The MonacoOPTIX Display Calibration System
Monday June 2, 2003

Section 1: Introduction



By Ian Lyons
Author's Home Page

Many in the digital imaging industry are finding that LCD type displays can be far more than appealing desktop furniture. These same people will note that LCD displays also present conventional CRT display calibration systems with a unique set of problems. Such are these challanges that many vendors have found it necessary to develop a whole new set of profiling tools.

Enter MonacoOPTIX, a new, low-cost monitor-calibration system from the same stable as MonacoEZcolor. This system is purpose-designed to facilitate fast and accurate calibration of both LCD and CRT type displays. At its heart we find a brand new dual-purpose colorimeter developed by Sequel Imaging - a company renowned for producing high quality display calibration hardware.

Conventional colorimeters such as the Sequel Chroma IV, when supplied with previous versions of MonacoEZcolor, utilise a suction cup arrangement to secure the sensor to the display surface. However, securing the sensor using suction will cause serious damage to the sensitive surface of most LCD's. So instead of attaching the sensor to the LCD, a soft felt-faced attachment suspends the combination over the display. By using its own weight to apply sufficient pressure, minimal extraneous light ingresses to the sensor cell. The new sensor is supplied with removable components that have been designed to ensure that contact between the display surface and the sensor does not cause damage. We also find that the normal sensing cell response for CRT type displays is not appropriate for LCD's, especially with a luminance range extending well over 200cd/m2. Again Monaco Systems have utilised improved electronics with the aim of providing a colorimeter that is more responsive and accurate than the previous CRT-only MonacoSENSOR.

Features and Benefits of MonacoOPTIX:
- The MonacoOPTIX colorimeter utilises intelligent electronics for both LCD and CRT display calibration.
- Patented "Light Tunnel" technology ensures accurate LCD profiles.
- Unique pulse-period timing for accuracy at very low light levels.
- The colorimeter is factory calibrated to National Institute of Standards (NIS) standards.
- Attractive design features including removable components for profiling of LCD and CRT displays.
- Software is intuitive with a wizard-like interface for fast and easy profiling.
- User-selectable white point and gamma settings.
- Hardware-assisted brightness and contrast adjustment for greater accuracy.
- Compatible with Microsoft Windows plus Apple Mac OS9 and OS X.
