The X-Rite i1 Display Pro can calibrate and profile LCD, CCFL and LED monitors, laptop screens and projectors. Colour perfectionists know that a calibrated and profiled display is a critical element in an efficient digital workflow. Nobody wants to spend hours at their monitor perfecting images only to find that their display wasn’t accurately representing their digital files. What you see on your monitor (or projector) has to match your digital file or you will never be happy with the result, no matter how much time you devote to perfecting it.
So, if you are looking for an easy to use but very accurate monitor calibrator then the X-Rite i1 Display Pro is the product for you. Its all new design delivers extremely precise measurements and the included i1 Profiler software gives you all the options to get the very best out of your monitors or projectors. It even has tutorial videos that take you step-by-step through the calibration process. It's ideal for professional photographers, pre-press and retouchers.
Quite simply the X-Rite i1Display Pro is the most accurate calibrator in its price range and the one we use on our own screens. We provide full phone and email support and are happy to talk you through your first calibrations. The i1 Display Pro is fully compatible with Windows 8 and Mac OS 10.10 and third party applications like EIZO ColorNavigator and NEC SpectraView Profiler.

The i1 Display Pro is compatible with a very wide range of display technologies including CCFL, wide gamut CCFL, white LED and RGB LED backlights plus various projector types. The colorimeter has built-in compensation tables for each type of display and as new technologies emerge new tables can be incorporated into software updates. You can also use the i1 Display Pro with software from monitor manufacturers such as EIZO and NEC, and also with other calibration solutions such as BasicColor, HFCR, ChromaPure and many others. The supplied i1 Profiler software is fully compatible with recent operating systems from Apple and Microsoft. You can even use the i1 Display Pro to calibrate your smartphone or tablet using the free ColorTRUE app available for iOS and Android.
The key to really accurate monitor calibration and profiling is flexibility. To get the closest matches between screens or between screen and print you need a very wide range of calibration targets. i1 Profiler allows you to select any brightnes level from 40 to 400 cd/m2, any colour temperature from 5000K to 9300K but also measure any light source or ambient light to match to. You can also specify your own gamma and contrast settings. Getting the closest possible matches is just a question of a little experimentation.
i1 Profiler has two user modes. Basic allows access to the most common options without complicating things with too many choices. It's a good starting point if you are new to monitor calibration. The Advanced mode opens up all the features and is good for experienced users and also if you need to depart from the common settings to get a better match. No matter which user mode you choose the software has lots of clear help text and 'How to' videos to walk you through the process step by step. Once you've created your calibrations you get instant feedback with before/after images - you can even load one of your own pictures!
Every i1 Display Pro is factory calibrated to ensure maximum accuracy, and the advanced design maintains that reliabilty over time and no matter what type of display you measure. The i1 Profiler software can check the quality of the profile you create using industry standard patch sets including FOGRA. Results can be trended over time and you can set your own pass/fail tolerances. You can even check the luminance and colour temperatue uniformity of your monitor.
The i1 Display Pro comes with a lens protector hood that flips around to double as a stand for projector profiling, but it also has a tripod screw mount. All you have to do is darken the room, place the i1 Display Pro facing the screen and run the i1 Profiler software to get a great projector profile.

Excellent for profiling my laptops and main computer screen but have not had any success calibrating my projector

Product was what i was looking for to calibrate my monitor. Great for photography, and even does my iPad or phone and printer

An excellent well made product, although I did have problems calibrating a DELL branded monitor, it wasn't a problem with this unit, but with the Dell supplied software.

I'm fairly new to monitor calibration, but found this unit effective and simple to use.

The i1 Pro is straightforward to install and very speedy in use. It's made a heap of difference to how I see my photos, and now can't see me using a monitor without one attached.

I had been using a competitors' product for several years, but had been unhappy with the results, as the resultant profile always seemed to produce a slightly green cast that I then had to adjust by eye.
As I recently bought the X-rite ColorChecker Passport to calibrate my camera output, I decided to invest in the i1 Display Pro as it was more likely to produce a compatible workflow.
Installation of the iProfiler software on PC and Mac was trouble-free, other than having to install the Device Services patch on the latter before the probe was recognised.
Profiling is straightforward in both simple and advanced modes, and the program identifies the configuration of the probe (ambient diffuser on, etc.) as it goes along. I soon had profiles for my wide gamut main monitor and standard second screen that were a better match than I'd had before, albeit not an exact match due to the limitations of the second display's hardware.
As with the previous kit, I found that the standard luminance target of 120cd/m2 led to a darker image than I was comfortable with; happily you can also use the 'Native' luminance option that allows you to use a brightness setting that you're comfortable with. I now have the probe connected full-time to automatically adjust for changes in ambient light levels.
The ability to calibrate a projector will come in handy for presenting to clients and the camera club, and I just have to sort out paper and inks to take advantage of the free printer profiles.
Overall this is looking like one of my better purchases.

Well made and well engineered product. Easy to use with good user instructions. Much neater package than my Spyder 2 calibrator which is still in use on LCD backlite monitor.

Bought it to replace my i1Display 2 which become unusable due to it's age (incorrect measurments, faulty sensors etc).
i1Display Pro can calibrate wide gamut as well, basically the device that every serious photographer should have.
Been using it on Mac with i1 Profiler software, no problems whatsoever.
