That's right, HCFR changes the target based on user selected gamma options.

And then did not properly use calman-engine RGB triplets from TED disk?

Hi Ted,

I looked at your offer for your free version for your calibration disc. I was wondering why you just don't offer a straight forward download instead of filling out forms or to even register? I am highly suspicious of individuals / websites that want information before they will submit what they offer for free. I hope that you can shed some light as to why the need for this procedure.

Hi Randal,

The only details that you need to enter is name - email - country; has Red colored asterisk.

For all the other details it says ''If you like, you can fill also the following questions''.

The same basic details (name-email etc) are required before downloading CalMAN ColorChecker and LightSpace DPS also.

On-line space provider service has some badwidth I'm paying for, if I give out just a download link visible to all, there is no control about that available space, that link will be shared to some thousand sites, with some thousand downloads per month so I will out of bandwith and I will have to pay some more money to get extra available space etc.

After sending to the user the instructions and download link via e-mail, if he has a question he can reply to my email address (so I'm giving the user my email address too), this is by far more easier and fast to reply to a possible user question.

PS: If you have to reply to 20-30 emails per day with questions and countdown the time is taking to reply to each question you will understand better why a simple registration is required for me to know with who I'm talking about and easier for me to look the email history per user, remember what we have discussed before a long time etc. In case he will ask something again after some time.... most of the user are starting by describing their setup/meter/software and methods are using when they are communicating me for some tips or help etc. Having email history is very important for me to remember each details discussed per user.

Hi Ted:

Congratulations on a fantastic Release for TED’s Cal Disk1.1 and Calibration Media Files (MKV and MP4). What's new that I tested: 21x21x21 cube color patches for both TED’s Cal Disk 1.1 and Media Files MKV (did not test MP4).

Test Setup: I calibrated my 2013 Epson 6020 Projector with TED's Calibration Disk 1.1 in the OPPO95 Blu Ray Player to generate the Reference Patterns and grayscale & LUT calibration color patches. I calibrated my 2011 Sony55 LED TV using TED's MKV Media Files loaded in WDTV (Western Digital TV External Media Player w. 1TB HdDrv) to generate the Reference Patterns and grayscale & LUT calibration color patches. The grayscale was adjusted using Chromapure CMS for both the Projector and TV. Light Space LUT CMS was used for 21pt LUT calibrations for both Projector and TV. The K10A was used as the field meter and the PR-670 as the Reference Meter (for profiling the K10A).

Notable Points:

1. The use of TED's contrast/brightness and advanced contrast/brightness patterns are worth their weight in gold! Once the Projector’s dynamic range was set by ISF/THX standards, I had to reduce contrast from 45nits to 38nits (16% reduction) to see the full range of whiter than whites … as noted by TED’s Contrast Patterns. The Epson 6020 Projector is not like the Sony TV where one can see the full range of whiter than whites no matter how high one sets the contrast control. TED's Cal Disk is the only disk that has these patterns that I'm aware of. Just for this reason alone, it’s worth purchasing TED’s 1.1 Calibration Disk and Calibration Media Files.

2. I have MKV movies on the WDTV Media Player (I have the original Blu Ray Disks as well). TED's Media Files are the only Calibration Media (MKV or MP4) Files that I'm aware of that can transform an external or PC internal media player into a signal generator to produce Calibration Reference Patterns and Color Patches for Light Space, Chromapure and calMAN Calibration Management Systems. I just download TED’s MKV Cal files into the WDTV’s 1TB disk and used its remote control to display Reference Patterns and start the Color Patch sequences. The per color patch interval was selected at 6 seconds per color patch. There is a 2 second option once you gain experience. The 6 second option allows enough time for newbie’s to make minor “procedural” mistakes and recover from them without having to restart the entire sequence. If you want to calibrate the entire video chain from source (Media Player) to TV/Projector, get TEDs Media Files. Fantastic, reasonably easy to use and the price is outstanding. TED is really releasing some fantastic high quality products and I am very happy with his new Media Calibration Files!

3. Also what’s new is the addition of 21pt (21x21x21) patch sequence for Light Space LUT CMS (calMAN does not currently support 21pt). Both TED’s Cal Disk 1.1 (Blu Ray Players) and 1.1 Media Calibration Files (MKV and MP4 Media Players) support this. My Epson Projector is very non-linear and the 21pt LUT is noticeably better than the 17pt (17x17x17) … particularly in the projector’s RGB Separation/Linearity performance. 21pt is now my defacto LUT size standard. TED now delivers 21pt high quality capability at a very affordable price.

Wrap Up:

I was very, very happy with the calibration results. I highly recommend turning your blu ray and media player into a signal generator powered by TED. wink.gif)))))


Kind Regards,

JJ

LightSpace CMS (Full Version) is aimed for Post-Production, Film, Post-Production & Broadcast industries.

It has ACES (Academy Colour Encoding System) and CDL (Colour Decision List) associated workflows and tools, export 3D LUT's to Dolby Monitors, Eizo ColoEdge, FSI, Penda, TVLogic, Ossehundends of LUT formats for Apple Color, Assimilate Scratch, Autodesk Lustre, Flame and Smoke, Black Magic Design Resolve, Nucoda Film Master and Fuse, FilmLight BaseLight, Pandora Revolution, Quantel iQ, eQ & Pablo, SGO Mistika, Eyeon Fusion, Adobe PhotoShop, After Effects, SpeedGrade, Premier, The Foundry Nuke, Tcube, Cine-tal Davio, Convergent Design, frontNICHE, Fujifilm, SmallHD and many more formats that have no use to HT world.

But when I created my disk (late 2012) only the LightSpace CMS licence was available for large 3D Cube Profilings (since LightSpace CMS was used to pro-world from 2009 for 17-Point Cube Profilings) that had Lumagen and eeColor support .... later, during at 2013 other lower cost licencies of LightSpace came out for HT market.

There 2 different LightSpace Home Cinema Software Licence Versions:

LightSpace HCL (Home Cinema Light) & LightSpace HCC (Home Cinema Calibration).

Both versions share the same features as the main LightSpace CMS (Full Version) but are limited to export 3D LUTs to eeColor or Lumagen Radiance / Radiance 2XXX Video Processors only, as these are the only LUT Devices in the Home Cinema Market with HDMI In-Out.

eeColor LUT Formats can be loaded directly to MadVR Video Renderer also.

Meter Support is the difference between that two LightSpace Home Cinema Versions.

I purchased Ted's disc last week and all I can say is i'm blown away with the huge amount of patterns available, not only to aid calibration but verification too.

I just want to thank Ted for the hard work he has put into this disk making it a Professional aid that I would happily recommend to anyone and it's a bargain price for it's huge content smile.gif

Thanks Ted!

Dear disk users,

After confirmation from Zoyd; the developer of current HCFR, the disk is officially compatible with HCFR Open Source Software. This has been discussed here & here.

So this makes the Ted's LightSpace Calibration Disk now compatible with all available calibration solutions below:



HCFR users can use some CalMAN and ChromaPure Chapters from current version of the disk to perform measurements with HCFR.

The available Disk Chapters that are accurate and match the HCFR's Color Engine Calculations are the following:



Note: Uncheck ''use round down levels" that is located to HCFR Preferencies -> General.

Also HCFR 3.1.1 release added CalMAN's ColorChecker SG measurements support; that made my disk the only available calibration disk with that feature, you can confirm that by checking the HCFR's Release Notes here.
