LUTs and XV

When browsing the internet I stumpled across this article. In summary, Xv does currently bypass the video card's LUTs in most cases. Tools like dispwin and xcalib have no effect.

It seems to me - after reading the entire thread - that these guys are willing to add hooks for color-management. Let's see what the result will be!

X-Rite DTP-94

Finally I got my brand-new X-Rite DTP-94. Actually it's a Monaco Optix XR - but I don't really care what software came with it since I wanted to use it to test the open-source ICC monitor profile creation programs: Argyll and Lprof.

I ordered it from the US since here in Germany these devices are really expensive. Now I paid 129$ + tax + shipping + customs + whatever = ~150€ - no more a bargain ;-(
