At the Dock, click the Matchprint Virtual folder icon.
Select MV Preferences and click the Settings tab.
Double-click your monitor type.
Select the monitor.
Select Fixed Luminance Method, and set the luminance level to 200 or 10% below the maximum luminance value (If you have upgraded the software, confirm or set the luminance level to the level in your previous setting.)
Note: For NEC monitors, there is also a setting for NEC PA Uniformity Correction Level.
The default value is 3. This setting is similar to what is found on the monitor and overrides it. The default value has been proven to provide better luminance and longevity of the monitor.
- Double-click General Settings.
a. In the Measuring Device list, select the Eye-One or Eye-One Display measuring device.
- Double-click Light Source Selection.
In the Light Source Selection list, select either GTI - Graphic Technology, Inc (default) or JN - Just Normlicht.
A message appears, notifying you that the change will uncalibrate your system.

If you applied the white point adjustment option, check the values in MV Preferences.
Note: For information about setting the white point adjustment, see the Adjusting the White Point of Your Monitor document.
Calibrate the monitor.
When calibration is complete, the following message appears:
Calibrate System on this monitor passed
Color Verification (dE ICE 1994):
If you have a viewing booth, you must set the viewing booth luminance to match the monitor luminance.
Failure to do so may result in a poor color match between hard copy and virtual proofs.
Note: Replace the monitor when it can no longer achieve a luminance level of 120.
For information about setting the viewing booth luminance, see the Matchprint Virtual Best Viewing Practices Guide.
Once you have confirmed that the monitor and the Kodak reference proof match, you can use your own reference proof and profiles for color qualification.
