The new color processor - 'LogiColor' Engine

An improved color management system is utilized by the LUM-310X-CI for the best color reproduction and control. The Xilinx FPGA based ‘LogiColor’ engine quickly processes and converts 10-bit nonlinear YCC video signals into a 24-bit linear RGB color space (72-bits per pixel). This allows for the most accurate color reproduction, especially in mid-tones as well as details in the highlights and shadows.

LUM_310X_CI overview 03

The 'LogiColor' engine can navigate preset modes 5 times faster, and is able to provide a more accurate control over parameters such as luminance, color temperatures, EOTFs (gamma) and color gamuts.


* Color Standard Preset (HD, UHD, DCI, PQ, PQ2, HLG + User Mode: 1~6)
* Video Range (Narrow 100%, Narrow 109%, Full)
* Display Luminance (+ Clipping Level)
* SDR & HDR EOTF (Gamma 2.4, 2.6, 2.8 + BT. 2100 PQ & HLG)

Display Panel Calibration

'LogiColor' uses a universal color space that covers the entire BT.2020 standard. In order to fully utilize the display panel’s color gamut, a 1D and 3D LUT are created during the calibration process to compensate for the non-linearity of the panel installed in the monitor. The colors outside of the monitor’s gamut are smoothly mapped onto the surface of the gamut while preserving the original hue.

LUM_310X_CI overview 04

Advanced 3D LUT Interpolation

A new interpolation algorithm has been introduced to the LUM-310X-CI. While maintaining the same 17x17x17 grid structure of the 3D LUT, the Triangular pyramid Interpolation (Tetrahedral Interpolation) which is used in the IS-mini, has now been implemented into TVLogic LUM-series monitors. With this algorithm, the accuracy of the color reproduction is equal to or better than 33x33x33 grid 3D LUT with cubic interpolation.

LUM_310X_CI overview 05

Best-in-Class Gamut Mapping Algorithm

Any (BT.2020) colors outside of the monitor’s gamut (color reproduction range) are smoothly mapped onto its gamut. This allows for the brightness/saturation to be changed while preserving the original hue of the (BT.2020) colors that fall outside of the monitor’s gamut.

(*A ‘Native Mode’ is available to view all the colors proportionally scaled inside the monitor’s gamut.)   LEARN MORE

True HDR

EBU Tech. 3320 (version 4.1) is the best reference for the color reproduction requirements of professional HDR monitors. According to this document, a professional grade HDR monitor is able to reproduce high dynamic range of luminance: 0.005 – 1,000 nits for Grade 1 HDR, 0.01 – 600 nit for Grade 2 HDR, and 0.02 – 500 nit for Grade 3 HDR.

Grade 1 and Grade 2 HDR monitors must have a wide color gamut that covers more than 60% of the BT.2020 and 100% of the BT.709 color gamut. Color reproduction for grayscale and EBU test colors must also be at tight tolerance.
True HDR
Only LUM-310X (max 1,000nit with dual layer LCD system) and LUM-310R (peak 2,000nit w/ local dimming back-light system) are utilizing the specially designed LCD panel with high dynamic (luminance) range, and are perfectly calibrated to meet all the criteria above. In this sense, we are proud to define LUM-310X and 310R as the 'True HDR Monitor'.

And other monitors with HDR-related function but within limited dynamic range are defined as 'HDR Emulation Monitor' in TVLogic.

We have many other professional monitors which support HDR standard of BT.2020 color gamut and PQ/HLG EOTFs. But, unfortunately, they can not meet all of the requirements above, so we call these monitors as 'HDR Emulation Monitor'. We will share more information on our website to explain on the things to be considered when you use these monitors for HDR contents. Please visit 'LogiColor' supported monitors web site.

※ Note: Some manufacturers are advertising their monitors with HDR EOTF and some other related function to be HDR monitors, but in TVLogic, this sort of monitors are defined as HDR Emulation Monitors, which can be compared with 'True HDR monitors' with high dynamic (luminance) range.

Zero Video Latency for 4K - 'DRC' technology

LUM-series monitors (-CI version) are upgraded for faster video processing. An innovative DRC (Dynamic RAM Control) technology was introduced to minimize the internal video delay according to the input video format. Now the internal video processing time is for 2 ~ 4 times faster for 4K/24p~30p and HD input, and about 200 times faster with almost ZERO latency (0.2-frame delay) for 4K/60p and 4K/50p video that is input through single link 12G-SDI. (This upgrade is available with firmware update. Please contact your local dealer or download from TVLogic website)

SDR Super White

In SDR and HDR modes (HD, UHD, PQ, HLG), the default video range is 'Narrow 100' (64 ~ 940) while in DCI mode, 'Full' (4~1019). You can also choose 'Narrow 109' for SDR which enables to reproduce super white up to 120nit, which means you can confirm the highlight details above 100% without clipping if the input signal carries any information above 100%.
SDR Super White

PQ EETF

EETF (Electro-Electro Transfer Function) is useful when the display has limited luminance verses the peak luminance of the PQ contents. When the EETF is set to 'ON', the highlights over 1,000nit range are compressed into 900~1,000nit range LUM-310X-CI. This mode helps to confirm above monitor maximum brightness colors details. Of course, the monitor can not reproduce correct brightness, but under this setting, the detail of the very bright objects can be confirmed, shading or existence of clipping.
PQ EETF

HLG System Gamma (1.2 / Auto)

HLG System Gamma varies according to the Peak Luminance of the display. If the HLG system gamma is set to ‘AUTO’, the system gamma will change according to the (clipping) luminance level. With the LUM-310X-CI, entering User mode will allow you to set the luminance level to ‘400 nit’ with a system gamma level of 1.2 to simulate how HLG will look in a monitor with a max luminance of 400 nit.
HLG System Gamma (1.2 / Auto)

Gamut Warning

When using the monitor in HDR mode of BT.2020 color space, colors that are outside of the monitor’s color gamut may be mapped onto the surface of the supported color scope with reduced saturation/brightness, while preserving the same color hue. Gamut warning function will show these mapped colors.
Gamut Warning

Native Mode

In Native mode, the monitor will tentatively skip signal processing in order to reflect all the details in the signal. Color accuracy will be lost as this mode is used only for confirming the existence of the signal information.
