When the HDfury Integral 4K60 is placed in the HDMI signal path between a non-HDR test pattern source and an HDR TV, the Integral can add HDR metadata to the standard test pattern source. This makes the test pattern source appear as an HDR video signal to the TV under test, switching the TV into HDR mode.

CalMAN simplifies control of both the non-HDR test pattern source and the Integral 4K60 with direct connection to both devices. CalMAN directly controls the Integral 4K60 to enable its HDR output metadata.

Or, if the Integral 4K60 has been supplemented with the optional AVTOPcontroller software, CalMAN can automatically control the Integral 4K60 through the AVTOPcontroller interface.

This setup guide assists you in setting up and using the HDfury Integral 4K60 and a non-HDR test pattern source with CalMAN to test and calibrate UHD TVs in their HDR modes.

Note: This guide refers to the original, now discontinued, HDFury Integral. Later models will not work.
