The Standard for Commercial and Research Applications:
DisplayMate is an industry standard that has been widely used for judging
displays at major international industry events such as the world renown
INFOCOMM Projection Shoot-Out and the SID Display Technology
Showcase. INFOCOMM is the world's largest commercial exhibition
of large screen display technology and SID, the Society for
Information Display, produces the world's leading conference and exhibition
for research in display technology. DisplayMate is proud to be
recognized as a standard by both the commercial and research
areas of the display industry.
The Standard in Print and on the Web:
DisplayMate is the editorial standard used by over 200 computer and
video publications in 50 countries
for their editorial testing and lab reviews of video hardware.
If you've ever read a review about a monitor or projector,
the editors were most likely using DisplayMate.
The Most Sensitive and Revealing Test Patterns:
DisplayMate's success is the result of developing the most challenging
and sensitive test patterns in existence for displays.
Unlike traditional test pattern generators that produce a small number of
bland, generic, multi-purpose test patterns that were developed primarily
in the 1950s, DisplayMate pioneered the development of proprietary,
special purpose analytical test patterns that individually examine
each display parameter at the highest possible sensitivity.
Each test pattern is carefully fine-tuned for the maximum possible effect and
a set of such patterns is viewed in a programmed sequence.
The result is that DisplayMate produces the most powerful and revealing
test patterns. They show effects and differences between displays that
go unnoticed using all other methods.
That is the reason why DisplayMate has become the standard for evaluating
image and picture quality and why journalists depend on it for producing
the best reviews and comparisons.
Scientific Display Analysis and Advanced Mathematical Technology:
All of DisplayMate's test patterns are drawn on-screen real-time from a set of
scale-free mathematical equations so they produce exact and accurate
test patterns for any display resolution and any screen aspect ratio from
128x128 for tiny mobile displays up through 4100x4100 for large Digital Cinemas.
By using mathematical equations DisplayMate is able to produce its
entire library of 500+ test patterns very efficiently because
all of the equations take less than 1 Megabyte of memory,
which is substantially less than the reconstituted fixed set of stored
test patterns used by other products.
A Key Role in Improving Display Quality Since 1991:
As a result of DisplayMate's widespread use for display testing and
evaluation, a product's success often depends on how well it performs
with DisplayMate's test patterns.
In response, manufacturers have learned to improve the design
of their displays so as to perform better with DisplayMate.
And in turn, DisplayMate's test patterns have continually
increased in difficulty, raising the bar with each new DisplayMate Edition.
The result is that DisplayMate has played a key role in improving
display quality for the consumer since the first product was launched in 1991.
Manufacturer's Friend or Foe?
At first, most manufacturers responded quite negatively to the introduction
of DisplayMate. It made every display look less than perfect and provided
consumers with an inexpensive and powerful tool to evaluate display products.
But DisplayMate also made it possible to clearly see the differences between
displays, so it became much easier to differentiate the good and bad displays.
The result has been that manufacturers of high quality products have actually
promoted the use of DisplayMate as a sales and marketing tool, while the
manufacturers of poorly performing displays have attempted to suppress its use.
As a result there are many custom versions of DisplayMate that are co-branded
and distributed by leading manufacturers in order to promote the excellence
in the image and picture quality of their products.
Educational Products for Novices and Experts:
The company has a principal interest in computer education.
DisplayMate includes product lines for computer and display novices in addition
to cutting-edge state-of-the art products for advanced professional users.
The entry-level products are actually expert systems that are designed to

The company was founded in 1984 as Cactus Computers Inc, a computer education
and training company for major banks, brokerage houses and Fortune 100
companies in the New York metropolitan area.
In 1989 the company established a new division, called SONERA Technologies,
in order to begin the development of the world's first computer display
utility. The product launched in May 1991 and received immediate widespread
recognition and awards, including a Best of Show award at COMDEX, the
computer industry's leading trade show and exposition.
The company shared the awards stage with Microsoft,
which also won a Best of Show award for Windows.
DisplayMate has consistently received widespread praise from the top display
and video industry organizations, publications and professionals.
