Hi Robert,

What you are referencing is what is known as Metamerism Failure. This happens when we view different displays with different spectral distributions in close proximity to each other. This short video might help shed some light on the subject as well as provide a brief description of what you can expect from each of the FSI models in relation to their specific types of spectral distribution.

As far as objective measurement go, FSI uses over $50,000 worth of industry standard equipment to align and measure each unit. We start with a Minolta CS2000 Spectroraditiometer to measure the panels native response curves and then create model specific offsets that are input into a Minolta CA310 Colorimeter to align each unit to industry standards. We then use a Photo research PR655 with a 5 nanometer bandwitdh option to measure the alignment. The link below will take you to the tech resources on the FSI website and give you the information in much greater detail.

We do have quite a few customers who use the LM2461W in high end finishing suites, using Barco's and Christie's, that swear by that unit being as close to a perfect match to their projectors as they have seen with an LCD monitor.

You bring up good points and this is not a sales pitch, I'm just sharing information and I'm sure others here may have more valuable insight on their actual use of the FSI monitors in their suites.
