Crystal Vision Releases M-COCO-2 Color Corrector

The M-COCO-2 is Crystal Vision’s first dual channel color corrector, helping broadcasters save money by being 24% cheaper per channel than the company’s alternative product, it claims.

The appliance’s ability to work with IP, with SDI or with both IP and SDI at the same time makes it the industry's first color corrector to offer IP connectivity (supporting both SMPTE ST 2022 and ST 2110 video) it is further claimed.

Other features include unique new adjustments including two Y stretches ideal for correcting the contrast on in-shot monitors, as well as support for an increased number of video standards (31 in total) and a built-in test pattern generator for an easier workflow. Like all of Crystal Vision's IP/SDI video processing products, the M-COCO-2 is a software app that runs on the MARBLE-V1 media processor hardware, a card housed in the Vision frame which features a powerful CPU/GPU processor and both SDI and 10GbE IP network interface connections.

The firm explains, “Ideal for dealing with camera or lighting problems or to standardize pictures shot at different times, popular applications for the M-COCO-2 include adjusting the colors on in-shot monitors, being placed before an encoder to set the range of colors to be transmitted and the correction of computer-generated or post production outputs.”
