Anyone ever have a need to calibrate an LCD on a Powerbook G4? I’m using a Monaco Optix XR Pro. Actually, my main goal is to calibrate a 23" ACD that will be hooked up to it. That appears to have worked fine, although at gamma 2.2 and native white, I get a luminance of 206cd/m2 with moderate room light…a lot brighter than I expected.
Anyway, I notice when calibrating the Powerbook LCD that the Optix software will actually first determine the maximum usable brightness (a step apparently not necessary for the ACD) and then allow you to dial in the brightness based on room lighting. Trying to dial in the brightness is like hitting a moving target. And when all is said and done, I get a measley 74cd/m2, which next to the ADC looks pathetic. I’m not really concerned too much about being exact on the Powerbook, but something comparable to the ACD would be better. Any thoughts?
