Color Management for 3DCG

Calibration with ColorNavigator NX

In production settings, a monitor display needs to be calibrated according to a set standard. Furthermore, due to the changes that occur to monitors over time, it is necessary to measure the amount of change, approximately once a month, and correct it. Calibration software and a sensor (color measurement device) are used to perform this measurement. Let’s check the steps to calibrate using ColorNavigator NX and a built-in sensor or external color measurement device. For external measurement devices, X-Rite i1 Pro series or ColorMunki, etc. are recommended.

Step 1

After connecting your EIZO ColorEdge monitor to the computer, launch the ColorNavigator NX calibration software. Select Color Mode and set the type to Calibration. If there is no default profile Color Mode for reference, choose CAL. Click Edit in the lower right.1_CAL_edit.jpg
