PART 4: Monitor Calibration Systems

Monitor calibration systems are available from a number of different companies including Spyder, X-rite, HP and LaCie. There are others that work with particular monitors, an example of this is the EIZO EX2 which works with the EIZO ColorNavigator software to calibrate EIZO monitors. The EIZO EX2 is just a rebranded Spyder4. There are two types of calibrator, colorimeter and spectrophotometers. Colorimeters have three filters, red, green and blue and so only measure these three colours whereas spectrophotometers measure many more colours which should make them more accurate. Spectrophotometers include i1Pro and ColorMunki and Colorimeters include DTP-94, i1 and the Spyder range.
