To make your life easier, you should get the Beamer Stand for $144. It will hold and position the Eye-One device consistently for you. You can concoct your own holder, but for $144 the holder is a custom fit and has adequate weighting.
That’s all you need. Here’s a link: <http://www.chromix.com/colorgear/shop/productdetail.cxsa?toolid=1026&-sepid=10449>
Since you have recently bought an Eye-One Photo, yes, it includes the Beamer software and will fully function (Much older versions of the Eye-One Photo do not include the Beamer software which must be bought separately for $279). Here’s a link to the software for older Eye-One Photo users: <http://www.chromix.com/colorgear/shop/productdetail.cxsa?toolid=1158&pid-10449>
The Beamer software is straight forward: Just follow the Beamer software steps and let it guide you through the process. Basically, it’s two steps. You’ll first measure the screen white point. Then you’ll measure the projector light output by placing the Eye-Onein the Beamer Holder and placing it in the light stream. The Beamer software sends different colored patches to your computer/projector, the Eye-One reads and then makes the software makes the profile.
I hope that helps. Otherwise, X-Rite has Tech support available, and our own Pat Herold in our CHROMiX Tech Support department is a real pro at profiling projectors with the Beamer.
