Calibrite ColorChecker Video Mega (CCVPR-MEGA)
Video Color Control from Capture to Edit
- An oversized target (1020 x 1520mm) suitable for large stadiums or aerial work
- Features four grayscale calibration bars and saturated and unsaturated RGB primaries and extended skin tone patches for additional color precision
- Supported by many key third-party software applications
The ColorChecker Video Mega is designed for those longer and wider shots when you need a larger reference target. Both will speed up your color correction process and save you hours in post. Use it to nail exposure, match multiple cameras and maintain consistency during changing light, so that you can tell your story as perfectly as possible.
Measuring an impressive 1020 x 1520mm, the Mega is the largest target within the ColorChecker Video range and is an ideal tool for the following photographic scenarios and more:
Cine–wide shots: landscape, cityscape, custom sets
Event filmmaking: concerts, churches, sports, stage
Aerial filmmaking: drone photography
The ColorChecker Video Mega provides an extra-large format for effortlessly capturing the target at greater distances and wider angles. The Video Mega is designed for shoots when the space between your camera and subject is too great to capture a smaller target.
This target eliminates the need to move your camera closer or adjust the focal length of your lens, allow you to shoot in the same lighting condition that is falling on your subject and minimize color casting from any surrounding light.
The ColorChecker Video Target includes:
Chromatic Colors: Six saturated and six de-saturated color chips aligned with video production
Skin Tones: Six color chips from light to dark with different undertones
Gray Levels: Four larger steps for even gray balance, including white, 40IRE gray, deep gray and high gloss black reference patches
Linear Grayscale: Six steps for even gray balance, including highlight and shadow regions
Illumination Check Chips: Black and white color chips at two corners to better assist in determining even illumination
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 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
