Professional DIY Calibration Just Became Much More Affordable
News: Professional DIY Calibration Just Became Much More AffordableWe go to great lengths to deliver well calibrated monitors to all of our customers, but like all displays FSI monitors will benefit from regular recalibration over time. It is for this reason that we offer our free recalibration service at both our European and US offices. However, the expense and downtime of shipping units back and forth has long made third party do-it-yourself calibration software an attractive option. An in-house calibration solution also provides you with an unparalleled level of confidence in your display's setup as you can check and recalibrate as often as needed without guessing as to how much a display has drifted over time. This confidence factor alone makes a color management solution a wise investment, but the problem in the past has always been the high cost of entry for truly professional grade calibration options. That's why we are excited to announce several new professional-level calibration options for FSI Monitors that greatly reduce this cost related barrier of entry to accurate in-house calibration.
