My understanding is ChromaPure does support/work with the i1Display Pro. From your comments it looks like I would need a spectro as well to create my own correction file(s) for my display(s), which I presume will ChromaPure allow?
Do I have this right? Thanks.
All i1Display PRO's (OEM / Retail / or Branded OEM like C6's) are calibrated from X-Rite (no other company can change the default factory calibration, so any NIST certification is just confirming that the meter is fine from the factory only, nothing more than a pass/fail test, since the meters are low cost and X-Rite is not providing any proof that they are certified, just the unit to unit variations performance is controlled, its not so large deviations like Spyder's).
X-Rite provide the EDR to software developers. When you select EDR file of a display tech, its combined with the factory calibration of the meter data and then its calculated the correction.
EDR files are X-Rite meters feature (ColorMunki Display/i1Display PRO), can't be used from for other brands of meters.
When you are using EDR, you expect that the meter is accurate, and because such colorimeters are low cost devices, there unit-per-unit variations (unit per unit variations are ignored, not counted when you are using EDR corrections.)
Because Tom have seen (and all of us also) that the results are better when you are using meter four color matrix correction tables using a reference spectro (so you correct the readings totally for a specific display type) he is equipping the i1Display III (called) with software offsets for many display types.
