Light Illussion's LightSpace DPS (Free Display Check Version of LightSpace CMS) now supports up to 21-Point Cube (9.261 Color Points) Free Display Verification for daily performance test where accurancy is very critical.



Verification

LightSpace DPS has one main function - to be used for Display Profiling and Verification, allowing the user to determine if a given display requires re-calibration or not.

With LightSpace DPS it is possible to use any of LightSpace's profiling capabilities, but without the ability to 'save' any profiles. All checking needs to be performed on the profile before closing the software.

It is also possible to generate a LUT from the profile, which aids checking the profile information as the 3D cube view and 1D graph LUT will show the necessary corrections required for the display profiled. The LUT can also be 'virtually applied' to the display for re-profiling, howing the effect of the LUT corrections.



High Accuracy

Unlike inferior display checking systems, LightSpace CMS is not limited to a small range of colour patches, providing 'Quick Profiling' for daily checking, as well as full cube based profiling, including 21^3 with 9261 individual colour patches (and beyond) for unlimited accuracy when verifying the accuracy of any given display.

Quick daily verification takes seconds, and ensures no display drift, while full cube based profiling ensure any given display is actually accurate to the required colour space target.



Simple Confirmation

Display accuracy is simplicity itself to check, with the closer the cube image is to being a cube, the better the accuracy.

And being able to rotate the cube in 3D space makes it simple to spot any colours that are inaccurate anywhere in the volumetric colour space.

All this in addition to standard CIE, DeltaE, gamma graphs, including LightSpace's unique RGB Separation graph.



RGB Separation

RGB Separation' is a very quick and simple guide to likely display accuracy.

If this graph shows errors the display has to be considered inaccurate.

This license will activate the standard LightSpace Demo Download, turning it into the 'free' profiling version. The LightSpace CMS demo program needs to be downloaded separately.

LightSpace CMS 6.6.7.2061 (24 March 2015)

Light Illussion has just released the Next Generation of Color Mathematics for it's advanced Color Engine, which is at the heart of the unparalleled calibration accuracy of LightSpace CMS.

The original Color Engine had previously proven to be the most accurate, as well as the fastest available for display calibration, LUT generation, LUT conversion and LUT manipulation. However, nothing is ever perfect, and Light Illusion knew they could do better. After over 6 man-months of work the algorithms and mathematics that are at the core of the LightSpace Color Engine have been totally re-written and enhanced, with visible and measurable improvements in final calibration results.

Note: for users that have performed a recent display profiling, they don't need to re-measure again their displays. It's required only to install the new LightSpace version, load their measurement file and generate the ColorSpace conversion to get the new 3D LUT correction file and then upload it to their 3D LUT hardware device or to their 3D LUT capable monitors. This saves a lot of time.

Full Release Notes @ available here.

This version includes:

-- New Colour Engine mathematics and algorithms

-- New LUT Format for Canon 4K Professional Displays

-- Changed operation of VideoScale functions

-- Changed defaults for Convert Colour Spaces

-- Added Differential Gamma graph

-- Added support for DVDO AVLab TPG patch generation

-- Corrected Active LUT effect on initial patch in Measure mode

-- Fixed error with Probe Settings not being remembered correctly

-- Small changes for CR-250 integration

-- Added error message if CDL/CCC file invalid

-- Corrected minor Convert Colour Space white loss

-- Changed UHDTV label to UHD Rec2020

-- Added ST2084 Gamma profiles for Rec709, Rec2020, and P3

-- Fixed error with Hubble probe connection

-- Fixed duplicate LUT being applied to Ref Image when exporting Arri Looks

LightSpace CMS 7.0.0 is coming….

For LightSpace users, there some real interesting new features like these ones you can see below:

Quick Profiling

Additionally to the Quick Profiling of Primary/Secondary Colors measurements that were available since now, Gamut Saturations @ 75% or 100% Stimulus Level and Memory Colors (Color Checker Classic) options added, to quick overview the performance of any display.



Here is an example of the CIE chart after the Memory Colors measurement:



Gamut Triangle Level

The new Gamut Triangle Level function enables the visualization of a display's gamut at all matched RGB primary points throughout the full stimulus range. By cycling through list of available matched RGB primary points it is possible to see the shape and size of the Gamut, and see at what levels it is smaller or larger that the desired target.



When you will run a Quick Profiling of Primary Colors which measures 20-Point of Luminance per color channel @ 100% Saturation, you will be able later to check the 100% Saturation of any Luminance level to overview the gamut coverage triangle over these 20-Point Luminance levels to check if the gamut coverage remains the same or if is reduced; to find which pre-calibration settings give the largest coverage etc.

This is extremely helpful when it comes to understanding the underlying capabilities of a given display.

Stimulus Levels



The Stimulus Levels function is another of the 'filters' for the CIE graphs, and defines how the measured points are shown. As with all the points filters they are additive options, and will combine with any other filters selected. The Stimulus Levels filter will show any and all points that include the selected value within any R, G, or B stimulus data. This enables easier selection of a given point to enable it to be isolated via a double click to see the points associated measured color data and Delta-E values.

Delta-E

You can display at the CIE Chart only the colorpoints with the selected dE range, to check what areas of the display have more errors.



The Delta-E filter is also another of the 'filters' for the CIE graphs, and defines how the measured points are shown. As with all the points filters they are additive options, and will combine with any other filters selected. Therefore to see just the points within the available Delta-E ranges first disable all other filter tick boxes. The benefit of this filter function is that it enables a quick assessment of the spread of Delta-E values within the measured profile, allowing a very quick understanding of the overall accuracy of the display.

Reports

The new Reporting feature enables a .pdf export of the various graphs, as well as details on various aspects of the selected profile, including Luma range, contrast, Delta-E ranges, etc., as well as user editable sections for client name, display, probe data, and more.

LightSpace CMS 7.0.1.2172 (13 July 2015) has just released.

This is minor bug fix release. Not affecting LightSpace's Engine. Generally, for LightSpace users that have performed a recent display profiling and see that a new LightSpace has been released where it features some improvement in colorspace correction (for example), the users don't need to re-measure again their displays. It require only to install the new LightSpace version, load the latest measurement file and generate the ColorSpace conversion to get the new 3D LUT correction file and then upload it to their 3D LUT hardware device or to their 3D LUT capable monitors. This saves a lot of time.

LightSpace CMS 7.0.4.2251 (28 September 2015) has just released.

Changes

-- Anisometric Profiling patch sequence option

-- New LUT formats added

-- Canon display integration

-- Windows 10 COMs port issue resolved

-- Added TVLogic Binary LUT format

For OLED's/HDR displays it's been added an Anisometric Profiling patch sequence order option to LightSpace.

Anisometric sequences are better suited to displays that have any form of ABL, such as Plasmas and many OLEDs, and which also includes HDR displays where Sequential patch ordering can cause display overheating (overheating can actually be an issue on any display that has high peak luminance outputs, as it can cause the display to drift.
