RHOdium Full Spectrum ND Filters
chneider-Kreuznach has introduced RHOdium
Full Spectrum Neutral Density (FSND) filters -
high-end neutral density filters made to exceed the
critical color standards of the newest 4K, 6K, and 8K
Available in 6x6 and 4x5.65 sizes, they come in a
full range of densities: 0.3, 0.6, 0.9, 1.2, 1.5, 1.8, 2.1,
2.4, 2.7 and 3.0.
The filters are engineered with an extremely thin
neutral density interlayer sandwiched between
two sheets of crystal-clear SCHOTT
water-white glass. Manufactured
to rigorous flatness/parallelism
tolerances to produce images free
from distortion or abnormalities, by
encapsulating the interlayer between
the glass sheets, the RHOdiums are
better protected from abrasions.
In the lab, RHOdiums are the first filters to
undergo 'tristimulus' scanning, a more precise color
measurement than methods previously used to
Additionally, in real world testing on popular highend cameras, the RHOdiums have proven to be free
of infrared light leakage that has plagued many
previous ND filters.
Schneider's unique Edge Seal protects against
delamination and edge chipping, while also reducing
edge reflection and edge glare.
According to DIT Dan Zimbaldi: "The Schneider
RHOdium NDs preserve that natural color
while still capturing the full spectrum
evenly. This is of particular
importance in post-production
color grading because it allows the
colorist to grade all the shots the
same, filtered or unfiltered."
measure filter quality. This method verifies neutrality
by utilizing a colorimetric algorithm that compares
samples to perfectly neutral light. The result is

Video Monitoring on iOS Goes Pro
eredek has announced a new suite of iOS
Tereadek's Serv promises to bring high-definition,
real-time video monitoring to iPhones and iPads
over Wi-Fi. At just four frames of delay, every critical member of your crew can view what is being shot
without crowding around video village or requiring a
heavy director's monitor kit.
To get the most out of Serv, Teradek has developed
VUer, an iOS application that gives you unprecedented insight into your live video feeds. With a built-in
histogram, false color, focus peaking, waveform
monitor and vectorscope, digging into the details of
your video feeds has never been easier. Also included
with the app is a frame grab and compare tool,

For multi-camera productions, the VUer App can
support up to four live video feeds from any combination of Serv and Cube devices.
Each feed maintains the same four-frame latency
and allows independent use of
VUer's toolset, giving you fine
control over the information displayed on each feed.
