NEC SpectraView and ICC profiles

So I'm a bit confused about something...

With my old monitor, I would calibrate, and a file would be written that tells the graphics card how to adjust it's colors.

I'm receiving a NEC monitor tomorrow with SpectraView, and that is supposed to do the adjustment in the monitor itself and not involve the graphics card.

So if my old profile is still present on my computer, will my graphics card use that as well as the monitor doing it's own thing with it's LUT's?

Do I need to delete all my old ICC profiles, or will the SpectraView software just create a blank one?

Thanks,

Peter

PS - I hope this thing is noticeably better than my SPVA panel Samsung 245T for what it cost me!

Re: NEC SpectraView and ICC profiles

There are two routines going on. One is calibration which adjusts the display. That can be done on the graphic card but its much better to do this in high bit within the panel. That’s what the NEC Spectraview will do. The 2nd part is the profile that defines the display behavior. You need that in both cases. Delete the older ICC profiles for a display no longer hooked up to your machine.
