JVC AND SPECTRACAL DEVELOP NEW CALMAN COMMERCIAL PROJECTOR CALIBRATION INTERFACE

New Workflow Demonstrated at 2011 HPA Tech Retreat

WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., today announced its collaboration with SpectraCal to create a custom calibration interface within the CalMAN Commercial software for the new DLA-RS60U and DLA-RS50U 3D-enabled D-ILA Reference Series projectors. The software will be demonstrated in the Demo Room at the 2011 HPA Tech Retreat®, the annual conference of the Hollywood Post Alliance trade association, which begins today in Rancho Mirage, Calif.

A new custom interface within the CalMAN Commercial software simplifies calibration of the new JVC DLA-RS60U and DLA-RS50U 3D-enabled D-ILA Reference Series projectors.

Calibrating projectors has generally been a complicated process using on-screen menus and a remote control. With CalMAN’s Direct Device Control (DDC) interface, however, the process is as simple as adjusting the relative height of bars on a chart. CalMAN directly communicates with the JVC projector and measures the result of each change to achieve the desired result.
“The new interactive interface streamlines the calibration process while providing full reporting for tracking results,? said Gary Klasmeier, product engineering manager, D-ILA Systems, JVC Professional Products Company. “It organizes the workflow into a consistent and repeatable procedure for a number of adjustments, which improves accuracy and efficiency.?

CalMAN offers three levels of support for JVC’s DLA-RS60 and DLA-RS50 home cinema projectors. It provides access to individual projector controls, such as brightness and contrast adjustments, on the computer interface – no remote control required. Its interactive charts allow the calibrator to set the projector output to any desired standards. Plus, a new “one-button? CalMAN-AC™ automated calibration solution automatically adjusts all settings across multiple measurement points as a single operation.

With its control over the projector’s color management system (CMS), adjustments that used to require hours can be accomplished in minutes. “CMS work is notoriously complicated and difficult to get right,? explained Derek Smith, SpectraCal CEO. “With the extremely well implemented CMS interfaces in the new JVC line, and CalMAN’s DDC, you can create stunningly beautiful and accurate images – and you don’t need a Ph.D. in physics and all day to make it happen.?

The flagship projector of the JVC Reference Series product line, the DLA-RS60U delivers 100,000:1 native contrast ratio, which is achieved through JVC’s wire-grid optical engine and D-ILA imagers, not a dynamic iris to artificially enhance contrast specifications. The DLA-RS50U offers 70,000:1 native contrast ratio. Both projectors support custom gamma tables, color space, and color point, and are THX® and ISF Certified to ensure exceptional picture quality in critical viewing environments.

CalMAN Commercial is priced at $2,495 and is available now. SpectraCal also offers CalMAN Expert, which is priced at $1,495 but does not offer CalMAN-AC automated calibration. An evaluation version of the software is available at www.spectracal.com.
