Las Vegas, NV – January 4, 2017
Leading U.S.-based software developer Portrait Displays announced today an expanded partnership, Samsung Electronics, to begin the measurement of color volume in TV displays through its proprietary CalMAN software. This enhanced auto calibration tool is expected to become available simultaneously with Samsung’s 2017 QLED TV lineup.
Portrait Displays‘ CalMAN software is the video calibration solution used by nearly every professional video calibrator, and by most end users in broadcast, production and post-production. It is also the leading market solution for home video enthusiasts.
“We are excited to partner with Portrait Displays, the world leader in color accuracy,” said John Ryu, Vice President, Visual Display Samsung. “With the increased color volume in our QLED TV lineup, we are providing a stronger, more vibrant picture quality experience that can be measured in more detail.”
“Portrait Displays is honored to have been chosen by Samsung as its color measurement and calibration partner,” said Martin Fishman, Portrait Display’s co-CEO. “Our technical team is working closely with the experts at Samsung to easily calibrate the wide color spectrum of the Samsung QLED display.”
Media were able to see first-hand CalMAN’s color volume calculator demonstrated by Portrait Displays at 2017 CES®.
