EIZO Announces its Collaboration with SpectraCal to Provide Calibration and Direct-Load 3D LUT Support on ColorEdge Monitors

Cypress, CA, February 5, 2014 – EIZO Inc. announced the support of a new calibration technology within SpectraCal’s CalMAN software for calibrating and loading 3D LUTs to EIZO’s ColorEdge monitors.

coloredgeWith CalMAN’s new support for the ColorEdge monitors, the latest version of their software can be used for both monitor calibration and 3D LUT (three-dimensional look up table) creation.

The EIZO ColorEdge monitors with built-in colorimeters also act as a pattern generator for CalMAN.

“Because EIZO supplies all the hardware, CalMAN 5.3 is literally all you need for an effective calibration solution,” explained SpectraCal’s Director of Marketing, Joshua Quain.

“It’s the wave of the future,” added Derek Smith, SpectraCal Founder and Chief Technical Officer.

EIZO ColorEdge Monitors are the first monitors for what CalMAN is calling “direct-load 3D LUTs” – wherein 3D LUT calibrations are written directly to the device, eliminating the need for intermediary software. This new capability within CalMAN for loading LUT calibrations directly to the connected monitor is the first of its kind. No other calibration software is yet able to communicate with connected devices in this way.

EIZO and SpectraCal partnered to develop CalMAN’s new capabilities. Hiroshi Nagai, EIZO’s Global Product Manager, complimented SpectraCal on the new technology:  “We’re pleased to see SpectraCal bringing the power of their software to our monitors. We saw the need in the market for a joint solution that makes it easier for a user to keep their colors accurate and consistent on video applications.”

Support for EIZO ColorEdge monitors is available with version 5.3 of CalMAN Studio and is available for download from SpectraCal’s website:
