How Do I Color Correct Mismatched Cameras

TriCaster 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. TriCaster’s output color space is governed by the session format.

When the natural color space for a connected source does not match TriCaster’s current output specification (in this example, Rec. 709), TriCaster automatically attempts to compensate – but as always, it’s good to refer to the scopes for critical accuracy. 

As required, TriCaster’s Waveform and Vectorscope displays can be used to monitor corrections made using the Proc Amp tools.  (Scope calibration automatically conforms to the broadcast color specification for the current session – HD or SD, and is appropriately labeled as a convenient reminder.)
