Data Ranges: Dpx frame to check for range shifts between video (SMPTE), full range (CGR) and log (Cineon)  

1920 x 1080 dpx (8.3Mb)

Download the frame load it into your software and check the display. If you are calibrated to full range only CGR black will appear black. If you are viewing SMPTE video, there will be no difference between CGR and SMPTE black, but log black will still be gray. If you have a cineon print density LUT in place all three black levels should match.
