The Calibrite ColorChecker Video XL provides an extra-large format for effortlessly capturing the target at greater distances and wider angles. It provides the same chromatic colors, skin tones and gray reference chips of the standard size ColorChecker Video, but twice as large. You’ll be able to eliminate the need to move your camera closer or adjust the focal length of your lens, shoot in the same lighting condition that is falling on your subject and minimise color casting from any surrounding light. You’ll also be able to increase the capture resolution for more accurate post-production work. Using a ColorChecker Video XL target at capture gets you to a worry-free, colour balanced, consistently neutral and an ideally exposed place faster than ever before. It’s an essential colour tool you won’t want to be without, saving you valuable time from pre-production through post. ColorChecker Video XL is an extra-large all-in-one durable and rigid video target. The target is available by itself or with two forms of added protection; your choice of a simple carry sleeve or a fully configurable carrying case. This rugged black portable case for the ColorChecker Classic XL provides the ultimate durability and protection for your chart when stored or out on a shoot. The case features a black polyester exterior and soft tricot interior for complete protection of your chart. ColorChecker Video charts make your workflow faster, more consistent and more color balanced. They allow everyone on your team – from producer to cinematographer to editor to colorist – to work with consistent color information. They save you time, from pre-production through production, and help you get to your creative look faster. Achieving the proper color balance and exposure for video can be challenging. F-stops in cameras don’t always match. Ambient lighting conditions change. Multiple cameras and lenses have different looks, even if they are the same brand and model. All of this adds up to quality control challenges and increased workload in post-production for your colorist or editor. Here’s what ColorChecker Video offers: Video Color Target Speed up your color grading workflow by achieving ideal exposure and color balance, whether shooting with one camera or multiples. The color chart includes a series of chromatic color chips, skin tone chips, gray chips and illumination check chips. The layout is designed for ideal performance when used with vectorscopes and waveforms, whether on camera or in software. Chromatic Colors: two rows of six chromatic color chips, both saturated and desaturated, specifically designed to align with the color axis on a vectorscope. These colors provide two levels of color information to more quickly achieve an ideal color balance. Skin Tones: ranging from light to dark with subtle undertones for better reproduce accurate flesh tones. This row of chips is positioned on the outer edge of the target for easy alignment. Large Gray Levels: Four larger steps for even gray balance, including white, 40IRE gray, deep gray, and high gloss black. These levels are ideal for determining proper exposure whether you use a waveform, zebras, or false colors. Use these levels to align the exposure and contrast of cameras you are matching and ensure that mid-tones are rendered accurately. These chips are positioned in the center of the test target for maximum exposure, even on a wide set. Linear Grayscale: Six color chips for achieving even gray balance. This row addresses highlight and shadow regions.
