Optional Control Software

Auto-calibration of the monitor colors by connecting a color probe and ColourSpace Kroma specific control software of LightIllusion.

Other Broadcast Monitors

The 7000 series from KROMA includes new functions to increase the signal monitoring capabilities.  Up to 1920×1200 resolution and DVI-I and DCI inputs, composite video inputs (or menu selectable e/s) and two SD/HD/3G-SDI inputs with active loop outputs. It also has camera calibration tools as well as other additional functions.

The new QS from AEQ-KROMA, with built-in quadsplit and 10 inputs, is now enhanced with waveform and vectorscope tools, high resolution IMD (In-Monitor Display) and VU-meters, onscreen clock and the option to turn 4 video inputs into outputs by menu. They can monitor both analogue and digital audio.

Preview Monitors

The 7500 series from KROMA, with monitor kits of 9”, 7”, 5” and 4”, feature high quality LED-backlight screens with functions like the option to display 3G signals, tools for camera calibration, and other improved functions; it is indeed the right choice for HD/3G OB Vans, sports productions and in general, whenever several signals must be monitored in a space constraint facility.

The LM6500 preview monitors series includes kits in 4”, 5”, and 7”. The monitors are based on 16:9 native LCD high resolution panels, featuring LED backlight to reduce power consumtion and providing better colour reproduction and IPS. Disponen de 4 entradas de video por pantalla. LM6500 series represents the right choice for HD OBVans and sports productions.

Available Calibration Tools


Primary colours red, green and blue, as well as Gamma adjustments. Different colour gamut selection, necessary to work in any professional video environment: HD-BT.709, 4K-DCI and BT.2020.

High Dynamic Range

Brightness up to 1000Cd/m2, the LM9000 monitors accurately reproduce every HDR video standard: HLG, ST2084 or PQ (Perceptual Quantizer) and S-Log curves. Also available on the LM8000 series.

Calibration Software

It allows each monitor to be individually adjusted to the user's preferences, as well as to set the colour spaces standardised by international organisations.

Waveform and Vectorscope

Video signal analysis for luminance and chrominance levels, in YCbCr or RGB format. They allow to detect pixel values above or below those recommended by ITU and SMPTE standards.

VU meters

The VU meters detect and evaluate the audio level of all channels present in the video signal. The level bars with their respective scale levels facilitate the needs of any user.

Aspect Ratio

It allows working at pixel level with each one of the existing formats in professional video, making possible the reproduction on screen of the input signal with its native resolution, avoiding its processing.


The different markers help the operator to determine which parts of the image are finally seen by the final viewers of the images.

Focus Assist

Focused edges are highlighted in red when they reach a certain sharpness value (configurable by menu).

Luma Check & False color

Luma check highlights pixels whose luminance values are out of range: red for underexposed and cyan for overexposed pixels. False colour scales the range of luminance values in 10 different levels and displays them in different colours.

Dual Split

Two signals are monitored with their corresponding waveforms, vectorscope, IMD and tally. An integrated splitter at no extra cost.

Pixel Mapping

It shows the real pixels of the signal, avoiding the decimation of the 9" and 18.5" screens with FullHD signals in the LM7000 series. It zooms in on the signal, and a small menu allows you to navigate through the different sections of the image.

Alarms Settings

In the QuadSplit series it is possible to configure independent alarms for each quadrant. 4 types: loss of synchro, freeze frame, loss of image and audio. The alarm is displayed as a frame bordering the image, with 4 colours.

Tme Code

On-screen representation of the time code embedded in the SDI signal in LTC and VITC formats.

Closed Caption

EIA-608 closed captioning sample in both VBI and ANC formats, as well as EIA-708.

Blue Only / Mono

Blue channel display, excluding red and green or monochrome display, allowing colour adjustment.
