2690WUXi2 and SpectraviewII
« on: March 25, 2010, 10:57:34 AM »

I'm saying goodbye to my trusted and loved Lacie E22blue and I just ordered a 2690WUXi2. I want to use it in tandem with a second Samsung 24 inch LCD.  The goal being to have ny NEC profiled for prepress and to have the Samsung profiled to support jpgs destined for the web.

I have the NEC software but it is only useful for the NEC.  WHat do I need to use (add) to profile the second monitor.  

System details:

W7 64bit, ATI4650 1gb video card.  I also have EYE1 display2 and software and  colormunki.  I plan on using the Munki with the Spectraview software.

Thanks in advance!

Both the Eye1 and the Colormunki come with their own profiling software, either of which should work fine.  Definitely use SV2 for the new NEC, because only it is able to access the internal lookup table on that monitor.  On the other monitor, I'd guess the colormunki might be somewhat better because it's a full spectrophotometer, while the Eye1 is a simple colorimiter, but you could try both and see which gives you a better match.  Just put up an image on both monitors and try to get a match.

Just to clarify, you must be talking about the Eye-One DISPLAY (and Display2) colorimeters. Both the Eye-One *Pro* and Eye-One *Monitor* (yes, I still have mine!) are spectrophotometers.

I just received an NEC LCD3090WQXi with SV2. Plugging the NEC hardware into the USB on the monitor simply does not work. The device is not recognized. It all works fine plugged into a USB on the back of my Mac Pro. I assume the USB port is defective. Any comments? Am I at any disadvantage not using the USB on the monitor?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Can't speak to whether your monitor's USB is defective but plugging the hardware puck into your computer's USB port should work fine.

Have you run a usb cord from the monitor to your computer?  I assume that the usb ports on the monitor are a hub, which won't work unless it's run to the computer.

Thank you for your input. I cannot see a problem with plugging the SVII hardware into a USB on the computer and all did seem to work fine. I have not tried running a USB cable from the monitor to the computer and frankly, I'm not sure what that would do or help solve the problem. USB ports on a monitor are a hub, I agree. My guess is that the USB port is defective in some way. I have to admit, if all works fine, I simply would cry to have to pack this beast up and return it for replacement or repair. It is for this reason that I am asking if I am losing anything by plugging it into the USB on the Mac Pro. I do think I'm fine but looking for reassurance. Thank you for your input.

QUESTION: The LCD3090WQXi has a self calibration feature and I can connect my X-Rite iOne Display V2 sensor and calibrate the monitor. Do I still need the SpectraView calibration software?

ANSWER: It depends on the particular application that the monitor is being used for and the software being used. If the software is color management aware, then normally an ICC/ColorSync display profile is needed in order to accurately convert images for viewing. Since the self calibration feature of the LCD3090WQXi is entirely self contained within the monitor, it can not generate an ICC/ColorSync profile on your system. Also the flexibility of the self calibration feature is limited compared to what can be done with the SpectraView software. So in these cases it is recommended to use the SpectraView calibration software to calibrate and profile the display monitor.

QUESTION: I connected the X-Rite iOne Display V2 color sensor to the USB port on the LCD3090WQXi and SpectraView reports that it can not detect a supported color sensor. What is wrong?

ANSWER: The USB port on the LCD3090WQXi is for using the self calibration feature only. When calibrating using SpectraView the color sensor must be connected to a USB port on the host system and not to the display directly.

QUESTION: What sensors are supported by the self calibration feature on the LCD3090WQXi?

ANSWER: The X-Rite iOne Display V2 is the only sensor supported by the self calibration feature.

THANK YOU!! That clears up that question. Much appreciated.
