Key Concepts in Display and Monitor Calibration

This post provides an overview of key concepts in display and monitor calibration, with emphasis on general concepts and concise descriptions. Topics include photometric measurements (luminance, contrast ratio, gamma), color measurements (chromaticity, color temperature, gamut mapping, dominant wavelength and purity, white balance/gray balance) and multidimensional characteristics (uniformity, reflection, BRDF, MTF).

What is Photometry?

Photometry is the science concerned with measuring human visual response to light. Because the eye is a highly complex organ, this is by no means a simple task. It involves the meeting of many disciplines: psychology, physiology, and physics among them.

What You Need to Know About Display Calibration

Display calibration is the process of using the display’s controls to calibrate the on screen image so that it matches the original source content, as its creator designed it. This allows the calibrated display to accurately reproduce the video signals from any source device, be it a digital signage player, cable box, satellite box or Blu-Ray player.
