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.
