There's a new revision of the popular X-Rite i1 Display Pro colorimeter out here, and the latest ArgyllCMS release is not able to drive this sensor fully yet

+Vincent Sergère is a proud owner of one and can't use it quite yet for what it's intended for now.

Hoping this message will help ArgyllCMS's author!

[argyllcms] Error with new i1 Display Pro revision. From: François Simond ; To: [email protected]; Date: Fri, 9 Oct 2015 02:29:27 +0200. Hi Graeme and the list! I’m assisting a friend with his brand new X-Rite i1 DisplayPro, which has a new revision and firmware.

  1. What's your experience with wide gamut displays and these devices? I have one and have used it on my nx500 (4k wide gamut quantum dot display), but I'm not super happy with the results. I think I need a better correction file?

  2. +Steve Kondik​​​ so far it is consistent with what this article shows: http://www.drycreekphoto.com/Learn/Calibration/MonitorCalibrationHardware.html
    I observed a good consistency between sensors.

    Also, despite both are wrong, different display technology / different gamut color matching is less wrong with my i1 Display Pro with no spectral compensation than my i1pro – which is counterintuitive as the spectro sees the spectrum and should be much better at that.
    But that's also confirmed by the same article: the i1 Pro performance is not all that great.

    Initially I was calculating correction matrices from the i1 spectro assuming it would be more accurate than the i1 colorimeter with display variety but later, color matching experiments proved that approach counterproductive.
    Now, in theory, from a reference spectrometer it should work better.

    I didn't get any usable results from the i1 Display Pro with the spectral compensation presets for wide gamut displays adapted by dispcalGUI. I don't know if they're just not good or the conversion to Argyll's ccmx is faulty.

    What is it that makes you not happy with the results on this display / sensor combo?
