So I am a first-time projector buyer and am looking to do at least some level of elementary calibration using a colorimeter. I go on amazon and see they are selling the i1 display pro for a decent price, so I'm like "great, this should suit me as a start." However after talking to various people on the phone and reading more, they are saying this retail version won't work with Calman or Chromapure software? This does not make sense to me, unless Calman and Chromapure have changed the firmware on the device and the software will only respond to that firmware.
There are so many threads that seem to call this meter different things, and it really confuses me jumping in. For example, I read somewhere that the display 3 pro is much better than the i1 display, but then there was a re-branding...so now they're all the same? I'm sure this information is in one of these threads somewhere, but I feel like the more I read the more confused I get.
I figured I would simply buy the amazon meter, try the hcfr open source stuff out, then if I feel like that's not enough some time down the line I could just buy the calman/chromapure software....please let me know if that's possible.
