New Video Wall Platform Features the Industry's First and Only Factory Calibration Process that Delivers Out-of-the-Box Pixel to Pixel Color Uniformity
MAHWAH, NJ-June 2,2015
Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC), expands its PN-V video wall series with the launch of its first 55" Class (54.6" diagonal) PN-V551 LED Ultra-Slim Bezel professional monitor. With a bezel-to-bezel width of just 3.5mm, the PN-V551 features Sharp's Uniform Color Calibration Technology (UCCT), the industry's first and only factory calibration process that delivers out-of-the box pixel to pixel color uniformity between multiple video wall monitors - encompassing chromatic intensity, luminance, and hue.How Sharp's UCCT Ensures Uniformity of Color and Brightness
- A 3D 'pixel to pixel' MURA correction is performed on the factory production line using SHARP UCCT software (Uniform Color Calibration Technology). Using the very accurate L*ab methodology, all chromatic, luminance and hue values are calculated to remove any MURA impurity from the entire display screen area achieving a consistent uniformity of white and all colors across each display from screen edge to center, and between all displays across the entire video wall.
- This advanced MURA correction process is eventually saved onto a unique combination of separate Look Up Tables (LUT) on board every PN-V551 display, (i.e. known as "hardware calibration"), permanently saving and applying all correction data to obtain a consistent and uniform color rendering across each display from screen edge to center, and between all displays across the entire video wall, regardless of any input signal the display is fed from.
- In addition to UCCT MURA correction, Sharp's factory calibration process adjusts the white point and colors to a pre-defined common temperature target across each display from screen edge to center, and between all displays across the entire video wall.
"Recognizing the difficulty installers face performing color calibration with video wall displays, Sharp is proud to launch a new 55" Class video wall platform offering incredible out-of-box color and brightness uniformity," said Mike Marusic, senior vice president, Marketing and Operations, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. "With UCCT, Sharp has taken the guesswork out of laborious and time consuming software calibrations, ensuring a superb picture every time."
