To clarify how NEC Multisync wide-gamut operates, the PA242W hardware select switch allows the following choices: Adobe RGB, sRGB, High Bright, Full and Spectraview. The first 4 are calibrated at the factory. When I first installed the monitor, the sRGB was very dim, nothing like my previous monitor. So I call NEC to find out what was the matter. The tech said I should just forget about all the hardware selects and calibrate with SV2 choosing Spectraview at all times. Once you select in Spectraview program, the hardware select indicates Spectraview was selected. YOu can switch back to the other four, but not recommended by NEC.
In SV2, you then can calibrate any number of color gamuts using the calibrator "puck" on the screen: you can select sRGB, Adobe RGB, Native (Full), EBU/ITU (PAL/SECAM), SMPTE-C, DCI, ECI/NTSC(1953), Color Match (P22-EBU) or CRT Display. After calibration, if you don't like the results let's say for soft proof printing, you can manually modify it and then save the new calibration naming it for your personal use. Such as "Alans preset for Canon Photo Pro paper" or "Alans preset for ABC Printing lab." The are 5 adjustments you can make that will override the SV2 color gamut calibration: white point, Intensity, Contrast Ratio, Gamma and Color Trim. So now the related question to these 5 manual adjustments.
With my SV2 in Photo editing (Native-full) and adjusting LR5 to post process, I get to soft proofing for printing. Which of the 5 manual adjustments do you all find are the best to work with if the print does not match the soft proof?
