Calibrating monitors with Kona 3
on Apr 6, 2010 at 3:17:02 am

Hey Guys...

We are having some difficult to match our monitor outputs, and I'll like to calibrate my LCD's with the right tools. We bought a monitor probe eye-one display 2, recommended by JVC, that let me calibrate my MAC monitors, but I'n not sure how can I calibrate the video output monitors.

Any direction where I can find the right application is very welcome..

We have a Panasonic BT-LH 1700W, and a JVC DTV24L3DY.

JVC has an application for calibration in his site, but is PC only.

Thanks in advance.

JC

If you are monitoring via the Kona3 card you calibrate the monitor by sending bars to the monitor from your editing program.

Matching your computer monitors to a broadcast monitor will never happen nor do you really need it to, that is the reason you have and external broadcast monitor.

[Juan Carlos Aguirre] "but I'n not sure how can I calibrate the video output monitors."

You use a proper probe for the broadcast monitors like the ones supplied by Flanders Scientific. We use all FSI broadcast monitors here and their monitors are very easily calibrated using a probe the supply that connects directly to the monitor.

The AJA Kona 3 has nothing to do with calibrating monitors.

As someone else in this thread noted, there is no reason to calibrate your computer monitors to "match" the broadcast monitors. You probably calibrate the professional monitors using a probe or color bars and that is what you should be viewing at all times in terms of color and picture quality.
