Yes, it works with Calman.
I can really recommende that software.
And yes again the retail is locked and the only software it works with is x-rite and Calman.
He's looking to calibrate a monitor, likely using ICC profiles, not a TV or projector in this case. CalMan has a CalPC add-on that works with the i1DisplayPro. You can also try DispCalGUI, which uses the ArgyllCMS backend, and is free. Most other solutions (ColorEyesPro, for example) don't support the i1Display Pro yet, or aren't planning to at this point it seems. Outside of the free XRite software, those are your best bet right now.
(1.) How do I know I have a retail or OEM i1Display Pro ?
I purchased mine off eBay (new) and it came including the i1Profiler software, so after your responses I thought I purchased the retail version... But when I opened basicColor 5 it recognized the meter and I was able to make a profile...
Still a little bit unsure, it would not make any sense considering ordering CalMan (or CalPC) as I don't know if my meter is supported... their test versions do not support any meter recognition...
Any advise regarding that matter ? How can I check whether my i1Display Pro is RETAIL or OEM ?
(2.) Any links for Monitor calibration tutorials using any of the software mentioned in this thread ?
I did run the i1Profiler calibration and the basicColor calibration. Both made a difference on my notebook screen. Maybe a good tutorial can help squeeze a little bit more out... Any links or recommendations would be appreciated !
