Virtually all monitors on the market today can be connected, however, to get the best results we recommend monitors that support extended DDC communication and hardware calibration (read: System Info Monitor). 

General Requirements

Before purchasing Displays- check for: 

  • Wide viewing angles- if viewing angle changes, the color can change, understand this number. 180°/180° degrees is the theoretical maximum, larger is better
  • Uniformity - non-uniform displays are useless, therefore uniformity test is critical, ideally test with CC Display before purchase.
  • Gamut - (range of displayable color) - Ensure display gamut is greater than desired working space (i.e. GRACoL if soft proofing to GRACoL); Ideally test with CC Display before purchase.

Also, there are some additional recommendation 

  • The monitor should matt, anti-glare surface
  • It should be able to rich expected brightness - e.g. 160 cd/m2
  • DDC preferred hardware calibration is highly recommended

System Info Monitor

CC Display reports information about the type of communication.

 Calibration type NOT possible Limited LUT 

DDC in B&W

DDC in color:

Full Hardware Full Hardware

The graphic card is unable
to hold video LUTs.

Calibration will be done
in Video-LUTs
on the graphic card.
 The white luminance can
be set via DDC/CI.
This prevents the necessity
of setting the luminance
via video-LUTs.

In addition, color temperature
can be set via DDC/CI.

Connection - various standard


Consult your Display and Graphic Card manuals to find the best connection type. Be sure that the cable supports the required specifications. Note that some standards, for example, HDMI have several specifications (1,0 — 2.1) and use different connector types (from A to E).

Some older NEC monitors listed here may have problems with hardware calibration - use software calibration instead.. Unfortunately, NEC discontinued the production and development of displays for the graphic industry.
