Projector Certification Testing Announced For HDR10+ Profile
HDR10+ Technologies LLC used the first day of CEDIA Expo to reveal that they have completed technical and test specifications for implementation of the HDR10+ dynamic metadata high dynamic range profile in home theater video projectors.
The test specifications will be used to certify projectors for HDR10+ use by projector manufacturer licensees.
The group said the specifications for licensed products – along with full certification support — will help ensure very big screen home entertainment enthusiasts can see 4K images “as their creators intended.”
According to HDR10+ Technologies profile usage continues to grow with more than 118 adopters currently offering or planning to provide a variety of compatible devices in both home and mobile product categories, including the latest 4K and 8K televisions.
JVC’s new projector announcements at the show today underscore availability of HDR10+ in a projector context.
“We are very excited at JVC to introduce the first standard home theater projector series that complies with the new HDR10+ Projector specifications. HDR10+ allows the true home theater enthusiast to reproduce the director’s intent automatically and in real time,” said Robert Budde, National Product Manager for D-ILA projectors at JVCKenwood USA. “The HDR10+ format easily takes advantage of JVC’s advanced dynamic tone mapping, high native contrast and 32-point gamma to provide the most stunning HDR image every time.”
The specifications are said to address a number of key performance parameters, including Peak Luminance Level, Color Space, White Point, Color Gamut and Tone-mapping. These allow HDR picture quality to be continuously adjusted, on a scene-by-scene basis, to ensure optimum brightness and contrast.
To support the adoption of HDR10+ Projectors, the HDR10+ Technologies LLC is also approving Authorized Test Centers that are capable of conducting the full range of performance testing. Among these centers is Allion Japan.
The test centers will take into account “the unique nature of each projector into account and ensure that it is properly adjusted for various throw distances and installation requirements.”
