It walks you through a set of patterns that lets you effectively identify and compensate for five improper adjustments that may be present in your HDMI monitor – true 1:1 pixel representation, white and black level, white point, gamma response, and hue and chroma.

Note: To take full advantage of the Matrox HDMI Calibration Utility, your HDMI monitor/television must support an HDMI input resolution of 1920×1080 and 1:1 pixel mapping (aspect ratio of 1:1) on the HDMI input.

Apr 12, 2010 From NAB 2010: Adobe CS5 Mercury Playback and Matrox RT

More : Adobe · Matrox Video · News/Press Releases · Software · · · · · · ·

NAB, something I have had a love-hate relationship with for many, many years.  This year promised to be the year of stereoscopic production, and so far it is! 

This post however is going to center around our every day production needs – and what has become one of the most anticipated software releases at this year’s conference – Adobe CS5!  I have to say, thus far,  it looks fantastic!  I wanted to spend a few moments sharing some thoughts on one of the big features that many people have been waiting for: The Mercury Playback Engine, and what it really means, and what companies like Matrox are doing to work with Adobe.

If you don’t already know, the Mercury playback engine is designed around technology that combines the power of the GPU, with the CPU.  In this case, an Nvidia based card with CUDA.  The demonstrations at Adobe’s booth and others are all shown on top-of-the-line workstations (HPz800 and 8 or 12 core machines), with Nvidia 5800 graphics cards ($2000+) of course to put the Adobe Cs5 products in the best light possible.  Understandable, but not something many of you might have just sitting around at the moment!  I was privy to see a Mercury demo at a Matrox meeting though, when done on a quad core workstation, with an Nvidia 4800 card ($1500) to see why Matrox was still relevant.  Ok, I’m listening.
