    Happy New Year..

    Here’s hoping 2016 brings much more joy and better health and a sustainable business to fellow THX video calibrators…

    That said, we seem to be at the cusp of another new trend of standards, and in essence more chance of confusing the consumer and calibrators worldwide.

    Is there a consensus on how much the standards are defined? Are we ready to start calibrating to these standards? Will some of these be shared with us so we can at least start to educate the public on what needs to be done for their new fangled displays and how it should display the new content?

    I hope this thread will serve as a info sharing or ideas bouncing thread before the new specs and standards are ratified.

    I guess, I am also looking to see what gear that I have is now close to obsolete (ie, meters, pattern generators etc) and what needs to be done next…

    Hope to see some discussions or fact correction…I’m really not sure how much is out there.

    Thanks and hv a great new year ahead.

    Thanks for the sentiments for the new year. The fundamental key to getting more out of any endeavor is to put more into it. We all have our limits in time and financial resources. However, I encourage anyone who is serious about video standards and best practices to become a member of SMPTE. The benefits are detailed at their smpte.org web site. An “Individual-Active-Professional” membership is $145.00 per year. A great way to stay ahead of the progress in developing new technologies and standards is via the monthly SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal and regular e-mail updates from the organization. We all owe them at least a debt of gratitude for their decades of volunteer work in our industry.

    Best regards and beautiful pictures,

    I have done this in the past when I’ve encountered info from SMPTE that I thought would benefit this community. However, in most cases the info is too substantial to just post quotations from technical articles. Usually, I’ll refer folks to the document available from the SMPTE store. The documents are discounted to SMPTE members. There are also online video presentations available to members at no charge. SMPTE is a non-profit trade association which gets its operating funds from donations, ad revenue, membership fees, and the sale of technical documents generated by its standards committees and individual authors.
