Highlight Description:

DSC Laboratories has been concerned with image quality, since the 1960s when David and Susan Corley were producing TV commercials. They were not happy with processing inconsistencies from the film labs and poor quality telecine transfers at TV stations; David made test charts that significantly improved the situation.

DSC has continued developing this technology, which is now used internationally to optimize image quality from outer space to ocean depths and everywhere in between. Network TV, Sporting Events, Law Enforcement, Medicine and  Security - DSC test standards used before, during and after a shoot, produce optimum image quality through the entire production chain - it’s not magic, it’s science! DSC’s technology is typically five years ahead of industry requirements.

Distributed primarily through a dealer network, many DSC tools have become de facto international standards, ChromaDuMonde®, FiddleHeads®, CamBelles® and the iconic Xyla®; with up to 26 f-stops of dynamic range, Xyla is indispensable in HDR. If you have a problem locating the distributor in your area, please contact DSC directly.

DSC’s latest innovation, ChromaMatch®, provides simple, precise image control from Camera to Display. The distinctive radial design includes Wide Gamut 2020 and 709 colors – the latter may be used with traditional measuring equipment and digital reference files provide instant visual matching. ChromaMatch patterns are available in many formats, from 60” Rollup ChromaMatch Vista to 4.25” ChromaSelfies® and Print-A-Match®; all are simple to use, the latter helps align printers efficiently and saves money in ink and media. 

Added to the roster this year are ChromaDisk formats, which include colors, greys, skin tones and resolution gratings, functional from any distance, and ChromaMatch Vista 256, for use with Photoshop and other graphics software.  

While it's vitally important that cameras reproduce images accurately, it is equally important that images be displayed accurately.  Electronic monitor alignment systems work to a point, but are not WYSIWYG. To provide a solution, DSC Labs developed ScreenAlign®.

Simply set the self illuminated ScreenAlign to the desired color temperature and place it in front of a screen or projected image displaying the ChromaMatch pattern from digital file supplied. Match the images, then adjust colors, density, gamma etc. of the displayed digital image to match those of the ScreenAlign!  ScreenAlign can be used with any size display from 15 inch laptop to large movie screen.   

To ensure ongoing precision, this suite of products is distributed under license, maintenance program included. Also ask about TACT™ Totally Automated Camera Testing system, designed for police departments, hospitals etc. 

The above products and services standardize and provide imaging excellence and consistency through the entire production process, literally from Scene to Screen, which is why we call the system S2S! - order your S2S system today. 

Extended Description:

ScreenAlign was designed to help users of displays requiring critical color matching, either to coordinate with each other or with elements such as skin tones in the original scene.  The human eye is well-known for its ability to discern minute differences between adjacent colors and ScreenAlign takes advantage of this talent to match colors and grays, with or without traditional camera calibration equipment.

Xyla - Dynamic range is an important factor in selecting the best camera for the job. Ensure your camera is set up accurately with DSC Labs’ latest high dynamic range test system – the Xyla. 15 – 26 f-stops dynamic range, fully enclosed voltage regulated light source, shutter system allows users to isolate and evaluate individual steps

The ChromaMatch intuitive visual matching feature uses traditional ChromaDuMonde® colors and grayscales, producing familiar, easily interpreted waveform monitor and vectorscope displays for those who prefer traditional matching. The favourite at major sporting events, this pattern is popular in a five-foot roll-up version.
