Product Highlights
  • Compatible with select color sensors and NEC Display monitors.

Use the SpectraView II Display Calibration Software from NEC in conjunction with compatible color sensors and NEC display monitors to ensure accurate display calibration. The software is compatible with a number of NEC displays and a variety of color sensors including Eye-One, ColorMunki, OptixXR, Spyder 2, and Spyder 3 sensors. The software supports multiple calibration sets, allowing you to quickly switch between two or more calibration settings based on your needs. The software is Windows and Mac OS compatible, and includes network support in Windows.

Automatic Calibration
SpectraView communicates with the display monitors using Display Data Channel - Command Interface (DDC/CI) which is a two-way communications link between the video graphics adapter and display monitor using the normal video signal cable. No extra cables are necessary. All adjustments to the monitor settings are done automatically using this communications link. It is not necessary to manually configure the monitor as all of the necessary settings are made by the software.
10- or 12-bit Internal Look Up Tables (LUTs)
Each LCD display monitor supported by SpectraView II features three internal-10 or 12-bit LUTs (depending on the model). These tables allow very precise adjustments to be made to the display's Tone Response Curve without reducing the number of displayable colors or introducing color banding artifacts.
Multiple Calibration Sets
Different display monitor calibrations can be instantly loaded allowing quick and easy switching between different calibration settings without the need to re-calibrate the display. Each time a calibration set is loaded, the necessary monitor settings and ICC/ColorSync profiles are automatically updated.
Informative
At the end of each display monitor calibration, an information window is displayed which shows the results of the calibration and includes a wealth of information about the display such as the measured color gamut, grayscale color tracking, Delta-E, and luminance values. Additional information about the display monitor such as the model name, serial number and the total number of hours that it has been in use are also displayed.
Calibration Status Validation
SpectraView will query each calibrated monitor to see if any controls have changed since the last calibration. If anything has changed, the previous calibrated state can be restored automatically.
Flexible
SpectraView provides many features and options that make it flexible enough to be used in a large variety of applications, including full DICOM support for medical imaging. The display luminance can be adjusted to either a specific value or to the maximum possible that the display can achieve.
Network Support (Windows Only)
SpectraView integrates with the NEC NaViSet Administrator network software (available separately) to provide remote network access and monitoring of display monitors. NaViSet Administrator is able to read, display, and log the current calibration settings and status of displays on a LAN. This feature is particularly useful for large installations where central monitoring and asset management is needed.
Monitor Locking
Once calibrated the OSD (On Screen Display) controls for the display monitors can be locked to prevent accidental or unauthorized adjustment which may invalidate the calibrated state of the monitor.
Monitor Profiling
After calibration, the display is automatically profiled and highly accurate ICC/ColorSync color profiles are generated and automatically registered with the Color Management System. These profiles use the Bradford Chromaticity Adaptation matrix.
Colorimeter Function
The software features a Colorimeter function which allows direct measurements to be taken by the color sensor and the results displayed in a variety of different formats.
Ambient Light Measurement Function
Allows measurements to be taken of the ambient light of the viewing environment surrounding the display monitor. This is useful in determining the optimal viewing conditions for the display monitor so that the ambient light level and color do not influence the viewing of images on the screen.

      SpectraView II with ColorSpyder3

          Comments about NEC SpectraView II Display Calibration Software:

          I ordered the SpectraView II software for my NEC PA-271 after learning that it would work with my existing ColorSpyder (if with limitations), which meant I did not have to invest in another piece of hardware. The SpectraView II worked *better* with the ColorSpyder3 than the software that came with the ColorSpyder - the ColorSpyder software refused to recognize the hardware unless it was plugged directly into the computer, but the SpectraView II tolerated a hub in between.

          The software can calibrate just about everything on my NEC monitor, and was fairly straightforward to use.

          It would be nice if it supported non-NEC monitors, even to a minimal extent. It would make it easier to calibrate non-NEC monitors as close as possible to the NEC one on the same system.

            I bought this to calibrate a new NEC PA271w-BK monitor. As I already have both Data Color Spyder 4 Elite and X-rite Color Munki Photo hardware I only bought the software. I've been using the Spyder and it works great with this software. Calibrates my monitor to match my prints. Very pleased. Very easy to use.

                    Works hand in glove with NEC hardware to provide robust, flexible monitor calibration. You can save and switch between profiles for different conditions (i.e. day and night). For appropriate NEC monitors, much better than generic calibration software.

                        Used with NEC Multisync monitors this makes calibration easy. I used i1 Match with my last monitor. That was also a great solution, but SpectraView enables hardware calibration, which is more accurate and stable.
