SpectraCal has added automatic calibration for Panasonic’s 2011 HDTV models.
New workflows in SpectraCal’s video calibration solution CalMAN automatically calibrate the 2011 Panasonic displays via Viera Net IP connectivity.
“First, picture controls such as brightness, contrast, color, and tint are available directly from inside CalMAN, without needing a remote control,” said Chris Greenway, CalMAN Product Manager. “Second, CalMAN’s Interactive Charts allow you to say what results you want, leaving CalMAN and the display to work together to achieve those results. You can just push a single button and watch CalMAN perform a complete eleven-point white balance calibration.”
Calibration results are stored in the ISFccc (Imaging Science Foundation Certified Calibration Configuration) day and night memories.
SpectraCal chief technical officer Derek Smith said that Panasonic engineers worked very closely with SpectraCal to ensure optimal results. “Panasonic provided us with unprecedented access to controls for optimizing these displays,” Smith said. “You can set an option to specify how long you want CalMAN to work. The default option is a quick calibration, but you can crank it up if you want and bring it close to perfect.”
SpectraCal will be demonstrating the new Panasonic workflows at press briefings in Los Angeles on May 4 and New York on May 10.
