Canon Calibration

Initial Setup

Canon Upload

The Upload menu is located under 'File/Upload'.


Profiling & Calibration

To activate the internal Patch Generator within the Canon display navigate to the desired LightSpace CMS profiling mode - Calibration Interface, or Display Characterisation.

When the patch window is activate within LightSpace (the LightSpace CMS internal floating patch window has been made active by clicking the small colour display box when using Quick Profiling or Manual Measure modes) the internal patch generator within the Canon display will mimic the colour displayed, using the patch size pre-set via the 'Upload' window.

Profiling can then be performed as normal, using the probe connected to LightSpace, with the Canon monitor displaying the required patches.


LUT Upload

After profiling a Calibration LUT can be generated as normal within LightSpace CMS. With the LUT still held within LightSpace navigate back to the 'Upload' menu, and un-tick the 'NULL Cube' tick box, enabling the present LUT displayed within LightSpace to be 'Uploaded' directly into the Canon display.

The location to upload the 3D LUT to is selected via LUT slot drop-down menu.

In this way, many different LUTs can be held within LightSpace CMS and quickly and easily uploaded into the Canon display as needed, perfect for Look Management as well as accurate calibration to different standards.
