Black level is not the
most important parameter for image fidelity
seriously how can you say something like that? and you have a signature stating that you are a pro calibrator then i guess it only helps me in being more careful if i were going you ask you to calibrate my HDTV.
Most studio's use pro IPS monitors for mastering video and editing video, these IPS monitor's have really bad black levels so you are saying that you know better than the guys editing movies in studio's?
Most phones use OLED screens which have blacks that only plasma's can dream of but still LCD based panels are rated as reference mobile displays because of their superiority in other pic parameters.
I guess you did not understand my point, my point i actually don't care much about these THX certifications as these are more of marketing tools and hence this link does not change my opinion about THX, i used to have a THX certified monitor speaker for my pc audio but now i use a studio monitor which is not THX certified, i like my current monitor speaker 10x more than the THX certified speakers i used to have,so from my personal experience i have learned THX does not determine the pinnacle of quality or sometimes is not even close.
Here's a quote from the article you referenced:
Don’t fixate on black level. Yes, it’s important, but contrast ratio far more so. Fortunately, we measure both here.
Contrast ratio is White level divided by black level, whether ON/OFF or ANSI. For any given White level, the darkest display has the highest CR. That's all there is to it. And you'll see at the Shootout assuming they continue with the same format as last year, all displays White levels will be the same. The darkest black will be the contrast winner in that department.
Studio colorists would love to use PDP instead of IPS but unfortunately ABL makes color luminance accuracy impossible so they are stuck with poor blacks. All calibrators are aware that changes in pattern size produce changes in gamma and there is nothing that can be done about it.
And it's you who doesn't understand my
point. I neither spoke of nor care about your speakers.
