QUESTION: The LCD3090WQXi has a self calibration feature and I can connect my X-Rite iOne Display V2 sensor and calibrate the monitor. Do I still need the SpectraView calibration software?
ANSWER: It depends on the particular application that the monitor is being used for and the software being used. If the software is color management aware, then normally an ICC/ColorSync display profile is needed in order to accurately convert images for viewing. Since the self calibration feature of the LCD3090WQXi is entirely self contained within the monitor, it can not generate an ICC/ColorSync profile on your system. Also the flexibility of the self calibration feature is limited compared to what can be done with the SpectraView software. So in these cases it is recommended to use the SpectraView calibration software to calibrate and profile the display monitor.
QUESTION: I connected the X-Rite iOne Display V2 color sensor to the USB port on the LCD3090WQXi and SpectraView reports that it can not detect a supported color sensor. What is wrong?
ANSWER: The USB port on the LCD3090WQXi is for using the self calibration feature only. When calibrating using SpectraView the color sensor must be connected to a USB port on the host system and not to the display directly.
QUESTION: What sensors are supported by the self calibration feature on the LCD3090WQXi?
ANSWER: The X-Rite iOne Display V2 is the only sensor supported by the self calibration feature.
