Other Probes

ColourSpace is integrated with a range of additional measurement probes, not just the models that have dedicated User Guides.

  • ColourSpace INF/XPT/PRO/CAL/LTE & HTX/HTP & DPS*
  • Minolta
  • PhotoResearch
  • EIZO Internal
  • ASUS Internal
  • LG Internal
  • Dell Internal

*Note: Different ColourSpace licenses are compatible with different probes. Check the ColourSpace page for details.


ColourSpace Integration

As with all probes, operation and function is controlled via the Probe Options menu, accessed via the Profiling window, with the left-hand side of the menu providing generic probes settings, and the right-hand side settings specific to the connected probe.

Probe Options

Available options will vary depending on the probe connected.

Integration Time

Integration Time sets the time taken for any given measurement, with long integration times potentially generating more accurate readings.

Maximum Exposure Time

Maximum Exposure Time sets the maximum exposure duration for any given reading.
For optimal use, Intelligent Integration is recommended, if available.

Sync Frequency

Sync Frequency defines the sync frequency of the probe, with Auto normally being the default, although Manual can be used if the refresh rate of the display is known.

Settings

Calibration Settings provides generic probe settings and preset Matrix options, as well as the Probe Calibration option.

Matrix Presets

The Drop-down menu provides access to the pre-set matrices held within the probe.
The Matrix presets match the probe to different display technologies - specifically the backlight/illumination spectral response.
For highest accuracy ColourSpace's in-built Probe Matching should be used, as it is superior to the standard matrix method used within any probe.

Average Low Light

Average Low Light is a probe generic option, that averages multiple readings in low-light situations using an advanced algorithm built into ColourSpace. The algorithm varies based on the probe in use to provide the best possible results.

Enable Visible Feedback

Enable Visible Feedback enables any inbuilt laser pointer or visual measurement indicator, if available.

Probe Calibration

The Probe Calibration button will save a dark current calibration reading, used to improve reading accuracy in low-lights.

Probe Adjustments

Probe Adjustments are generic probes settings, with consistent operation regardless of the probe in use.

Configure Matching

Probe Matching is used to match a Tristimulus to a Spectroradiometer, increasing the profile accuracy.

There are three different methods available for probe matching - ColourSpace's unique 4 Colour Volumetric Matching (FCVM), and Multi-point Volumetric Matching (MPVM), with the option to force the use of the traditional simple matrix method (FCMM).

Offset

Probe Offset enables a user to manually enter offset values for different probes/display combinations.
Perceptual Colour Match is a preferable approach.

Extra Delay

Extra Delay sets a delay time after the patch has changed before probe measurement starts, and can be set automatically via the Auto button, and manages signal path delays in the image pipeline.
When using the Auto option, Average Low Light and Intelligent Integration should not be enabled.
