Calibrating Your Artisan
Preparing Your System for Calibration
1 Make sure that your color settings are set to "millions" or at least 16-bit color.
2 Make sure your display is set to "Professional" mode. To do this, press the "Picture Effect" button on the front of your GDM-C520
display until the on-screen display shows the text "Professional".
3 Warm your display up by leaving the display on and displaying a relatively bright screen (over 50% white) for at least an hour before
4 Make sure that the Artisan
Sensor is connected to one of your computer's USB ports.
5 Lower the light in the room to under 64 lux. Ideally, the ambient light level should be approximately 16 lux.
Calibrating Your System
1 Double-click on the Artisan
icon to start the application. The main screen will appear.
2 Choose a target colorspace from the "Target Colorspace" dropdown menu. Choose from the following three options:
Print RGB D50: Standard colorspace for U.S. prepress and printing professionals.
Print RGB D65: Standard colorspace for European prepress and printing professionals.
Web RGB (sRGB): Standard colorspace for output limited to computer displays, TV, and video.
3 Click the "Calibrate" button.
4 Center the Artisan
Sensor over the target in the middle of the screen, using the hash marks on the screen and sensor to guide this
5 Click the "Start" button. Your system will take approximately 10 minutes to fully calibrate.
6 When the calibration is done, a "Calibration Complete" message will appear. Remove the sensor.
7 The new calibration is now active, and is displayed under the "Calibration Data" dropdown menu on the main screen.
