My understanding of the LCD technology is that the naitive white point of the monitor is determined by the backlight and any filter that may exist between it and the LCD itself.
This would lead me to belive that the white point can not be changed from it’s naitive state without darkening the display considerably. As the display attempts to filter (through the LCD itself) the appropriate wavelengths in order to lower (presumably) the color temperature.
Yet here I stand at a Sony LCD screen which has color temperature settings and even individual RG and B level controls. (Sony SDM S73)
Am I right in thinking that this is how it works, and that overall brightness (or contrast, I should say) would be lessened? If this is the case, the contrast ratio would change with white point, correct?
Thanks for indulging me… I’m trying to make a decision for a new monitor for my home system (no color critical tasks) and I would like an LCD but I want one I can get at least SOME simbalence of balanced color!
