The New CineZone chart by DSC is designed for testing resolution and acutance in digital and film systems. CineZone comprises a combination of useful test elements particularly valuable in digital cinema production.
The eight elements in the central zone plate make it easy to evaluate and compare the resolving power of different lenses.
DSC worked with Steve Lucas and leading Hollywood DPs and technicians in designing a pattern that would evaluate the performance of even the highest resolution cine models. Calibrated in LPPH, the 100 to 800 LPPH resolution patterns are designed to provide consistency in various formats being evaluated.
The other side of the chart features DSC's spectrophotometrically neutral CamWhite, for accurate white balancing, has framing lines at 1.78 (16:9), 1.85 and 2.38. CineZone also features an area designed to be used as a slate with dry erase marker. At 11 x 9.25", CineZone is designed to fit in a camera assistant's frontbox.
Note: This picture is rendered at 72dpi, very low resolution, so the lines do not appear to be sharp.
