Software developer Portrait Displays has announced an expanded partnership with Samsung Electronics to begin the measurement of colour volume in TV displays through its proprietary CalMAN software.
The enhanced auto calibration tool is expected to become available simultaneously with Samsung’s 2017 QLED TV line-up.
Portrait Displays‘ CalMAN software is the video calibration solution used by nearly every professional video calibrator, and by most end users in broadcast, production and post-production. It is also a market solution for home video enthusiasts.
“We are excited to partner with Portrait Displays, the world leader in colour accuracy,” said John Ryu, vice-president of visual display at Samsung. “With the increased colour volume in our QLED TV line-up, we are providing a stronger, more vibrant picture quality experience that can be measured in more detail.”
Added Martin Fishman, Portrait Display’s co-CEO: “Portrait Displays is honoured to have been chosen by Samsung as its colour measurement and calibration partner. Our technical team is working closely with the experts at Samsung to easily calibrate the wide colour spectrum of the Samsung QLED display.”
This is the latest 2017 TV announcement for Samsung; it also recently announced that it expanded its partnership with Verimatrix to ensure the 2017 line of the CE giant’s smart TVs complies with the Ultra HD (UHD) and 4K content guidelines set by MovieLabs.
