  • How do you calibrate a monitor? I want to fix the colours on my M28U monitor

    I haven't watched the video but just in case it isn't mentioned there I want to mention it here: You need to consider Windows' inability to properly color manage, you will see oversaturated colors in most applications unless you use a tool like:

    So in order to view SDR colors created and meant for sRGB color space, we must also make sure our display device is adhering to that color space if we want to see the colors truly as they were meant to be. This is where clamping comes to play. There are several ways we can achieve this. Wide gamut displays often come with what they call "sRGB" mode and in this mode displays limits it's gamut to sRGB in attempts of showing you SDR content as it was meant to be. Through time I often had hard time with this mode as often the display locks you out of any color controls and you can not calibrate the display in this mode leaving you having to trust their sRGB implementation. Another way of approaching this are small applications that do this on a software level, here is one such app I have happily used through time.

    u/dogelition_man I have tried the novideo_srgb and a few other apps like it. You can definitely see them making a change when you turn the dithering off, as the test image they have changes, but when I record the screen with a screen recorder on my pc like OBS no change is happening in the recorded video. So I am assuming these apps are only disabling the monitor's own dithering. It also does nothing in reducing the pain.

    You can use novideo_srgb to control the dithering. Make sure that you're not using FRC on your monitor (e.g. if it's a 8 + 2 bit FRC monitor, make sure to run it at 8 bit and not 10 bit). AFAIK, with full range RGB output, the "default" dither setting should be off, and with limited range it'll apply dither. Either way, you should be able to turn it off completely in novideo_srgb.

    I would also recommend investigating dwm_lut or novideo_srgb as alternatives to actually applying the profile, as they're actually a bit more robust than the native Windows color management system.
  • Need some advice for new monitor
    2 projects | /r/buildapcmonitors | 12 Jun 2022
    The main problem with that model was lack of the sRGB mode, but apparently they added it with a firmware update. It sucks as usual, locking white balance, which is, sadly, the case for almost every monitor. There are 3rd party solutions to oversaturation, though, like novideo_srgb, but I’ve never used it myself, and I know it may cause additional issues like color banding (like any kind of GPU-side calibration).
