VESA introduced the ClearMR standard


The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) wants to make it easier for you to buy your next monitor or TV, and it does so by introducing a new standard. And yes, there are already more VESA standards between DisplayPort, DisplayHDR, and AdaptiveSync than anyone can keep track of, but the company decided it wasn’t enough. But the organization’s latest certification program could help demystify one of the more opaque aspects of buying a new display: motion clarity. You probably understand the problem well if you recently spent time researching the purchase of your next monitor or TV. Using gaming monitors as an example, many manufacturers claim their products have a 1ms gray-to-gray (GtG) pixel response time, but they don’t handle motion blur to the same standard.

One reason for this is that manufacturers choose GtG results to make their monitors look better on paper. Right now, one of the best ways to find a monitor or TV that won’t look washed out when playing games and watching videos is to go to stores that set their own specs and settings (but there are very few of those even in the US). They have developed comprehensive testing methodologies to help you bypass all marketing. This process may take less time in the future with the new Clear Motion Ratio Compliance Test Specification, or ClearMR for short. The standard introduces a tiered ranking system designed to convey the ratio of hard and soft pixels that a screen will produce when displaying a fast-moving image.
