Adjusting the Color and Picture Quality
Adjusting the Color and
Compensating for the Input Signals
A video image recorded under poor conditions may be
of poor color quality. If the signal is an NTSC or PAL
composite video signal or separate luminance (Y) and
chrominance (C) signals, you can correct the color and
level of the input signal to a certain extent.
You cannot adjust an image once it has been captured in
memory. If you want to make adjustments, capture that
image again, after making the adjustment.
When the memory image is displayed on the video
monitor, press the SOURCE/MEMORY button to
display the image from the video source.
To adjust the color intensity, hue, contrast and
a) In PAL mode, no HUE adjustment is provided on the INPUT
b) Adjust the color such that skin tones appear natural. For the
COLOR and HUE adjustment, you can correct the color
intensity and hue of an NTSC composite video signal or a
separated luminance (Y) and chrominance (C) signal.
c) On a setting of step –14, OFF appears and the image,
displayed on the video monitor, becomes black and white.
d) To perform adjustment of GAIN, set AGC (explained below)
When the printout or monitor image appears
blackish or whitish
Adjust the input signal to the optimum level for printing.
a) If you think that the AGC adjustment is not satisfactory, you
can perform fine adjustment using the GAIN item.
Adjusting the contrast of printouts
When you want to change the contrast of printouts
without changing the contrast of the video monitor,
compensate for the level of the input signal using the
IRE item in the SYSTEM SETUP menu.
The selected IRE is displayed in three digits.
Do not compensate for the input signal too much. Doing
so results in the whole of the printout becoming dark.
