Monitor Calibration
  • Supports are contemporary monitor types, including LED, plasma, RG phosphor, OLED, and LCD.
  • Complete control of white point, luminance, contrast ratio, gamma, and other measurements.
  • Support for popular broadcast video standards, including NTSC, PAL SECAM, Rec. 709, Rec. 2020, and DCI-P3.
  • Ambient Light Measurement automatically determines the optimum display luminance for comparing prints to your display, based on a measurement of the lighting conditions where prints will be viewed.
  • Flare Correct measures and adjusts your display profile for reduced contrast ratios caused by flare or glare falling on surface of display.
  • Intelligent Iterative Profiling is an adaptive technology that produces optimized color accuracy results each time you profile.
  • Automatic Display Control (ADC) technology automatically adjusts your display's brightness, backlighting, contrast, and color temperature to speed up the profiling process and eliminate the need for manual adjustments.
  • It is possible to set the White Point from predefined values, custom X/Y values, based on measurement of ambient light, based on measurement of another display, or from previously measured values.
  • Multiple display support maintains color matched consistency and up to four different displays.

Projector Calibration
  • Quickly and accurately create projector profiles with intelligent adaptive profiling technology for greater color accuracy from each unique projector.

Works well on smart and less smart monitors. Cord is a little short for the job, but otherwise a reliable tool.

So easy to use

I am very happy with the set up ad ease of use. I print high-end phots and use various papers, each with its own ICC profile. So it makes sense to profile your monitor regularly. But: how would I know this actually works? Before and after views of my Mac monitor seem the same. So I use this technology because I am told to do so, I like the X-Rite and hope it makes a difference.

This is a replacement for a very old i1. It has gotten my monitor back in agreement with my printer.

It does the job :)

This unit was recommended by one of the online salesmen of BH who, as always, was super kind. It really does the job. In only a few minutes your screen will be perfectly calibrated. Simple, fast and efficient. Thank you again BH Photo team!

Great calibration tool

By Kevin

I bought this to calibrate a high quality monitor I'm going to buy, that has terrible factory settings. But before I bought that expensive monitor, I wanted to calibrate my not so good monitors. I seamlessly calibrated both my 1080p monitors, and feel ready for my new one. Overall great tool, as it was really accurate. I can't speak to the app experience as I used DisplayCAL instead. I did notice some differences between Mac and Linux-I have two different computers hooked up to the same monitors. So I just picked Linux as the one to calibrate. Otherwise I'd have to change the monitor settings for Mac, which would throw Linux out of whack. Minor grievance.

Didn't power on :-(

Purchased the device in 2020 and finally decided to use it with my new monitor that I used for photo edited etc. However, when I tried to use it, it didn't connect to the computer. No light, meaning it's not receiving power. Essentially a brand new device is now a paper weight. Maybe look into the newest versions of this device for your needs just in case there's more defective ones from this batch.

Didn't work for me

I got this to replace my Colormunki and was disappointed. Maybe I misunderstood--I thought it was a printer calibrator. Nevertheless, my computer would not recognize the device at all. I am returning it.

I'm not a pro and can't dedicate a dark, or consistently lighted room to editing. Can I set multiple profiles to use depending on current conditions (daylight, night with lights on, etc.)?
Asked by: Joseph
Yes. I have several profiles created for photo-day, photo-cloudy, and photo-night as well as video-day, video-cloudy, and video-night. Once created, you switch between the various ones in your operating system "monitor" preferences

Can I use this to calibrate my external monitors for my cameras? My 5" and 7" monitors?
Asked by: Muhammad
As long as your monitors have the ability to get a signal from a computer (for use with the Xrite software), in a resolution of 1024x768, and have contrast and color controls that can be manually set, the X-Rite i1Display Studio Colorimeter should work fine for calibration of your monitors.
