LG's upcoming 4K TVs will offer auto calibration capabilities.
Portrait Displays has announced a new partnership with LG to incorporate an auto calibration options for LG's 2018 OLED and SUPER UHD TV lineup. The feature is being demoed this week at CES in Las Vegas using a pre-release version of Portrait's flagship software CalMAN by SpectraCal.
"The LG TVs with CalMAN AutoCal blur the distinction between the professional reference monitor and the consumer television," said Martin Fishman, Co-CEO of Portrait Displays.
With auto calibration, users can connect CalMAN software on their computer to a supported LG TV model using Wi-Fi or Ethernet. From there, the feature allows CalMAN's AutoCal to determine the picture setting adjustments in minutes, greatly simplifying what is usually a much more complicated and time consuming process under the typical manual method. In addition, the AutoCal feature also allows the software to access the display's internal look-up tables (1D and 3D LUTs) enabling the process to go beyond the adjustment ranges of manual on screen controls, resulting in color accuracy precision that could rival professional reference monitors.
"The addition of the world's leading auto calibration software from Portrait Displays to our 2018 LG OLED and SUPER UHD TV models will greatly streamline the process for professional calibrators and ensure that consumers will be able to enjoy the full potential of their LG OLED or SUPER UHD television," said Neil Robinson, LG's Director of Technology Partnerships.
CalMAN AutoCal by SpectraCal for 2018 LG TVs will offer support for standard dynamic range (SDR), HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision calibrations. The AutoCal solution is expected to launch in tandem with LG's 2018 OLED and SUPER UHD TV lineup later this year.
