Metamerism

If you have ever wondered why your OLED and CRT, or Plasma and LCD, or even two LCD monitors using different backlight technologies can measure as matches with a high-end color analyzer yet still look perceptually different when viewed next to one another then this video will help shed some light on this perplexing issue.

Perceptual Display Matching

This PDF (Perceptual Display Matching Using LightSpace CMS) details a straightforward method of minimizing the perceptual gap between different types of displays utilized in the same viewing environment.

Operators looking for even more fine-tuned control of perceptual display matching may be interested in our Perceptual Matching Using BoxIO and LiveGrade Pro workflow. This PDF and accompanying video provide an overview of this process.
