are you talking about how evenon the same monitor just changing the target brightness or this or that a little and each time you calibrate it might give you say 6480 one time and 6565 another?
I'm not sure I understand the question completely..
If you keep running the calibration on the same monitor the numbers stay close, perhaps if the target is 6500 the variance will be between 6490 and 6410.. this is on both monitors. But I noticed something that makes sense.. I had turned on a 60 watt reading light right in front of the monitors (over my shoulder)
and then the values changes 50-60 points in the negative direction.
A few things which were easier to notice with this SVII than the 1di2.. Warming it up. A good hour and it stabilizes fully. 30 minutes gets you 50% more variance at the finer end of the measurements. Ambient light made a big difference. Laying out the cable without kinks, curves, and as straight as possible and away from other power cables (especially)
and signal cables (to a lesser degree)
helped the variances become more consistent..
It also 'sticks' to the screen. My 1di2 didn't do that. I still have to lean my 'device' (and old back scratcher leaning on the middle with a tv remote anchoring the other end, I imagine we all do something similar)
against it to be sure it stays.. but its nice that it seems to adhere on its own. Running other programs on the other monitor didn't make any difference UNLESS the light output was enough to affect the ambient light levels..
I played with it for a few hours trying to figure out what made it tick.. or tick faster/slower.
I do wish for the $200 it came with some sort of case to keep it clean. I'll have to come up with something. Caselogic makes nice inexpensive cases.. if they'd only open a Walmart here in Bangkok.. I'm a big believer in individual cases to keep things clean, coiling the cable in big loops and without kinks, etc..
I am curious if this SVII puck will work optimally with Imatch software (or better than my 1id2) on my laptops.. especially the LED backlit models with a wider gamut.. I was never happy (at all) with the 1id2/Imatch combo with laptops.. some it seemed fine, others it was obviously lacking.. hoping this will cure it.
I'm tempted to buy a Munki and some other pucks and so a more complete study of this area. The Munki would make sense, since it makes profiles for scanners, printers, etc.. and seeing the difference between a spectrometer and a colorimeter could be interesting.. but I'm afraid there's no practical reason for the others.
I do plan on adding a P271w, possibly two, to the mix once the first or second generation kinks get worked out (providing there are any).. the wife is already complaining about the arcade look though..
I'd imagine the SVII puck will work better with the Samsung Plasma (this years model) 50" since it seems to have a wider gamut.. we'll see.. I have the Spyder tv puck/software for the dvd/blue-ray inputs.. but for the computer HDMI inputs the SVII should work better..
All kinds of testing I want to fool with now. I wonder if Android has an ap to profile it's screen.. ;o)
