WHAT WE TEST
THX Certified TVs undergo over 400 individual tests to ensure color, tone and images reproduce the director’s intentions accurately in stunning picture quality.
Displays are tested to ensure all images match the color, luminance, blacks and gamma found in 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.
The THX Certification process improves de-interlacing and jaggies, ensuring sharp HD and UltraHD images with a previously unseen level of clarity.
HD to UltraHD upscaling can create image artifacts which are visible when there is on-screen movement. THX Certified 4K displays preserve the integrity of original content while presenting an unparalleled level of detail.
