JVC Introduces Monitor Calibration Software For Its Professional HD DT-V Series Monitors
Posted Jul 14, 2008

JVC’s new Monitor Calibration Software provides DT-V professional monitor users with the flexibility to adjust color temperature, gamma curves and luminance levels to accommodate specific application needs. The software is free for users who own JVC’s 17-inch, 20-inch and 24-inch DT-V monitors.

"We’re constantly improving our technology to accommodate customers in critical viewing situations that require the most precise color and image quality available. With our monitors, color differences aren’t an issue," said Edgar Shane, General Manager, Engineering, JVC Professional Products Company. "We are pleased to provide this cutting-edge technology free of charge to JVC monitor owners."

All JVC professional studio monitors are shipped from the JVC factory in Japan and are precisely calibrated at 6500K and 2.2 gamma correction. Manual adjustments include a unique backlight adjustment, and when combined with very high native contrast ratio, enable close matching of black levels to reference CRT monitors for critical viewing and color matching applications.

In addition, JVC Monitor Calibration software is available free of charge to registered JVC customers who purchased DT-V series monitors. The software is compatible with X-Rite and Minolta color probes (purchased separately) and allows the user to re-calibrate DT-V series professional monitors to custom luminance levels, color temperature and gamma curves. Monitor calibration data can be saved and re-applied to groups of monitors to achieve uniform color reproduction throughout the entire studio facility. Multiple color profiles including factory calibration settings can be saved and re-applied if required.

The Monitor Calibration Software allows users to load and save adjustment-data/ adjustment-profiles, measure and indicate the maximum and minimum luminance, and automatically adjust the white balance and gamma correction.
