Cintiq 21UX - color calibration

  1. Default Cintiq 21UX - color calibration

    I run a small design firm, specializing in web, print and animation. We've just got a new 21" Cintiq pen display, which is very, very nice. But now I've got to calibrate the display's colors (*properly*)... I've been searching for info on color calibration for the Cintiq, but been able to find much.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction? THANKS!

  2. Default Re: Cintiq 21UX - color calibration

    From what I can see at the WACOM website, this tablet ships with a canned ICC profile at 6500K white point. I'm guessing (since the specs make no mention of adjustable white point/brightness/contrast) that you can't actually calibrate the tablet.

    You should be able to profile it like any other LCD monitor. Profiling software will adjust the LUT in your video card to attempt to linearize the display before creating the profile.

    I'm also guessing that for as expensive as this tablet is, you should be able to get good results by profiling it without calibrating it first.

    That's my best guess, anyway. Hope it helps.

    You don't have to treat it any differently than any other LCD. I'd use a Native White Point, a 2.2 gamma (native if the software supports that) and a reasonable luminance level (120 cd/m2 or somewhere in that neighborhood).
