From another user that upgraded from Calman to ColourSpace:

I have officially joined the "dark side" and bought ColourSpace as my Calman Home license was expiring. Please let this be the last calibration license I have to buy for a while!!! Can't wait to dive in. I would never have switched if it weren't for Ted and Leon's guides.

And from another 'upgrader' agreeing with the above user's views:

As someone how did the "switch"* recently: NO REGRETS!
It's just awesome and 1000-times more intuitive to use, once you've learned the basics (And Ted's & Leon's excessive manuals, how-tos, guides and super-fast mail responses!).

* Just bought CalMAN in April and it really is annoying in so many ways!

From a general AV forum:

When that "new CM LUT" engine is coming?

One year is gone and my annual [Calman] license is going to end at this month.
Still same artefacts and color banding, not possible to use another than Lightning LUT.
I should take moneys back when Portrait Displays offered it, they had nothing else solution at technical support.

But no problem, I have license for LightSpace and ColorSpace programs
.

Really says a lot...

From a rather happy ColourSpace user, who also has Calman:

I saw your LinkedIn post earlier this week regarding LG OLED calibration with ColourSpace and all the work Ted has done working with other enthusiasts on this process. In addition, I know Ted has spent countless hours writing guides as well as centralizing and organizing the hundreds of pages of information scattered on the AVS forum regarding the LG OLEDs.

I wanted to share my recent ColourSpace results with you from my own LG 65" CX SDR calibration.

First, I just want to say that Ted is a tremendous asset to the LightSpace/ColourSpace community and calibration enthusiasts in general. I first started communicating with Ted back in 2015 when I purchased his calibration disk and media files. We have exchanged hundreds of emails over the years and he has given me seemingly endless advice and always asking for nothing in return- though I regularly contribute to his PayPal to show my appreciation- another one coming soon Ted!

I have been calibrating as an enthusiast for many years, but a lot of my focus in the past was with front projectors. Eventually, I would like to start doing some professional level calibration on the side and since the LG OLEDs are so popular, I knew that I needed to gain experience with them. So, for the past year, I have been closely following the progress of the LG OLED calibration process with ColourSpace and Device Control. I do also have Calman Ultimate for Business that I begrudgingly keep updated, but there was no way I was going to use that with the LG. I decided to wait for the 2020 LG models as well as the official release of ColourSpace.

I have spent the last few weeks getting familiar with Device Control and calibrating SDR on the CX and I have to say this was the smoothest, easiest, most accurate calibration I have ever done. The results, in my opinion, are reference quality. I have attached screenshots of my final results and the only possible area of improvement would be my low end greyscale & gamma, but I highly doubt those incremental improvements would even be visible in actual content. I have 3 "orange" points on a 1000 point verification profile and the largest error of the three is 1.2 dE 00.

Thank you again for this brilliant software and THANK YOU to Ted for his continued guidance and for working with the enthusiast community to develop this process and all the best practices for these panels.

Taken from a thread within these forums from a user who only recently traded-up to ColourSpace from Calman, for JVC projector calibration:

I just watched a movie this evening and it was fantastic. No issues with posterization or banding. I was very pleased. I am sure I could spend several more hours trying to figure out how to reduce the gamut in the projector's rec2020 mode, but I would loose some gamut, brightness, and contrast in the reduction to avoid the edge compression. Not to mention the hours I would spend doing it...

I know I still have a lot to learn, but I am really thrilled to have gotten an amazing result out of using ColourSpace.

I have done previous LUTs using other solutions, but I have had issues with them, which was what lead me to ColourSpace. I have learned more using ColourSpace because its flexibility also requires you to have little more understanding of the techniques you are applying. I have enjoyed that, but it has also got me asking questions and trying to understand the "why" of it. Ironically, the results I have gotten with the ColourSpace calibrations have been better than the other software solutions by their own metrics (the ColourSpace LUTs test better than then other packages LUTs using their own verification tests!).
