Adjusting the Color Temperature
— COLOR TEMP ADJ Menu
The monitor can memorize the data for up to three
color temperatures (STD, COL1, COL2.) The data for
each color temperature is adjusted with the COLOR
TEMP ADJ menu. The data of the color temperature
selected in the INPUT CONFIG menu is adjusted.
Color temperature adjustment can be made in the
following three ways:
• Knob adjustment (MANUAL menu)
You can adjust the color temperature with the bias
and gain knobs.
• Automatic adjustment using a probe
You can use the following probes for automatic
adjustment of color temperature. Except for the Sony
BKM-14L, a cable is required to connect the color
analyzer to the monitor.
