The Patch Indent/Size & Extra Delay controls within the LightSpace Network Manager can be used to set any specific patch size and position for display profiling, as well as a delay for probe measurement.
The 'Diagonal' box enables the selection of patches based on the ICDM Lxx sizes, which are defined as a percentage of the screen diagonal size. The 'Area' box shows the equivalent screen area percentage for the selected patch. It is possible to enter the desired area percentage manually.
The 4 indent values are also in percentage terms, and can be used to set a Custom width and height of the patch window, as well as the position.
To reposition the patch you simply add/subtract the same value from the apposing percentage boxes, which will reposition the patch, while maintaining the same patch size.
The 'Extra Delay Time' setting is duplicate of the same setting with the 'Options' menu, as allows for a delay time in seconds to be set before the probe starts reading after a patch change has occurred. This is required when using an external patch generator (such as LightSpace Connect) with an in-built delay, meaning the patches on the display being profiled occur out of sync (delayed) with respect to the patch changes within LightSpace. Such a delay is easy to see visually, and a corresponding value entered to counter the visual delay.
Note: If using an external patch generator that has no understanding of patch size and/or background colour, set the Indent/Size controls to 0%, and keep the Background Colour set to the default black.
Note: The Network Manager can be accessed during a Display Characterisation, enabling the patch size, position, and BG colour to be adjusted during profiling. Depending on the patch generation system being used, it may be preferable to use the 'Pause' button within the Calibration Status window, to pause the profiling before making such adjustments.
