I am looking for a new monitor because I think my old CRT is drifting.
Does anyone know if the NEC Wide Gamut monitors can be used with the ColorMunki? I think I heard that they can not. Also is the ColorMunki able to adjust R G & B separately on the monitor, if the monitor allowed that? I was under the impression that only adjusted Brightness and contrast, however a sales Rep at the Large Camera Chain told me in advanced mode it is able to adjust colors individually to eliminate casts.
It supports the Munki. I think you need to switch the Munki service off for it to work though.
This isn't the type of monitor you are used to so you don't do stuff like adjust the R,G,B like that on simpler monitors. It has a very advanced, ultra-linear 14 3D LUT system. You can move the primary locations around, adjust the white balance, program in a tone response curve, adjust the brightness. Most of it actually sort of does most of the work internally. For tone response, for all the ones it has built-in charts for, it's as simple as hitting sRGB vs Gamma 2.2 or whatnot and then it will do it, during calibration it basically just measures the WB and adjusts that while measuring with the probe and then it measures the primary locations (which can used in the profile it creates or it can use what the monitor thinks they have been set to, your choice).
For WB you don't tell it how much R,G,B you tell it what coordinates xy of xyY to target.
