[Bill Davis] "Unless I read it wrong, the post said pretty clearly that currently, the closest dependable match is work coming out of FCP X on a Mac P3 system and displayed on iPhones - since they conform to Color Sync - and, at least in the US, iOS devices are the most common displays. "

That's not my experience, because generally they all look different when played through either QT Player or VLC or Switch, and even more different once it comes from YouTube. Of course, people rarely make such comparisons side-by-side, so if it looks good, it's OK. Usually the differences are contrast, gamma, and saturation. Tint/hue is generally OK.

Heck, you can't even guarantee that two Mac displays next to each other match. It's worse now with the iMacPros, because they are a brighter screen. I would say in general that Apple displays of various models are more consistent with each other across the board, than are matches between an HP and say a Dell. I find that running a non-Apple display on a Mac can be very frustrating if you are picky about color. And yes, X does seem pretty consistent. However, for color accuracy, I would give the edge to the iPad displays over all the others.

However, when it comes to grading, I still get more predictable results when I'm using either an i/o device (AJA or BMD) to a video monitor, or HDMI via a/v output to a consumer panel (TV set). That seems to hold true even for web and mobile devices. This also neutralizes viewer differences across various apps.

BTW - if you want actual color management that the user can access, there's After Effects and Resolve.
