Production Standards

CamAlign charts are designed and built to the highest quality standards. Mounted on sturdy aluminum backing with a flexible protective edging, every CamAlign is individually checked, calibrated, and rechecked.

CamAligns are made in Canada, with integrity.

The ChromaDuMonde® and CamAlign® Story

CamAligns were originally designed for the United States space program.  To obtain the desired contrast ratio DSC developed the AcuFlect™ surface which provides at least two f-stops more dynamic range than standard test charts.

Film studios and broadcasters soon discovered the CamAlign benefits of superb, consistent image quality and the rest is history.

ChromaDuMonde and CamAligns are now used world wide:

  • In the Lab – camera evaluation and testing
  • In the Studio – to set up and match cameras
  • On the Set – as a production standard
  • In Post Production – to optimize image quality

CamAligns Can Help You:

  • Shoot richer-looking Pictures
  • Optimize tonal reproduction
  • Make blacker blacks
  • Provide neutral shadow details
  • Use rain or shine, even underwater
  • Protect the environment – aluminum and other materials in DSC charts are recycled when traded in.
