Test Program for LCD Monitors?
6/9/08 2:36:05 PM

Hey folks I have a BenqG2400WD monitor that looks fine but I have no calibration software and would like to test / optimise I have read good things about displaymate but there is no longer a demo.

Can anyone recommend a good test program and possible offer a brief rundown of what to do?

Calibrating and testing are different things and they happen at different levels. High end print houses generally use hardware monitor and print calibrating, like the Spyder 3 Studio, same with proper photographers and the like. The G2400 is a non colour critical consumer model and I don't suspect you need colours to be critical. You should decide what's important to you and we can go from there. If you have a good eye generally you can do basic callibrating by downloading a photo taken by a pro. From here you can adjust for tonal range, depths in the shadows, colour cast etc. Adobe have a facility called Adobe Gamma in Photoshop which will basically adjust green red and blue for you as well as contrast brightness.

There are a fair few free programs out there that help you calibrate your brightness and contrast.
As brian said however colour calibration is not that simple.
