DisplayMate uses any Laptop or Desktop computer to generate specialized
proprietary test patterns
for setting up, adjusting, calibrating, and testing any type of display or
imaging device that can be connected directly or indirectly to a computer.
This includes all computer and video monitors, projectors, HDTVs,
mobile displays, color printers, and all types networked video.
DisplayMate supports all analog and digital displays, connections, and signals
including digital HDMI and DVI, Analog VGA and Component Video,
and all display technologies including LCD, Plasma, CRT, DLP, LCoS and OLED.
DisplayMate is designed to help
anyone (both novices with no technical knowledge as well as experts)
achieve the highest possible optimum image and picture quality.
Use it to improve and check on every aspect of display image and picture
such as image sharpness, geometry, resolution, contrast,
color and gray-scale accuracy, and image artifacts.

How DisplayMate Works:
DisplayMate works by presenting a sequential slide show of
specially designed very sensitive proprietary test pattern images.
Each test pattern has a single very specific function to perform.
You simply view them one at a time and follow the easy
step-by-step on-screen instructions, expert advice and guidance
that accompanies each test pattern, as shown on the left.
You make the adjustments interactively on-screen by using the
built-in hardware adjustment controls provided by the display manufacturer,
generally with a remote control or panel menu buttons.
The specialized DisplayMate test patterns are designed primarily for
visual adjustments by eye,
but many DisplayMate products also include proprietary test patterns
for use with measuring instruments if you have them.
The DisplayMate test patterns are automatically drawn real-time
for the true native resolution of each display by using advanced
mathematical equations, not by reconstituting a fixed set of previously
stored images as in most other calibration products.
With DisplayMate the result is a complete state-of-the-art optimization
with your monitor, projector and HDTV performing at its absolute best.
How Other Products Work:
Compare the above professional reviews for DisplayMate
to any other calibration product you are considering.
None will match or even come close to DisplayMate --
most are products produced by programmers who are
not display technology experts,
which have inaccurate generic test patterns and useless high-tech gimmicks.
Note that products which claim to perform an automatic calibration
using software profiles or perform their calibration
by using software driver adjustments will introduce lots of
color and gray-scale artifacts and decrease image quality.
The hardware adjustments recommended by DisplayMate increase rather than
decrease image quality and accuracy.
The inexpensive sensor pucks included with some products are not accurate,
especially with LCDs and produce incorrect results.
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 substantially more powerful and larger set
of innovative and proprietary test patterns, and costs substantially less.

from the DisplayMate ISF and Multimedia Editions.
All DisplayMate products include over 100 Test Patterns.
Most of the time you will need only a small number,
but the large library of test patterns will help you deal with any display issue
or problem that may arise.

To use DisplayMate to calibrate your HDTV you'll need to
connect it to a Windows PC. Fortunately, that's now pretty easy.
Once you do this your HDTV will show your Windows Desktop and
can then function as a giant PC Monitor
so you can watch all of your applications on the HDTV.
