Title: Professional Monitor Calibration for Still & Video

As more and more still photographers move into videography with dSLR cameras the need for color management solutions specific to those output environments has become obvious. X-Rite's i1Profiler software now includes video presets for popular video formats including NTSC, PAL-SECAM and Rec. 709. The introduction last year of the new i1Display Pro colorimeter combined with these presets in i1Profiler makes the X-Rite i1Display Pro the logical solution for calibrating and profiling monitors for video editing and output.
When i1Display Pro is combined with X-Rite ColorCheckers the combination provides a capture to output solution for video editing that allows exceptional control over white balance in any scene.
This webinar will review how to access and utilize the video presets in i1Profiler software and will briefly look at use of ColorCheckers in the video footage as a visual reference.
For photographers shooting, editing and preparing video for output, this webinar will give them the insight into X-Rite color management solutions that can streamline their color control in video.
