Uniformity Compensation - 27QHD

Postby jonstatt » Sat 24. Feb 2018, 21:44

Does anyone know exactly what uniformity compensation is meant to do? With it on (default) from a distance the left side of the screen is brighter than the rest. From a distance this looks bad, but very close up it looks okay. With this feature switched off, viewing at a distance is perfect, but close up the left side is dimmer than the rest.

So it seems this feature is not a factory calibration but an offset as you use the Cintiq sitting very close to it? This is not like the NEC Spectraview monitors which also have uniformity compensation but that is a factory process with a meter placed at several points on the screen to calibrate it before it leaves the factory.

Or is it just a coincidence that it seems to compensate for close viewing and it is meant to be a factory calibration process which has gone wrong on my screen?

As far as In know, uniformity compensation should apply slightly different color settings for the different areas of the tablet based on the build in hardware color calibration tables. If not ok, a new color calibration should help. I don't think it should depend on distance.
