Calibration and File Specs
To improve the accuracy of consistent colour reproduction we recommend regularly calibrating you monitor. We recommend using ‘ i1 DISPLAY PRO ‘ by X-Rite to calibrate your monitor to display colours according to the correct standards.
This is available for purchase through Bond Imaging. Alternatively, we have hardware on site for our clients to borrow for a small fee. If you are unsure about this process, please contact customer service to discuss, we can arrange for someone to come out and show you how to calibrate your system if required.
