The Videoforge is a Calman re-branded signal generator from half the Murideo Fox & Hound pair, which uses a cut-down version of the Murideo SIX-G firmware.
The VideoForge is rather limited, and not really a viable alternative to a SIX-G, but means a Calman user looking to trade-up to ColourSpace can continue to use hardware they have already paid for...
- ColourSpace Integration
- Closed Loop Profiling
- TPG Operation
- Videoforge v1.13 firmware
Videoforge operation and function is controlled via the Hardware Options menu, accessed via the Profiling window.
- Connect the Videoforge to the display to be profiled via a HDMI cable as required
- Connect to the ColourSpace PC via a USB cable, and start ColourSpace
- Set the desired set-up options via the Settings menu, as required
- Open a ColourSpace Profiling window, select Hardware Options, and select Videoforge from the Hardware drop-down list
- Select the correct Serial Port port for connection, and select Connect
- Using the Calibration Patches option select the desired patch size to use for profiling
(Custom patch settings are defined via the Videoforge Options window - Automatic uses the patch settings defined within the ColourSpace Settings window, or else the closest available patch settings)
- The Videoforge Options menu allows any of the additional Videoforge settings to be configured as required, for HDR, etc.
As soon as a Calibration Patches selection is made the output of the Videoforge will display the patch colour as defined within the ColourSpace Measure and Characterisation menus.
As user operation is fundamentally the same as the Murideo SIX-G, due to using a subset of the same firmware (which is how ColourSpace controls the Videoforge), further operation information ca be found on the SIX-G user guide.
