OmniTek’s XR image analysis system is specifically designed for colorists and editors working in an HD environment. Features include an "extreme resolution" waveform and vector displays for image analysis; realtime color histogram displays in a variety of different gamuts; and support for all 2K and dual-link input formats, with user-programmable LUTs to correct for nonlinear inputs. XR also offers support for "XYZ" color space inputs for users working in digital cinema. 

“We generally require monitoring for RGB parade, picture viewing, a vectorscope and PAL waveform,” explains Paul Sisley, technical operations manager at Molinare. “The OmniTek scope gives us a multitude of options to cater for this. The event/error logging system is very configurable and can enable the operator to concentrate on editorial QC decisions and then review the error log after viewing the pictures.”

Users can be confident that any technical faults with the video stream have been logged and can be fixed before delivery. Sisley also says the audio QC functions are particularly relevant with today’s multi-channel delivery specs, including Dolby E.
