New Dolby Vision Format Support for Metadata Insertion and Playback Comparison Testing
Campbell, California – February. 1, 2021 – Today Video Clarity announced a new 4K Player-Recorder product feature and interface option for testing Dolby Vision content requiring dynamic HDMI metadata insertion.
This new test application is for high bit rate or contribution version content being compared to encoded versions such as something that was MPEG encoded and possibly converted to a wide color gamut such as HLG for broadcast. For this application a playback comparison of two fully uncompressed sequences via HDMI 2.0 outputs is required. This is so that the encoded files can be qualified versus the original to see that the encoder, transcoder, or file process applies Dolby Vision metadata properly for content displayed on a Dolby Vision compatible TV panel.
The specific application of this solution is for live encoded HEVC distribution file content saved as files to be imported with the ClearView Importer for Dolby Vision format subjective play comparison with reference version imported files for synchronized playback.
- Television network evaluation of correct color and Dolby Vision metadata application to encoded content applied to various formats for distribution.
- Encoder manufacturer QA of product versions supporting Dolby Vision dynamic metadata insertion.
Recommended with this license is a second CV-SDI-IO-12G interface option for all ClearView Extreme and ClearView Player 4K 3RU systems to apply a comparison playback using two HDMI 2.0 outputs.
