Using HDRScope/4KScope with Adobe ScopeDirect Transmitter

4k 100Drastic's HDRScope and 4KScope products provide a ScopeDirect Transmitter for Adobe that allows users to monitor the main output directly from the Adobe software without SDI/HDMI or IP Video being used to connect them.  You can take advantage of this feature to analyze the signal through the wide range of signal analysis tools offered in 4KScope, HDRScope, and Network Video Analyzer. This article describes how to set up the ScopeDirect Transmitter output though our scopes.

ScopeDirect Adobe Transmitter's plug in output is supported in 4KScope, HDRScope, and Network Video Analyzer.  You can use our Waveform/Vectorscope, Histogram, Chromaticity, a selection of audio scopes, as well as a per-pixel data view and onboard error log to review and confirm levels as you work. Here are the steps to set up this feature.

Select Edit | Preferences | Playback from the menu bar.


Adobe Edit Preferences

In the Preferences window confirm the Drastic Scope Transmitter is selected.


Adobe Preferences
