I've been out of the loop for awhile and still trying wrap my head around HDR calibration and I've had a C6 for about 6 month. I want find out how to best calibrate it so that that my Oppo 205 can send a the HDR signal and the CG can process the signal the best that it can. That suck that you can't calibrate the CMS, it's the main reason for having an HDR set. Its like the early days again when CMS didn't work on the 1st gen LCD, Plasma and PJs.


Keep your eye on the greyramp during cal in hdr,very easy to get it miscolored

Keep upper grayscale patterns to a minimum to prevent heating up the panel, thereby throwing off your calibration settings. Better to do a sweep, adjust, then sweep again. This holds down the heating issues.

Hi Ted. I currently have Calman Control, just purchased in May. I also noticed that Control is no longer listed on the Spectra Cal website. When I messaged support, they said this:


"Yes, your license and program is up to date. However, we will not be selling any more CalMAN Control licenses in the future.

In the next few weeks you will get an email from SpectraCal outlining your All Access options for the future. I believe that you will be pleased with the options."

I then directly asked if it would just be wiser to upgrade to Enthusiast:

"I think you should wait to decide until you hear from us about future licensing options."

So, hopefully that means there'll be a reasonably discounted All-Access renewal cost and/or the Enthusiast features will be added to my license. FIngers crossed.

CalMan 5 Release Notes and Discussion

CalMAN 2017 Beta 3 (version 5.8.1.26) is available for download.

Business - http://files.spectracal.com/download...N_Business.exe
Home Theater - http://files.spectracal.com/download...alMAN_Home.exe
Studio - http://files.spectracal.com/download...MAN_Studio.exe



CalMAN 2017 requires updated maintenance as of June 2016.

Important: There is a known issue where the All Access\Maintenance installer check during an upgrade is incorrectly identified as being valid. In this situation the installer will say the license is valid for the upgrade, but ultimately the build will fail to license.

If you continue with the installation and find yourself in a situation where you cannot license, go into Licensing, click the Deactivate button, uninstall beta 3 and roll back to a previous version.

As mentioned above, Maintenance will need to have been purchased June 2016 or later in order for your license key to be good with CalMAN 2017.

Additional license manager/machine ID fixes. There have been a few licensing manager fixes applied in the 2017 Beta releases. For users limited to CalMAN 2016 R2 release and do not not have a the ability to update to 2017, the License Manager fixes are planned to be provided in a CalMAN 2016 R3 patch release.

In prep for the CalMAN 2017 release, This installer will deactivate CalMAN. CalMAN will need to be reactivated upon first launch. A few weeks ago, everyone's accounts were set to 10 deactivations.

CalMAN now supports HDR10 and HLG calibrations on the Panasonic 2017 EZxxx Series displays. Pattern insertion is recommended for HDR calibration (5 second interval, 5 sec duration, 0% level) this prevents the panel from overheating during sustained Bright patches.

Added support for the new Dolby Vision Custom workflow.
Licenses: Ultimate, Professional, Expert, Studio, Enthusiast

The new Dolby Vision Custom calibration workflow/process for displays that support a custom Dolby Vision Configuration File is now enabled in CalMAN. Currently the only TV to support this is the 2017 LG OLED.
The process requires a pattern generator that supports Dolby Vision metadata.

CalMAN uses a new type of Dolby Vision metadata to put the color volume mapping engine into bypass mode. CalMAN then calibrates the display and generates a new Dolby Vision configuration file that is loaded into the supported TV via USB stick.

Resolved an issue with the Radiance Pro where the wrong LUT could get assigned to the pattern generator.

Resolved an issue on the Panasonic 2017 EZxxx Series displays where the Color temperature DDC control would stay at Warm2 when selected.

Resolved an issue where CalMAN would display an inaccurate error message which attempting to connect to the Murideo 6G.

Resolved an issue with LUT file formatting for OSEE displays.
