Source Connect

Konvision internal test patterns are available to be used during CalMAN 3D LUT creation.

To connect CalMAN to the Konvision monitor internal test pattern generator:

  1. On the CalMAN Source Settings tab, click the Find Source button.
  2. On the Find Source dialog, under Manufacturer, select Konvision
  3. Under Model, select Konvision
  4. Enter the Konvision monitor’s IP address. (The default monitor IP address is 192.168.1.155)
  5. Click Connect

Display Connect

CalMAN connects to the Konvision monitor to automatically load a created 3D LUT into one of the Konvision monitor’s ColorSpace modes.

To connect CalMAN to the Konvision monitor for display control:

  1. On the CalMAN Display Control tab, click the Find Display button.
  2. On the Find Display dialog, under Manufacturer, select Konvision
  3. Under Model, select Konvision
  4. Enter the Konvision monitor’s IP address. (The default monitor IP address is 192.168.1.155)
  5. Click Connect

Device Settings

Source Settings

  1. On the CalMAN Source Settings tab, click the Video Passthrough On/Off button to temporarily disable the Konvision internal test pattern generator, to allow access to the monitor’s on-screen display menu.
  2. In the monitor’s on-screen Setup menu, click the Factory Reset button to reset the monitor control to factory default (Menu > Setup > Factory Reset).
  3. In the monitor’s on-screen Imj Adjust menu, under ColorSpace, set the mode to Bypass.

Display Control

On the CalMAN Display Control tab, select the desired Konvision ColorSpace mode (REC709, EBU, SMPTE C, DCI P3, USER1, USER2, or sRGB) into which CalMAN will automatically load the 3D LUT that it creates.

Note: In the Konvision monitor, the ColorSpace control needs to be set to Bypass during CalMAN 3D LUT calibration.

In CalMAN, under Settings > Workflow Basic Options > Target Options, select your desired calibration targets for the Konvision ColorSpace mode that you selected under Display Mode Selection on the Display Control tab.


Display 3D LUT Calibration

The CalMAN Quick Analysis workflow will be the easiest workflow to use to create a 3D calibration LUT for the Konvision monitor.

Alternately, the Color Cube (3D LUT) workflow could be used.

To create a 3D calibration LUT for the Konvision monitor:

  1. Open the CalMAN Quick Analysis workflow
  2. On the workflow Introduction screen, click the 3D Cube LUT button to navigate to the 3D LUT Calibration page.
  3. On the 3D LUT Calibration page, click the AutoCal button at the right end of the meter action buttons. The AutoCal Setup dialog then appears
  4. Under Calibration Type, select the desired type of 3D LUT calibration process.
    • 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.
    • 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.

    • 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.

      • Note: Konvision monitors are linear enough that the CalMAN Lightning LUT process is usually the best 3D LUT option.

  5. Click OK.

    Upon completion of the AutoCal 3D LUT calibration process, CalMAN automatically loads the optimized 17x17x17 LUT calibration data into the Konvision monitor, in the previously selected ColorSpace mode.

Calibration Validation

To validate a Konvision monitor 3D LUT calibration:

  1. On the CalMAN Source Settings tab, click the Video Passthrough On/Off button to temporarily disable the Konvision internal test pattern generator, to allow access to the monitor’s on-screen display menu.
  2. In the monitor’s on-screen Imj Adjust menu, under ColorSpace, select the mode that you had selected on the CalMAN Display Control tab during 3D LUT calibration.
  3. Advance to the ColorChecker page in the Quick Analysis workflow (or the Gamma & ColorChecker page in the Color Cube (3D LUT) workflow.
  4. On the CalMAN ColorChecker page, click the Read Series [...] button to measure and chart the monitor’s calibrated performance.
