CalMAN 5.5.1 Preview - Build: 1964 Released @ 02 July 2015

''With the holiday weekend swiftly approaching, we decided to do a 5.5.1 preview release to the forums. This is basically 5.5.1 final, but is not going up on the web site until next week.''

Release Notes

Added support for OSEE as pattern generator for Ultimate, Studio, and ColorChecker license levels.

Added the OSEE file format for cube calibrations in SpectraCal Cube Generator.

Added a check box on the Source tab for madVR to force it into full screen mode while CalMAN takes readings. The window will be returned to its previous state when readings are done. This requires madVR version 0.88.14 or higher.

Resolved issue where Target lines on deltaE charts might not display once enabled.

Added Rec BT.2020 UHD and D65 P3 Gamuts to Studio Express and Studio Lite licenses.

Resolved an issue where Pattern Auto Advance would apply to an automated pattern generator.

Resolved an issue on the Lumagen Radiance (all models) where CalMAN would not reset the internal 3D LUT at the start of a cube calibration.

Resolved an issue where CalMAN would not recreate a settings file on startup if it were missing. This would cause CalMAN to crash on startup.

Fixed typo on the ColorChecker button on the last layout of the Studio Introduction workflow.

CalMAN 5.5.2 Open Beta - Build: 1966 Released @ 14 July 2015

Release Notes posted from SpectraCAL's Support Team

''So, we've got a new build that makes changes to the Radiance. Specifically we've changed how we connect and how we perform resets to 3D LUTs. This should speed up performance in these areas.

I've worked on this with a Radiance XD, 20xx, and 21xx series models and everything looks good, but we'd really like to get feedback from the field. Let us know how its going for you, if you have any issues, etc.''

CalMAN 5.5.2 Open Beta - Build: 1970 Released @ 22 July 2015

Release Notes

Added support for the Panasonic 2015 CR/CX/CZ models. I don't have confirmation on the regions that support this functionality, but it should be all of the regions which were supported before (Us/Canada/EU/NZ/Asia). Japan might also be added, but I don't have confirmation.

Added the ability to add an extra delay when switching in/out of full screen mode for madTPG. This delay applies to both Normal and Exclusive modes. Settings show up on the Source tab. The delay slider is in 1/100 of a second. We're looking into keeping full screen up during series reads, but that is going to have to wait until 5.6.0. This now requires madVR version 0.88.20 or higher.

Known Issues

We've added some extra grayscale points for the isMini, but they aren't quite working right at the moment.

We've added a White OLED edr to the C6, but the file is missing from the installer so its not working at the moment.

CalMAN Eyeglass is currently crashing when opening image files.

CalMAN 5.5.2 Open Beta - Build: 1977 Released @ 01 August 2015

Release Notes

The newly added White OLED table for the C6 is now in and functional.

Added SMTPE level points for 1D LUTs on the isMini

Resolved issue that caused CalMAN Eyeglass to crash when loading an image file.

Resolved issue that would cause the Jetis to not work with CalMAN is they were only calibrated 380-780.

Tutorial Basic and Tutorial Advanced workflows have been replaced with a new Home Express workflow. This is designed around MobileForge instead of calibration DVDs. We'd love some feedback on this new workflow.

Added capability for a Brightness and Contrast patterns for MobileForge.

CalMAN 5.6.0 Open Beta - Build: 2158 Released @ 22 September 2015

Release Notes

Updated the Quick Analysis workflow to include 2pt Grayscale and Dynamic Range layouts.

Major updates to the HT Enthusiast and SI Professional workflows.

Minor tweaks to the SI Basic and SI Advanced workflows.

Added RGB Triplet support for the QD 804 pattern generator.

Added Drift Compensation*

*The beginnings of Drift Compensation have been in since the first 5.6.0 beta and we've been working on improving the algorithms since.

CalMAN's iRP calibration takes additional measurements to track the drift of the display over the time it is under testing. This allows the measurement data to be corrected for both luminance and chromaticity to produce a final 3D LUT with a higher level of accuracy. This is especially valuable on displays that exhibit image retention.
