Datavideo VS-100 Vectorscope and Waveform Monitor Kit

Datavideo VS-100 Vectorscope and Waveform Monitor Kit
The VS-100 is a miniature signal monitoring system. With HD/SD SDI inputs, it can test feeds in a large number of formats, from 576i and 720 50p to 1080i and 1080 25p.

Its small size means that it is a go-anywhere engineering product, ideal for matching the outputs of cameras in live production settings.
The VS-100 can be used in 5 modes:
Waveform Monitor
Video in thumbnail mode

With HDMI outputs, it can be used with cost-effective HD monitors while its SDI ports can be set up as a loop-through as part of the production technology chain.


Rugged and compact single unit that requires only an HD-SDI or HDMI monitor
Menu choice of Vectorscope, Histogram, Waveform and Parade displays as well as clean Video Display output (SDI to HDMI conversion)
SDI / HD-SDI input
SDI / HD-SDI loop through - can provide clean pictures or technical monitoring
Automatically detects and locks to NTSC, PAL or HD signals
Embedded SDI audio peak meter with selectable monitoring for four stereo pairs
Switchable 4:3 / 16:9 video thumbnail when input signal is SD-SDI
Headphone jack audio monitoring socket with menu based volume control
Save and Recall trace menu options for quick and easy overlay comparison of video traces
Parade Display can be toggled between RGB and YCbCr
Vectorscope can be toggled between 75% and 100% graticules/bars
Waveform detail can be zoomed 20%, 40%, 60% and 100% - various parts of the waveform can then viewed by changing the X Delay value
Capture sampling can be by Field1, Field 2 or Frame
DC 12V operation makes the unit ideal for field or studio operation
