Do you see this as a way to differentiate or just another logo trying to crowd onto your box's fron panel?

I don't think there is a shortage of color certification standards nor of color adjustment tools. The challenge is to make them user friendly. I would think that by definition they would require some kind of a closed loop process that detects the image on the screen and compares it to the "expected" or "intended" values.

...this means the days will soon be over, when I buy me a beautiful orange shirt on the internet and get an ugly yellow one. I check always the color on different computers before I buy something.

@Olaf: This is exactly one of the scenarios Technicolor has identified!

Purely, it is a business and before you know it many people will join. It is pure business and we are going to see a lot of that. It is like the ecostar which shows when your monitor is booting up.

@Olaf, it all comes down to adoption. If they can get many penetrations. Otherwise, nothing changes. I think bringing an order in these areas will be tough owing to the level of innovation.

ambitious goal

I find this truly an ambitious goal. So, Technicolor wants to become Dolby of the color gamut. Interesting idea (as a business model for Tehnicolor), but I suspect that it take years before consumers become aware of this, and start hunting for a display that comes with Technicolor certificatipon. I can't imagine what sort of marketing dollars they will be putting into this...

Applies to tablets, too?

In the story, you mention the certification will be applied to any size display. Does this mean that tablets will be also included?

I thought the THX Display program pretty much handled this already, it would be trivial to add another "level" to include a wider gamut  http://www.redbearinc.com/LG/pdf/THX.pdf

@Junko: Yes, they are going for the whole kahuna--smartphones, tablets, notebooks, displays of all sorts.

If the studios push for color gamut as part of the next gen UHD format they may be sitting pretty
