The CalMAN Studio with VirtualForge and C6 Colorimeter Bundle from SpectraCal lets you calibrate your reference monitor to ensure that it conforms to industry standards. This is a quality-assurance solution for broadcast, production, and post-production professionals who rely on accurate reference monitors to create, evaluate, develop, and edit color-critical motion picture and television broadcast content. The bundle features downloads for CalMAN Studio Monitor Calibration Software, VirtualForge Software Pattern Generator, and the SpecraCal C6 Colorimeter.
CalMAN Studio utilizes 17x17x17 3D LUT (three-dimensional look-up table) technology to match calibrated displays to a target colorspace, such as Rec.709 or DCI P3. A 64-bit Virtual Cube manages calibration correction data during the 3D LUT dynamic profiling process for increased calibration speed and flexibility. The software runs on Windows.
To get reference patterns onto your screen to check, evaluate, calibrate, and profile your reference monitor, the VirtualForge app is provided. Connect VirtualForge to CalMAN over your network and the right pattern will automatically appear on screen when you need it. VirtualForge installs on a Mac computer and outputs patterns through SDI/HDMI output cards or external thunderbolt devices.
To actually measure the colors from you reference monitor, use the SpectaCal C6 Colorimeter, which can measure light output from flat panel and projector display technologies, including plasma, LCD, CCFL, LED, and OLED.
Note: Bundle requires access to a supported video output adapter, as well as Mac OS and Windows (run on two separate computers or with a virtual Windows machine), as CalMAN requires Windows and VirtualForge requires Mac OS.
