1. Before performing monitor adjustment, turn on both the monitor and the
computer (warming up)
Attention
• To perform SelfCorrection, a warming-up time for at least 60 minutes is required.
Note
• To obtain precise adjustment results, the monitor and computer must be sufficiently warmed-up.
• The warming-up time varies depending on the monitor being used. For details on the warming-up time, see the User's
Manual of the monitor.
2. Disable the power managing function of the computer
Disable the power managing function of the computer so it does not enter power saving mode.
Attention
• If the computer goes into power saving mode, the monitor is in the same state as the power off state and therefore
requires a while for the brightness and color conditions to re-stabilize once it comes out of power saving mode.
3. Set the display resolution and colors
We suggest using the monitor with the recommended resolution.
Set the monitor color at 16.7 million (24 bit) or more.
Note
• About the recommended resolution of the monitor, see the user’s manual of the monitor.

Select an adjustment target that was set previously, and adjust the monitor to the target. Adjust the monitor
according to the following procedures.
Attention
• When ColorNavigator is started, the monitor automatically switches to CAL mode or EMU mode (i.e. Calibration mode or
Emulation mode). The monitor adjustment result is only registered in CAL mode or EMU mode. Use CAL mode or EMU
mode for the monitor.
• If the monitor has two or more CAL modes, the monitor adjustment result is registered in the specified CAL mode.
• If the monitor has an EMU mode, the monitor adjustment result is registered in the EMU mode when color gamut calibration
is performed, or in the CAL mode when color gamut calibration is not performed.
• If the monitor is CG232W, you can adjust the monitor only with the DVI or D-Sub input signal. The adjustment result of the
DVI or D-Sub input signal can be applied to the SDI input signal.

Chapter 7 Validating Adjustment Status of
Monitor
This chapter describes how to validate the monitor adjustment status with respect to the adjustment target of the
monitor.
Validating the monitor verifies the degree to which the state of the adjusted monitor matches the adjustment target.
To do this, the monitor with the color patch to be used for the validation displayed is measured and then the resulting
value is compared to the logical value to check the degree of matching.
The combination of the color patches (validation target) can be specified as either the RGB type or CMYK type.
1. In the main window, select an adjustment target and click “Validate”
Attention
• Monitor validation cannot be performed using the built-in calibration sensor of CG2420 / CG2730.
• When using the built-in calibration sensor to perform CMYK validation, depending on the system environment or
software, the tool bar, menu bar, Dock, or task bar may be detected by the sensor and result in incorrect CMYK
validation. Move the window by following the message instructions so that a color patch is displayed on the sensor.
• The ColorEdge CS / CX series supports only RGB type validation.
Note
• Validation can be performed in the adjustment result window.
• When you use a CMYK type validation target, you need to prepare software to display the color patch. The software
used for displaying the color patch is as follows:
- Adobe Photoshop CC2018 / CC2017 / CC2015.5 / CC2015 / CC 2014 / CC / CS6 / CS5.1 / CS5 / CS4
- Adobe Acrobat XI Pro / X Pro / 9 Pro / 8 Professional
- Adobe Acrobat 7 Professional (Windows only)
- Adobe Acrobat Pro DC
• For details about the support policies and supporting operating systems of software products that can be used to display
the color patch, refer to the support information about the relevant product.
• When you validate the monitor in a Mac environment, it is recommended that Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Acrobat Pro
DC be used in order to obtain the correct validation results.
• When the CMYK type of monitor validation is performed in the multiple monitor configuration, the ICC profile of
the main monitor (primary monitor) may be applied depending on the software used to display the color patch. If the
main monitor is not set as the validation target, the validation may finish with a worse result than the actual one. Set the
validation target as the main monitor, then perform validation again.

Chapter 16 Glossary
6 Colors
The saturation and hue of the three primary colors (Red, Green, Blue) and the additive colors (Yellow, Cyan,
Magenta) of the monitor can be adjusted separately. This produces an effect when you want to adjust only
particular color and suit the view to the printing one without changing whole color of the image.
Fogra
An organization of Germany that performs researches, developments and validations related to printing.
They have provided various standards for printing.
Gain Adjustment
Adjusts each color parameter for red, green and blue. An LCD monitor displays the color by the light passing
through the panel color filter. Red, green and blue are the three primary colors. The colors on the monitor are
displayed by combining these three colors. The color tone can be changed by adjusting the light intensity
(volume) passing through each color’s filter.
Gamma
Generally, the relationship that the light intensity values of a monitor change nonlinearly to the input signal
level is called “Gamma Characteristic”. When the gamma value is low, the middle tone area is displayed
brighter, and darker when high. Changes to the gamma value will not affect contrast. A gamma value
appropriate for the display content should be selected.
GRACoL (General Requirements for Applications in Commercial Offset
Lithography)
The standard of digital color proof for commercial sheet fed offset printing provided by IDEAlliance.
IDEAlliance (International Digital Enterprise Alliance)
IDEAlliance is a nonprofit membership organization of U.S.A. that promotes the efficiency of business with
advanced technology in the area of media, publishing and content.
L*
L* is a lightness value based on the CIELUV and CIELAB color spaces. CIELUV and CIELAB are color
spaces that describe the relationship between color and human vision, in which L* corresponds to perceived
brightness.
LUT (Look up Table)
The gamma characteristic may be represented numerically for example as “Gamma = 2.2”. However, a table
is used whenever the characteristic cannot be represented in this way. This table is called LUT (Look up
Table). In ICC profiles, the gamma characteristic may be represented either numerically or as an LUT.
When creating an adjustment target using ColorNavigator, an ICC profile can be loaded. If the selected
profile indicates the gamma characteristic as an LUT, “LUT” is displayed.

Chapter 16 Glossary
Resolution
A measurement that defines the clarity with which an image can be represented. It is defined by the number
of pixels which can be displayed per line multiplied by the number of lines on the screen such as “1024 ×
768”. The more number of pixels, the more information the image has.
sRGB (Standard RGB)
“International Standard for Red, Green, and Blue color space”. A color space was defined with the aim of the
color matching between applications and hardware devices, such as monitors, scanners, printers and digital
cameras. As a standard default space, sRGB allows Internet users to closely match colors.
SWOP (Specifications Web Offset Publications)
The standard for commercial web offset printing provided by IDEAlliance.
Temperature
Color Temperature is a method to measure the white color tone, generally indicated in degrees Kelvin. At
high temperatures the white tone appears somewhat blue, while at lower temperatures it appears somewhat
red. Computer monitors generally give best performance at high temperature settings.
5000 K: Slightly reddish white (usually used in print industry)
6500 K: White called daylight color (suited for displaying photos and web browsing)
9300 K: Slightly bluish white (usually used for television)
Video Card Gamma
The data used to correct the signal output from the computer. Software calibration corrects the monitor by
using the video card gamma. Because ColorNavigator does not use video card gamma, if the video card
gamma has been changed by other software, the adjustment result may not be reflected correctly.
XRGA (X-Rite Standards for Graphic Arts)
The calibration standard specified by X-Rite and used for X-Rite’s measurement devices. X-Rite i1Pro 2 has
been calibrated to comply with XRGA. X-Rite i1Pro / Monitor has not been calibrated to comply with XRGA
by default. Ask X-Rite for calibration so that they can calibrate the device to comply with XRGA.
