With Grass Valley's new Creative Grading, the Focus and LDX camera series just unleashed their full potential. Creative Grading is a new camera shading control panel and tablet application that redefines the human interface and puts the user in full control of the creative power that lives inside Grass Valley cameras.
Using either or both a tablet and an intensively-tested new control panel, Creative Grading transforms camera shading from what was numeric on/off thinking to a holistic view of organic curves and color shaping. For ease in visualization, the larger UI of the tablet application provides a graphical representation of the impact of parameter changes. Artistic decision-making is much simpler and faster as shaders can see how a single change affects related sets of parameters in a system-wide view of how the on-screen image will be modified. This keeps shaders in full control, regardless of the situation and provides the camera operator with the most optimal working conditions for the task.
