Announced this week at CES, CalMAN PatternGen is a pattern generator built into the 2019 Panasonic GZ2000 OLED TV exclusively accessed with CalMAN color calibration software. CalMAN PatternGen directly communicates with CalMAN software to provide on-screen patterns for color calibration. With CalMAN PatternGen, the purchase of an expensive external pattern generator is no longer required to calibrate and enjoy a superior viewing experience. This greatly lowers the cost of entry for consumers and professionals alike. All that is required for calibration of the GZ2000 is a meter such as the SpectraCal C6 HDR2000, and CalMAN color calibration software.
Calibration is the process of fine-tuning the color settings on a television to make the colors more accurate and lifelike, optimizing the video experience and making films, TV shows, and other media match the creator’s intent.
“The Panasonic OLED televisions calibrate to an extremely fine level of precision,” said Eric Brumm, President and CEO of Portrait Displays. “With the inclusion of CalMAN PatternGen, the process of adjusting the television to ensure that you’re seeing everything it is capable of becomes even easier,” Brumm said.
The Panasonic GZ2000 OLED TV is CalMAN Ready, ensuring a seamless integration with CalMAN color calibration software. Consumers and professionals can easily perform calibrations utilizing CalMAN’s AutoCal (auto calibration) functionality. In addition to being much faster than manual calibration, AutoCal delivers much more consistent and reliable results.
“We’ve worked very closely with the Portrait Displays team to ensure that viewers have the best experience possible,” said Toshihiro Takagi, Product Planning Manager for Panasonic. “And with CalMAN PatternGen, the process of getting there is greatly simplified,” Takagi said.
CalMAN AutoCal and CalMAN PatternGen support for the recently announced Panasonic GZ2000 will be demonstrated for the first time at the Panasonic Convention in Frankfurt Germany in February. The latest Portrait Displays’ CalMAN 2019 software will be available when the Panasonic TVs are released later this year.
