This is the post I was referring to:
The link didn't work for me, but I found the message anyway:
"The SpectraView Profiler software can basically be used with the standard
MultiSync LCD2090UXi, however this will be software calibration (grafic
board side) only.
For hardware calibration you need to use the SpectraView 2090.
This is one of the differences of these two models. Beside this the
SpectraView models have i.e. more narrow specifications for uniformity and
It looks like NEC wants to retain control over the hardware calibration and keep the profits in-house. Also maybe why support for NEC models was pulled from basICColor's Display. Sigh. My understanding is that the Custom functions are still supported by the base model ... maybe Nill can confirm this.
