Good to hear. You can find more information for each product on the website.
I'm curious about the "input 6 pro" and also about the upgrade costs for display and input...

I can only say for basICColor Display - upgrade to v6 from v5 was 50 British pounds for me - I went via https://www.colourmanagement.net/

I found the following note in the FAQ for the new release:

Quote
Monitor profiles come in 2 different "flavors": Matrix-based and LUT based. The macOSs Sierra, High Sierra and Mojave do not support LUT-based profiles correctly. Please make sure, your monitor profiles for these operating systems are of the matrix-based type (default setting in basICColor display 6)

I am puzzled by this statement as I believe that ColoraNavigator builds and installs LUT based profiles. I want to get a trial license to evaluate basICColor display on Mojave but it sounds I can't use the LUT in which case it is not a valid evaluation. And I don't want to upgrade to Catalina until I have a way to build profiles for my monitor.

Anyone have any insight to this issue.

PS I have sent in a support request to basICColor and I post any response back here.

Yes, depending on the OS flavor and other oddities, some LUT based profiles are not supported properly. I’ve seen this in the past on my MacBook Pro display. There should be an option in such a case to build Matrix profiles that do appear to behave correctly.

Thanks Andrew,
I also received a reply from Franz Herbert at basICColor explaining the limitations.

when we speak about Lut profiles we actually mean 3D Lut. We are always using the Luts in the monitor.


So this may be a viable alternative to ColorNavigator.
