Assuming calibration is performed with professional level hardware and software and identical data is sent clean to each display, what differences can be seen between two displays, one calibrated to Rec. 709 and the other to sRGB? They share the same primaries, CCT, and luminance level (at least for the purpose of this discussion), but the gamma curve is different. Is it the clipped data range (white point and black point) and gamma curve of Rec. 709 that differentiates the two, and if so what colorimetric ramifications are there as a result? If not, what discrepancies exist between the two?

The differences for display calibration is just gamma, and the variation is very, very small.


So small as to be irrelevant in the real world to be honest.

Does it affect grading decisions, though? I've heard that sRGB is more forgiving of saturation adjustments near the end of the range.

That makes no sense at all...


The only variation is as I said - a small (and virtually irrelevant) gamma alteration.
