YCbCr Parade

The YCbCr Parade displays individual waveform monitors for the Y, Cb and Cr components of the signal.

The YCbCr Parade is useful for signal chain diagnosis since most video devices process in the YUV colorspace.



The Mode dropdown allows you to choose the method ScopeBox uses to render your scope. Each mode offers you different information.

Weighted mode looks like a traditional scope and expresses the number of pixels at a given value by varying the brightness.

Mono mode displays every data point at full intensity, which can be useful in ensuring complete legality. With weighted views it is possible to miss a small pixel region that is out of range.

Instantaneous Envelopes

Instantaneous Envelopes help ensure that you don't miss any data within your monitor, even when it's just a single pixel. Checking the box will cause two bounding lines to be added to your waveform, one showing the maximum values for your waveform, and one showing the minimum values for each vertical line.

Peak Envelopes

Peak envelopes show the maximum and minimum values for each component over time. This allows you to look away from your scopes, and still know whether you exceeded a target threshold. The reset button will clear the peak values.
