I just bought my first pro monitor, Eizo CG2420 to use with Resolve hooked via HDMI to a BMD mini monitor 4K.
I have spent hours watching tutorials reading this forum and others and I have started to understand a bit of the complexities of monitor calibration. After many days of reading, today I decided to do my first profiling. Procedure:
- I let the probe (i1 Display Pro Retail) and the Eizo warm up for an hour.
- I did a calibration with Color Navigator 7 and the i1 Display Pro. I saved the 1D Lut on the monitor. This particular Eizo does not take 3D Luts.
- I did a profile with the free version of Lightspace and the i1 Display Pro Retail (using Ted drivers) with Resolve. I'm planning to either buy a LTE license or to rent it for 3 days to finish the calibration but, first, I would like to understand if I did something wrong.
The Delta E numbers after the calibration with Color Navigation seem fine. But the Delta E numbers that Light Space is showing me are really high. So, I would really appreciate some feedback. Maybe I did something wrong? or this monitor can be that off?
You can see the settings and the results from Light Space and CN in the pictures attached. The settings are also listed below.Eizo CG2420 settings

Note: This Eizo has a particular admin menu that allows me to change the mode from "PC" to "Video". I left it in PC as I do not understand what exactly this setting does.Probe
