Viewing Environment Solutions Are Receiving Attention

Industry experts using their Ideal -Lume Pro model also include: the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST); the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF); Industrial Light and Magic (ILM); THX, Ltd.; Universal Studios; professional video display reviewers; among others.

CinemaQuest, Inc. has developed products and services that address many requirements of ideal viewing environment characteristics. Their research and development has focused on standards and recommendations specified by: the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE); the International Organization for Standardization (ISO); and the International Commission on Illumination (CIE). Professionals and consumers are recognizing the benefits of tailoring their viewing environment to enhance the pictures produced by high performance imaging devices. The photography, publishing, graphic arts and electronic entertainment industries are increasingly focusing upon digital display performance criteria and the associated environment.

The home theater community is becoming increasingly aware of the importance of viewing environment conditions and their impact upon image quality and viewer perception. Today`s DTV `revolution` along with HDTV have served to increase consumer interest in what constitutes superlative television pictures.

Custom home theater designers and their clients are becoming more knowledgeable of and concerned with the impact of room acoustics upon sound system performance. Room conditions can also potentially compromise the appearance of video displays. Lighting and interior decor will either preserve or contaminate image quality and the observer`s perception of the display. Eye strain, viewer fatigue, the perception of color, black level and detail are all affected by room conditions. The diligent efforts of cinematographers and film -to -video transfer colorists can be rendered ineffective by improperly designed viewing environments.

CinemaQuest, Inc. provides consulting services for designers and consumers interested in ensuring their viewing environments conform to recommended practice. Their web site offers contact information, unique products and reference solutions for discerning users of high performance TVs and computer displays: www.cinemaquestinc.com .
