• I am new to DisplayCal and struggling a bit to understand it all.  Yes! I have read the documentation. But maybe I’m just dumb.

    Can anyone tell me how exactly to read the results?  Was it a good calibration or not? I don’t want to go into crazy deep detail.  I just want to know if I’ve gotten things horribly wrong or not.

    My newly created pr…[Read more]

  • So you try gamma 1-5 preset on OSD and get the one taht behaves close to what you want.

    I managed to figure this out and have found that setting 3 is gamma 2.23.  4 is Gamma 2.4.  I am wondering now, because I am using the Leaming LUT ProII in my workflow for my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4k, if I should be working in gamma 2.4.  The recommended wo…[Read more]

  • Hi RenS.

    If you read through all the posts, you will note that I have replaced this monitor with the BenQ EW3270U.  I just couldn’t deal with the constant issues with profiling this monitor.  I’m way happier with the Ben Q.  Although I will say that viewing too close is an issue.  By the looks of it, you want to be at least 3 feet away.

  • I do not seem to be able to perform a verification… The button at the bottom is greyed out: see attached screenshot 1

    Or: when you can check the box: “show profile information”, after profiling – is this the verification document?  I have attached these results in attachments 2 & 3.  Can you tell me if I am on the right track?  I have no id…[Read more]


    Just care about left side measured gamma in HTML report. Choose the clostest OSD setting to your target gamma.
    You can use HCFR too.

    What is HCFR? And how do I know what the closest OSD setting is?  Are you talking about the 1-5 “gamma” settings on my BenQ?  So as you instructed above, I should measure these with DisplayCal and then choose the o…[Read more]

  • Thanks Vincent,

    Ok, I understand. I’ll measure them tomorrow.  But do I measure these with the currently active icc profile installed?

    And same question goes for calibration.  Just to confirm: when you calibrate and profile: It does not matter what your display’s icc profile is in systems preferences/displays/colour.  Correct?

    Is there li…[Read more]

  • Great news today.  My nice new EW3270U has just arrived.

    I’m about to calibrate it.  I have your recommendation of correction. But I am unsure of a setting in the monitor.  There are 5 levels of “gamma”.  The factory setting is at 3.  There is no indication in the manual of what this is exactly.  Would you have any idea?

    And do I calibrate it wh…[Read more]

  • Sorry, I did mean the PD3200U model.

    What would be the reason for choosing the P3 alternative?  Wider gamut.  Future-proofing for P3 and HDR workflow?

    Why does this monitor avoid the disadvantages of a wide-gamut monitor issues discussed previously in your replies?

    I only view my monitor from straight on, so viewing angles are not so i…[Read more]

  • Thanks again Vincent

    I’m not sure why you keep mentioning “photo work”.  I work primarily in video.

    So I am going to purchase a BenQ PD3400U.  From your suggestions and what is available here and in my price range, I think this is the best solution for me.  Do you think it is the right choice?   Or is there any other monitor in those you sugg…[Read more]

  • It can be good enough but for photo work. Just ensure that visually uniformity is OK when UC on.

    Did you mean when UC is off?

    Since for rpinting & such contrast is not usually a problem, just use GPU to get your desired whitepoint. You have an AMD, those card have high bidepth luts & dithering so even through an 8bit DVI connection & whitepoint…

  • Thanks so much for all your information, Vincent.  I have had this monitor for a year and I really had no idea just how inappropriate it was for semi-accurate colour work.  I’ve never been happy with the colours, but I’d always thought that was more to do with my colour management.

    I am essentially feeling like a replacement monitor is the only r…[Read more]

  • In latest news, I have calibrated and profiled this display, with UC off and one of the above profiles active before calibration.  Target WP of 6500

    I would say that that red/magenta over-exaggeration is still there.  And overall the contrast looks actually a little worse (less contrasty) compared to a previous calibration with i1Studio. A…[Read more]

  • These are the two different profiles that look like they may be native profiles for this monitor:


  • If you meant colormunki display, it’s a colorimeter and you can (should) choose a suitable colorimeter correction.
    UP2*16D models looks like an hybrid more close to the newer WLED PFS phosphor. There are user made corrections at 3nm that show typical red channel signature spikes but with a very raised floor:

    1. This warning can be ignored for a video monitor that is not part of the desktop.

    I’m coming up on the same error whilst calibrating my reference monitor through resolve.  I am using a decklink card.

    My questions is, when you say “a video monitor that is not part of the desktop”.  Is this referring to a video monitor that is connected t…[Read more]

  • I have been doing a bit of looking around, and I have not been able to find a definitive answer to this first question, but it looks like this monitor is a GB-LED-backlit Phosphor LCD.  So should I be using the “Correction” setting “LCD GB-r-LED/RG Phospohor LED family…?

    As well, I am still learning about calibration (3 years down the track!),…[Read more]

  • Thanks Vincent,

    The first thing I came across was the Radeon’s configuration software, however, I’m on a Mac, so I don’t know how to access this.

    Yes, I’ll be using DisplayCAL from now on.

  • I’ve calibrated the following displays with a Colormunki on OSX 10.15 using i1Studio, but I’ve been unhappy with the results and functionality, so I’m giving DisplayCal a try.

    DELL UP2716D – HDMI to GPU (RX580)
    DELL U2414H – mDP to GPU (RX580)

    Whilst calibrating I noticed that the “input colour format” on the screens’ hardware settings…[Read more]
