ChromaPure 2.5.8.24553 is now available for download.

New Features

Added support for the Colorimetry Research CR-250 spectroradiometer

Added support for the Spyder 5 colorimeter

Added support for the Display 3 II colorimeter*

Added a control panel in the Options module for the Display 3 colorimeter that provides the user with extensive control over the performance of the meter.

Added luminance to the Meter Correction module.

Bug Fixes

Fixed a problem with the DVDO TPG signal generator outputting PC values in some modules.

* The Display 3 II is a Rev B of the X-Rite i1D3 colorimeter. This meter includes new hardware/firmware features that support refresh rate synchronization (must use the AIO read mode). This requires the user to point the meter at a 100% test pattern during initialization.

ChromaPure is my software of choice for calibration right now. :T I have a Professional license for ChromaPure and an Enthusiast license for CalMAN

I prefer ChromaPure over CalMAN at the moment because it's a bit more straight forward and it's a bit zippier. CalMAN 4.0 load times are pretty slow. And I run them on a Core i7 740QM laptop. I think ChromaPure might be a tad bit cheaper as well. But I haven't compared them in quite some time. If you looking for calibration software I'd recommend either of them. CalMAN is very easy to use for beginners while ChromaPure is more for people who know what they are doing.

One of these days I need to get a write up for both of these. :scratch:

Well, I wasn't looking for software, but now I am considering it all of a sudden. It's the one piece of gear I really don't have yet, but have been considering off and on for a while now.

Depending upon what you want, you could just get an i1Display2 bundle from either company for less than $500. I believe Spectracal offers a bundle with a Colormunki Spectro for around $600. You can also get a Chroma5 bundle from ChromaPure for the same price. The Chroma5 can be bought as a Pro version for $100 more. Tom explains the advantages of the Pro here. Spectracal offers a similar enhanced Chroma5 product with their software as well.

If you want my recommendation, I'd go with a beginner type setup with the i1Display2. Either software package would work. CalMAN includes help within their program while ChromaPure has several video tutorials on their site. Store the meter in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. I keep my i1D2 clone in a ziploc bag that has another bag within containing desiccant.

Version 2.2 is out.

ChromaPure 2.2 Release Notes

This release includes the following new features:

  1. Auto-Calibrate. This is an optional add-on that works with a DVDO Duo or Lumagen Radiance external processor. After selecting some basic options, it provides a comprehensive calibration with no user input. Auto-Calibrate is available to ChromaPure Standard users for $149. It is free for ChromaPure Professional users. ChromaPure Professional users should contact user support for a license upgrade to enable this option.
  2. QuickReports. This new feature allows users to quickly and easily generate basic reports within the application that summarize data in the Pre/Post-Grayscale and Pre/Post Color Gamut modules. These single-page reports can be exported as PDF, Word, or as an image file.
  3. 5% measurement increments have been added to the White Balance and Raw Data modules.
  4. We are offering a new version of ChromaPure, ChromaPure Plus. The MSRP for this version is $300. It adds support for the AccuPel video test pattern generators.
It is available for download here.

2.2.7 out now.

ChromaPure 2.2.7 Release Notes

New Features

  • PRO meters now include corrections for LG LED and LCD displays.
  • In consultation with X-Rite, we made an adjustment to our i1 Display Pro III support that provides significantly better repeatability at low light levels.
  • The Color Management module now includes a CIE chart.
  • The Advanced Color Management module now includes support for the Lumagen Radiance as a signal generator.
  • When initializing the JETI 1211 spectroradiometer, the application now automatically measures and sets the cycle rate of the target display.
Bug Fixes

  • The AccuPel signal generator would lose default settings after working in the Advanced Color Management module. This has been fixed.
  • Connection to the selected meter would be lost when cancelling out of the Options module. This has been fixed.
  • If the user neglected to initialize a meter before selecting auto-advance, the system would become unstable when taking grayscale readings.
  • The system allowed users to select a null value from the signal generator drop-down. This has been fixed.
Download it here.

Version 2.2.8 of ChromaPure released

Version 2.2.8 is now available for download.

ChromaPure 2.2.8 Release Notes

There is only one change in this build. After additional testing and customer comments, we have further refined support for the i1 Display Pro III colorimeter. This version offers a better compromise between speed and low-light repeatability. There are two things to keep in mind about this version.

  • Single readings below 1 cd/m2 outside of auto-cal will be very slow. This is normal. All other readings should be as fast or faster than in 2.2.7
  • Do not use measurement smoothing with the Display 3 colorimeter. It will only slow readings down without improving repeatability. It still may be useful with other color analyzers.

The DLP Rear Projection Mode can be added to existing licenses without recalibration (contact ChromaPure Technical Support). The LED Projection Modes can only be added to existing licenses during recalibration.

We have also improved the read performance of the Display 3 colorimeter in Front Projection-Lens mode.
