SpectraCal Becomes First Software Company to Provide Direct-Load 3D LUT Capabilities for Reference-Grade Monitors

(Seattle, WA) – February 4, 2014 – SpectraCal, Inc. – the world’s leading provider of display calibration software – announced today new 3D LUT technology for a select lineup of monitors available with the latest release of their software, CalMAN 5.3.

With this new technology, 3D LUT calibrations are loaded directly from CalMAN to the device on which the software is running, eliminating the need to store and load LUT files with intermediary software.

SpectraCal has played a significant role in the advancement of 3D LUT technology over the past several years, especially in the broadcast, production, and post-production industries, where 3D LUTs have only recently begun to be used for calibrations.

While SpectraCal’s display calibration software, CalMAN, has included 3D LUT capabilities for some time, the latest version of the software will be the first capable of loading those LUTs directly to monitors without the use of secondary software. The list of supported devices for the direct-load LUTs currently includes EIZO ColorEdge and TVLogic XVM, and is expected to grow.

SpectraCal is the worldwide leader in image fidelity solutions.  SpectraCal provides everything needed for calibrating video displays in the broadcast, production, post-production, commercial A/V, and home theater industries.  SpectraCal’s flagship product, CalMAN, is the mostly widely used video calibration software in the world.  Please visit or call (206) 466-2129 for more information.
