As well as correcting the contrast andbrightness, the Spyder2 colorimeter and new 2.0 software scientifically measurethe Red Green Blue chromaticity values of the display screen. Those readings arethen stored as custom ICC profiles, and loaded to the video card as calibrationcorrections, Chilton adds.At the PhotoPlus Expo, visitors to Booth 1104 can learn more about the package saward-winning monitor software that now comes with projector calibration for LCD andDPL projectors.
