Waveform Monitor, Vectorscope, RGB Parade, Gamut Cube Software API Library
Develop your own comprehensive video measurement, analysis, calibration or monitoring system in Classic 2D or 3D
Our 2D and 3D video scope API library includes a real time multi-function software Waveform Monitor, a software Vectorscope, a software Histogram function, a software RGB/YCrCb parade function, a software Gamut Cube, a software RGB Cube, a software Histo-Vector scope, a software Histo-Waveform Monitor scope, a software Histo YCrCb scope and a software Histo RGB Parade scope, plus three audio meters – audio PPM, 2ch oscilloscope and phase meter.
RHMG 2D\3D Software Video Scope Function Library
Now you can easily develop and integrate a set of software based video processing tools into your next video engineering application ensuring your video levels, color balance, saturation, luminance distribution and gamut are where you want them to be.
These well recognized video test calibration and measurement instruments have been a real boon to our film to HD video imaging system development. Knowing the video properties of the converted film frames as they were captured live ensure that the final output YUV video files are well within specification for proper AVCHD, H.264, MP4 and MPEG-2 post production work. We are now making these video functions available to video system developers, broadcasting facilities and post production houses for color grading.
Our video API library offers functionality in both standard definition (SD using BT.601) and high definition (HD using BT.709) color spaces, it enables auto window scaling, it can do multiple instances of itself, engage auto sampling/decimating along with many other features. Our User Guide will have the details – see download link below.
The updated video SDK release now supports reading both file based uncompressed 24bit RGB bitmaps through byte arrays or buffering paradigms for real time operation using MEMSTREAM or byte arrays. Live real-time video capture and post processing is now possible depending on your application goals.
Now you can supply live image sequences in real-time from video cameras or re-call stored image sequences for your off-line post work.
Update – Nov 2018 – full set of 2D scopes, 3D scope and audio meters

This Video Software Development Kit (SDK) comes with a series of library functions in standard DLL form and a Developer Users Guide to explain the details of use. The guide will contain information on the audio and video instruments along with sample code descriptions.
Update v3.0 2D v1.0 3D [Nov 15, 2018]
-improved 2D scope operation and GUI
-addition of 3x audio meters
-addition of 5x 3D video scopes in classic cube and histogram form
-updated developers guide. See link below for current *.pdf update.
Update [March 3, 2012]
Version 2 of this SDK has been revamped. It is underway and is built on our work done on the MultiScopeLite product. Issues relating to 64bit O/S compliance are fixed. The video scope DLL’s are now functional libraries and can be easily plugged in into the *.Net interface for use in C# and VB 32 bit and 64 bit developments. Released April 2012.
Users and Developers Guide [May 30, 2013] – no longer available. See link for updated guide below.
Important Note: There is no technical support for this product other than pre-sales consultation. It is expected when using any SDK in general the developer is already familiar with software development environments, the technical subject and coding principles. The included users and developers guide has all the information needed to yield a successful integration. These software tools are no different. Follow the examples, the sample code, the install and distribution suggestions in the developers guide.
OpenGL v1.0 or later is all that is needed. The video instrument software is coded in C# on Studio 2013. The test application and test images are available as a download if requested.
