I’ve recently received Murideo’s new Prisma Video Processor for review. It supports 3D Cube look-up tables which can contain up to 10,000 color-correction points for the most precise video calibration possible.
Most of the displays I review include calibration options like two-point grayscale adjustment, color management, and sometimes even a gamma curve editor. But these solutions always require some sort of compromise. Controls interact and perfect grayscale may mean sacrificing gamma accuracy or even contrast. What if there were a better way?
The Prisma Video Processor interfaces with CalMAN to provide an automated calibration solution for any video signal chain. Once installed, you simply connect it to a network, plug a meter into your laptop and fire up the auto-cal routine. In a couple of hours, you’ll have created a high-resolution look-up table that takes color accuracy to whole new level.
The Prisma is a single-source product so it only works for one player and one display. But unlike competing video processors, it doesn’t cost thousands of dollars. $999 will get some of the best color you’ve ever seen and a slick image enhancement feature called PrismaVue.
I’ll be working with the Prisma in my reference theater in hopes of achieving truly spectacular calibration results. Watch this space for my full review!
