CalMAN 5.4.0 RC1 - Build: 1807 Released @ 26 November 2014
Lightning LUT Technology:
generate corrective 3D LUTs in five minutes or less. CalMAN’s new Lightning LUT technology allows users to quickly correct the output of their video monitors. Unique interpolation algorithms allow CalMAN to provide an accurate 3D LUT calibration while only reading a select number of points in a 3D colorspace. Available in CalMAN Ultimate.
IR Profiling (Intelligent Resolution Profiling):
create corrective 3D LUTs that fit your unique needs and time constraints. The process of creating a 3D LUT in CalMAN now offers users the option of setting specific time and quality preferences before beginning a 3D LUT calibration. Create a 3D LUT in under an hour or set no time constraints for a maximum quality calibration. Available in CalMAN Ultimate and CalMAN Professional.
Free CalMAN Eyeglass 3D LUT Visualization Tool:
upload your own photos to SpectraCal's free 3D LUT visualization tool to compare before-and-after results of 3D LUT calibrations. Located in the CalMAN Main Menu.
Added support for ASSIMILATE SCRATCH® and SCRATCH Lab® digital workflows as pattern generators. Supported in CalMAN Ultimate.
Added ASSIMILATE SCRATCH to the format drop-down on the SpectraCal Cube Generator.
Added support for the Lumagen Radiance 21xx series video processors with higher baud rate when using the built-in USB connection in CalMAN Professional and CalMAN Ultimate.
Added support for the Colorimetry Research CR-100 colorimeter in all license levels of CalMAN for Business.
Updated keyboard shortcuts for greater usability. New shortcuts are as follows:
A = AutoCal/AutoCube
C = Continuous Read
H = Read Grayscale High
L = Read Grayscale Low
S = Series Read
X = Stop
Arrow Key Right = Next Workflow Page
Arrow Key Left = Previous Workflow Page
Space Bar = Single Read
Added new Lightning LUT workflow to CalMAN Ultimate. Provides 3D LUT calibrations exclusively with CalMAN’s new Lightning LUT technology.
Updated interface for the new HP DreamColor firmware (v.230)
BT.1886 is now available in the CalMAN DDC controls for the Panasonic AX900 series displays.
Resolved issue where target lines weren't drawing on deltaE charts in reports.
Resolved issue where White and Black points were incorrect on Saturations Sweeps when in PC Levels.
Resolved issue with the VP401 where patterns could get out of sync.
On the CR-100, if you have initialized the meter with Sync On, then switch it off and then back on, the meter will still function as if Sync is set to off. You need to reinitialize the meter before Sync will enable again.
For Workflow Designers using CalMAN’s Design Mode Feature:
We have uncoupled the in workflow pattern window for performance reasons. This means that CalMAN will not wait for this window to update before taking a reading. In cases where you have created workflows which use these windows for taking readings, you will need to make a modification. When getting properties on these windows, you will see a new option called Sync Pattern for Calibration. You will want to check this box if the window is used for taking active readings. All workflows created before this change will have that box unchecked.
We recommend you remove the zoomed in CIE chart you might have on 3D Cube calibration layouts. This window can cause CalMAN to crash during calibration.
