QUBYX Is Going To Team Up With Display Manufacturers To Increase The Value Of Image Reproduction Hardware

May 31, 2016

The real requirement for monitor calibration is actually very obvious, as without it you will never be able to see images as they were intended. This is true for both, TV and computer displays used for different purposes, either for professional or home consumer needs.

Nowadays most displays are provided with factory calibration. Unfortunately the monitors almost never reproduce colors exactly the same, even if they are identical brands and models. This can be explained by the fact that even the same models can be manufactured in different facilities and not in the same way. In addition, despite of being factory calibrated, displays tend to change over time, which influences the accuracy of the image reproduction.

Beyond this, many TV and computer displays are provided with different ‘professional’ calibration pre-sets, which are apparently aimed to improve and adjust image quality. In fact such settings shouldn’t be considered as the accurate ones.

A lot of display manufacturers offer calibration software and a puck packaged with the display to let a user to perform software calibration if he wants to. Software calibration works by modifying the colors via the computer graphics board and loading those colors every time after booting up into your operating system.

But if you are serious about calibration, the best options for you are to use a display’s LUT (Look Up Table) or 3D LUT. Hardware calibration generates a Look-Up Table that is written into the monitor to map all the colors. Brightness, contrast and color levels will be automatically adjusted by the display through calibration software. Compared to software, hardware calibration (so called ‘internal’ calibration) is more accurate, faster and easier.

Open new markets and expand existing ones

Medical imaging along with geospatial, photography, design and prepress are the major markets, utilizing displays and projectors. These markets are growing rapidly, but they are also becoming more demanding day by day. Our qualified team of developers will help monitor manufacturers create products with added value, increasing the demand for them. With more than 15 years of experience in developing high-end display calibration and profiling solutions for our customers, we do know how to meet the requirements of imaging industries. What benefits we offer for hardware manufacturers?

  • Integration of your systems (displays) with internal LUT into the display calibration software PerfectLum and our specialised support. Find out more about PerfectLum here.
  • Help in improving your firmware for the support of internal LUT. This includes capability of simultaneous loading of two and more different calibrations (e.g a user can calibrate his monitor for different viewing conditions and have, for example, an AdobeRGB calibration and an sRGB calibration which can be quickly applied when needed). Calibration results will be saved inside the display and can be applied even on other PCs without any software installation.
  • Delivery of service at a mutually agreeable time.

Having a capability in performing ‘internal’ calibration, your hardware will become a clear winner on the imaging market. We have worked on great projects for some big name clients as Dell Inc., Canon Inc., Diva Laboratories Ltd., Goomedi Laboratories Ltd., Lumimed, Kostec. Co, Ltd., Sony Corporation, Rein Medical GmbH, Olorin AB, SuperSonic Imagine and others.

Qubyx Announces the Launch of the Sensor Module – MicroEye

May 6, 2015


Wilmington, DE , April 3, 2015 –
QUBYX Software Technologies, the developer of display calibration and quality assurance software solutions, has announced the launch of the QUBYX Sensor Module, a colorimeter and luminance meter for displays. Compact, extremely accurate and easily integrated device will keep color and brightness stable for the life of a display.

Despite of being factory calibrated, displays tend to change over time, which influences the accuracy of the image reproduction. When color and luminance reproduction counts, like in the medical imaging industry, calibration becomes even more critical. External measuring devices are not the best option, as these need to be handled manually. That is why QUBYX has developed a small form factor colorimeter that can be effortlessly integrated into any display or projector. The sensor constantly monitors and adjusts brightness and color to maintain a perfect picture.

Ensuring full support of QUBYX software, the sensor can calibrate the display to the needs of medical, defence, prepress, creative and other industries. In addition, the sensor auto-calibrates the display in the background, without interrupting the workflow.

“Due to our individual approach to each manufacturer and attention to his specific requirements, the embedded sensor module works seamlessly with any display providing continuous image quality at all times.” – says Marc Leppla, director of QUBYX. “If you want to add more value to your product, we believe that we have an ideal solution for you.”

ABOUT QUBYX

QUBYX is a manufacturer developing highly accurate and easy-to-use products for medical imaging, design, photography, prepress and other industries relying on image quality.

Qubyx Offers Opportunities for Mac OS Users

May 6, 2015

The amount of people using Mac OS in medical imaging is constantly growing. For instance, among approximately 25,000 physicians—about one third of them radiologists—are viewing medical images on Apple’s Macintosh computers. The growing interest in Macs in radiology mirrors what’s happening with Macs in general2

A lot of hospitals which implemented Mac OS-based systems are ready to share their experience, for instance Mayo Clinic, Planète Ortho, RehabCare, Universitätsklinik Mannheim and many more3.

With these successful examples and increasing number of home offices it is easy to predict even higher rates of using Mac OS in the nearest future. So, the issue of image quality, which was not so long ago burning for Windows users working in the field of medical imaging, has now become vital for Mac users, too.

If you have to rely on exceptional image quality, your hardware should be regularly tested (bi-weekly, quarterly or annually) to make sure its performance still maintains the necessary level of image quality.The QA procedure can include, but is not limited to:

- acceptance testing and other documentation as appropriate;

- DICOM Grayscale Standard Display Function (GSDF) verification;

- quantitative assessment of the brightness (luminance);

<p”>- quantitative determination of the luminance ratio etc4

With these factors in mind, our developers created a powerful, yet simple-to-use solution which completely takes the issue of reliable QA for Macintosh OS off the table.

One of the most effective ways to achieve an outstanding level of image quality is to calibrate and then regularly verify the display. QUBYX is pleased to present PerfectLum, a calibration and verification software, which provides such a level of quality that it is trusted by healthcare professionals worldwide:PennMedicine the University of Pennsylvania Health System, USA; UMM Universitätsklink Mannheim Heidelberg, Germany; Hamad Medical Corporation, Qatar; Uppsala Hospital, Sweden; University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA; University of Arizona, USA and many others.

Here are some reasons to be considered by Mac users:

1. PerfectLum performs acceptance and constancy tests to verify that the display conforms to NEMA DICOM part 14 GSDF, AAPM TG18, DIN 6868-57, JESRA X-0093 and IEC 62563-1 and other standards.

2. The software is very user-friendly – it was created based on a simple wizard-driven approach, so you’ll be guided through all the steps.

3. PerfectLum automatically schedules the tests to be performed in the future and reminds the user about them on the day the tests are due.

4. You can easily perform calibration, verification, and quality assurance tests from a single location using PerfectLum Remote Management. A notifier on the machine will remind the user to perform the task when it is due.

5. PerfectLum provides proof of maintenance for all your displays – you can export the report as a pdf document, print, and file it.
