NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display today announced SpectraView, a new color calibration solution for its line of CRT monitors. The company explained that the calibration technology makes adjustments to the monitor's electronics using the DDC/CI communications channel. In this way, SpectraView can control the RGB gains directly, providing better luminance, black colors and more accurate calibration compared with systems that depend only on the video card.
SpectraView utilizes a tri-stimulus colorimeter and custom software. It incorporates three 24-bit analog-to-digital converters that measure color at five measurements per second. The calibrator's use of three color sensors provides for more accurate calibration because it's measuring individual red, green and blue phosphor readings, according to the manufacturer.
Features in the SpectraView technology include:
NEC-Mitsubishi expects to begin shipping SpectraView-equipped monitors in early December through its authorized reseller channel. Prices will range from US$1,149 to $1,749 depending on size and capabilities.
