NEC Multisync P221W profiling with DTP94


#1

After my Eizo CG21 died, I bought 2 new NEC MultiSync 221W and the Spectraview II Software.
First when I calibrated the displays everything is fine, but the result is worse;- in the “rgb shadow checker” from your site I can see the “12”, the “11” I can’t:-(
I tried several times, with several options, but same results.
I am calibrating with the DTP94 from x-rite on a MacBook Pro with OSX 10.6.8.

With my PowerMac G5 with 10.5.8 I had to downgrade Spectraview II to 1.1.9, and while calibrating the software freezed several times:-(

My problem is, that the Spectraview II Software is official available only in the US, and nobody can give me support here in Germany…

Best regards,
Richard

PS: On my good old Eizo F77S I can see even the “1” on the shadow checker(!)…

You are using the Spectraview II software. correct?

Technically, the DTP94 is supported but is a very old instrument. I think it was first made and remained unchanged since 2004 or 2005.

Can you beg or borrow an Eye1 pro to try it?


#3

What presets should be used in the Spectraview II software to calibrate properly for Piezography printing?

I am looking for an i1 pro.

I could not upload a screenshot (190KB-jpg?) with the results and settings of the calibration. I tried also with the “png” file…
Sorry, I could not find where the limitations are described for uploading pictures here in the forum

png is a supported attachment, and the size is not too big… Please go here for instructions related to attaching files to this support forum: http://www.inkjetmall.com/tech/content.php?152-How-to-attach-images-to-this-forum

Now it seems that the upload works;- thanks Dana:-))

We use 5000k light boxes adjacent to our displays - so we calibrate to 5000k. 5000k is also the white point at which humans are best able to judge color differences. We see this white point as “achromatic” or neutral - neither too warm nor too cool - neither more red, blue or green. So it is preferred - but you should also have a 5000k viewing environment in your studio. We use the Print setting rather than Photo setting. We set the Gamma to 2.20 - and the brightness is at about 85. THen we let the software calibrate it.

Thank you, Jon:-) When my my new i1 pro comes, I will try it again.

I realized just a minimal difference between the calibration with i1 pro and the DTP94:-( I tried several settings, and also the “german” software, the spectraview profiler 5 (originally from basiccolor), and also software calibration.
And I suppose that with first number the “11” visible in the “rgb checker”, this is not a monitor for piezography printing;- ok, with 160cd I can see also the “8”, but I wish to have a monitor also for softproofing…
Have you guys (and girls, of course…) experience with the calibration of the NEC PA241W?
