Why Use ColorNavigator Software?: ColorEdge

Bundled with all the monitors featured in the ColorEdge series is the ColorNavigator software, designed for advanced colour management.

The ColorNavigator software works with external colour sensors which allow the user to manage in detail all aspects of color reproduction, including the colour temperature of the screen and the colour gamut.

This means that users can match the colour temperature of the LCD monitor with the white of a particular paper by using a colour sensor (sold separately), users can measure a white point on the paper and set this to white when performing a hardware calibration of the LCD monitor. This allows the user to precisely match the on-screen white and the paper white which means colours that appear on-screen will very closely match those on printed paper. 

Users can also reproduce on screen the Adobe RGB, sRGB, or NTSC color gamut, using a wide color-gamut panel. Colour gamuts can also be emulated by reading existing ICC profiles. For example, you can emulate a client's LCD monitor using their ICC profiles the colours seen on the client's monitor can be reproduced on a ColorEdge monitor. 

ColorNavigator also features functions that encourage users to perform periodic hardware calibration of their LCD monitors and to maintain accurate colour reproduction through precise manual adjustments.
