TV Energy Assessment System

You can download the latest version of the TV Energy Assessment System Software (v3.18.7-7) here: Download TV Energy Assessment System v3.18.7-7

If you haven't already removed versions that pre-date v3.18.7, then first uninstall any previous versions (via the NI Package Manager), as the package name has been changed to neea-tv-energy-assessment-system from pcl-tv-energy-assessment-system.



Second, unzip the file, and run "install.bat" as Administrator.

This download link will be updated as new updates are released.

3.18.6-5 Hotfix (November 15, 2021)

  • Updated issue with standby charts not being generated for some tests, updated issue with standby power calculation using full measurement period instead of only last 2/3.

3.18.6-3 Hotfix (November 10, 2021)

  • Updated labels in standby chart

3.18.6-2 (November 1, 2021)

  • Modified standby section of report to include visualization of 2037-C stability requirements.

  • Modified WT2xx power meter error handling to handle bad data when UUT power-cycles

3.18.6-1 (October 21, 2021)

  • CCF Removal: The software no longer supports per-TV camera calibration, which we call Color Correction Factor (CCF). So, this software must be used in combination with a camera that PCL has calibrated once for use on all TVs.

  • UAC will now always trigger on Windows (software needs to run as Admin)

3.18.5-2 Hotfix (August 24, 2021)

  • Corrects a few incorrect compliance coefficients. Use "rerun_report.bat" in a generated test data folder to re-run the report after installing the update

  • Corrects display of interpolated luminance points for compliance, where necessary

3.18.5 (August 6, 2021)

  • Uses new ambient light levels associated with a 45-degree oriented illuminance meter

  • Uses dynamic luminance measurement for determination of brightest preset picture setting

  • Extended standby duration

  • Allows disabling of CCF step when using pre-calibrated camera. See Kit Manual for details

3.18.4 (March 18, 2021)

  • Now uses NEEA-recommended compliance formulae with some explanations in the report.

  • New tests will also generate a "rerun_report.bat" file that can be used to re-run the report generation scripts on the given folder. You can copy this file to an old folder to generate a new report for that folder.

  • Detect partial/incomplete runs on tests stopped partway through

  • Addition of hover-tooltips to UI buttons that might need further explanation

  • Small changes to prompt formats and button text

  • Removal of extraneous CCF prompt

  • Added standby_guide.pdf, link in software during standby setup stage

  • Added Repeat Test option for running the same test, but writing data to new folder

  • Data folders are now timestamped, preventing duplicates.

3.18.3 (Feb 25, 2021):

  • Clarification of some prompts, additional instructions on some screens

  • Additional data entry validation in test setup

  • Continued improvements to installation/uninstallation process
