GretagMacbeth Eye-One Display Solutions

GretagMacbeth has announced an all-new, high-end professional version of its award-winning Eye-One Display 2 monitor calibration solution. Eye-One Display 2 is said to set a new standard, delivering unparalleled functionality for high-end professional results. At the same time, GretagMacbeth is pleased to announce the new Eye-One Display LT for budget conscious professionals just getting started with color management.

Both of the new Eye-One Display solutions feature the professional Eye-One Display measurement device. The new functionality in the Eye-One solutions is a result of the new Eye-One Match 3.6 software that is included with the devices, making it ideal for both new users as well as existing Eye-One Display 2 and Eye-One Pro users who want to gain more from their investment.

Eye-One Display 2 provides enhanced Workgroup Match capabilities for anyone who needs to match multiple monitors - either within their own studio or in a collaborative production environment including their customers and suppliers - to ensure consistent on-screen color viewing throughout the production workflow. Calibration parameters can be extracted from an existing GretagMacbeth monitor profile and used as a baseline for all of the monitors in a workgroup - thus ensuring the highest level of consistency from monitor to monitor. Users can also define custom gamma, white point and luminance settings for their profiles to meet their exact requirements.

With Eye-One Display 2, users can utilize the Ambient Check and Match functions to take precise measurements of the ambient light in their environment to ensure that their standard viewing conditions remain consistent - ideal for professional designers and photographers who want an accurate match between their light box and their monitor. And now users can incorporate ambient light data into their profiles for a better correlation between their monitor and studio or any other viewing conditions, such as a gallery where their images will be displayed.

Eye-One Display 2 also provides a number of new tools to help speed the profiling process and help users evaluate the quality of their profiles and monitor, including Push-Button Calibration, a fully automatic calibration for popular monitors, a before and after image for assessing profile quality, as well as Validation - monitor trend data which helps users track the overall performance of their monitors. Current Eye-One Display 2 owners can benefit from all the new Eye-One Display 2 enhancements by simply downloading the new Eye-One Match 3.6 software.

The new Eye-One Display LT solution provides the perfect entry point for professionals who are investing in monitor calibration for the first time. It enables a basic set of functionality within the new version of Eye-One Match 3.6 that provides users with the possibility to calibrate their monitors and adjust the color on-screen with a few simple clicks. Features include push-button monitor calibration, profile creation using predefined gamma and white point settings, the ability to check ambient light conditions and a before and after image for assessing profile quality. If a user wants to upgrade their Eye-One Display LT to an Eye-One Display 2, they can do so at any time simply by purchasing a license code to enable the full Eye-One Match 3.6 functionality.
