Chris is not the first to arrive at the conclusion that we need to test and measure for the Contrast at a given resolution, or the other way round the resolution is that frequency/number of pixels/lines that can be displayed with a given level of contrast. And color resolution and so on.
Luminance contrast can be dependent on colour contrast, hence Florian Friedrich CEO of the German test laboratory, AVTOP (that also developed the HDFury HDR control software) argument against colour subpixel subsampling a few years ago.

ICDM turned this into a standard as Bob Raikes that took over as editor/publisher at DisplayDaily from Chris Chinnock, points out.

At the time, and after a lot of thought, I came to the conclusion that the only way to really specify the resolution was to quote the resolution and also the contrast between adjacent pixels at that resolution (which I called detail contrast). The idea was that monitor buyers would then be able to decide what level of detail contrast was needed for a particular application and set their 'cut off' for tenders and RFQs at that level. That would have really helped me to communicate the superior quality of my products to customers without having to get into side by side demonstrations (which we invariably won, in terms of image quality, but which took a lot of time).

Unfortunately, in those days, I was a "sharp end" in sales and marketing and really didn't understand the way that the display metrology community and supply chain worked, so I wasn't able to change things at all.

The controversy on "what is resolution" may have now been resolved (pun intended) by a decision by the ICDM in May to adopt a modified method for defining resolution in the current IDMS standard for display measurement, as the previous version had been created with only RGB pixels in mind.

The key point about the new definition is that it states that the contrast (Michelson contrast in this case, which helps to avoid issues with displays where pixels can be completely off, such as OLEDs, and which then always show infinite contrast because you are, effectively, dividing by zero) has to be specified at the claimed resolution. "Pass and fail" limits (25% for video and 50% for computer monitors) are still available, but the contrast also has to be shown. That means, effectively, two numbers - the resolution and the contrast at that resolution.

Candice H. Brown Elliot delves deeper into the issue and new standard.

Just wondering if commercial operators see sense in going with the premium HC projectors. For commercial operators commercial reasons drive decisions, not just the pure image and sound quality. The theater section, where one would expect the story on the capabilities and features, equipment used for each theater to be told, on his company's website, is still empty. So I have no clue what kind of Barco's he using at the moment. I am sure it is (way) better than average, looks like a small chain with an interested owner/operator, that cares for the exhibition quality. Taking the time and exerting the effort to go visit the state of the art demo, alone is proof of that.
For sure he will consider how he can improve picture quality in the future but this is nothing that will be discuss public I think.
SiliconCore will be showing its shipping 1.5mm, and 2.6mm pitch SMD LED display's. Plus its new COB and LISA manufacturing process combination will be showed in combination with a new LED driver Z.A.C.H, to offer HDR on an LED display.


SiliconCore will debut its Z.A.C.H. LED Driver Chip at Infocomm 2017, the result of three years of research and development, giving its displays market leading dynamic range and color reproduction.

Z.A.C.H., the latest technology invention from SiliconCore stands for Z(Impedance) Adjustment for Color Homogeneity. The technology embedded in the driver chip can accurately detect impedance variations of each LED and apply an adjustment compensation. This achieves uniform brightness and homogenous color at especially low brightness levels.

Showcased as a 4K 1.2mm LED Display at Infocomm, the Z.A.C.H. LED Driver enabled SiliconCore display, already the brightest in the industry, provides accurate color reproduction in the areas of low brightness. This is most evident in pictures with shadows and areas of greatest contrast from light to dark. Combined with SiliconCore’s low power Common Cathode Technology (CCT) a 4K screen with the Z.A.C.H. LED driver can achieve uniform maximum brightness of over 1,800 Nits and minimum brightness under 0.1Nits. The effective dynamic range is over 18,000 to 1 or over 14 bits. Reproduction of color can be achieved way beyond rec .2020 color bit depth which is fast becoming an industry standard.

SiliconCore Lavender 1.2mm, Magnolia 1.5 and Camellia 0.95 will be the first displays to ship with the new Z.A.C.H. LED drivers in July . This technology will be ideal for cinema, command and control and simulation environments thanks to the incredible high dynamic range and color fidelity of the display. Corporate and retail clients will notice a difference in areas of greatest contrast.

Eric Li, CEO of SiliconCore explains:
“LED has two natural characteristics that can make LED displays far superior than any other display technology, one is high energy efficiency and the other is fast response time. Our Common Cathode technology preserves the energy efficiency advantage and today this latest invention of Z.A.C.H. preserves the response time advantage. SiliconCore’s electronic design team has integrated all these technologies into an LED driver design which preserves these natural characteristics, resulting in energy efficiency, rapid response time and being able to maintain incredible color over a long lifetime”.

“This new chip is a breakthrough for LED Displays, producing fully immersive picture quality for simulation and highly detailed image applications”.
Visit booth 4660 at Infocomm in Orlando for a demonstration of the new Z.A.C.H.LED driver chip, alongside SiliconCore’s LISA technology platform, market changing innovations due to reach the market in 2018.
It is pitted against the new Panasonic EVA1 launched last weekend at Cinegear, but with the roughly the same availability as the Canon late this summer/early fall. And the Black Magic Design Ursa Mini (Pro) that is already on the market.
Canon U.S.A. Announces New Canon EOS C200 And EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras In Continued Expansion Of Cinema EOS System
New Offerings Bring Performance and Versatility, Combining Core Canon Technologies with New 4K Video Formats Optimized for HDR Applications

Canon Cinema EOS C200 Digital Cinema Camera   Canon U.S.A., Inc. Canon Cinema EOS C200 Digital Cinema Camera
MELVILLE, N.Y., May 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the Canon EOS C200 and Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras, the latest additions to its acclaimed Cinema EOS line of professional cinema cameras. Designed to meet the demanding needs of filmmakers and TV production users, the new Canon cinema offerings will combine the ease of use of entry level cinema cameras with exciting new, high-end features that are ideal for cinema, documentary, wildlife, wedding and events productions.

Representing the third generation of the Cinema EOS system, the Canon EOS C200 and Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras feature the latest in Canon technologies and offer two 4K video formats, Canon's new Cinema RAW Light and MP4, optimized for those interested in recording beautiful HDR video. Alongside a newly developed dual DIGIC DV6 image processing system, Canon's celebrated Dual Pixel CMOS AF system and improved operability for professionals, these new products are capable of capturing stunning 4K video across a variety of production applications.

"Building upon the success of our Cinema EOS system and taking into account feedback from users in the field, the new Canon EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras provide powerful and versatile solutions for production users eager to expand their creativity and explore the possibilities of HDR cinematography," said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO of Canon U.S.A., Inc. "With an innovative new file formats available, alongside improved operability that professionals need, the new generation of Cinema EOS cameras are poised to become the camera of choice for many in the filmmaker community."

Based on feedback from Cinema EOS users, this new offering will be available in two configurations, while retaining the same core technologies within. The Canon EOS C200 Digital Cinema Camera is a production-ready solution that can be used right out of the box, accompanied by an LCD Monitor, LCD Attachment, Camera Grip and Handle Unit. The camera also features a 1.77 million dot OLED Electronic View Finder (EVF). For users who crave more versatility and the ability to craft custom setups tailored to their subject or environment, the Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera offers cinematographers the same camera without these accessories and the EVF to optimize shooting using a gimbal, drone or a variety of other configurations.

New Features and Benefits
The Canon EOS C200 and Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras sport the same 8.85MP CMOS sensor, that combines with a newly developed dual DIGIC DV6 image processing system to help process high-resolution image data and record video from Full HD (1920x1080) and 2K (2048x1080) to 4K UHD (3840x2160) and 4K DCI (4096x2160). A core staple of the third generation Cinema EOS System, this new processing platform offers wide-ranging expressive capabilities and improved operation when capturing high-quality HDR video.

The combination of sensor and newly developed processing system also allows for the support for two new 4K file formats designed to help optimize workflow and make 4K and HDR recording more accessible to filmmakers. Cinema RAW Light, available in 4K 60p/50p at 10 bit and 30p/25p/24p at 12 bit, allows users to record data internally to a CFast™ card by cutting data size to about one-third to one-fifth of a Cinema RAW file, without losing grading flexibility. Due to the reduced file size, users will appreciate rich dynamic range and easier post processing without sacrificing true 4K quality. Alongside recording to a CFast™ card, proxy data (MP4) can also be simultaneously recorded to an SD card for use in offline editing.

Additionally, filmmakers will also be able to export 4K in MP4 format on versatile SD media cards at 60/50/30/25/24P at 8 bit. Support for UHD recording allows for use in cinema and broadcasting applications or scenarios where long recording times are needed while still maintaining top image quality. The digital cinema cameras also offer slow motion Full HD recording support at up to 120fps to help ensure every frame is captured in exquisite detail.

The Canon EOS C200 and Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras feature Innovative Focus Control that helps assist with 4K shooting that demands precise focusing, whether from single or remote operation. Canon's acclaimed Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology helps to expand the distance of the subject area to enable faster focus during 4K video recording. This also allows for highly accurate continuous AF and face detection AF when using EF lenses. For 4K video opportunities that call for precise focus accuracy that can't be checked on an HD monitor, users can also take advantage of the LCD Monitor LM-V1 (supplied with the EOS C200 camera), which provides intuitive touch focusing support to help filmmakers achieve sophisticated focusing even as a single operator.

In addition to these features, the Canon EOS C200 and Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras offer:

Over Sampling HD Processing*: enhances sensitivity and helps minimize noise
Wide DR Gamma: helps reduce overexposure by retaining continuity with a gamma curve
ISO 100-102400 and 54db gain: high quality in both low sensitivity and low-light environments

In the News / Cybernet Manufacturing launches 'World's First 4K UHD Medical Computer'
« Last post by donaldk on Wed June 07, 2017, 06:40:18 PM »
When reviewing projectors, particularly by Canon, as well as the odd LCD monitor, one might notice the term DICOM. Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine standardises the handling, storing, printing, and transmitting information in medical imaging. However that is always acompanied by an Asterix stating for non-clinical review only. The term used is DICOM Simulation Mode, that governs the grayscale mode, depending on environment. But it is only to be used in education or looking along with medical practioners.

However there are also a small number of display vendors that offer displays that are rated for actual clinical review appllications. Cybernet is one of of them . It has now launched what it claims to be the 'World's First 4K UHD Medical Computer'.
"Cybernet Manufacturing announces the introduction of its 4K ultra high definition, medical all-in-one touchscreen PC designed for surgical grade applications and for clinical review".

Cybernet Manufacturing Inc. is a leading manufacturer of medical all-in-one computers and tablets. It announces the launch of the world's first surgical grade all-in-one medical computer for use in clinical review and during surgeries. "The CyberMed NB24k is the world's first medical grade computer with a 4K UHD display", the company said in a prepared statement.

The 4K UHD in combination with the MVA (Multiple Viewing Angle) panel enables perfect visibility from all angles. The unit is EN60601-1 certified and comes standard with an antimicrobial surface protection housing.

"The [url-https://www.cybernetman.com/en/medical-computer-with-uhd-4k-display]CyberMed NB24k[/url] is built specifically for use in clinical review and during surgeries," said Ali Bagheri, Global Senior Vice President, Cybernet. "The CyberMed NB24k offers high definition images surgeons need for ultimate precision when making incisions, and fast response time so that all movements of the instruments are shown without delay. The use in ORs also calls for the multi-input capacity to connect cameras and other video devices, so the NB24k comes with HDMI input, HDMI output as well as capture card options."

The CyberMed NB24k comes with the powerful, Skylake 6th-gen Intel Core CPU. It is powered by three hot-swap batteries and is completely autonomous of electrical outlets. No need for a backup battery in the event of a power outage.

A revolutionary feature of this model is in its capacity to power external peripherals connected to it. The CyberMed NB24k has a convenient DC power output jack on the I/O coastline, which allows it to power barcode scanners, printers, card readers or other peripherals.

"The CyberMed NB24k is the only medical computer on the market that offers the unique feature of powering peripherals," said Ali Bagheri. "On top of that, it is antimicrobial, fanless, waterproof, and safe for near-patient use in sterile environments. The NB24k is an elegant – and one-of-a-kind – solution to many healthcare IT problems."
