Video Clarity Launches ClearView 8.4

News Image
Video Clarity has announced the latest update to its ClearView range of video quality analysers and play/recorders.

With ClearView 8.4, the company's 4K and 8K systems provide new color-space-capable pictures, as well as support for high dynamic range (HDR), in line with ITU-R BT.2020. With these changes, the systems will show side-by-side 4K or 8K pictures in native ITU-R Rec. BT.2020 color space, and allow comparison of HDR video in that color space.

ClearView 8.4 will benefit both programme originators and manufacturers of encoding and digital video-processing products, all of which must be able to study the visual and perceptual differences that result from enhanced color space and HDR as they move from HD to UHD resolutions.

ClearView 8.4 provides users a way to judge HDR video sequences on the same monitor, eliminating potential setup and calibration differences that can occur when using two monitors to compare original to processed HDR pictures. In cases where a full picture comparison is required, ClearView 8.4 users can switch to dual output mode for exact sequencing of two comparative video sequences on two different monitors at the same resolution and frame rate.

"As the industry aspires to deliver 4K and, in time, 8K video, the trend is to apply advanced color-space functions to pictures that are produced at 4K or 8K resolutions because as UHD products and services develop, the delivery chain will need to provide these new capabilities," explained Blake Homan, president and founder of Video Clarity. "We've added these advanced functions to ClearView so that program originators and manufacturers can easily study the picture quality and performance of their products and services as they transition to higher resolutions and pixel depths. The aim, of course, is to provide a better viewing experience to audiences around the world."

ClearView 8.4 will be available with every new ClearView system at the end of March. Existing ClearView 4K and 8K users will be able to upgrade to ClearView 8.4. Active subscribers to the Video Clarity product-support and warranty program can update their systems at no extra charge. Users will be contacted by Video Clarity in relation to upgrade instructions.

ClearView 8.4 will be demonstrated by Video Clarity at NAB Show 2016, booth SU12413.
