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 minimize color casting from any surrounding light. You’ll also be able to increase the capture resolution for more accurate post-production work.
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 to 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. Illumination Check Chips: black and white chips at two corners to better assist in determining even illumination across the target.
