Normally an instrument that requires a calibration will
automatically switch to the calibration
view when this becomes necessary, but the Recalibrate menu
item allows an instrument calibration to be performed at other
times as well.
Instruments in a refresh display measurement mode typically need
to calibrate to the refresh rate for best measurement accuracy.
While an attempt to calibrate to the refresh rate will be done
automatically, this menu item allows it to be done more
predictably when the instrument is on a suitable 80% or white
When an instrument is in a pseudo transmittance measurement mode,
it needs to be calibrated for 100% transmittance against the
backlight being used. While this will be done automatically on
selecting such a measurement mode, this menu item allows it to be
repeated if the nature of the backlight has changed.
Some instruments have a fixed integration time measurement mode, and the choice of integration time may need calibrating. While an attempt to calibrate the integration time will be done automatically, this menu item allows it to be done more predictably when the instrument is on a suitable white display patch.
Some instruments are capable of measuring the refresh rate of a
refresh type display (see instrument
capabilities), and this menu item starts such a measurement.
The results will be displayed in the topmost suitable Readout,
until a normal measurement is done. You may need to make sure that
the topmost Readout is from the "Current Measurement" source for
the result to be displayed.
If you try and measure a source that has no discernible flicker,
or the flicker is not in the normal range of a display refresh
rate, then the measurement will fail with a "Measurement failed
with a Measurement misread" error.
All the current Reasurement and Register values can be cleared
using this option. This starts with a "clean slate".
Allows copying of register values, either within the current
Measurement Register set, or from earlier measurement Register set
to the Current set.
Individual register values can be copied, or groups of registers can be copied.
Start the Export
Measurements dialog, to allow saving measurements from the
log to either a Tab Separated Value .TSV file, for an ArgyllCMS
.sp CGATS file.
Start the OEM
file Download and Install dialog. This is to allow
installing instrument related files that are either needed for
their operation, or enhance their operation, such as Display
Calibrations. It can also be used to install Named Color Palettes.
