This post is about Individual Eve V factory screen calibration. And we need your input!
###What’s this all about?
As you know we have a great display on our V (yeah, we are very proud of it )
It is bright, vibrant and has great resolution. But there is always a but.
We found a way to take our display performance to the next level and make sure that our device would have “one of the most color accurate displays on the market” (that’s what reviewers would say)
We want to calibrate each and every display of assembled product individually at the factory floor. By doing so we would make sure that all the devices leaving the factory floor will have the same color performance and would be ready to be used by professional artists and designers as well as people who appreciate great picture quality out of the box!
We will be able to achieve 100% match to sRGB color standard
It is an expensive and quite labor intensive process but we are ready to do it to make sure that V’s display is not just great but mind-blowing . Most companies in the market don’t calibrate displays for their products unless it is a professional display they are selling. (Even Macs don’t do it the same we would)
It is easier to show what the difference between calibrated display and non calibrated display is. Typically you would see a color cast on your device colors.
###This is how display looks before screen calibration

###This is how it looks in the middle of the process
###And this is how it loos after calibration
These are just reference images but they show the point well I took them from this website. You can read more about calibration here
###Great! Of course let’s do it! Why even ask?
We have approached leading company for screen calibration. Their tools and software are used by professionals worldwide. For example AnandTech uses their software to evaluate all of the devices.
Company is called Portrait Displays and their software is CalMAN
You can read more about them here at their website. http://calman.spectracal.com/
We have already reached out to CalMAN some time ago and calibrated some of our V’s in the office. The difference is very noticeable. You can read about our experience with screen calibration as well as what results we were able to achieve here:
So what’s the catch Konsta???
Basically in order to be able to calibrate the display at the factory we would need to install a client from calibration company that will be used to store color profiles and make sure that they don’t get overridden by Windows/drivers updates or other apps.
This client has no effect on performance or anything else. It’s only purpose is to store individually calibrated color profiles.
We will pay a hefty license fee per each client but if it is what it takes to get the best color performing display out there we are all for it!
You can read about why it is needed for calibration and how it works at the official website:
Being 100% open and transparent with you guys we wanted to make sure that you are fine with having this app installed on all the devices. We have checked with Microsoft and CalMAN and it is the only possible way to make sure you can keep color calibration we have done.
###So there are 2 options. You get to decide!
- I want V to have the most color accurate and vibrant display out there and I am fine with having color manager installed
- I am ok with V having same color performance as other products in the market and I find color cast on display acceptable. I don’t want to have color manager installed
