NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 23, 2015) - B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the new ColorChecker Video and Video Passport from X-Rite. Aimed at video professional and hobbyists alike, the new targets offer a more intuitive way to obtain accurate color balance and control of your images by offering fewer colors than the classic 24-chip targets, thus making them easier to read when viewed on vectorscope or waveform monitors. They also offer an increased number of skin tone patches to help you properly recognize hue shifts, and larger grayscale patches for exposure control.

The X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Video presents a complete and portable solution for accurate color balance and control. Packed in a pocket-size rugged hard case, the Passport Video features four unique targets: color chip, grayscale, white balance, and even a Siemens star-style focus chart. When a larger format target is needed, X-Rite offers the ColorChecker Video. On the front target you’ll find large gray level patches in the middle, flanked by skin tone and grayscale chips on one side and chromatic colors on the other. Flip the card over and you’ll find a dedicated white-balance target.

Third-party support for the color target patterns within DaVinci Resolve is planned for early 2016, and the Color Finale plug-in for Final Cut Pro by the end of 2015, but you can use the waveform and vectorscope tools within any video editing or color-grading software to enjoy the post-production workflow benefits that the targets offer.
