Portrait Displays has released CalMan 2019 R3 color-calibration software and an update to Client3 for Windows.
CalMan 2019 R3 includes updates to supported hardware across every license level. Support for hardware from Colorimetry Research, Datacolor, Dell, LG and X-Rite is included. Each license level has been examined to ensure that supported hardware closely matches the needs for professionals and home users alike.
Within CalMan 2019 R3, the Portrait Displays C6 HDR2000 has been upgraded and now includes a multitude of new meter modes (EDRs) from leading display manufacturers: Acer, ASUS, Canon, Dell, EIZO and Flanders Scientific. These EDRs provide the most accurate measurements for these displays short of creating a custom meter profile using a reference spectroradiometer.
CalMan 2019 R3 continues to focus on calibration-data reporting. All workflows included that have reportable data are now linked to the appropriate report(s). Dynamic reports for the SDR and HDR Toolkits (Analysis section) are a new addition to CalMan 2019 R3; these reports adapt based on user selections in the workflow.
CalMan 2019 R3 continues to add improvements to 3D LUTs when utilized in a color calibration. A new fixed-grid method (9, 17 and 21 cubed) has been added to provide an additional option when creating a 3D LUT. This new feature addresses thermal shifts in certain display technologies.
Client3 for Windows has been updated to include HDR pattern generation for monitor validation. Also included in this update is a new bypass mode that provides users the ability to measure a system exactly as it was shipped from the manufacturer.
