Rohde & Schwarz and Portrait Displays release new HDR calibration capabilities

Portrait Displays partners with Rohde & Schwarz

Portrait Displays has partnered with Rohde & Schwarz to provide test pattern support for HDR-10 High Dynamic Range (HDR) displays. High dynamic range (HDR) is a technological advancement that makes the home theater experience more intensive and more realistic, Rhode & Schwarz claims. This technology matches the picture’s luminance dynamic range to the perception of the human eye.

 

But HDR has also presented technical challenges at every step of the video chain, from capture through post production to the final viewing platform, according to the company: “The need for accurate, objective measures of video performance has never been greater”, has said Harald Ibl, Product Management and Application.

 

Rohde & Schwarz’s R&S®VTC/VTE/VTS test pattern generators

In April, Portrait Displays acquired SpectraCal, which develops CalMAN video calibration solution. The latest version of this software (version 5.7.2), offers full support for the Rohde & Schwarz R&S®VTC/VTE/VTS family of professional test pattern generators.

 

The R&S®VTC/VTE/VTS family offers data rates of up to 18 Gbit/s as well as functions introduced with the new HDMI standard, such as scrambling. It supports both HDCP 1.4 and HDCP 2.2 and covers realtime protocol testing and compliance testing in line with HDMI CTS 1.4/2.0.

 

“We were extremely impressed with the comprehensive capabilities of the R&S R&S®VTC/VTE/VTS family”, has said Portrait’s head color scientist and chief software architect Stacey Spears. “And CalMAN 2016 now takes full advantage of all the R&S®VTC/VTE/VTS’s capabilities”.

 

The generator function can be used to edit the Dynamic Range and Mastering InfoFrame specifically for HDR. It displays the enhanced extended display identification data (E-EDID) of the connected sink, including the HDR metadata block. It also permits the playback of customer-specific, uncompressed moving picture sequences. The analyzer unit provides suitable E-EDID and displays the Dynamic Range and Mastering InfoFrame. HDR-CTS tests are available for both the generator and the analyzer.

 

Portrait and Rohde & Schwarz are demonstrating the combined capabilities at the CES exhibition 2017 from January 5 to 8 in Las Vegas NV.
