From ICC profiles. Three sample profiles created after three various calibrations with gamma 2,2 chosen as a target:
OK, I donít fully understand what that means, so Iím grateful if you explain to me.
I hope Christopher has got the answers he wanted, so I can try to understand what you mean with that EasyPIX2 doesnít do a true hardware calibration.
Hereís what I did. I removed all the monitor profiles from the computer and restarted everything. Prior to doing so, I calibrated the monitor to some far edge values that was easy to recognize; brightness 60 cd/m2, contrast 74%, colortemp 5000K, gamma 2.4, gamut sRGB and RGB values 100%, 85%, 65%. This is about what EasyPIX allows you to enter.
I restarted the computer again and itís obvious that thereís no monitor calibration change. Using Eizo Screen Manager Pro, this can easily be confirmed. Checking via Photoshop CS5, thereís no monitor profile in use, Photoshop reports sRGB as monitor profile, but the screen hasnít changed.
Obviously, Eizo is saving the calibration status in the monitor LUT and the only way to get rid of it is to reset the monitor to its factory settings. I can restore any monitor calibration again by copying the monitor ICC-profiles back to its original folder and load it with EasyPIX.
Now, please explain to me in what way the rTRC-gTRC-bTRC tags in the ICC profile has anything to do with the calibration status saved in the monitor LUT and why you don't consider EasyPIX a true hardware calibration solution. Thanks!
