, commissioning, certification and other operational reference.  Confirm that the color gamut and analog transmission limits are not violated and that the color phase is accurate.

Version 5.0 of 4kScope provided zoom, safe zones, line/dot, line/area select and support for everything from SD to 4K 60p for AJA, Bluefish444 and Blackmagic video boards.

Version 6.0 adds multiple, simultaneous scopes as well as audio phase/waveform displays, chromaticity and running status pages.

Version 6.1 also supports 12 bit RGB and YCbCr/YUV 4:4:4 workflows so you can monitor and analyze HDR images from 12 bit capable software like Autodesk Flame, DaVinci Resolve, and Colorfront.  Event logging, raw capture and remote, an HTML web based UI has also been added for remote monitoring and operation.

The Interface

There are fourteen main components to 4kScope: 

  • Picture including view modes:
    • Red only, green only, blue only, luma only
    • Zebra luma, zebra chroma, clipping
    • Edge difference, focus assist, flip/flop
    • False color
  • Vectorscope (with WCG support)
  • Waveform Luma (with HDR10 support)
  • Waveform RGB (with HDR10 support)
  • Waveform YCbCr (with HDR10 support)
  • Histogram RGB
  • Histogram Luma
  • Chromaticity
  • Status
  • Audio vectorscope
  • Audio waveform
  • Audio histogram
  • Audio phase
  • Event logging list (signal loss, change, gamut, etc)
  • and a separate data view.

The thirteen components can be arranged in five different layouts: single, side by side, one large/three small, four quadrants and six up (three across, two down). To the right of the scopes either 8 or 16 audio meters are displayed for loudness or peak/rms.  Below the meters there is a status window that displays time code and user bits for the RP-188 V and RP-188 L SDI inputs and the analog SMPTE time code input if available.  If closed captions are detected, their presence and type is also displayed.
