AuthorSubject: black point and luminance in i1 Match   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Charles Beasley
Posted on Sun Jun 8, 2003 12:42 AM

I have just received the i1 Display colorimeter and i1 Match calibrating/profiling software. I ran the calibration and profiling routine on my Mitsubishi 2060 and 2070.
I chose to run it in "Advanced" mode rather than"Easy" mode, and to use the RGB gun controls rather than the monitor's preset white point. I chose 6500K and 2.2 Gamma.

Andrew has been preaching the importance of proper black point setting, and I always thought that the .3 cdm2 recommended by Colorvision was too lihgt, so I calibrated to .2 cdm2 and could still discriminated between 0, 2, 4,6, RGB
values in a grayscale stepwedge.

The routine goes very smoothly, but nowhere (that I have found anyway) is there a way for the user to designate the Black Point or the Luminance values for calibration.

I had been setting these to .2 cdm2 and 85 cdm2 with Optical, and my guess is that the respective values with i1 Match are both lighter.

Does anyone know what values i1 Match calibrates to?
