An indispensable tool for any digital workflow, the Calibrite ColorChecker Display Plus is a digital color profiler that has become the go-to calibration system for photographers and filmmakers industry-wide.
Any professional working with industry grade color must ensure that the display they're seeing is a perfectly calibrated and profiled one. Without this level of accuracy, we are unable to conclusively say that the image we're viewing on a monitor, mobile screen, or projector matches the capture. The Display Pro gives enables users to calibrate their monitor's output to their exact specifications and save these as profiles to quickly change between them.
The system's ergonomic design incorporates three functions - ambient light measurement, monitor profiling, and projector profiling - into a very sleek, compact, and fully integrated device with no parts to misplace. A custom-designed RGB filter set provides accurate color measurements, while the optical design allows for high 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 tabletop projector profiling, ambient light measurement, or as a cover for instrument optics.

X-Rite partners with Calibrite to serve the global photo, video and content creation markets.

Calibration Software

The included ccProfiler software, supports HDR and video workflows while the ColorChecker Display Plus colorimeter has been designed for current and future high-luminance monitors making this the most capable and future proof solution available today.

Monitor Calibration

Editing and color grading video footage is growing by leaps and bounds and the necessity for accurate color representation on screen is even more paramount. The only way to edit video accurately is to view your footage accurately. Whether you're a filmmaker, photographer, or both, ColorChecker Display Plus uses advanced technologies to perfect your color throughout your production and post-production workflow, making sure that what you see is what you'll get.

Projector Calibration

Now your projected presentations can look the same as your monitor. Build an accurate projector profile in just minutes - it's as easy as building a monitor profile. The process takes all of the room conditions into consideration - projected colors, screen color and room lighting - so that you can be confident that your projected images are showing the way you intended.

Calibrite ColorCheck Display Plus Reviews

Rebranded X-Rite i1Display Pro Plus

By Justin
Rated 5 out of 5

Not much to say here that hasn't already been said about the X-rite i1Display Pro Plus. X-Rite spun off their consumer line to the Calibrite brand. That said, I used this ColorChecker Display Plus (ambiguous and silly model name) paired with Basiccolor Display Pro software (not included) and it worked flawlessly. I've read the included Calibrite software is terrible and have no intentions or need to try it. Basiccolor's Display Pro works wonderfully. I was able to correlate/calibrate the Calibrite ColorChecker using a Myiro-1 spectro (in the same way the obsolete DisplayCal/Argyll let you do). Worked perfect. Delta-E of around 0.03 after correction for the Calibrite, and then profiled both my monitors to an average Delta-E of around 0.5-0.7.

Great calibrator. Easy to use. True color file.

Worse than a waste of time for me

By Harry J

Short story - At least in my experience, I would give this 5 negative stars if I could for messing up my monitor color big time. Long story - I have used X-rite's i1 (eye-one) color match system for years, but (except from a site I never heard of) could not find drivers for it even on Windows update when I changed from a Windows 7 computer to a Windows 10 computer. I then decided to spend the money for the Calibrite ColorChecker Display Plus which arrived quickly and safely from B&H. I installed the software and the driver and twice tried to calibrated my monitors. Both times I was left with one monitor being off color and the other one an outright mess as if the gamma got messed up and it was running a really low bit depth color. I uninstalled the software but the colors remained the same and had to uninstall the monitors in device manager and reinstall them to get back to some type of normalcy. I then decided to give my older i1 system another try and for some reason Windows update found a driver for it that time. I quickly and painlessly calibrated the two monitors with the i1 system and the colors are dead on, and images crisp and realistic with good shadow and highlight detail. There is not a discernible difference between the two monitors when displaying the same image. My understanding is that the i1 and the Calibrite ColorChecker Display Plus both have X-rite roots, so why didn't they just provide an updated driver for the product that worked so well? The Calibrite ColorChecker software was quirky with one example being making some manual adjustments during calibration to get a pointer to the center of a type of software meter on the screen. The hardware adjustments on my monitors (not the software) ran from 0 to 100 and in some cases couldn't get the pointer in the software to move enough and in some cases the pointer would go from being all the way at the top of the scale to all the way at the bottom with only making a change of one step out of the possible 100. In closing I have dealt with B&H for probably 30 years or more and will continue to do so; none of this is their fault and I highly recommend them.

Good hardwear, awful software (and not secure) !

The hardware seems is the same as in X-Rite i1Display Pro Plus, just rebranded, it's not bad. The software to calibrate and profile is awful. First, and of very importance, it brings security holes to your operating system (at least I am on Windows) -- the installation process install two outdated and officially no supported software peaces, essential for functioning ccProfiler, with versions of 2008 and 2010 years !!! (C++ redistributable packages), and !!! with not the latest versions yet, with the versions with knows official vulnerabilities !!!, then device drivers have no digital signatures from the OEM !!! and windows tell me it's unsecure to install them !!! Second, there are too crazy many bugs in software, it crashes, it's too slow at times etc. It looks like they don't alter it since those 2008-2010, just minor modifications to look for the software alive for us to buy. Just Awful, will go again to SPyderX as their software much much stable, or to some freeware or third-party -- not to this bad software makers.

Not quite. Shoddy software ruins quality hardware.

For years, I've been getting good results calibrating my screens with my X-Rite i1 Pro 2 spectrophotometer despite the fact that it is really best suited for creating profiles for print rather than screen. With the receipt of a new MacBook Pro 2021 and its excellent HDR screen, I decided to pick up a new Color Checker Display Plus. I was hoping for both better profiles and a faster calibration process. Despite getting both, the process is so glitchy that I have to question the wisdom of holding onto it while I have the opportunity to get my money back. I'll start with the good. The Display Plus was able to create a perfect-to-the-last-decimal calibration of my HP Z32x Dreamcolor monitor. It's never looked better. And my three monitors, all with different backlight technologies, match better than they ever have. If this was all there were to the story, this device would get an A+. Sadly, there is more to the story. My MacBook Pro 2021's screen is extremely well calibrated from the factory. In combination with Apple's display controls, the Display Plus allows me to tweak the white point for an even more accurate result. But, as of the date of this review, that's where users should stop. A full calibration using the ccProfiler app actually reduces the color gamut of the monitor. According to a Calibrite rep, the company is actively working on this. Art is Right, an excellent YouTube channel hosted by an X-Rite Coloratti, provides the details on this situation as well as the most effective use of the colorimeter with the new MacBook Pro models. Unfortunately, it gets worse. I can confirm the reports in other reviews that the software is constantly crashing. It crashes after almost every calibration. And if Calibrite is working on the problem, it isn't obvious. The last time the software, currently v1.01 for Mac, was updated was a year ago. I also had problems with the colorimeter itself. My first use was calibrating the monitors at my office. I plugged in the Display Plus and everything worked fine, software aside. When I plugged it in a second time to calibrate the monitors at my home, nothing happened. Restarting ccProfiler, then my Mac, made no difference. I thought the device had died. Then I noticed a new button in the ccProfiler software. It reset the instrument, which then came to life and worked as expected (again, software aside). But really? I'm reduced to hoping the software doesn't crash while I'm trying to reset the hardware? This situation isn't close to acceptable. Despite the excellent results, I don't feel right keeping a device that is so half-baked that I feel lucky to get it working long enough to do its job. It's going back.

Product needs to go through a QA process

By Richard

After reading up on several websites about the importance of calibrating your monitors for photo editing, I was excited to pick up this product because it was touted as one of the best calibrators in the market over Spyder by many reviewers. When you are setting up the product, the manual directs you to Calibrite's website to download their proprietary software ccProfiler (for Display Pro and Display Plus). This is where I started to run into problems hence the rating that I am providing for the product. On both a 16-inch 2019 Macbook Pro running OSX 12.1 and separate machine running Windows 10, I found the software very frustrating to use. The software boots up slowly, sometimes doesn't detect the device/license and frequently crashes unexpectedly. When it does crash, if you try to boot up the software it won't load until you restart the computer. On Windows based computers, if you have multiple monitors and select the desired monitor that you want to calibrate, it won't let you and will target the wrong monitor even though the option to select both are there. I am not sure if the software fundamentally changed when Calibrite took over the product from X-Rite or if the software bugs are a result of the newer operating system versions but the product does feel like it needs to go through a more rigorous QA process. If your going to pay this much for a product, it should work better right out of the box. I will be returning this product and waiting a while longer for the company to work through the bugs.

It does the job

The ColorChecker is easy to use and does a great job of profiling my new BenQ SW321C monitor. I also have an Eizo CS2731 monitor that came with its own calibrator, and with the ColorChecker I can get the two monitors to agree almost exactly in their on screen colors. This product seems to perform as advertised. I haven't had any problems with it so far.

Works well, nice upgrade

I had some previous incarnations of this product (with different branding) and this works a lot like those, but the software seems to finally be a lot more stable. The most recent revision (1.3.17 as of this writing) works well with dual-monitor setup (each with it's own profile) and can have 3 custom configs.
