MultiScopeCompact Product Overview - System and Plugins

As with our MultiScopeLite video product, MultiScopeCompact takes it to the next level in performance and features for our software based waveform monitors and software based vectorscopes, yielding a higher benefit to cost tradeoff. Our Compact version extends the functionality of the Lite product by improving the video scope family and by adding enhanced synchronized stereo audio metering support for real-time audio interleaved video streams.

Another big plus for MultiScopeCompact is that it can be configured for your specific operational environment. We have re-designed the video system using a plugin model making your special video configuration fast and easy. Just purchase the audio or video modules you need for your video application: plug 'em in, configure 'em and run 'em. A custom configuration formula that guarantees saving you money, by simply to not having to pay extra for capability you will never use in an all-in-one product solution.

The various A/V plugins we offer are easily installed and activated into a single host unit that already includes a high resolution video monitor, a built-in PPM indicator, scope control functionality, plugin install features and a diagnostics panel.

ANNOUNCEMENT.... MultiScopeCompact now supports 3D scope operation. Histogram functionality has been integrated into the classic waveform monitor, the vectorscope, the RGB parade scope and the YCrCb scope. In addition we have developed and included a full color range RGB cube and a color gamut cube calibrated to color space BT.601 and BT.709 specifications for out of gamut checks and verification in real-time.

(introductory video coming....HERE)

There is plugin real estate allocated in the host interface unit for up to two scopes, be it video or audio, all of which will run simultaneously and in real-time. Each scope can be placed into any one or more vacant spots within the host unit if you wish. Being an efficient multi-threaded application, the scopes can run at higher performance levels than our Lite version. That is, faster refresh and not sacrificing any higher presentation detail of the video signal being processed.

    I downloaded Multiscope Lite and I really liked it. When I was up to register, I noticed that there is a better one now, the MultiScope Compact. Since then (2 weeks) I’ve been trying to download the trial version from your website but it says: Not available yet

    I need to buy the software in a hurry, but I don’t want to spend money in the Lite version without testing the Compact. Besides taht, if I buy the Lite version now, would I be able to upgrade to the Compact version later?

      I just found your post. Go figure. There is an updated version of Compact to be posted shortly. We have also introduced an Ethernet camera version.

  • Daniel Barros

    Hi! I’d like to know how much does it cost multiscope compact’s full version.

    Thank you!

    • rumbler

      Cost of the MSCompact base unit is $69USD. Scope plug-ins vary in cost depending of what instruments you buy. Refer to RHMG web site for prices.

  • Robert Tubb

    When doing a reinstall of Multiscope Compact, do I need to get a new unlock code, or ust the one provided for the first install ?

    • rumbler


      You will only need a new unlock code if you plan to install the software on another computer. The install unlock code you currently have will work on the computer you have registered upon purchase.
