It’s me, the community reporter! In this topic, I will report on what is happening right now following our last update on ES07D02 (280Hz matte). Many things are happening simultaneously, and I am excited to share the news with you guys!
If you are looking for summary of Spectrum development, click here.
At the start of last week, we faced difficulty due to a lack of manpower on the assembly line, causing our DVT builds to be slightly delayed. Despite the limitations, our contract manufacturer took the matter into their own hands (quite literally) and created two handmade Spectrum ES07D02 DVT builds! So now we are ready to go through the next set of testing to obtain a plethora of certifications that make Spectrum a great product.
Like our previous update on ES07DC9, ES07D02 will also receive its set of safety certifications. The only difference is that while ES07DC9 ran its safety tests in later phase of the project (PVT), ES07D02 will do its testing in the DVT stage instead. This is because ES07DCA skipped both EVT and DVT entirely; therefore the only time we could have done it was during PVT.
At the same time, we will also prepare ES07D02 to ensure its compatibility and support for third-party features. Features tested are:
- AMD FreeSync Premium Pro
- NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible
- VESA DisplayHDR 600
- USB certification test
Along with the development is the tuning of backlight strobing. For this, we have arranged a DVT build for our folks at Blur Busters to start tuning the feature for ES07D02. Our firmware team and Chief Blur Busters (@BlurBusters) are in close contact to make sure everything goes smoothly. In addition, we are also looking to implement backlight strobing with VRR enabled. We will keep you guys updated on the progress of this feature.
This concludes the update for this week. Thank you everyone, for reading and stay tuned for the next update!
