The X-Rite ColorMunki Display is a calibration and profiling system that accurately portrays on your display / projector the color in your original picture or digital file. ColorMunki makes it quick and easy for you to calibrate and profile your displays. It features an advanced and ergonomic multi-functional measurement device, as well as easy-to-use software with simple one-click presets or wizard-driven options for more control.

The ColorMunki Display incorporates advanced filter and optical systems, fast measurement speed and unrivaled color accuracy on all modern display technologies, including LED and Wide Gamut LCDs. It's also spectrally calibrated, which makes it field-upgradeable to support future display technologies. ColorMunki's ergonomic design incorporates 3 functions - ambient light measurement, monitor profiling, and projector profiling - into 1 sleek, compact and fully integrated device with no parts for you to misplace. A custom-designed RGB filter set provides accurate color measurements, while the optical design allows for high rates of repetition on the same display and across different display types for more consistent color matching. There's even a rotating diffuser arm that can be used as a stand for table top projector profiling, ambient light measurement, or as a cover for instrument optics. The conveniently integrated tripod mount is great for projector profiling in larger venues.

The software features both 'Easy' and 'Advanced' options, so you can choose the one that's right for you. The wizard-driven interface guides you through the profiling process in small, easy-to-follow steps. No knowledge of color science is required - "Easy" mode is as simple as pushing a button, while "Advanced" mode provides additional pre-defined options for those users who want more color control. Before and after images show instant results and the handy profile reminder notifies you when it is time to re-profile your display. The on-screen help guides and videos are easy to understand and follow, so there are no extra manuals needed.

The Ambient Light Measurement tool automatically determines the optimum display luminance for comparing prints to your display, based on a measurement of the lighting conditions where the prints will be viewed. Ambient Light Smart Control lets you choose whether you want ColorMunki to automatically adjust your profile or simply notify you as ambient light conditions change. Flare Correct measures and compensates for reduced contrast ratios caused by flare light (glare) falling on the surface of your display. By accurately measuring your effective display contrast ratio, ColorMunki gives you a more precise display profile.

Intelligent Iterative Profiling is an adaptive technology that measures and analyzes the color capabilities of each unique display, in order to provide maximum accuracy every time you profile. The Automatic Display Control (ADC) feature adjusts your display's hardware to speed up its operation, eliminating manual adjustments--so there's less work for you.

Note! Testing is still being conducted with plasma displays to try to correct one or more reported issues. ColorMunki may not work on plasma displays. Also note that the ColorMunki software can be downloaded from a site even though discs are included.

    I use this display calibration device to make sure my monitor is showing me accurate colors before I start doing color grading in adobe premiere cs5.5 and after effect cs5.5 via the color finesse plug-in. It was quick to setup and calibrate. It seems my monitor (LG Flatron W3000H) needed a lot more red and contrast, and I had to lower the brightness of a third.

    I like :
    -Straightforward installation/calibration
    -checks for ambient lighting every X minutes

    So far I really like this tool.

    I took a quick picture of the Colormunki with my cellphone to show where I'm using it. It is working on my editing/color correction PC. It will flash a few times every X minutes to check ambient lighting and renew the monitor profile.

    I loaded the latest version of the software and I tried to calibrate my monitors but kept getting error messages, it eventually worked. I tried to calibrate my laptop monitor and got the same thing. It seemed to work one out of 5-10 tries. I looked for some solutions on line and learned that there may be some problems working with Mavericks. I contacted X-Rite customer support, but they would not respond to my questions unless I registered the product - but B&H policy is that they will not accept returns if the product is registered (which makes sense) my annoyance is with X-Rite being stingy with their support. I decided not to mess with it any more and sent it back. I do like X-Rite's Colorchecker Passport but the ColorMunki is a no go for me and I would not recommend it.

        Comments about X-Rite ColorMunki Display:

        Well I was a little intimidated when I purchased this (along with the color checker passport (package deal)).I thought it would be a long convoluted process but it was so easy, I felt foolish. For anyone the least bit serious about color management for their editing and printing, this is a must.

                    Very easy to use. Tutorial videos are handy to verify you are doing it correctly. I've used this for a while. Broke my other one and just bought a new ColorMunki Display without looking at any others. When you find something that works this great why keep looking?

                      I've been using this product for about 2 weeks, and it has been my first piece of color calibration hardware. The product is nicely built and is easy to use, and it absolutely has made a big difference to my photography. I am an amateur, so the pleasure of using the device and seeing my prints match the screen is much more important to me than absolute accuracy and reproducibility. I am not sure what one can buy if one spends a lot more or a lot less money, but this is absolutely worth the step up from software-only calibration. I'm glad I bought it, and would do so again.

                          Easy to use. Great results. If you do work in digital film or photography, it's all about the final image. You can't know that you have the best image until you have a screen that is displaying a true representation of your work. It is an indespensible tool at a very reasonable cost for what it does.

                                It was simple to install after downloading the latest version. The 'easy' set up option was simple and effective to pull down the brightness of my screen.

                                However, to maximise the functionality of the tool, I'd like to have more info on the options in the 'advanced' setup - e.g. what are the differences does D55, D50, D65 etc.

                                I've been using a different color calibrator system for many years, but I haven't been thrilled with its results. I bought the ColorMunki Display and it has made a big difference. The only obvious difference is that the ColorMunki not only measures the display color and brightness, but it also measures the ambient light and flare of your work area. I'm anxious to see what kind of difference this will make on my next prints.

                                    I'm using the Display to calibrate the screen for photo review in lightroom and photoshop. I'm now seeing pictures like i've never seen. On the flip side, i think my monitor is limiting the image quality. I'm also playing a game that became very dark after calibration (diablo 3) because it does not use the desktop gamma. I've switched it to windowed full screen, it's ok now.

                                    As an amateur enthusiast, I simply wanted an easy to use calbration tool for my desk top monitor so that anything I print matches what I see on my computer screen when I edit in post processing. This fits the bill perfectly.

                                          I have to say, that it does take a few times with various settings to get the right result. I read so many different conflicting suggestions for what to use and how, that I had to try combinations of them all to find the closest result but I did get it. I'm amazed at how close I *thought* my iMac already was, but was not. I do highly recommend this product!

                                                  It is easy to install, I think it took less than 15 mins. After my monitor calibrated, the photos I got back from a professional lab are almost as same as the monitor.

                                                  Another thing I like Color-munki display more than the other brands, it is because you can calibate up to 4 devices, the other brands are only for 1 device.

                                                  Lastly, before you install this software, make sure that you go to their website and download the latest version. The software it comes with is so outdated.

                                                        When I replaced my old Apple flat screen monitor with an Eizo professional monitor for photographic use, the old Huey calibrator I had been using would not upgrade for the new system. B&H recommended the Color Munki as the one to get, and now I know why.

                                                        Installation of software was simple. Hardware requires a powered USB port. There was one for that pour pose on my Eizo monitor.

                                                        To calibrate, simply hang the device over the monitor and let the padded end rest against the surface of the screen at the spot marked, and run the software. The directions carry a warning to be sure that the device lies flat and there is no light leaking from any side. In reality, this was simple to do. A well-designed counterweight on the cable is adjustable for any size monitor, and it's a simple matter to line the device up with the pattern on the screen and let the weight hang off the back. Then tell the computer to calibrate and colors flash on the screen while the device records and builds a profile. It takes about 5 minutes. Remove the device from the screen and close the software; you're done.

                                                        Unlike my old Huey there are no judgments to make about how many bands are showing - no judgments at all. Once calibrated the physical controls on the Eizo monitor were locked so that I could not accidentally change screen brightness or color and spoil the calibration. After calibration the print colors matched the screen to the degree the color space permitted.

                                                        After calibration the device can be left on your desk and connected via USB, and it will measure ambient room light and readjust so that the monitor stays perceptually accurate. After calibrating, my prints were true to the mage on the screen. The software can be set to remind you to recalibrate at personally determined intervals.

                                                          Ran my first ever monitor calibration with the ColorMunki and it was glitch free!! There was a subtle change in the monitor's color and luminosity after the procedure. My first prints after the calibration are pending at this time, but I am hopeful!

                                                            Worked perfectly for calibrating my iMac. I am very happy with the results!
