JVC Introduces Monitor Calibration Software
July 18, 2008
JVC is now offering monitor calibration software for its DT-V professional monitors.
The software lets users adjust color temperature, gamma curves and luminance levels to accommodate specific application needs. It’s free for owners of JVC’s 17-inch, 20-inch and 24-inch DT-V monitors.
All JVC professional studio monitors are shipped from the JVC factory in Japan and are precisely calibrated at 6500K and 2.2 gamma correction. Manual adjustments include a unique backlight adjustment, and when combined with very high native contrast ratio, enable close matching of black levels to reference CRT monitors for critical viewing and color matching applications.
The software is compatible with X-Rite and Minolta color probes (purchased separately) and allows the user to re-calibrate DT-V series professional monitors to custom luminance levels, color temperature and gamma curves. Monitor calibration data can be saved and re-applied to groups of monitors to achieve uniform color reproduction throughout the entire studio facility. Multiple color profiles including factory calibration settings can be saved and re-applied if required.
The software allows users to load and save adjustment-data/adjustment-profiles, measure and indicate the maximum and minimum luminance, and automatically adjust the white balance and gamma correction.
“We’re constantly improving our technology to accommodate customers in critical viewing situations that require the most precise color and image quality available,” said Edgar Shane, general manager for engineering at JVC Professional Products Co. “With our monitors, color differences aren’t an issue.”
The software is available to registered DT-V Series monitor customers at pro.jvc.com/calibrate.
