Calman 2021 R2 also features separated UPRtek and Gamma Scientific meter selections in its UI and improved the loading of reports to generate automatically on load across all license levels.

Following the launch of Portrait Displays’ Aurora Color Engine on the initial release of Calman 2021, color professionals have been raving about the technology’s innovative features. The Aurora Color Engine has been built from the ground up by implementing the latest in color science research to use next generation Unity Grayscale Technology for 3D neutral spline bypass when using a 1D LUT and 3D LUT for calibration and ultimately reduces or eliminates posterization and banding.

“Before the introduction of the Aurora Color Engine, color professionals ran into frustrations with unstable builds and 3D LUT calibrations causing banding and macro-blocking artifacts,” explained Fabio Elia, reviewer with 4K Filme DE. “We had the opportunity to test the new functions of Calman 2021 and found that Portrait Displays’ newly redesigned color engine provided a superior 3D LUT quality, thus solving those issues.”
