IEC 61146-4:1998 pdf download – Video cameras (PAL/SECAM/NTSc)-Methods of measurement- Part 4: Automatic functions of video cameras and camera-recorders.
This part of IEC 61146 applies to the assessment of characteristics of automatic functions which are implemented ri colour video cameras and camera-recorders. The performance to be assessed in Ihis standard is limited to automatic functions relating to light input from the lens and to the electronic output from video cameras and the video camera portions of camera- recorders.
This standard defines test patterns, measurement conditions, methods of measurement and the presentation of measured results so as to make possible the comparison of the measurement results.
This standard intends to provide an objective method of measurement for each characteristic of the automatic functions but the results of objective measurements may not correlate well with the subjective assessment of automatic functions.
It does not specify limiting values for the various characteristics related to automatic funclions.

4 Conditions
4.1 Environmental conditions
Au measurements shall be carried out within the environmental conditions as specified by the manufacturer.
The environmental conditions during measurement, at least the temperature and the relative humidity, shall be reported together with the presentation of the measurement results.
4.2 Conditions of measurement
4.2.1 Illumination
a) The illumination of test charts should be performed by two or four spot lights depending on the characteristics to be measured
b) The correlated colour temperature of the spot light shall be 3 100 K ± 100 K.
C) Unless otherwise specitied, the illumination level of the test chart shall be 2 000 lxi 100 lx.
d) The non-uniformity of the illumination shall be less than 5 %.
0) The methods used for all the measurements shall be in line with the standard methods specified in ISO 8341.
4.2.2 Shooting conditions
a) An optical axis of the equipment under test shall coincide with a normal line of the test chart.
b) Unless otherwise specified, the distance between the test chart and the equipment under test should be approximately 2 m.
C) Unless otherwise specified, the zooming should be adjusted so that horizontal and vertical markers just fit the full frame of an under-scan monitor.
4.2.3 Settings of the equipment under test
Except when otherwise indicated, the following setting shall be used:
a) focus shall be adjusted for the best condition.
