How can you calibrate a monitor, like the Dell 3007, without RGB controls?
If I use the native whitepoint, which measures (Eye One Display 2) about 5500k, then of course the image after profiling is warmer - or more yellow.
I have a dual monitor setup. The other monitor is a Dell 2405 with RGB controls - which allow me to set the white point during the calibration stage to 6500K. Then on the calibrated 2405 monitor, the color is virtually perfect for my work. On the other hand, the 3007 monitor (without the calibration step) does not match the calibrated 2405.
I have tried every possible combination. Setting the white point to 6500K on the 3007, still profiles to a different screen appearance (more saturated, less accurate) than the calibrated 2405.
Is there a way to fully optimize a monitor without RGB controls?
