Chapter 8. Monitors and ColorSync > Using the Display Calibrator Assistant

Using the Display Calibrator Assistant

The Display Calibrator application is a simple assistant that walks you through the process of creating a profile for the monitors connected to your computer. If you didn't launch the calibrator through the Displays System Preferences panel, you can run it directly from /Applications/Utilities/Display Calibrator.

The steps in the calibration process differ depending on the type of monitor you're using. Adjustments to CRT (cathode ray tube) monitors, such as those in the eMac, follow these steps: set up, native gamma, target gamma, tristimuli values, target white point, and conclusion. For LCD monitors in flat panel displays and laptops, the calibration process skips over several of the steps that aren't applicable.
