Why are they called ChromaDuMonde (Colors of the World)?
Because CDMs Conform to the International 709 Standard from the ITU in Geneva. The perfect choice for
local and international production!
Multi-Tasking, Multi-Standard Charts!
ChromaDuMonde charts generate precise
hexagonal-shaped vectorscope displays. After setting gamma using
a CDM's precision crossed grayscales, colorimetry
can be adjusted for accurate color reproduction or your own unique "Look".
Today's DPs, producers,
digital/special effects technicians and camera
operators increasingly view DSC charts as
necessities for optimizing their high performance
cameras, and the production value of their images.
ChromaDuMonde is the latest addition to DSC's family
of production-friendly CamAligns.
ChromaDuMonde to evaluate and adjust a video
camera’s color matrix and gamma with a waveform/vectorscope.
Charts are especially useful for accurately
reproducing skin tones, custom and difficult colors
- purple and turquoise, and other colors which occur
at prism crossovers.
In Production ...
Check and adjust cameras on the fly, and immediately
see the effect of any hue changes on surrounding
colors. When producing "green screen" and
other digital/special effects, ChromaDuMonde charts
provide precise information about how camera hue
adjustments are affecting the full gamut of color
reproduction. Image quality and consistency
can be enhanced by recording chart information to
tape or film, and using it in post as a baseline
production reference. For scene-to-scene
consistency, record a few chart frames with every
lighting change - to facilitate/expedite
color-correcting, matching footage, and
digital/special effects. Chart information
provides a foundation for users’ creativity and
accurate rear-lit test transparencies and
