I am upgrading the video card in my G5 in hopes of being able to run actual video with the larger ram on the card. Installing today.
So does the new video card change anything that requires me to recalibrate my monitor? Is there something that changes in the LUT or something else.
Just curious, no big deal if it is required, but would like to hear from someone smarter.
As far as I can figure it, there are two calibration/profiling paradigms that we use (excluding Adobe Gamma or other "profile by eyeball" techniques).
With monitors that are calibrated/profiled by addressing the LUT in the monitor itself (such as the NEC monitors with SpectraViewII software) the video card in the computer is bypassed. However, I would check to make sure that the new video card is not set to influence color management.
The other paradigm concerns profiling/calibration software that changes the LUT of the video card.
In both these cases, though, it would seem reasonable to recalibrate/reprofile the monitor anyway, as it should be done periodically and takes just a few minutes.
