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.
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.
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.
are you ever gonna add support for the CRI meters ? (at least the spectros)
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! ]
And, is it possible to save the spectrum to the device ?
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.
