Dynamic Calibration is a revolutionary new approach to calibrating panels; maintaining uniformity while unlocking the full potential of LEDs, to achieve previously unattainable levels of brightness and colour saturation.
The legacy approach is to apply a fixed, factory-specified calibration that is used for all content over the entire life of the panel, which can result in panels performing below the brightness they are capable of.
Dynamic Calibration is highly flexible, using the immense power of the Tessera R2 receiver card’s Dynamic Engine to process information in real-time – with no added latency – to intelligently determine the best possible way to drive each LED.
This results in brighter whites, higher contrast ratios, more saturated colours, and true-to-life colour accuracy for incredible image depth and realism.
EXTREME BRIGHTNESS: Ultra-bright areas of video content make full use of the LEDs brightness for maximum visual punch
OUTSTANDING UNIFORMITY: Smooth areas of content are displayed with remarkable uniformity to ensure image clarity
PRECISE COLOUR ACCURACY: Sensitive areas of content, such as skin-tones, are perfectly balanced for authentic, lifelike colours
INTENSE COLOUR SATURATION: In vivid areas of colour, Dynamic Calibration adapts to employ the maximum available gamut of the LEDs, delivering eyecatching, vibrant imagery
The dynamic nature of the system means the desired brightness, primary colours and white point are all fully user-adjustable.
What would previously have required a lengthy and expensive recalibration process can now be done at any time from the simple new DynaCal user interface on any Tessera processor, with changes seamlessly reflected in real-time on the screen – even during a live event.
This new level of interactivity encourages experimentation and more aggressive choice of colour and brightness targets to unleash the performance of your LEDs.
Dynamic Calibration’s colour processing ensures beautiful uniform video content even at extremes of brightness and colour gamut.
Zebra indicators can be enabled to highlight areas of the image that are trying to drive the LEDs beyond their peak brightness or colour gamut, allowing for easy and quick fine-tuning.
This technology isn’t just for brand new LED panels; existing panels using the Tessera R2 receiver card can be given new lease of life with Dynamic Calibration by recalibrating them using Brompton’s Hydra system.
Panels may then be used with any Tessera processor, all of which fully support Dynamic Calibration following a free firmware update.
Only Dynamic Calibration offers the increased brightness and colour gamut that’s required to realise the benefits of High Dynamic Range content on supported processors.
The Dynamic Engine provides real-time compensation for thermal artefacts such as pink/cyan pin-cushioning, and gradients due to swapped modules.
Limitations in the driver chips, LEDs and panel electrical design can be overcome to ensure neutral colour balance across the entire greyscale.
