I test a lot of products as part of an online community I run for 3d artists and have started to review displays. I’m pretty well versed with color management, but was looking to see if anyone knew of a software which can be used to measure/profile a display in it’s current state. I don’t want to profile a display after software calibrates it, I want to measure it’s performance before calibration. Specifically I’m interested in measuring out of the box performance (gamut, white point, black point etc.) For example, if I put a display into it’s sRGB mode how close is it really and how accurate is a display before any calibration out of the box.
I have an i1Pro & ColorMunki with Eye One Match, the New i1Profiler (which so far I can not get to work…support ticket pending), ColorThink, and SpectraView, but none have any features to do an automated measurement tool to do this. I can make individual spot measurements with many of these tool, but nothing automated. Does anyone know of a software which can do this? Or perhaps a tool to take spot measurements to build a profile which could be compared (Delta E) to another. I found a free app called Colorimetre HCFR, but I don’t know how accurate it is and has very little documentation.
