3Play4800/440 How do I color correct mismatched cameras?

Your 3Play system permits the use of sources that do not match the current session format. You might connect an SD camera during an HD session, for example. The official broadcast standard for SD video is Rec. 601, but HD video conforms to Rec. 709.  NewTek 3Play output color space is governed by the session format. 

When the natural color space for a connected source does not match the current output specification (in this example, Rec. 709), 3Play automatically attempts to compensate. But for best results, its advised to refer to downstream scopes for critical accuracy.

1. As required, connect external Waveform and Vectorscope monitors to 3Play outputs.
2. Your downstream scopes should be configured to conform to the broadcast color specification for your current session.
3. Calibrate you sources one by one using the Proc Amp tools for individual inputs.
