A Blue-Only Mode, which is essential for monitor adjustment, is included. It allows the red and green signals to be cut, and displays only the blue signal as a monochrome image. This mode is used mainly for adjusting the color density (chroma) and color phase. By monitoring VTR noise, the signal level of each color can be accurately set.
Greater display convenience and system flexibility are gained with standard HDMI, DVI and HD-SDI terminals as well as transmitting RS-232C commands. Available slots can be fitted with a terminal board to match your theater system needs.
