ColourSpace can be integrated with Konvision's range of professional monitors for accurate Closed Loop display profiling and calibration.
- ColourSpace INF/XPT/PRO
- Closed Loop Profiling
- 3D LUTs
- Inbuilt TPG Operation
Konvision calibration is controlled via the Hardware Options menu, accessed via the Profiling window.
- If required, make sure the correct drivers are installed
(If necessary, verify via Windows Device Manager)
- Connect the Konvision monitor to the ColourSpace laptop via a USB or network connection as required, as well as a direct video connection with valid signal, and start ColourSpace
- Set the desired set-up options via the Settings menu, as required
- Open a ColourSpace Profiling window, select Hardware Options, and select Konvision from the Hardware drop-down list
- Either select the correct COMs port from the Serial Port drop-down, or select the Network Address window enter the required IP address, and select Connect
(If an IP address has been entered into the Network Address window it will be used by default)
(The default IP address is 192.168.1.155, and the ColourSpace laptop will need to be on the same subnet mask and gateway - 255.255.255.0 and 192.168.1.1)
- To make sure there is no existing calibration data active within the selected Profile/Load/LUT/Slot, and associated colour space selection, etc., select Unity Bypass from the Select LUT option, and press Upload
- Using Calibration Patches select the desired patch option to use for profiling
(Custom patch settings are defined via the Konvision Options window - Automatic uses the patch settings defined within the ColourSpace Settings window, or else the closest available patch settings)
Potentially, when Unity Bypass data is Uploaded all 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.
To profile the Konvision monitor with ColourSpace navigate to the desired profiling mode - Manual Measure or Display Characterisation.
The screen of the Konvision monitor will mimic the colour displayed, using the patch settings defined via the Hardware Options and Settings menus.
Profiling can then be performed as normal, using the probe connected to ColourSpace, and with the Konvision screen displaying the required patches.
Alternatively, an external TPG can be used.
- Open a second ColourSpace Profiling window, select Hardware Options, and select the required TPG from the Hardware drop-down list
(Refer to the relevant TPG User Guide for further operational information)
- The probe must be connected to the same Profiling Window as the TPG
Any patch generator can be used, including direct HDMI/DVI/DisplayPort connection from the ColourSpace laptop via a HDMI to SDI converter as needed.
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.
Note: With 4K Konvision monitors ColourSpace will show a Load Error warning after a LUT Upload. This is due to a change in Konvision firmware with 4K monitors, but can be ignored as the LUT will have loaded correctly.
