4KScope - a 4K/2K/HD/SD Video Measurement Tool

4ks_logoDrastic 4KScope Version 6 is the world's most powerful 4K through SD software signal monitoring tool.  It includes waveform (luma, ycbcr, rgb), vectorscope, histogram, chromaticity, and data/picture monitor for video.  Audio histogram, phase, RMS, peak and loudsness monitoring for up to 16 channels.  Raw hex views of the vidie and OP-47/CEA-708/CEA-608 closed caption decoding, with suupport for CCIR-601, Rec.709 and BT.2020 colourspaces.  Designed to take advantage of the AJA's and BlueFish444's Quad HD and 2SI and 4K capture modes in both Rec.709 or BT.2020, 4kScope provides the most cost effective SD/HD/4K signal monitoring solution available.  Drastic 4KScope is available for Windows XP through 10 and Apple OS-X 10.8 or greater.  Blackmagic DeckLink/Intensity/UltraStudio cards are also supported.

4KScope

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.  Mulitple audio and video scopes can be selected in a variety of layouts depending on your monitoring needs.

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. Multiple inputs may be compared when viewing the output of a switcher, to coordinate a multiple device setup.

Version 5.0 of our Windows/Mac 4KScope includes 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 and adds audio phase/waveform displays, chromaticity and running status pages. 

 

The Interface

There are thirteen main components to 4kScope: 

  • Picture
  • Vectorscope
  • Waveform Luma
  • Waveform RGB
  • Waveform YCbCr
  • Histogram RGB
  • Histogram Luma
  • Chromaticity
  • Status
  • Audio vectorscope
  • Audio waveform
  • Audio histogram
  • Audio phase
  • and a separate data view.

The thirteen components can be laid out 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 analogue SMPTE timecode input if available.  If closed captions are detected, there presence and type is also displayed.
