X-Rite Wants to Keep Your Color in Check with New Colorcheckers
X-Rite has the tools you need to calibrate and color check.
Here at NAB, X-Rite gave us a tour of its newest color calibration tools for photo and video. The Colorchecker Video Targets not only include color scopes, skin tones, and exposure all-in-one but a white balance target on the back, as well. The Colorchecker Passport is available for both photo and video.
The Colorchecker Passport Video includes a classic chip target upgrade for video including color for vectors, skin tones for vectors, greyscale, and matte and glossy black that you can look at in waveform. The i1-Display Pro is a calibration device for your monitors. You can calibrate your monitor on the field to match your monitor at home. Basically, you can build a 3D LUT at home, install it into your monitor on the field, and the look of LUT on both monitors will match. The Colorchecker Target is priced at $119, the Passport at $149, and the i1- Filmmaker Kit, which includes the i1-Display Pro and Colorchecker Video Passport, is priced at $369.
