I recently pruchased the Display 2 package to calibrate my CRT. I went through the whole process and my monitor now looks horrible…it is contrasty and bright to the point of giving me a headache after two minutes of viewing. More specifically, it looks like the monitor cannot produce real black…where the screen should be black (even within the Greta interface) it is way too bright.
Here’s where I think I have a problem: when going through the contrast and brightness steps, the system is recommending 100% contrast and 75% brightness. I can’t imagine this is correct. My white point is set at 6500K and my luminance is at 100. I’ve used the RBG guns on my monitor and using the Greta tool sliders I’ve hit both those targets dead on.
Have I done something incorrectly? What could be going on? For more detail see this discussion at the fred miranda forums: fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/244933
You’ll need a log-on.
Thanks in advance.
