Are you using Color Box or eeColor. I've used Color Box extensively for 6 weeks or so, but returned it when I could not determine how good the LUT cal quality was. Buying eeColor is much less expensive. I'm trying to determine LUT Cal Quality with LS and it's taking me a lot of time because the tool is very feature rich.
How do you determine where to upload the LUT information from with eecolor? I never got that far.
Hi JJ. I bought the first ee Color Processor from SpectraCal at CEDIA 2011. I didn't care for what it did which was basically adding a lot of luminance to everything except flesh tones. That Vivid mode stuff might appeal to some folks but it wasn't for me. I hung onto the box on the promise that 3D LUTs were going to become available for it "someday". When Spectracal Studio was announced they gave me a 30 day pass to try it out and it didn't work correctly at all. Eventually they loaded a better version of Studio on top of Calman 5 beta. Spectracal said I had to have the Spectracal ColorBox so I sent it to Seattle and it came back with that unusual purple face. Other than that it is my belief that the only things done to the box were setting the 6 LUT slots to Unity and adding their own OSD graphics. They may have done something else so that the LUTs would program on the fly but I don't know the answer to that one. I worked for two months and determined that the 125 point LUTs were about the same as those produced by Calman and ChromaPure for the Radiance video processors but once I started programming larger LUTs the processing went bonkers.

LUT1 was a 5x5x5 and LUT2 was (I think) a 9 per side, 3 or 7 deep. Pretty, eh? Anyway, two months of measurements wasted. Spectracal support hardly pays any attention because I'm pretty sure they can't get it to work either or they should have said something by now.
I've been loading LightSpace LUTs with the ee software with limited success but that has been with two displays neither of which can reach the Rec.709 gamut points. I'm moving to Florida next week where I have three displays to work with, and I've also just yesterday learned a little about using the Axis and Smoothing tools in LightSpace so I expect some degree of success soon. Those tool, I think, are very important if the display isn't doing it's part.
Is your uploading question about getting LightSpace LUTs into the eeBox? If so, download the newest ee software if version 2 is on the web site. If it's still v1 it won't work and I can email you a copy of v2. When you get v2 I'll give you the specific steps for loading a LUT onto the Box.
