The X-Rite ColorMunki Display and ColorChecker Passport Bundle provides you with both the ColorMunki calibration and profiling system and the ColorChecker Passport for reducing processing time and improving quality control in your RAW file workflow.
ColorMunki 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 3 functions - ambient light measurement, monitor profiling, and projector profiling - into 1 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.
ColorChecker Passport streamlines your workflow by letting you quickly and easily capture precise, true color, immediately enhancing portraits and landscapes while preserving color control and consistency throughout all phases of the process, from capture to edit. Any photographer seeking more accurate, consistent color and creative versatility should consider the Passport as a viable solution.
