TG-5120 DSC ChromaMatch® Pattern Generator


DSC Labs makes a system of color charts specifically to aid in the setup of television monitors. They use their color charts as an overlay to compare the monitor image with the reference charts. Being a Canadian company that works closely with the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC) a CBC engineer suggested a TG-5000 product that could produce the DSC Labs color charts - the TG-5120 DSC was born.

We wanted to preserve the pattern constellation of a standard TG-5120 and just add the ChromaMatch® color chart. Because of the resource limitations using the TG-5120 hardware - we had to remove the audio functions. Therefore, the DSC version uses muted audio values.
