Monaco Releases Color Management ToolsSolutions provide profiling for digital cameras, LCD and CRT displays
MonacoDCcolor is a new digital camera profiling solution aimed at the professional digital photography market. It creates custom ICC profiles for digital cameras using the GretagMacbeth ColorChecker target, the GretagMacbeth ColorChecker DC target, or the Reflective HutchColor target (HCT). A digital capture of the color target is loaded into MonacoDCcolor, which is then evaluated by the software. The software then applies automatic color balancing and compensation for uneven target illumination and builds an ICC profile.
MonacoOptix is a monitor calibration system that combines a colorimeter with software for profiling both LCD and CRT displays. The software has a wizard-like interface for generating profiles, with user-selectable white point and gamma settings, along with hardware-adjusted brightness and contrast.
MonacoDCcolor sells for $399. MonacoOptix sells for $299 and offers a limited-time $75 rebate for those who use the MonacoSensor calibration device. Both support Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows. For more information, visit http://www.monacosys.com.
