I am new here, and new to colour management. Very confusing stuff!
I am in the US. I purchased the NEC PA241W-BK-SV bundled with the SpectraView II software and NEC MDSVSENSOR (Custom iOne Display v2).
Like the monitor a lot so far. The question is whether it is better to calibrate using:
1. SpectraView II software with the MDSVSENSOR (Custom iOne Display v2)
2. European SpectraView Profiler software with the MDSVSENSOR (Custom iOne Display v2)
This fellow on tftcentral indicates that profiling with the european SpectraView Profiler software is better, because it calibrates the monitor's LUT. He states that the US SpectraView II software calibrates using a hardware Matrix table. http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/nec_pa271w.htm
Which is better to us to calibrate my monitor? Despite lesser quality Matrix table, does the custom calibrated MDSVSENSOR make a better overall result? Does the the MDSVSENSOR not work as well with the european Specraview Profiler software for which it was never intended to be used? I have downloaded both and looked at both, and have not seen a major difference.
YES, SpectraView Profiler DOES allow me to select and perform "Hardware Calibration (monitor LUTs)" on my monitor.
I've attached my reports, but I'm not sure if they are comparable as I am new to this.
Thank you very much!
