And unlike all other setup, calibration and test products,
DisplayMate automatically runs
at the true native resolution of any display, projector or HDTV,
even for non-standard resolutions like 1366 x 768.
In fact, the Multimedia Edition will run at
ANY Resolution up through 4096 x 4096.
So when full Digital Cinema 4096 x 2160
becomes available you'll be ready to use it with DisplayMate.
There are no preset Resolutions and Aspect Ratios or
test patterns reconstituted from fixed stored bitmaps.
DisplayMate is instead the only product that uses advanced state-of-the-art
scale-free mathematical equations to generate the test patterns real-time
for your exact display so they are extremely precise and accurate.
DisplayMate Multimedia Edition
is the most advanced and powerful version of DisplayMate ever,
with lots of proprietary and highly innovative suites of test patterns for
setting up, tuning-up, calibrating, testing,
evaluating, diagnosing, and analyzing
CRTs, analog and digital LCD, Plasma, DLP, LCoS, and SXRD
monitors and projectors, microdisplays, video boards, color printers,
TVs and HDTVs, NTSC/PAL Television encoders and decoders, and more.
A Small Sample of Color and Gray Scale Test Patterns from the DisplayMate Multimedia Edition
The Multimedia Edition supports digital DVI and HDMI
in addition to analog VGA, Component Video, S-Video and Composite Video.
Connect to almost any monitor, projector or HDTV.
There are many sets of test patterns designed for use with
like Spectroradiometers, Color Analyzers, Photometers,
Waveform Monitors, and Oscilloscopes.
Plus there is a
Command Script Processor
for running and producing
fully automated custom test suites, demos and shows.
The Multimedia Edition is the product now used by most computer
and video magazines for Editorial Testing and Lab Reviews of video hardware.
When you puchase DisplayMate Multimedia Edition you will have
the most sensitive and powerful display testing
and evaluation tool available worldwide.
Run DisplayMate from your Laptop
and you have a very powerful and inexpensive
portable digital display laboratory.
Don't spend thousands of dollars for test signal generators that have a small
set of outdated 30-year old generic test patterns,
when DisplayMate offers a much larger and more powerful set of innovative and
proprietary test patterns, and costs substantially less.
Virtually all of the latest digital HDTVs, monitors, and projectors now
connect automatically to any Windows 7, Vista or XP PC with DVI or HDMI outputs,
so you can use DisplayMate to work on any digital display or
digital HDTV technology.
