With all of the new and progressive advancements within display technologies and changes within industry standards, Ultra High Definition(UHD), Wide Color Gamut(WCG), High Dynamic Range(HDR) just to name a few, makes it a confusing, yet exciting time for all AV enthusiasts and professionals alike. When it comes to video calibration, we have been utilizing the same standards for decades. The current legacy standards will not suffice in regards to new UHD/HDR displays and/or content moving forward.

 

Since current UHD/HDR test patterns are limited, I have created an entire suite of UHD/HDR-10 test patterns that not only adhere to new industry standards, they conform to the UHDA (UHD Alliance) standards and specs, UHD 3840x2160 resolution, Wide color Gamut, BT.2020, HDR10, 10-Bit, ST.2086 color spec and ST.2084 transfer function. This project follows the same idea behind my “Advanced Calibration Disc”, an attainable solution to calibrate and/or measure your new UHD/HDR display without having to spend thousands on a new UHD/HDR test pattern generator. I have created all new test patterns from the ground up, triplets that utilize the ST.2084 transfer function, precise RGB to YCbCr BT.2020 conversion, and H.265/HEVC encoding with the proper metadata tags so your HDR-10 enabled display can properly decipher these new test patterns. This project was also designed around a familiar layout, “Basic Setup Patterns”, “Advanced Setup Patterns”, and “Miscellaneous Patterns” which include full 5% and 10% window suites. I have also included workflows for CalMAN, ChromaPure, and HCFR calibration software. These HEVC encoded patterns are available in both .ts (Transport Stream)/.mp4 containers and a fully authored UltraHD Bluray disc.

 

The multi-media test patterns can be download and stored on a flash drive and/or an external hard drive for playback on any compatible UHD/HDR-10 enabled display or UHD Bluray player via USB. These test patterns have also been encoded separately into individual files for ease of use and flexibility.
