Have a calibrator on hand

Hi Damien,

I have an X-Rite Eye One Pro UV Cut on hand. Will this unit suffice for my monitor calibration? I see that the Eye One Display Pro is on the list and this unit takes the same software. This is an older unit that has literally seen zero miles.

I will try and see what happens - my equipment is several years old, so I know my macbook pro doesn't have a retina display (mid-2010). The units maybe complement each other.

I used the X-Rite Eye One Pro UV Cut with the latest version of software and this is the calibration I got; however, my lab prints are a tad bit warmer than this calibration. Do you suggest a different target? This calibration was the result of following your instructions and using the large swatch palette.

I am at somewhat of a disadvantage having the older LCD screen, as I do have to make sure I'm looking at it from the correct angle or the color and brightness change. Not something I can remedy at this point in time.

Definitely while I'm at home; however, I utilize my laptop at work in prepress where they have it well lit and I can still see the difference. One of my lab prints in hanging in the office there so I actually have something to compare to.

That's great. So, while at work in good light, follow the troubleshooting part of my calibration instructions to correct the problem.

And of course take steps to fix your lighting at home.
