Additional Functions
Selective Noise Reduction is a new addition on the XH A1S. This feature enables you to apply Noise Reduction (NR) to targeted color areas. For instance, when you need to enhance the definition of subjects against blue and green areas while using chroma key, they can be specifically targeted. Or, at times when the background cannot be sufficiently lit, the signal-to-noise ratio of specific areas of the background can be improved to increase contrast.
