WHAT WE TEST
THX engineers complete hundreds of different scientifically-formulated tests to ensure the highest audio-visual standards possible.
UPSCALING / MOTION PROCESSING
HD to UltraHD upscaling can create image artifacts which are visible when there is on-screen movement. We ensure 4K displays preserve the integrity of original content while presenting an unparalleled level of detail.
We test to ensure all display images that are accurate to the original source, and all primary and blended colors are reproduced exactly as they were in the studio.
Not all display panels are uniformly backlit. To ensure consistent image quality across the entire screen, THX Certified TVs are tested for light leakage and hot spots to confirm that the edges of the image are not washed out.
Our 400+ THX LAB TESTS confirm the display delivers accurate images and pristine video performance in every frame. Specifically:
ACCURATE COLOR REPRODUCTION
Tested to make sure images match the color, luminance, blacks and gamma found in the filmmaker’s studio
THX Certification improves de-interlacing and jaggies, ensuring sharp HD and UltraHD images with a previously unseen level of clarity
