misunderstandings about calibration
on Mar 10, 2011 at 9:40:27 am

Hi to all,

I'm Michele, I recently started working as an assistant in a post production service.

I don't understand some things about color management and I wonder what is the correct workflow to calibrate a broadcast LCD monitor with this setup:

Mac Quad-Core Intel Xeon 2x 2,66 ghz
AJA Kona3
Monitor LCD BON BLM-basic240 connected via SDI
X-rite i1Pro

Thanks a lot.

Michele

Start here:

If that is beyond you, hire someone. Which you should anyway...get a pro in there with a pro scope to calibrate the monitors. I do that every 6 months or so.

Thank you for your reply,
I have already made monitor calibration with bars but I wonder if I can do better with the color sensitometer i1pro and understand if I can or not and why.
Thanks again,
Michele

[michele ricossa] "I wonder if I can do better with the color sensitometer i1pro and understand if I can or not and why."

Are you trained on how to use it and calibrate monitors? If not, hire someone who is. This complete "do-it-yourself" mentality has a line you can't cross. Certain things should be left to people who are experts in their field.
