Upplands Väsby, Sweden, December 13, 2007 – Eizo Europe AB (“EIZO”) today released version five of its ColorNavigator calibration software. ColorNavigator is EIZO’s proprietary software for its ColorEdge® series of LCD monitors for graphics professionals. When used with a supported calibration device, ColorNavigator provides 10- or 12-bit hardware calibration of ColorEdge monitors for accurate and predictable color results.
ColorNavigator 5 is compatible with all past and current ColorEdge monitors. This includes the ColorEdge CE (Creator Edition) models and the ColorEdge CG241W which previously could only be used with ColorNavigator CE – a version that only supported basic calibration functions.
Now owners of these models can enjoy all the features of ColorNavigator that were previously not available to them including post-calibration manual adjustment and recalibration reminder settings.
ColorNavigator 5 comes with the following new features for better usability and performance.
? New Interface for Easier Use – All target values and their calibration records are displayed in the startup window for quick access. Each record settings for the monitor’s brightness, white point, and gamma. Simply choose a record and press a button and the monitor’s settings will change instantly.
? Recalibration Reminder – The recalibration reminder, which alerts the user to recalibrate the monitor after a specific number of user-determined hours have lapsed, has also been integrated
into the startup window. If the button next to an adjustment record turns red then it means that
it is time for the monitor to be recalibrated to the settings of that record.
? Validation Function – This function measures the monitor’s color patches to determine the difference between the Delta-E value of the monitor’s profile and the actual displayed values of the monitor. This allows for verifying the results of calibration or checking to see how much the monitor’s colors have varied since it was last calibrated. The measurement results of both the monitor and profile for each color patch are indicated in either CIELAB or XYZ values, and the difference between them expressed in Delta-E. The Delta-E variation can be shown in a graph
