That's incorrect, Calman supports at least the JVC range (most models since the rs40/rs50) smile.gif

 

I stand corrected. You are quite right. Thanks for the info! :)

Note: For those who are, or have tried my suggestion about negating the Computer Settings on the HDMI Inputs, please watch as to whether your TV is recognizing your Computer as a Computer (Wherein you will see the Computer Settings), or as just another Video Input, thereby, NOT showing you the Computer settings.
I'm curently using a Laptop with the HDMI Output, and it is recognized by the TV as being a PC Input. My friend plugged his Computer's HDMI Output into his TV, and it recognized it as a Video Input. Thusly, he couldn't change his Computer Settings to having Zeroes for the 10/2 Point, CMS and Colour.

Hello. Does anyone have any further details on Calman5.2 new RGB workflows "Monitor - Introduction, Monitor - Standard, and Monitor - Advanced" Are these new workflows for calibrating PC Monitors?

Yes, and the new Client 3 for Mac and PC should be going up today.

Very nice! I particularly like the Mac part smile.gif Looking forward to trying this out.

Looks like they are actually getting pushed one more day as the last of the polish goes on CalMAN RGB.

I sent the e-mail below to Spectracal. I would like a comment from them or other users.


As a purchaser of one of your products I received an email last week titled "Time to Upgrade Your Colorimeter!" . At the bottom of this email, under the heading ”What meter is right for me?”, is the statement that the C3 meter is accurate only with LCD displays (and the accuracy tables are footnoted as applies to LCD displays only). This information is at variance with the information disclosed to consumers elsewhere on your web site. See this page: http://store.spectracal.com/consumer/c3.html . Note that this page states that the C3 supports plasma. But if the C3 in fact does not support plasma, as your latest communication states, that would explain why I get an unacceptable picture on a Panasonic plasma when I use the C3 with Calman software. The picture has a noticeable green tint. Twice I returned this meter to be checked by you, but you found no fault with the meter. Of course, you would find the meter accurate, and I would find the calibrated picture inaccurate, if the accuracy if guaranteed only with a LCD display.

I relied on the information on your website in making the decision to purchase the kit. As a result of the inaccurate calibration with the C3 kit, I subsequently had to have the TV professionally calibrated.

If at its price point the C3 cannot support both plasma and LCD, but one or the other, you made the wrong choice. Plasma buyers are the ones fanatic about picture quality and would be the target market for this product – not LCD buyers!

Get the i1Pro 2 to profile to your C3, or better yet, calibrate using the i1Pro 2. If price is an issue, Spectracal does rent the i1Pros.

Hi Kent,

The latest version of our software does have updated Plasma tables for the C3. We've been seeing great results with the update in our lab.

I'm sending my C6 in for re-calibration, what can I expect to find when I get it back? Should I also mention when it's sent back, that I don't calibrate any Plasmas in my house?

We re-certify C6s. We can't re-calibrate them. Depending on warranty status, we will replace them if they are out of spec.

Hi all I upgrade to Calman 5 enthusiast license and downloaded the latest beta software Calman 5.1.2 build 1257. I have the Lumagen 2041 and now I cannot seem to get Calman 5 to talk to the lumagen it won’t recognize it. I checked all cables they’re fine( how do I know they’re fine, you ask?) I downloaded the Lumagen Configuration file to my PC with no issues at all using Rs232 to USB with a USB ext lead. I had no issues a few months back( April May ), Echo is ON im just confused to as why its not communicating. Any ideas? I have tried on both Win 7 and Win 8 no luck at all.

Thank you

Frank

This is not the latest beta software. You should try V5.2rc1a which is avalable from the standard download screen. This is the latest version, and the most stable.

If you use an FTDI usb com port adapter, make sure you've got the latest driver.

Ill give it a try, but it worked when downloading Lumagen 2041 configuration file to PC
post #1820 of 2247
I gave it a try with the latest calman 5 update and updated my USB FTDI. Still no luck but still able to download lumagen configuration to PC confused.gif

A few ideas to debug:

- try to unplug the power cord from the Lumagen for 15s before replugging before your next test, just in case
- If you use a USB HUB, try without
- If you use a USB extension lead, try without
- Check that the COM: port hasn't changed and that you are using the same/right COM port in Calman and in the Lumagen config software
- If you're using a VM try to use a native windows install

Just a quick question. Last time I tried to enter profile co-ordinates manually into calman 5, it wouldn't let me enter a negative number. (If I recall correctly) Is this still the case? Need to know as I'm about to purchase as jetti profiled i1d pro.

I couldn't tell you exactly when that was fixed, but it's been fixed internally for some time and is fixed in the current RC on our forums.

I bought this expensive application in the hopes that it would do something it is not going to do, but I think it alone could boost sales as many people would love to have it.

Windows 7/Vista/XP will not allow people to force ICC profiles, even with programs such as Monitor Calibration Wizard, Color Clutch, etc. Games continue to reset ICC profiles to the default one. It is an OS problem, but my god would people buy a program that could truly force ICC profiles! Most people do not have monitors that have all the controls to calibrate their monitors, but it can be done via software. AMD/ATi users can use good old PowerStrip to force ICC profiles, but nVidia will not allow software to be written directly to hardware...
post #1825 of 2247
Ok I've tried refreshing my computers with still no luck in getting my lumagen 2041 to talk to calman 5 Enthuiasts. Communicates great with lumagen configuration software have no issues in changing FW which I did also.
I also use RS232 for my Pronto remote so my next question is, is my setting on the lumagen rs232 meant to change? I have Echo on regardless but should the Demilters be a different setting?
post #1826 of 2247
That was the problem, fixed it smile.gifsmile.gif I had to turn delimiters to off.
post #1827 of 2247
Is it possible to go back and run AutoCal on the 10pt grayscale a second time within the same session without the grayscale being reset ? I was afraid to try because I thought it might just automatically reset all the grayscale adjustments without any warning.

I ask because I noticed that my grayscale shifted from a slight blue bias on the low end to a green bias after I ran AutoCal on the CMS. I have a VT50 and it always requires large adjustments to Blue, including max'ing out saturation. I think these large adjustments are having an impact on the grayscale.
post #1828 of 2247
Another question regarding meter profiling. Can you get a reliable profile if one color (say Blue) is skipped ?

I've seen some data to suggest the i1 Display3 Pro may actually be a bit more accurate on Blue compared to my i1 Pro, when run on a plasma. I've been happy with my recent calibrations using the D3 Pro profiled to the i1 Pro. except for Blue. As I noted, I continually have to max out saturation and still end up with a delta E of 2.5. That's not so bad, but the hue of Blue just doesn't look right to me.

Others have noted this and Joel from Spectracal has confirmed that some interaction between the two sets of controls is inevitable. Starting another Autocal for greyscale will reset the greyscale (at least it does with my Radiance, assume your TV would be the same). It is permissible to fine tune the greyscale manually using the DDC controls after doing the CMS.

Thanks... I did just that and made the adjustments manually. I guess I will just keep doing the same on future runs.
