I am an amateur calibrator, and I have an X-rite i1 Display Pro (with PC monitor calibration software), and a Calman DIY license (for televisions), and I've ran into a new problem that I can't seem to solve:
There is a new "fad" for buying Korean-branded and targeted 27" IPS monitors. They have no OSD, a very low cost, and are using the same LG IPS panels that are sold to Dell, Apple, HP, etc. The catch is, they usually have a flaw or two. The one I bought is no exception: it's a beautiful display, and has zero dead/stuck pixels, but it has pretty poor uniformity. If I take a small white notepad window, and move it around the screen, I can easily see the color temperature of white change. The reference point that I calibrated against is a perfect white (to my eyes), but along the edge 1/3 portions of the screen, it's definitely warmer. I measured the different points with the included Xrite software, and verified what my eyes are seeing. Thankfully, the brightness uniformity is pretty decent, but I'd like to correct the color temperature uniformity (or lack thereof).
Is there any relatively inexpensive software package that can correct for PC display uniformity issues? This would obviously have to be a software solution, and would require an extensive calibration (from a dozen+ points on the monitor), but would work wonders on this monitor. I don't think CalPC has this feature, but if SpectraCal is listening, if they add it to a future release, I will gladly buy a license.
