Color Calibration

There are a few key factors to consider when determining whether a monitor meets your color-critical needs. They are color gamut, color depth, brightness, white point, and black level. Calibrating your monitor is necessary for color-critical work, and can help to deliver more accurate images. NEC's SpectraViewII provides hardware for a user-friendly calibration and can be customized for color gamut, white point, and gamma corrections, as well as other settings.
