Seven G format requirements for custom test patterns/images/video files

One great feature of the Seven G is the ability for a user up upload custom test images, test patterns, or video clips. Although the Seven G has hundreds of these files built-in, it is sometimes desirable to use a custom image or video clip. This is helpful when verifying a calibration, or perhaps testing a display for compliance or performance. Below you will see a list of requirements for any images, patterns, or video clips that you'd like to upload. 

*NOTE - if your file does not meet the following requirements, there are many ways to convert the file to a type that will work with the Seven G. Some users have reported that using Photoshop is an easy way to convert file types. 

FHD1920x1080 or UHD3840x2160
Picture Type:
yuv, rgb, bmp, jpg, jpeg, png, gif, tif, tiff
Video Type:
yuv, mov, mp4, or multi picture folder(support rgb, bmp, jpg, jpeg, png, gif, tif, tiff. such as pic0001.bmp, pic0002.bmp, pic0003.bmp...)
Note: In the 'multi-picture folder' video type, the number of pictures must be less than 4320 FHD pictures or 10800 UHD pictures.
When in FHD mode, the number of pictures in the multi-picture folder must be a multiple of 4, for example, 4, 8, 12, 60, etc. If it is 7
pictures, the last 3 pictures will be ignored and will not be upload into the 7G device.
Video Length:
total frames less than 10800. (such as:3 minutes and fps = 60, total frames is 3x6x60 = 10800) 
rgb type:
file size = 6220800 //FHD1920x1080 //RGB888
file size = 24883200 //UHD3840x2160 //RGB888
file size = 26542080 //4096X2160  //RGB888 //all left and right black bezel
yuv type:
file size = 3110400 //FHD1920x1080 //8bit p420
file size = 8294400 //FHD1920x1080 //dolby file
file size = 24883200 //UHD3840x2160 //12bit p420
file size = 33177600 //UHD3840x2160 //dolby file

I have attached two images. One is the original test pattern (colorful), and what the same test pattern looks like after being uploaded with an incompatible file type (white screen).
