3rd Generation Focus Assist for Flanders Scientific’s DM Series Monitors

DM Series monitors now come equipped with FSI’s 3rd Generation Focus Assist. Key improvements found in this new focus assist feature include:

  • Smooth realtime performance with absolutely no lag that works in both normal and fast processing modes
  • Industry-leading adjustability of focus assist sensitivity and focus trace weight
  • Adjustable focus assist color: select from white, black, red, green, yellow, blue, magenta, and cyan
  • All adjustments are made from rotary knobs, no need to access menu for changes
  • Ability to show focus assist on downstream displays using DM Series processed monitor outputs

3rd Generation Focus assist is available as a part of free firmware update 1.1.04-2223 for DM Series monitors available here. This firmware update also features the following changes:

  • Detection and display of PsF signals as progressive has been fully automated
  • Adds Fast Mode support for 4:4:4 signals
  • Adds Fast Mode support for PsF signals displayed as progressive on screen
  • Adds New Custom Marker: Oxygen
  • Resolves DM240 Fast Mode bugs (flashing white dot in lower left of screen and image shifting 1 line lower).

BoxIO Utility Open Beta Update 0.19.4b

BoxIO Utility Public Beta build 0.19.4b is now available for download and features the following improvements:

  • Device slots can now be deleted
  • Device slot number 1, previously permanently labeled BoxIO #1, can now be renamed
  • Software now protects against multiple ScopeStream windows being opened for a single device, which may have led to unpredictable behavior in previous build
  • Various error checking to prevent unwanted disconnects when attempting to access unsupported behaviors
  • Connection status now shows “connecting” with ability to cancel action if needed as opposed to waiting for timeout
  • Learn more about the advanced ScopeStream capability now featured in the latest BoxIO Utility Beta Releases:

ScopeStream for DM Series Monitors Now Available

ScopeStreamIcon_125The ScopeStream beta for BoxIO was released 2 weeks ago and FSI is pleased to follow that today with the public beta of ScopeStream for DM series monitors.

DM170, DM240, and DM250 monitor owners can now stream real-time Waveform and Vectorscope from their monitor to any connected Mac or PC. A highlight of ScopeStream is that video analysis happens on the display itself so scopes run as a low-load operation only requiring the computer to draw out the scope trace data being sent back.

“Many monitors offer built-in Waveform and Vectorscope, but showing these typically requires overlaying your reference image or clunky solutions like scaling your image to a non-native size to make room for scopes. Standalone scopes can be a great alternative, but these can be costly and for production environments mean transporting yet another piece of equipment. ScopeStream aims to address these challenges by allowing real-time Waveform and Vectorscope to be monitored on any connected computer without the need for additional equipment or expense.”

-Bram Desmet, CEO/GM Flanders Scientific, Inc.

The beta monitor firmware and utility application updates can be downloaded from FlandersScientific.com.

ScopeStream for BoxIO Now Available

BoxIO’s new ScopeStream capability, first announced at NAB 2017, is now available as part of a public beta release of the updated BoxIO Utility application and BoxIO firmware.

The updated utility allows multiple BoxIO devices to be connected, each supporting its own real-time Waveform and/or VectorScope stream.

We characterize BoxIO as an Advanced Color Management device because it is more than just a LUT box and ScopeStream is another great illustration of that point. With a single device you can apply LUTs in real-time, take full resolution frame grabs, view waveform and vector scope, and a whole lot more. Best of all, you get all of these capabilities for a price that is comparable to devices that do little more than just apply a LUT.

-Bram Desmet, CEO/GM Flanders Scientific, Inc.

Flanders Scientific DM Series Monitors Now Feature HDR Preview Modes

All DM series Flanders Scientific monitors now feature 3 selectable HDR Preview modes. FSI CEO/GM Bram Desmet had this to say about these new capabilities: “Our aim with these new HDR monitoring modes was to allow users to leverage current technology for High Dynamic Range signal monitoring in production and quality control applications. While not intended for HDR mastering these modes do provide a simple and cost effective way to monitor PQ or HLG signals.”

Three monitoring modes are available:

  • Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG).
  • ST2084 clipping at approximately 300nits.
  • ST2084 with a highlight roll. This setting may be particularly useful in production environments as it will allow operators to visually distinguish all code values present in a PQ signal.

Current DM250, DM240, and DM170 monitor owners can download firmware with these new selections for free here.
