AVPro and ISF Tackle HDR Distribution and Calibration with ISF Level III The ISF Foundation and AVPro Global Introduce ISF Level III to Address the Pain Points and Benefits of HDR Distribution and Calibration By RS Staff Published: January 18, 2018 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 As primary sponsors for 2018, AVPro Global recently launched its Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) Level III certification course, which will cover the fundamentals of image calibration and feature a new curriculum and a focus on the integration and importance of 4K and High Dynamic Range (HDR). With the 2013 release of the HDMI 2.0(x) specification, the onset of 4K products and content, and most recently the addition of HDR functionality, calibration has become secondary to simply getting the signal distributed. It is paramount to the mission of the ISF Foundation to deliver the best picture possible and match the director’s intent to the end user and that the complete signal gets to the display, from Source to Sink via all repeaters in the HDMI network. It is for these reasons that the ISF Level III seminar was created. Making its debut at Sony headquarters in San Diego, CA, both installers and calibrators stated their satisfaction with the seminar. “The recently launched ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) Level III certification course is strikingly up to date and even ahead of the market regarding video reproduction and distribution of high value 4K content with HDR and WCG,” Jeff Murray of AVPro Global stated. “Students terminated fiber, troubleshot EDID issues, learned the state of Dolby Vision, HDR-10, HLG, ATSC 3.0, and calibration of flat panels and projectors, among other relevant topics. The inaugural event was hosted by Sony, who brought in their entire field service team and top Sony television engineer Toshi Ogura who spoke on Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) and broadcast implementation. This is a fantastic new course!” Offering both InfoComm and CEDIA credits, the ISF Level III seminar is the educational event of 2018. Classes are scheduled throughout 2018 across the globe.
