Does X-Rite i1Display Pro retail edition need a matrix in HCFR?

I currently have a Colormunki Display, which I purchased in 2014, but find that it results in a greenish tint for grayscale calibrations. So I am considering purchasing the X-Rite i1Display Pro retail edition from Amazon to use with HCFR. Does it require a correction matrix in HCFR and if so, how do I generate one?

There are a number of “display types” you can select from (similar to the Colormunki Display). If none of those match your TV you need to generate a custom correction matrix, but you would need a spectrophotometer such as the i1Pro to do that.

the munki is the lowest grade version of the i1display

it has been a while since i used hcfr but it has built in modes that support the meter.

is that what you want to know?

Got it, thanks. Since I'm calibrating a Panasonic plasma and a Vizio LED then those should be covered by the "Display Types" in HCFR.

Is the i1 Display Pro a better colorimeter than the Colormunki Display and will it be worth the upgrade?

For manual calibrations probably not as it should have the same accuracy.

For 3DLUT it might be worth getting the Pro as it measures significantly faster which you would want for measuring many patches in a 3DLUT.
