Sorry guys, is DCC in the monitor or video card, or in both? and if so which graphics cards have this and which don't
PS: leaning towards the NEC now...but I am sure I will change my mind a dozen times more ;-)
Henrik - I'm dealing with this issue just now and have been for a while since I bought my Lacie 321. The deal is simply this: (1) the monitor must support DDC (if supported, the spec sheet should say so), and (2) the calibration/profiling software you buy must be able to work with your video card for purposes of enabling DDC. Because there is such a huge proliferation of video cards available for the PC platform, it is near impossible for a profiling software provider to have the data needed up to the minute for each and every new card as the market is demanding. Hence Integrated Color Corp for example (a few minutes ago in fact - so you are getting this "hot off the press") recommended to me to either buy a video card which is on the list of tested cards posted on their website, or buy a newer version of one of the cards they list, which MAY work eventhough not listed.
I have no idea how this is being handled by other monitor calibration/profiling software providers, but from the way Integrated Color describes the issue, it is probably not much different.
