Blackmagic Design launched today the Blackmagic UltraScope, a PC-based waveform monitor. It is a combination PCI Express card and software package designed to work in a low-cost PC with a 24in monitor for display. The monitor allows simultaneous display of six waveform views, including RGB/YUV parade display, composite waveform, vector, histogram, eight-channel audio meters, stereo audio scope and picture view.
The six scopes all update at the same time. Blackmagic UltraScope auto detects between SD, HD and 3Gb/s HD-SDI video standards. It also automatically selects between regular SDI and optical fiber SDI inputs.
