testPoint

Test 'n trust!

testPoint is a handy tool to test & tuneup the monitor as well as the user's working position. In example it's useful to assess the influence of the ambient light to the color perception.

testPoint shows test templates on computer screen. Most of templates have tunable properties. The user can tuneup these properties via hotkeys, mouse or interactive dashboard. There are 78 prepared templates. Users can create their own tests too. All tests can be combined in groups, thus organizing the test process.

testPoint supports video walls - up to 6 rows and 6 columns on one screen. All running tests can be driven simultaneously or separately.

The user can select on which screen to open the test template. The template is launched on the current desktop. This way the user will be able to continue with its other tasks on other desktops.

Each test can be associated with a dashboard - just click with the right mouse button. The dashboard can drive one or multiple tests in an interactive manner. There is short description of the current test in the dashboard. A short description of the current test is available in the dashboard.
