SpectraCal Updates Auto-Calibration for Samsung QLED TVs

Video-calibration software leader SpectraCal has extended its partnership with Samsung and expanded the CalMAN color-calibration control options in Samsung’s 2018 QLED TVs.

In 2017, Samsung’s QLED Series TVs became the first TVs to support CalMAN auto-calibration, dramatically reducing the time it takes to optimize color using SpectraCal’s CalMAN with AutoCal software and allowing professional calibrators and video enthusiasts to measure color volume, a picture-quality standard that indicates color accuracy, regardless of brightness level.

The updated Color Management System in Samsung’s 2018 QLED TVs supports expanded control options. The system now offers adjustment points at 50 percent and 75 percent color saturation, whereas 2017 QLED models provide color controls only at 100 percent color saturation.

"Our technical team has worked with the experts at Samsung throughout 2017 to support calibrating the wide color spectrum of the Samsung QLED display, and we are looking forward to extending that work in 2018 to provide new levels of control for even more refined accuracy," said Portrait Displays CEO Martin Fishman.

"The added controls allow CalMAN to improve accuracy throughout the color volume, not just at its edges," he noted.

SpectraCal’s updated auto-calibration tool is expected to be available when Samsung's 2018 QLED TVs ship this month.

Portrait Displays, a leader in visual enhancement software for the computer display industry, acquired SpectaCal in 2016.
