These Displays are selected in this StudioMatch process
- The displays are listed with their individual maximum brightness level.
- Based on previous calibrations / the previous maximum brightness measurement, the Spyder X2 software knows how your displays perform in terms of brightness and will evaluate the best Target Brightness to achieve an alignment of all your screens. - If you want you can adjust this value, but never above the lowest value of the selected displays. - The brighter displays can be made dimmer, but the dimmest display can't be made any brighter. - We recommend you to leave the value calculated by the Spyder X2 software.
- The Gamma value defines the contrast ratio of your display view. The most common color gamuts are AdobeRGB / sRGB and the operating systems Mac OS X and Windows work with Gamma 2.2. - Please only change this value if required by your color workflow.
- Also known as Color Temperature, the Kelvin value defines the white point of your display. A lower Kelvin value results in a warmer white point than a higher Kelvin value. - 6500 Kelvin is recommended as it's the recommended target for AdobeRGB and sRGB. - If required for your color workflow adjust the White Point.
