    The International Colour Consortium (ICC) have laid down a set of guidelines for universal colour transmission and display across the entire printing and computer processes.

    No system is 100% accurate, however the ICC profile management and calibration systems from the likes of Gretag McBeth and Colorvision etc provide excellent results at affordable prices.

    To achieve accurate results is dependent on the accuracy of calibration of your monitors. To do this you need a device to measure the colour temperature, contrast, intensity and colours on your screen. This is done by placing a colour measuring head on the screen and then measuring the output of the screen while the software package displays a series of test colours and proceedures. The software then writes a custom adjustment profile for each monitor and then the computer uses this profile to adjust the windows (or Mac OS) environment so that the colours, intensity and contrast are accurately displayed.

    Furthermore the more advanced systems allow you to share colour information with other computers, thus ensuring constant rerpoduction from one computer to another.

    This whole process takes a few minutes and needs to be performed regularly.

    You can purchase packages from a couple of hundred USD to well over 5,000 USD depending on the levels of accuracy and the number of devices you want to profile (cheapest are monitors, the most expensive are printer, scanner, monitor packages.

    After getting the EyeOne Display from that mass order sometime back, one question remains. What is the correct luminance level to calibrate to? The recommended 140cd/m² is way, way too bright for me. And if everyone calibrates to a different luminance, then while the colours will still possibly be accurate (can it anyway?) we are probably looking at different levels of shadow/highlight detail.

    Or am I missing something?
