We posted a release (082013) for the Radiance 20XX (only) that adds a 9x9x9 (729 points) RGB palette for CMS. Note that the Radiance Mini/XD/XE/XS will not get a 9x9x9 palette due to limited space in their FPGA.
The calibration software vendors (Chromapure, Light Illusion, Spectracal) should have new releases that support the new 9x9x9 very soon.
NOTICE: You should Download your configuration to a PC (don't forget to save to a file after downloading) before updating. Once you update, use the 9x9x9, and Save, you cannot revert to older software without doing a factory reset, or uploading a configuration from before the 082013 release (after rolling back software). This is because the 729 point CMS required changing the configuration memory allocation.
Here is the text from the update log:
Production 082013- Adds new 9x9x9 (729 point) gamut correction. Previous 125 point calibrations are not modified unless you choose to do so. You can optionally change from 125 point mode to the new 729 point mode which will maintain your calibration and interpolate the new points that could then be adjusted if necessary. You can also still calibrate in 8 or 125 point mode in the menu or with older calibration software as well. Look for updates soon from SpectraCal, Chromapure and Light Illusion supporting the new Radiance 9x9x9 CMS. Fixup for potentially not detecting that 3D was discontinued by a source. A few fixes for HDMI audio handshaking. Update time ~15 minutes @57k
This update modifies the configuration to accommodate the new 9x9x9 gamut. Try the new update for a little bit before making config changes and saving. Once you have performed a "Save" configuration command with this update and you are using CMS 2-7 then going back to previous firmware and using CMS 2-7 will give incorrect colors. You could however perform an "Undo", save that, and then go back, reload an old saved configuration file, or do a factory reset to go back if you perform a save with this new update..
The configuration utility was updated to handle the 9x9x9 gamut data so download and use config utility v1.6 after updating.
