Session Options page

On the Session Options page, under Input Signal Levels, select Full (0-255) to match the signal levels that are normally supplied to the monitor input that you are calibrating.

2. Display Pre-Test section

In the Display Pre-Test section of the Color Cube workflow, you can measure the performance of a display before you calibrate it, on the Gamma & ColorChecker page. On the Performance Analysis page, these monitor measurements are then evaluated in a series of pass/fail performance parameters.

The monitor will fail the display performance analysis, but do not be alarmed. This is normal.

3. Display Optimization section

If you click the Optimize Display button on the previous Performance Analysis page, you will step through the pages in the Display Optimization section of the workflow.
Follow the instructions on each page to optimize the adjustments of the monitor’s picture controls prior to 3D LUT display calibration.

4. Display Calibration section

In the Display Calibration section of the Color Cube workflow, there are provisions for calibrating both a 1D RGB LUT (1D Ramp LUT page) and a 3D cube LUT (3D Cube LUT page). When we are calibrating an EIZO monitor with a 3D LUT, we will skip the 1D Ramp LUT page (1D RGB LUT) and use only the 3D Cube LUT page.

Note: EIZO monitors can be calibrated with either a 1D LUT or a 3D LUT (supported models), but not both.

1D Ramp LUT page

  • Skip this page.
  • The EIZO monitor does not support a 1D LUT when creating a 3D LUT.

3D Cube LUT page

  1. On the 3D Cube LUT page, click the AutoCal (rotating arrows) button at the right end of the meter action buttons. The AutoCal Setup dialog then appears.
  2. Under Calibration Type, select the desired type of 3D LUT calibration process.
    1. IR Profile (time based): Creates the best quality display calibration 3D LUT possible in the selected period of time. You select how much display quality you have time for, from 30 minutes to maximum display quality (6,000 points max). Uses Intelligent Resolution Profiling to search out the most nonlinear color space areas and correct those first.
    2. IR Profile (point based): Creates the best quality display calibration 3D LUT possible with the selected number of measurement points (1,000 - 10,000 points). Uses Intelligent Resolution Profiling to search out the most nonlinear color space areas and correct those first.
    3. Lightning LUT: Creates a display calibration 3D LUT in five minutes or less. Produces a very high quality result on professional displays with moderate linearity. Displays with significant nonlinearity may produce marginal results.
      1. Note: EIZO monitors are linear enough that the CalMAN Lightning LUT process is usually the best 3D LUT option.
  3. Under Video Range, select “SMPTE (16-235)” if you are calibrating a video display that clips signal values above reference white.
  4. Click OK.

Upon completion of the AutoCal 3D hardware LUT calibration process, CalMAN automatically loads the optimized 17x17x17 LUT calibration data into the EIZO monitor.

Note: Once an optimized 3D LUT has been loaded into an EIZO monitor, there is no need for, or advantage to, creating an ICC profile for the monitor.

5. Display Validation section

When the cube calibration completes, CalMAN automatically loads the optimized 17x17x17 LUT calibration data into the EIZO monitor. You can test the performance of the monitor, in the Display Validation section of the Color Cube workflow, to verify the accuracy of the monitor when using the 3D calibration LUT. You can switch back to the Gamma & ColorChecker Pre-Test page to compare to the pre-calibration performance.

DONE – You are done with the 3D LUT monitor calibration for an EIZO monitor that is normally connected to a computer’s standard graphics adapter output.
