JVC unveils free DT-V monitor calibration software
JVC’s new monitor calibration software provides DT-V professional monitor users with the flexibility to adjust color temperature, gamma curves and luminance levels to accommodate specific application needs.
The software is free for users who own JVC’s 17in, 20in and 24in 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 backlight adjustment, which when combined with high native contrast ratio enables close matching of black levels to reference CRT monitors for critical viewing and color matching applications.
In addition, JVC Monitor Calibration software is available free to registered JVC clients who purchased DT-V series monitors. The software is compatible with X-Rite and Minolta color probes (purchased separately) and allows the user to recalibrate DT-V series professional monitors to custom luminance levels, color temperature and gamma curves. Monitor calibration data can be saved and reapplied to groups of monitors.
The software is now available at http://pro.jvc.com/calibrate.
