The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) has announced the new ClearMR Compliance Test Specification (ClearMR), a new industry standard and logo program that sees gaming monitors meeting a new quality metric for grading motion blur.

In the future, new gaming monitors that have a VESA-certified ClearMR brand logo will know that their new purchase -- be it a display panel, TV, monitors, computers with embedded panels like all-in-ones, laptops, notebooks, and tablets -- will have a new Clear Motion Ratio (CMR) metric, which is defined in the ClearMR standard.

VESA has a clear numerical value based on the ratio of clear pixels to blurry pixels, something that will help consumers easily compare the amount of motion blur between VESA-certified ClearMR displays. VESA replaces the Motion Picture Response Time (MPRT) and other methods of blur characterization since the other metrics -- in the words of VESA -- "do not accurately reflect the true nature of blur".

Dale Stolitzka, senior principal researcher at Samsung Display's America R&D Lab and lead contributor to ClearMR said: "With ClearMR, VESA is providing the electronics industry with an open standard that gives consumers the confidence in knowing that they are purchasing a TV, notebook or monitor that meets the most well-defined set of blur criteria. Backing VESA's ClearMR standard with a logo program will enable buyers to feel confident that they're getting a display with the clearest depiction of action for the utmost in viewing pleasure".

Hojung Lee, vice president and head of Mobile Display Product Planning Team at Samsung Display explains: "Samsung Display has no doubt that consumers will have a much easier time in selecting their TVs, monitors and laptop displays now that the display industry has coalesced around a more exacting quantification of motion blur. We applaud VESA's global standardization of the Clear Motion Ratio metric in ClearMR, a specification for blur-free viewing that we fully support, and to which we have already certified our newest OLED display".
