Portrait Displays announced this week the release of Calman 2021 with the introduction of the brand-new Aurora Color Engine. Calman 2021 offers the Aurora Color Engine, which the company say has been built from the ground-up by implementing the latest in color science research. It uses next-generation Unity Grayscale technology for 3D neutral spline bypass when using a 1D LUT and 3D LUT for calibration. This new 3D LUT technology reduces or eliminates posterization and banding, improves the MatrixLUT formula for calibration and adds 13pt fixed grid options for patchsets and additional support for patchsets, according to Portrait Displays.
Besides support of the Aurora Color Engine, there are several other new features inside Calman 2021, including a new Pattern Insertion option, Calman Ready AutoCal support for LG 2021 series TVs, ASUS HDR Monitor calibration workflows, 1D LUT support for the Flanders Cube Generator and the ability to lock design mode on custom workflows. More information regarding Calman 2021 features can be found in the release notes.
