Simple to use and even easier to transport, the new Hawk QCC provides quick and precise camera matching for on location single- or multi-camera shoots
Toronto, Canada --
DSC Labs, a developer of innovative products for image quality improvement, has announced the newest addition to its product catalog: the Hawk Quick Check Chart (QCC). Designed by Senior Video and Broadcast Engineer Gary Hawkins, the Hawk QCC provides a simple way to match cameras on location. Ideal for single- or multi-camera shoots, the Hawk QCC records critical information from an original scene set-up using a primary chart, then acts as its replacement by providing enough data for a quick camera evaluation and scene matching. â€œTime is of the essence in production. It's not always necessary to use a ChromaDuMonde for every scene change,â€? comments DSC Labs President David Corley. â€œThe Hawk QCCâ€™s innovative design and convenient size make on-location scene matching quick and easy.â€?
Hawk QCC Feature Highlights:
â€¢ Sized at 11 x 9.5â€?â€”for an easy fit into any camera bag or backpack â€¢ White patchesâ€”for white balancing and knee setting â€¢ Gamma at 18% grayâ€”for accurate iris or lighting adjustment â€¢ Black patchesâ€”for scene black and flare checking â€¢ Flesh tonesâ€”for checking consistency of flesh tones â€¢ Mid-gray strip top and bottomâ€”to monitor evenness of lighting
In addition, on the reverse side of the chart are more useful test elements:
â€¢ 5.5 x 3â€? neutral white panelâ€”for white balancing â€¢ 5.5 x 3â€? â€œwarmingâ€? panel â€¢ FrameAlign chart that displays different framing options â€¢ Write-on areaâ€”to note slate information
