CONSOLE Software
Canon Console Image Control & Storage Software Version 1.1 is the next generation of product developed by Canon in response to the practical needs of broadcasters in ENG, documentary and reality/episodic TV production and filmmakers. Console software allows you to control multiple functions of the camera remotely from your laptop. Whether you're changing camera settings like f-stop and white balance, capturing your footage directly onto your hard-drive, or monitoring a live video signal using the built-in Vectorscope and Waveform Monitor, the CONSOLE software puts all of the necessary professional functions at your fingertips.

CONSOLE is very simple and conveniently laid out in two basic environments: "Rec Panel" and "Play Panel". All the other windows are contained in one of these two environments. When capturing footage, the "Rec Panel" contains all the options you'll need to control camera functions and tweak the "look" of the image. When you are playing back footage, you'll be in the "Play Panel". These basic environments can be displayed or hidden by the first two buttons on the toolbar, or through pull-down menus at the top.
