Replacement Sensor for Spectraview Software??
« on: February 03, 2020, 01:35:59 pm »

I have been successfully running an NEC 2690WUXI-2 off of my older MacBook Pro and Mac Pro for a number of years. I just purchased a 16" MacBook Pro and discovered that 64-bit NEC Spectraview Software dropped support for the Eye-One Display 2 puck that they originally bundled with the monitor.  Does anyone have recommendations for a replacement sensor? Are there any advantages to the sensor NEC packages with Spectraview monitors (custom firmware, tuning specific to NEC monitors, etc...)?

I'm not in a hurry to replace the monitor, the dE's have trended downward from 0.8 to 0.4 over the years - hard to complain about that.

Here's the list of currently supported sensors:

BasICColor Discus
Datacolor Spyder3
Datacolor Spyder4
Datacolor Spyder5
Datacolor SpyderX
NEC MDSVSENSOR3
NEC SpectraSensor Pro
Photo Research PR-655, PR-670, PR-680, PR-730 and PR-740 Spectroradiometers.
X-Rite ColorMunki
X-Rite i1Display Pro
X-Rite i1Monitor
X-Rite i1Pro
X-Rite i1Pro2
X-Rite i1Studio

Thanks for your help.

Yeah, get an i1 Display Pro or, if you have the need to deal with OLED devices or similar today or in the future, maybe the Plus unit that’s $49 more.

Thanks, Andrew. No OLED's in my imaging future, so the i1Display Pro sounds like the answer.
