We have just purchased an Eizo CX240 Monitor and we connect it to a Sony Vaio AW series laptop for critical photoediting. The Sony laptop has an Adobe 1998 gamut,similar to the Eizo. However,we calibrate the Sony with Datacolor Sypder 3 Elite calibrator and software,which is fine.
When we try to calibrate the Eizo monitor,the supplied ColorNavigator software does not work,it conflicts with the Spyder 3 software. We have to uninstall the Spyder 3 software from the laptop and run ColorNavigator on the Monitor. We would like both the monitor and the Sony laptop calibrated and profiled to the same settings (white point,etc) so that the images on both are colour managed and look similar.
The only ways round this appear to be :-
a. Calibrate both the laptop and Monitor with the Syder 3 package,but then you lose the advantages of using ColorNavigator with the Monitor.
b. Calibrate the Monitor first with the ColorNavigator,then install the Spyder3 software on the laptop and calibrate it. When it comes to recalibrating in say a month,the Spyder software has to be uninstalled from the laptop in order to calibrate the Monitor with ColorNavigator,etc.
Any tips from anyone who has experienced this issue.

You've paid a fortune to use Eizos hardware calibration.......use it.
Chances are you'll never match the laptop anyway.
Can the Graphics card handle dual LUT's? If not you will only be able to calibrate and profile one monitor & I agree with Keith...
Thanks,I know that calibrating the Monitor is what counts. The Sony does have a 17in screen with full Adobe 1998 gamut so it would be nice to continue using its capabilities.
Maybe use BasicColor Display to calibrate both, which should retain hardware calibration in the Eizo?
Not sure it's something worth chasing though - I'd be inclined to agree with Keith and just use the Sony screen for spare space, regardless of its wide gamut.
