basICColor display 6 software
ground breaking screen calibration/profiling
New for 2020: basICColor display 6 is a ground up rewrite for 64 bit support, OSX Catalina and Big Sur Mac users can rejoice. The Windows version is ready too. As of 2021, the new basICColor display 6 Pro has been added to the stable.
Please contact us for more info. Here's an expert review and intro to the standard software and to the pro version
basICColor display software provides a cost-effective and very significant upgrade for calibration and profiling system users who feel that they'd like more control over display accuracy and settings and, thus, better peace of mind. display software is the right solution for any screen user who would like more flexibility for calibration; the ability to fine-tune calibration target values can result in far better print matching than is provided by the often very simplistic software bundled with hardware.
display now includes excellent video industry calibration facilities as well as many upgraded and new features - such as virtually instant switching between calibrations/profiles without even opening the software.
basICColor display is a software-only solution, which means that switching to basICColor display generally does not mean buying a new calibration sensor, all the good current sensors are supported as well as some older ones, although it's important to note that, unfortunately, some older sensors do not have 64-bit support from their manufacturers.

Because of its features and capabilities, basICColor display is by far the most professional software in its class. Many users report back about the software's ability to provide a "paper-like" appearance to the screen if desired.

on-site experience - sometimes there's a tough nut to crack
In my own work at the City of Westminster College Centre of Vocational Excellence, I was working with quite a mixed bag of screen hardware across the department. As well as their suite of up to date Apple Displays, I helped set up 2 fairly old iMacs, 2 PC's with Windows XP, 3 Older Macs with elderly Apple LCD's and 2 x basic CRT eMacs. So, quite a mix of screens. With the right calibration targets selected, the various screens were able to be extremely close in appearance, the results were very good and certainly usable. This capability can save a lot of money, you might find that the new display you've been thinking was a necessary expense might not be needed quite so soon.
