UltraScope automatically detects between SD, HD and 3Gb/s HD-SDI video standards and includes both traditional copper BNC SDI inputs as well as optical fiber SDI inputs. SDI input is available as a reclocked SDI loop through on both optical and copper SDI outputs. Blackmagic UltraScope is technically accurate which is perfect for master monitoring and quality control tasks.

Broadcast Accurate Waveform monitoring for your studio!
Blackmagic UltraScope is the first broadcast accurate PC based scopes in a user friendly design! UltraScope includes everything you need for an accurate professional solution you can trust. UltraScope is perfect for master monitoring, edit suites, color correction, equipment rooms and engineering. There are 2 great models of UltraScope for both PCI Express computers or USB 3.0 computers and laptops!

Zoom for Greater Accuracy!
Blackmagic UltraScope now also features a powerful zoom function, with super high-resolution pan and zoom of graticules for the Parade, Waveform, Vectorscope and Picture displays. The zoom feature is perfect for editors and colorists requiring pixel accurate measurements such as matching blacks from different video sources.

Incredible Speed USB 3.0
SuperSpeed™ USB 3.0 is the new USB connection standard that's 10 times faster than regular USB. Pocket UltraScope takes advantage of this blistering speed to convert 3 Gb/s SDI to the computer's USB 3.0 connection.

PCI Express for Windows and Mac
PCI Express is very easy for computer manufacturers to provide high speed slots at low cost. This means PCI Express is showing up everywhere! It's even becoming the future docking standard on notebook computers.

Support for Different Monitor Sizes
With support for 1920x1200, 1920x1080 and 1280x800 resolution monitors, Blackmagic UltraScope can now be used with screen sizes smaller than 24", which is perfect for outside broadcast vans or in-studio rack mounting.

Impress your Clients!
High end post production and television engineers have known for decades the benefit of using waveform monitoring not just for engineering, but operationally in color correction and editing workflow. From color correction to matching black levels when keying and overlaying video, only waveform monitoring lets you keep track of what's going on, and helps you eliminate illegal colors, and other problems that could cause your work to be rejected by broadcasters.
