This new Blu-ray test disk is exactly what one would need as far as measuring just how efficient your audio and video setup really is. Thanks to Marvell, this new benchmarking tool should be useful for people who want to calibrate and/or fine-tune their products, something common we see in most home theater setups today.
The HD test disk has been designed to provide a mechanism for comprehensive testing of the main elements of video processing, namely noise reduction, format conversion, and image enhancement. The noise reduction test patterns check the ability of the system under test to reduce analog and digital noise. The format conversion test patterns provide a comprehensive test of the capabilities of the de-interlacing done by the system.
