Product Description

Designed for professionals with color-critical applications, SpectraViewII combines award-winning NEC display technology with a color-measurement sensor and sophisticated calibration software. The result is highly accurate, reliable, repeatable, feature-rich solution for display calibration and profiling. The SpectraViewII system uses a color sensor to take color measurements of the display screen during calibration. The software analyzes these measurements and sends color adjustment commands directly to the display monitor. This means that color adjustments are made in the monitor rather than in the video graphics adapter. With SpectraViewII, the video graphics adapter is not used at all to make any gamma or Tone Response Curve corrections to the display, so the fidelity of the system is maintained.

Using this package I was able to calibrate my display for regular use, print matching in Photoshop, Lightroom, and other programs. Yes it cost a fair amount, but if you are going to spend the money for a top notch display you might as well shell out the feww extra bucks and calibrate it properly. Believe me when I say the difference in color accuracy after I calibrated the display is astounding!

I'd like to give 5 starts and overall I do. I put 4 to note that there are a few things that can be improved.

I purchased Software only at NEC website and got the i1Display Pro + color passport separately for my photo work. The software does its job well, it calibrates the colors. In fact it does it so well, that it positively will not let you mess up the calibration. It locks the screen's controls so that you cannot adjust anything at all, even monitor brightness. To adjust brightness basically you go into the profile settings, put in a new luminance value, and subsequently you recalibrate your monitor to that new value. Ability to adjust brightness as you know it is now done via software only, and the only physical controls on the monitor that will remain working is the on/off button. There is no way to change that; or at least NEC support did not tell me otherwise. There is an option inside to "Unlock Brightness", but alas it does not work and Brightness is still locked. By NEC support, that feature was reportedly for older NEC monitors. My NEC PA241W is newer.

There is some magic that's missing from the calibration process. It is not easy to see the "before" and the "after" images as is popular in many other calibration packages. With SpectraView II I found that you can calibrate your monitor to 2 (or more) different targets, and only then you can switch from one to another. However, the switch is lengthy and does not allow you the pleasure of switching easily back and forth between calibrations. When switching, it first unloads the current profile, which takes a few seconds. Then you see a flash of your originally uncalibrated monitor colors. Then it loads the profile you've selected, and that takes a few seconds.

Actually, there's not much to say and I'm also not going to be technical here. If you can afford to buy one of these monitors (not necessarily NEC) you should equip yourself with a hardware/tool allowing you to maximize your monitor's capabilities. Personally, I always like to use dedicated hardware which is not always coming cheap but hay, at the end, it's an investment which will pay off in the future if you're planning to become a professional graphic designer, photo editor or any type of multi-platform designer where colour reproduction and quality is highly demanded.

Only with the Spectraview II software can you easily calibrate the internal 14bit 3D LUT.

You could try to build a calibration with multi-profiler alone (comes free with the monitor), however, you need to use some external program to measure the white point and primary locations and white luminance and then enter the custom values in yourself and then you'd get a top quality calibration too however the associated .icc profile made by MP would be wrong as it would list the programmed values instead of the measured values.

The custom NEC i1D2 probe works very well with SV II + a wide gamut NEC PA monitor. They custom calibrate the probe to NECs wide gamut displays. Using SV II it reports reasonably similar values to my $900 i1 Pro, although the i1 Pro does appear to do a bit better.

This was purchased in connection with an NEC 27" monitor (purchased separately) to be used as part of a color managed work flow for fine art photography. It is the icing on the NEC cake! It is a "closed loop" profiling solution which communicates directly with the monitor seamlessly. I have used other profiling products with other monitors over the years but this is the best. It was recommended by numerous skilled photographers. The bottom line... my prints look as close to the monitor as possible.
