Well. Newbie member here. I've read this thread with bemusement. For reference, I'm reviewing the MX02 and have many of the same questions regarding a 'compliant' monitor. I asked Matrox for a response and have received none. One of the chief mysteries revolved around rumors that it would drive an Apple Cinema Display (As does the MXO). I'll find out tomorrow. Next is that Matrox doesn't offer any feedback with regard to the usefulness of the MX02 in accurately calibrating a computer monitor for color grading purposes. In other words, There's calibration using visual or even colorimetric 'tools' to deliver a theoretically Broadcast compliant chart but that may or may not ( as a result of gamma considerations) mean a broadcast compliant calibration.
To simplify, I suspect that:
- You can calibrate a computer monitor of the correct resolution - 1920x1080 and possessing the proper input HDMI/HDSDI but that may not meet the stricter requirements of Broadcast if the monitor cannot achieve a native gamma of 2.2
- Something like this will definitely be enough for color grading.

Keep in mind that color grading really refers to syncing video color to a baseline standard and THEN, adjusting it according to artistic intent IF that is the desire. Otherwise, the baseline is always a strict standard of color balance (through correction) plus Gamma.
