LightSpace CMS 8.0.1.2662 (14 August 2017) has been released.

As is usual for Light Illusion's continued development process for LightSpace CMS a raft of new developments have been released.

Release Notes

Added correct Icon for Uninstaller.

Increased i1D3 Integration Time to max 6 seconds.

Changed functionality for ‘Stimulus Level’ filter in CIE charts.

Added ‘Clip’ graph, to be used in conjunction with the Gamma graphs. What the graph shows is the 'rate of change' for each grey scale point, which in turn means showing when the tangent of a point has deviated from the expected value. It should be viewed in conjunction with the Gamma and DifGamma graphs.

Added ‘Drift’ graph accessible via ‘Manage Colour Spaces/Display’. The Drift tab shows just the 'Drift' patches held within a profile, enabling display/probe drift over time to be assessed.

There as an Alpha version available by request.

Steve Shaw has posted about this here.

''We have a new Alpha version of LightSpace available for the new Gen3 colour engine.

We have one addition/change to make, which will improve black/near blacks.

(The improvements in the Gen3 Engine have highlighted an issue with the way near backs are handled, which the older Gen2 engine masked.)

That will be re-developed for the final release - of which there may be a 'Beta' version prior to release.''

We have an update from Steve Shaw:

''Another update, with some background information.

We have been working on the new Gen3 Colour Engine for some months - nearly a year in total.
When we announced the work we were of the view were were a few weeks away from a final release.
However, the improvements made at that time have further revealed additional areas of potential improvement, which in turn have revealed yet more areas for improvement... a cyclical process of increasing improvements!

We have been working hard on those additional areas since our first announcement of the Gen3 engine.

Right now, we have a new Alpha available that is extremely close to a final release.
We have some small additional changes still to be made, but this is now virtually finalised.

As always, send a request for access to this new Alpha.

Steve''

Steve Shaw has just posted an update about the status of development for the new Gen3 engine here.

''Hopefully, this will be the last 'update' before we fully release the new Gen3 Colour Engine!

This has been a lot more work that originally expected, as every time we made improvements in the calibration results, another area for improvement was revealed. And we have no intention of leaving anything that could compromise the final results.

Basically, each individual improvement revealed other areas where the results were potentially less than optimal, but were being masked by the previous areas of less than perfect results.

And yet, all independent tests show the existing LightSpace Colour Engine is more accurate than alternative calibration systems...

To define all the different areas where improvements were possible we had to develop a totally new set of 'stress tests' for calibration processing, which included writing new tools to assess each and every step in the process... that has been a lot of work in itself, and required the development of new software tools, as well as synthetic generators to mimic different display issues.

I am presently testing a new Alpha, provided by the dev. team last night.

This does look like a serious candidate for full release.

LightSpace CMS 9.0.0.2772 (10 February 2018) has been released, its the biggest even change to LightSpace CMS!

Light Illusion is delighted to announce a totally new development of the LightSpace CMS advanced Colour Engine, which is at the heart of the unparalleled calibration accuracy of LightSpace CMS.

In excess of 11 man-months of development work has gone into a total rewrite and enhancement of the advanced algorithms and mathematics that are at the core of the LightSpace Colour Engine, with visible and measurable improvements in all final calibration results.

Although the existing 2nd Generation Colour Engine has already proven to be more accurate, as well as faster, than any alternative calibration system, nothing is ever perfect, and we knew we could do better. And the new Gen3 Colour Engine does just that, enhancing every aspect of LightSpace based calibration.

Extensive Beta Testing has shown significant benefit across the board, with improved grey-scale tracking, better control of blacks & shadows, greater accuracy for skin tones and other memory colours, with greatly reduced Delta-E values overall.

The following graphs show the existing Gen2 Colour Engine vs. the new Gen3. The improved calibration is easy to see, with less random/noisy CIE plots, and greatly improved dE distribution.







Note: This is an OLED display calibrated with an i1D3 probe. For clarity those point below the probe's minimum brightness threshold have been removed from the CIE plots, but are included in the dE Distribution graphs.

With the Gen3 Colour Engine the total volumetric accuracy of any calibration has been greatly improved!

Release Notes

New 3rd Gen. Colour Engine greatly increasing calibration accuracy.

Added initial support for Eizo Prominence CG3145.

Edit Profile Points in pop-up window.

Add new graphs to PDF reports.

Added Super White option for VideoScale.

Improved probe switching and connecting operation.

Added a catch for patch read value with zero Z or negative value (XYZ).

Note: All LightSpace related guides which are available online has been updated to reflect changes the latest released version of LightSpace introduced.

All new features and developments are provided free to existing customers, continuing Light Illusion's approach of no additional costs or yearly support fees for all its software systems.

LightSpace Beta with Patch Stabilisation Insertion feature.

To fight drifting, the LightSpace had 2 features which are working very good; Drift Compensation and Anisometric patch sequence which both of them helps to final 3D LUT correction generation for better final results.

Using Drift Compensation feature enabled with 30 value for example, LightSpace it takes a one White measurement per 30 patches and at the end it's including to the correction 3D LUT any display 'drifting over the time' issues, we have seen that OLED's/Plasma's are not stable displays during the required measuring time and this features helps a lot to the final 3D LUT generation.

Anisometric patch sequence is helping a lot also and it's better suited to displays that have any form of ABL, such as Plasmas and many OLEDs, 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. Anisometric patch sequence is using an algorithm to display the patches with one dark/one bright patch order in simple words.

We have seen with Plasmas that luminance drop because when the panel or electronics increase their temperature (or PSU overload), the display has sensors to panel and electronics area to monitor these changes, so to protect the panel/electronics, it's reducing the output to protect and prevent any damage.

With OLED's there strange shiftings and weird luminance changes from thermal changes to the pixels of the pattern area so to help the panel cool down there is added a Patch Stabilisation Insertion feature.

The Stabilisation feature you can find it to the 'Options' menu.



The main idea is to add black frames displayed for x.xx sec. time between each other colorpatch (for example 200ms of black patch) but there capability to select any color (any RGB triplet) and decide exact the time you want for these patches to be displayed in milliseconds. After testing we will find out which patch insertion is better, a black frame or a dark gray one...or which timing provides better results etc.

These 'Stabilisation' patches are presently only with 'profiling'; but to the official release there will be available to 'Manual Measure', for LightSpace DPS (free license level) users to be able to use them also.

For a download link of this Beta. please send me msg here only: http://www.displaycalibrations.com/contact_us.html
