|(4.5) RED Camera Manual User Help Guide > RED One Theory of Operation > Red Video Monitoring Outputs|
The combinations of monitoring options can seem a little confusing at first. They are not as confusing when you sort them into a few basic categories. First are the on-camera monitors - the LCD Monitor and the EVF. Then there the HD-SDI signals for Video Assist on-set. Finally is the HDMI out.
The next basic rule of thumb is that only two of the monitors can have the GUI overlays on them at any time. This includes the EVF and LCD. So if you are using the LCD and EVF you will not be able to have overlays on your other monitors. If you are using one or none of the on-board monitors (like for crane work) then you can get more information to the remote monitors. We'll get to that a few paragraphs below.
Note that the neither of these monitors has a pixel for pixel accurate representation of the 4K image. This is not necessarily a detriment to the quality of the monitors. They are small screens, and offer a good reference for the operator.
Again, two basic types here: Program and Preview.
Surround view is the semi-transparent area around the actual image being recorded.
Frame Guides show the common aspect ratios. You can not adjust the shape of these guides, but there are guides in all the most common formats.
The 1:1 focus assist is very heplful for critical focus by eye. It matches the monitors to the resolution of the chip - you will not be able to see the whole image, but the reference will be much truer and appear much larger than the regular mode.
The waveform focus assists are a little trickier to use and we'll talk about them a little more later.
The Zebras, False Color, Luma and Histograms merit a page to themselves, so I won't focus on them here (no pun intended).
While the camera is operating, there is too much information to cram it all on the monitors or overlays, so you can get some of this information from the lcd on the back panel of the camera.
