Why use a test pattern generator? Why not use a test disc for calibration?
There are two reasons to use a high-quality test pattern generator:
Accuracy: Thousands of hours of engineering effort has gone into creating the AccuPel line of generators all for the purpose of creating test patterns of the highest possible quality. All professional calibrators should use an external video test pattern generator, such as the AccuPel.
Speed: Each AccuPel ships with a remote control that allows very rapid access to any test pattern. More importantly, the AccuPel interfaces a PC and video calibration software, such as ChromaPure, via USB. This allows the software to control the AccuPel automatically. This means that whenever the user takes a measurement from the software, the AccuPel first provides the necessary test pattern without further user invention. If you have not used automation with your calibration sessions, you cannot imagine how much faster the process flows and how much easier the calibration procedures become.
Pattern generators are what the pro's use. Professionals start by calibrating just the display, as accurately as they can get it. A pattern generator like the AccuPel DVG-5000 would be used, which they know they can trust. A professional calibrator works backwards up the chain and calibrate each input separately. If the DVD or Blu-ray player is skewed, they'll want to set a mode on the display that compensates for it, but they won't want to use that mode when, say, cable TV is being watched.
Professionals know that they have no idea what the customer’s DVD or Blu-ray player is putting out, but they know they can trust their pattern generator. If you paid a professional to come calibrate your home theater, they would bring in a pattern generator like the AccuPel DVG-5000. Now you can do that too, at a price that is a fraction of the cost of some competing pattern generators.
Why choose AccuPel?
There are four reasons to prefer an AccuPel over other pattern generators:
Quality: The quality of the engineering that has gone into the AccuPel line of video test pattern generators is unsurpassed.
Ease-of-use: The DVG-5000 is remarkably light-weight and small. Also, each generator ships with its own remote control. This is a feature that test pattern generators that cost thousands of dollars more do not provide.
Cost: AccuPel's have always been a labour of love by a few dedicated and hugely talented individuals. Given the low overhead, it has always been priced at a level lower than other similar products on the market. The DVG-5000 will continue and enhance that tradition with an MSRP even lower than previous models.
The DVG-5000 offers full support for all major 3D formats. The full selection of test patterns available in the standard mode are also available in the 3D mode. In addition to 3D test patterns, the DVG-5000 also provides a special interactive 3D crosstalk test pattern.
Until the DVG-5000, AccuPels have always used DVI for digital signal output. Although the units fully supported digital YCbCr output, displays would generally default to RGB, rendering the YCbCr signal unusable. With an HDMI emitter chip that communicates to the display the type of signal being transmitted, full YCbCr functionality is now fully achieved.
