New Color Measurement Tool - ArgyllPRO ColorMeter

After over 2 years of development, I'm pleased to announce the release
of the ArgyllPRO ColorMeter application.

ArgyllPRO ColorMeter is an Android application that lets you use all your USB connected color measurement instruments on the go. If you need to measure light or color in Printing, Photography, Lighting, Graphic Design, TV, Film or Video, then you will want to check it out.

For complete product details, please see the ArgyllPRO website.

I tested ArgyllPro in detail and found it a very powerful color measuring tool, for display measurement as well as for other color applications. It allows to measure almost all known colorimetric values and color differences. 8 gamut definitions are included, the graphics can be tuned with different options and the operation is very intuitive.
The test was done with a JETI 1211. The app connected very fast to the probe and also the speed of the measurement including the adaption of integration time is very high.
The result of my test is that ArgyllPro is a very versatile and useful tool for mobile color measurement.

Does this app have the ability to generate patterns, access patterns in external pattern generators or do you manually display the necessary patterns in your pattern source?

The current version depends on an external source (i.e. a test disk, or some other signal generator you can use), if you want to measure or adjust TV/Video.

I do have in mind something to add signal generation capability in a future release :-)

Cool app Graeme, now I just need to find an Android device to play with...

Question, I went to the website and went through the documentation but I didn't find anything on creating a meter offset. Ie. profiling an i1D3 to an i1Pro2.

This is not a capability of the current version of ColorMeter, but of course you can create .ccmx and .ccss files using ArgyllCMS and DispcalGUI and uploading them to Colormeter. See here for how to do this with the OEM files, or for single files you can dump them in the Downloads folder on Android - see here.

It's certainly crossed my mind to add a feature to allow creating .ccmx and .ccss files using ColorMeter, but to be practical it would depend on having a connected signal generator, and I'm not quite sure how it would work from a UI point of view. Priority of such a feature will depend on feedback (thanks for yours!), and how popular the application becomes amongst display measurement users.

So if you have a Klein K10, will you be able to access the profiles in it's memory locations?

Thinking here is I can use chromasurf to generate profiles and put these profiles into the K10 memory for ColorMeter to use.

I have a Google Nexus 7 coming from Amazon which should be here tomorrow. Looking forward to giving ColorMeter a spin.

Yes, they show up in the Display Type spinner.

I'll be updating the app in the next week or so to fix some bugs & improve accessibility.

Any progress in this area such as a chromecast function?

I'm still working towards it - there are a couple of new instruments and other changes in the pipeline ahead of it.
(The functionality is present in ArgyllCMS V1.7).

Graeme,

are you ever gonna add support for the CRI meters ? (at least the spectros)

And, is it possible to save the spectrum to the device ?


Thanks.

Only if they are interested in having support. Buying one of their meters and RE'ing the USB protocol is outside my financial and time constraints.
SDK's for desktop platforms don't provide a solution for Android, and I can't say something works if I haven't tested it.

Bottom line - they don't appear to be interested in support for their instruments. Go talk to them about it.

[ In distinct contrast, Klein and JETI have provided the necessary support to make this happen. So buy one of their instruments instead! ]

Unfortunately not at present. It's something I revisit every time I prepare a new release since a number of people have requested this, but I'm struggling to allocate any time to it at the moment.

have Klein and CRI spectro and also i1Pro 2... need spectrum files from CRI or i1Pro 2 saved to device.

CRI has their own, free Android app, but have not yet included the feature to save measured spectrum to device. Btw, X-Rite's free ColorTrue Android app does also not yet have that feature.

Yours is a commercial app, hence a feature like that would be a reason to buy the app !


Re meter support: you need to get after that, but it seems your not interested... ;-)
