Monaco Profiler has 3 RGB profiling targets, plus the option of linearization.
Just booting it up on the G5, I see 8 stinkin linearization options for RGB: 5/10/15/20/25/30/35 and 40 patches. This is much like the silly 0-100 smoothness slider in the current i1P product. Even thought 1-10 would be more than enough (despite 1-8 doing nothing <g>), 0-100 sounds like more. What engineer (not Marketing) came up with that many options and why on earth would I pick 5 patches over 10, or 30 over 35? Like I said, even with a hand held Spectrophotometer, would anyone really not use 40 patches instead of 5?
My take is this: Marketing is working on a competitive analysis for an ad or something. Saying that the product has a linearization option isn't enough to sell the product, they have to state there are no less than 8 options (3 beter than 5 options the competitor might
provide). Doen't matter that having to decide which target to pick is correct or that the manual doesn't help, the bottom line for this company is: more options are always better! For those selling

This mindset hasn't changed over the years.
