Interface Details And Key Tools

Analyser Gain

Analyser Gain permits you to decrease or increase the gain put out to your display

streamlining your capacity to monitor crucial elements with dark footage in particular.

Audio Metering

An audio level meter is encompassed for up to 16 channels of metered monitoring

and display of peak DB levels.

An audio phase meter can also be configured to display either:

  • 8-Ch (surround);
  • Or 2-Ch (stereo) audio.

Audio Level Warnings may be set to generate notes into your logs.


Timecode may be overlayed on screen to aid with swiftly detecting any areas of worry

at particular moments in a sequence or shot.


HDR Image Analyser can detect P3 Gamut disturbances

and brightness contraventions in HDR events

and logs them with time stamps

in a log file and on screen.

Log files can then be gathered for communicating with your team as required.

Pixel Picker

Precision is key and HDR Image Analyser makes it easy.

Slide your mouse across your footage

and utilise the Pixel Picker to give you a read out of the precise pixels:

  • Nit level;
  • Hex;
  • Or decimal code values.

False Colour – Gamut Warning

Out of Gamut False Colour mode delivers a clear visual depiction of areas of your image that may pose a problem.

The outcomes can be saved automatically inside your logged files for QC needs.

CIE XY Gamut View

In HDR mode the CIE XY Gamut View can be utilised to verify the encoded colours

and whether they are within the valid limit of colour array.

This is pertinent when working in the Rec.2020 colour space

where the actual pixels are meant to be limited to the P3 colour gamut.


HDR Image Analyser permits you to set a white point appropriate for the project at hand.

Select amongst:

  • D65;
  • DCI;
  • or just turn off.

Vectorscope Targeting

The vectorscope also gives you a zoom feature and a skin tone line,

whose value can be manually set as required,

particularly helpful for guaranteeing reliable skin tone results

for sequence work and camera matching.


Vectorscope shows the colour saturation of each pixel in the video frame,

with the middle of the circle signifying a lower saturation level

and the edge of the circle suggesting a higher saturation level.

Waveform Lumi Colour

HDR Image Analyser gives you an array of views for waveform depictions with Waveform Lumi Colour.

Waveform Lumi Colour gives you a magnificent blend of both luminance

and colours in the project’s colour space.

Colour Space

Numerous distinct colour spaces can be applied for assessment comprising 2020, XYZ, P3 and 709

as well as camera native colour spaces.

HDR Image Analyser also gives you an Auto HDR mode shift

for automated HDR colur space prompting when viable.

Scene Capture

Scenes can be captured for swift recall

and saving to be shared with others

for a graphic depiction of any matters that should to be tackled.

Choose Setups

Setups can be saved and recalled swiftly

when shifting amongst projects and tool configurations.

Video Sources

Address your video source structure with swift access from the Video menu.

Simple access for:

  • Pixel mapping;
  • Transport;
  • Colour space;
  • And adjusting;
  • Or utilise Auto Detect for automated configuration utilising the source signal’s VPID.

Camera Log Inputs

HDR Image Analyser provides direct input for a range of Camera LOG inputs,

allowing direct connections from the world’s leading camera manufacturers

for immediate analysis of production feeds.
