Hi there,

My PC display is a very good quality one and it's calibrated using an Eye1 color meter and iMatch. I understand that usually only professional software are using the profile (say Lightroom, Photoshop) and that many apps do not take advantage of it - that's why a picture displayed with Photoshop looks different than the same picture displayed with Windows Photo viewer.

When it comes to watching Blu Rays, is there a player out there that can take advantage of the calibration? I am not talking about setting the brightness and contrast, I am talking about the .icc profile craated by iMatch when calibrating the monitor.

Thanks in advance for your help!
Tony

Not really, but you could calibrate your display with tools such as HCFR to make sure that things look like they should on your display.

Another approach is to use a tool such as yCMS and a video player such as MPC-HC and MadVR, if your display doesn't have a full CMS system.

Thanks for your reply.

My monitor has some basic controls but nothing more. It looks beautiful when calibrated through Windows, but per se it's not the best.
I'll have a look at the tools you suggested, thank you a lot!

Tony

Edit: that looks exactly what I need, thanks! I'm still in the phase "nothing works", but I can see the potentials, calibration, exclusive mode at 24p... looking forward to tinkering with it! Thanks again!
