The black 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 three functions - ambient light measurement, monitor profiling, and projector profiling - into one 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.

    ColorMunki Display (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 524.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Error Messages! Sent it Back 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you take photography seriously - BUY I currently use this product with my Macbook pro. I own a very nice SLR camera and only buy the best lenses. After months of frustration with my photo prints I decided to purchase this product. The prints, from professional printing companies, looked terrible before purchasing this. You have to BUY this if you spend hours editing. Editing on a screen that is not calibrated is simply a waste of time. You spend all the time working on the photo only to have it not match when printed (which to me is very frustrating in itself). If you own the best equipments, are serious about photography and expect the best end result you NEED this!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool and must have! I use the Munki on my new 27 iMac and it works great. I couldn't decide if I needed this or the i1 ProDisplay at first but after much reading and watching some webinars on X-rite's site I realized I didn't need the extras. They both produce the same results (awesome) as far as monitor calibration. I came from another top rated and popular calibration tool but I just couldn't get consistency with them. I could do three calibrations in a row and could literally see slight adjustments in each run. I haven't had that issue with the Munki at all. I love it and now feel more confident in my decision and the tool and my workflow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny! I'm a photographer who cares a great deal about the quality of my prints! I'd been told by a friend that the ColorMunkie was fantastic because it's super easy to use and works wonderfully, so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm SO impressed! It made a huge difference and worked without any issues from the very beginning. My favorite part of it is that I can keep it plugged in and as the lighting changes around my computer through out the course of the day, it will alter my screens calibration so that I can still see an accurate picture on my screen. I don't worry anymore about what my prints are going to look like. I'd recommend this to everyone!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prevent your prints being darker than display on monitor This tool helps you to reduce the brightness of your monitor to the correct level so that the image as seen on the monitor, will be the same as when it's printed - not only for colour but specifically for 'brightness'.� Most monitors are set too bright and because they are backlit, a lot of detail is displayed in shadows. However the printing paper isn't backlit, so much of the shadow details will be lost during printing if the post processing is done on a monitor that is too bright. The ambient light adjustment helps minimise this problem. I'm now confident that my prints will look the same as displayed on my monitor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really needed this. Since I bought my iMac I hadn't calibrated my monitor and the prints looked just ok. But I had a calibrated monitor in the past, and knew that I really needed to purchase a device like this to really get my work to be as good as it could be. I did some research and found that the ColorMunki had great reviews and while I had used a different brand before I thought I would try the ColorMnki. I am so happy that I did. It was easy to install once I downloaded the latest software to my computer. I had to download software because the disk that came with it didn't work. That didn't take much time to fix, and once down loaded it worked like a charm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice ambient lighting awareness 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than Spyder 3 but some limits I am an amateur who got serious about processing and, in short, you need to calibrate your monitor. I used some on-line tools but nothing works as well as these automated systems.Beware, if you don't have a pro monitor or an older one, these tools can't do everything required like with my Gateway 24 FPD2485W. I used a Spyder 3 and the results were really way off. With ColorMunki, I had to uncheck ADC and then set brightness myself. I stumbled on this as the instructions are not too good here. Further, there are some preferences I don't understand, again, because of the poor manual.All in all, it worked way better than the Spyder 3 and my monitor and photography processing are better for it.
