ASUS Displays

ColourSpace can be integrated with the ASUS PA32UCX display for accurate Closed Loop display profiling and calibration.

  • ColourSpace Integration
  • Closed Loop Profiling
  • 3D LUT
  • Inbuilt TPG Operation

As the pioneer ASUS display, the PA32UCX is presently the only display in the ASUS range with accessible 3D LUT capability, and and therefore is the only ASUS display that can be calibrated via ColourSpace.

No other ASUS display presently has 3D LUT based calibration capability, and therefore has no ColourSpace integration.

This may change in the future, as ASUS add ColourSpace integration to additional displays.


ColourSpace Integration

ASUS PA32UCX calibration is controlled via the Hardware Options menu, accessed via the Profiling window.

Initial Setup

  • Connect the ASUS display to the ColourSpace laptop via a USB connection, as well as a direct video connection with valid signal, and start ColourSpace
  • Open a ColourSpace Profiling window, select Hardware Options, and select ASUS from the Hardware drop-down list
  • Select Connect
  • To make sure there is no existing calibration data active within the display, select Unity Bypass from the Select LUT option, and press Upload
    (The calibration slot Upload uses is defined by the ASUS Options menu)
    (Selecting a HDR slot will force the display into High Brightness mode)
  • Using Calibration Patches select the desired patch option to use for profiling
    (Automatic uses the patch settings within the ColourSpace Settings window)

As soon as a Calibration Patches seletcion is made the ASUS display will show the patch colour as defined within the ColourSpace Manual Measure menu.

Note: Potentially, when Unity Bypass data is Uploaded all display settings will be nullified, not just the relevant LUTs. Should it be desired that settings other than the LUTs remain as set, upload a real Bypass 3D LUT (generated via LUT Tools/LUT Management/New), as that will only null the relevant LUTs, as selected. Alternatively, reset any necessary settings, such as Brightness/Contrast/Black-Level, after the Unity Bypass data Upload.

Profiling Operation

To profile the ASUS display with ColourSpace navigate to the desired profiling mode - Manual Measure or Display Characterisation.

The screen of the ASUS display will mimic the colour displayed, using the patch settings defined via Hardware Options.

Profiling can then be performed as normal, using the probe connected to ColourSpace, and with the ASUS screen displaying the required patches.

LUT Upload

After profiling, a Calibration LUT can be generated as normal within ColourSpace LUT Tools.

With the LUT still held within ColourSpace navigate back to the Hardware Options menu, and select the desired LUT from within the Select LUT options, and Upload it.

The ASUS display has 4 separate LUT Upload options.

  • 1D + 3D (1D pre + 3D)
  • 3D only
  • 1D pre only
  • 1D post only

The 1D post LUT can be used to pre-set display gamma prior to profiling for final calibration.
