Technicolor & Portrait Displays Set Out to Improve Color Accuracy for PC Displays
Current monitors making use of all panel technologies display good, clear, colourful pictures nowadays. However, those colours are not usually very well calibrated, making for inconsistent pictures between monitors and contributes to an overall reduction in picture quality. Now, Technicolor, well known in the media and entertainment sector and Portrait Displays, a visual enhancement software provider, today announce that they are providing a Color Certification Program to the makers of PC displays.
By following the program's specifications and passing a series of product tests, next generation displays will meet the same color criteria used by Technicolor when producing Hollywood movies and other media and entertainment.
"Today’s monitors are largely inconsistent from screen to screen, so we took our film and entertainment experience and combined it with Portrait Displays' software expertise to allow OEMs to build products that display rich media content the way that the creator intended," said Manuele Wahl, Senior Vice-President Technology Licensing, Technicolor. She added: "As worldwide color experts for almost 100 years and thanks to our daily work with movie makers across the world, we know exactly how much they take a real artistic care to image and color quality".
Portrait Displays will provide OEMs with display test and measurement services as well as software for color gamut tuning and display control. Full details are available at the link below.
Available for all products certified by Portrait Displays, including desktop monitors, laptops, Ultrabooks(TM), all-in-one PCs and laptop/tablet hybrids, the Technicolor Color Certification defines specifications for a monitor’s color gamut, gammas, color fidelity, white point and backlight brightness that equal the quality of today’s Blu-ray disks (ITU-R Recommendation BT.709).
