COVID-19: the government of Quebec is shutting down non-essential businesses till April 13. Therefore, our lab is temporarily closed and we can't test new products. In the meantime, we will continue to update articles from home.
Updated

Test Bench 1.4
Changelog

See previous 1.3 changelog.

Test Changes

  • Created 8k Box to score upscaling performance of 8k TVs.
  • Calculated Direct Reflections are now shown.
  • Added tests for Freesync and HDMI Forum VRR

Score and Weight Changes

  • Changed reflection scoring to no longer “double count” the Indirect Reflections.
  • TVs with Burn-In Risk now scores a 2 instead of a 1.
  • Motion Interpolation is no longer scored. The previous score was based off which refresh rates it supported, which isn’t a good indicator for how well it interpolates motion. 
  • Category scores are no longer weighted in the usage scores.
  • Minor changes made to the usage scores, to account for motion interpolation and categories no longer being scored.

Review Changes

  • The Remote App box has been removed. Remote app is now in the Remote box.
  • The Temperature box has been removed.

81 TVs Updated
