for Mac is a display calibration and profiling solution with a focus on accuracy and versatility (in fact, the author is of the honest opinion it may be the most accurate and versatile ICC compatible display profiling solution available anywhere). At its core it relies on ArgyllCMS, an open source color management system, to take measurements, create calibrations and profiles, and for a variety of other advanced color related tasks.
Calibrate and characterize your display devices using one of many supported measurement instruments, with support for multi-display setups and a variety of available options for advanced users, such as verification and reporting functionality to evaluate ICC profiles and display devices, creating video 3D LUTs, as well as optional CIECAM02 gamut mapping to take into account varying viewing conditions.
If you would like to support the development of, technical assistance with, and continued availability of DisplayCAL
for Mac and Argyll CMS, please consider a financial contribution. As DisplayCAL
for Mac wouldnt be useful without Argyll CMS, all contributions received for DisplayCAL
for Mac will be split between both projects.
For light personal non-commercial use, a one-time contribution may be appropriate. If youre using DisplayCAL
for Mac professionally, an annual or monthly contribution would make a great deal of difference in ensuring that both projects continue to be available.
* Support of colorimeter corrections for different display device types to increase the absolute accuracy of colorimeters. Corrections can be imported from vendor software or created from measurements if a spectrometer is available.
* Check display device uniformity via measurements.
* Test chart editor: Create charts with any amount and composition of color patches, easy copy & paste from CGATS, CSV files (only tab-delimited) and spreadsheet applications, for profile verification and evaluation.
* Create synthetic ICC profiles with custom primaries, white- and blackpoint as well as tone response for use as working spaces or source profiles in device linking (3D LUT) transforms.
