How to use BenQ SW Displays Multiple Calibration Slots with multiple computers!



hi I'm Marcin one saying I'm a BenQ brand ambassador and an X right Colorado and in this video what I like to do is focus on the bank you SW line of display the BenQ SU line of display is a professional heart where calibrate display that are designed specifically for photographers and create a professional who needs really good super accurate colors the nice part about having a hardware calibrated display is that all the color profiling is actually done within the panel itself this way you get a much smoother tone and better color now what happened is that what all the bank us of you lines of display it all comes with multiple calibration slots so that makes it very easy for us create a professional who works on multiple device to set our calibration slot so that we can for instance set its calibration slot one for our desktop and for instance calibration slot two specifically for our laptop or our portable devices anyone that we may have now provided that we have come in and initially and calibrate at both of the devices we could just simply plug the devices in and simply just set up the calibration slot to for example slot one for the desktop or slot two for the laptop now for the display I have here this is s OVU two seven one is there 4k display and is one of the later models with the later firmware this also includes SW 240 as well and the reason why I call out these two individual models because there are the newer newer models with newer firmware and it comes with three calibration slots so when you have three calibration slot this kind of opens up a lot more room for creativity and how we can use it so for instance if we have a display like this one here with three custom hardware calibration slot what I can do is for instance I can reserve two first two for just my desktop and I can for instance come in and play with what I call or what I like to call do illuminance so for instance on calibration slot one I can set the luminance to eighty Candela so this will be a darker luminance that I can kind of view and when I'm doing editing and I can also set for example calibration slot to for 120 Candela so the 120 Candela would be my reference so I can see the difference between 80 and 120 I can flip back and forth between them and determine the print brightness or depict for the pictures that I'm editing for that matter now because it has a thirst slot I can specifically assigned a third slot to my laptop and now I have my devices for example my desktop in this case and also my laptop covered and also I can do a luminance with it so in this video I like to show you how you can do that and how you can set these up now I'm going to show you briefly how you go through the palette master element setup screen I'm not going to go through to full calibration I made a separate palette master element calibration video and I'm going to put that link in the video in the description so that you can go and check out that video if you have any further questions about how to use palette master element and do calibration so let's get on with this and now we are going to start calibrating slot 1 so we're gonna come here and click on start we're gonna choose profiling which is already selected for us by default click Next now this is the screen where we would come in and set the luminance point in this case because I mentioned that this is going to be for our desktop device and this display this specific model has three calibration slot 4 slot 1 what I like to do is set the display a little bit darker so I'm gonna go ahead and set this to 80 Candela just go ahead and put the cursor in there erase the value that was there before and just type in 80 and you're fairly set go ahead and click on next here and now this is where you would come in so in this screen the cell you would pick the calibration slot that you want to do it for so right now always is going to default the calibration one however if I want to choose an utter calibration slot what I can do is go ahead and click on a drop-down list here and in this case you can see there's calibration 2 & 3 now if your BenQ SMU series of display only has two calibration slot it will only show calibration one in caliber a Shinto so this also gives you a visual cue as well if you're not if you're uncertain whether your model has two or three calibration slots now like I said in this case we're gonna go ahead and select one the next thing what I recommend that you all do is dis is come in here and I would just go ahead and erase the name for the most part that is given you here so in this case we're gonna keep the dot ICC profile as the extension to the file and we're going to delete it so right now on the name to file I have SW 271 and dot ICC space on ICC what I'm gonna do in this case is I'm gonna put in L 80 now if you need to know what calibration slot you can you set this to you can actually do for example I'm gonna go so put Cal 1 this way I know luminance is set to 80 on this one and his calibration slot 1 once you have set this pick the number of size patch you want to use and click on start measurement so now that you have finished calibrating slot one we're gonna start the whole process again and calibrate the display for slot two so in this case like I said we're gonna start again we're going to do profiling here come again click on next and this is where again we would come in and change the luminance value so in previously for slot one we have set the luminance value for eighty in this case I'm gonna go ahead and set the luminance value for 120 go ahead and type that in there we're going to go ahead and click on next and this is where we would come in and click the calibration slot here and we're going to go ahead and click down and in choose calibration – in this case so we're doing this so that we can actually target this calibration for 120 Candela to slot two as you can see palette master element is talking to the display and is already adjusting the display itself – calibration slot – now one of the things that I would recommend that you do again as well here is to come in and also make sure that you set the naming convention properly so that you know what luminance value it is in this case we're going to go ahead and set luminance value for SW to 71 l120 that's for a luminance 120 Candela and then we're going to put in the word Cal – this is for calibration slot 2 so we're gonna go ahead and do that and you just go ahead and click on start measurement so now that we have the display slot 1 and slot to calibrate it for our new illuminance in this case on my Mac Pro desktop here I'm going to show you a few of the settings that you need to make sure that you set every time you flip between each different calibration slots this way you are setting the correct profile that corresponds to the proper calibration slot so the first thing I'm going to do here is go into system preferences and under display I'm going to choose color now in this case I already have profile this off camera and so the profile name may be a little different but I know that the SMU right there on mice SW 271 el ainy or luminous ad Candela in this case corresponds in slot 1 and the one right above it the SW 2 7 1 al 120 120 Candela corresponds to slot 2 in this case I'm gonna go ahead and start with slot 1 first so I'm gonna go ahead and select SMU 271 la T and I'm going to come to the hockey puck now which is another convenient feature that the been qsub line display have so I'm gonna go ahead and press any button really and in this case like the center brother I just press the ok button go into this mode right here this is a color mode and under color mode I want to make sure that if I'm on 80 Candela or calibration one I want to make sure to a sled on slot 1 right there or calibration 1 as you can see there this is properly set this is the proper viewing for 80 Candela and also the proper profile for it now let's see if I'm editing a photo and I like to go into the 120 Candela for reference this time well if I want to be really thorough about it what I need to do here is come here and click on SW 120 excuse me right there back swl 120 there we go and then what I'm gonna do here is come back to the hockey puck back to the color mode and I'm going to go ahead and set this to calibration too so once I've done this you will you may notice in the video the display is a touch brighter that's because this is about 40 Candela brighter than calibration one this is calibration slot 2 so that's how you would switch between the two different do illuminance mode now I'm also going to make a separate video as well on how you can customize these custom function buttons on the hockey puck so that you can easily switch between different calibration modes without having to go through the entire display menu or part of the display menu like I've shown earlier so now I have the laptop connected to the display because this BenQ display has three calibration slot I'm going to use calibration slot 3 to hold the custom profile for my laptop specifically so in this case I would go through the calibration again with my laptop again here I'm going to come here and go ahead and click on start profiling would palette master element this is where again I would come in and set the luminance level in this case I'm going to set the luminance level to 80 click Nick's and this is where I would come in and again pick the calibrations law in this case because I'm going to use calibration slot 3 I'm going to go ahead and click on the drop down list click calibration slot 3 right there give it a second because the display is now communicating with palette master element and switching over to the calibration slot 3 you saw the screen flicker a moment ago this is actually the displays changing through to the other calibration slot so in this case we're going to slot 3 again if you want to come in and give this a custom profile name I highly recommend that you do that a couple of tips make sure you leave the dot ICC at the end in this case I'm going to go ahead and use this um say SW 271 LED now I'm not naming this profile specifically for my laptop because the profile is just going to be on my laptop it won't commingle on my desktop so I don't really have to worry about defining which machine I'm using this on once you're done with this go ahead and click on start measurement and just do the profiling just a few tips about laptop calibration if you have your laptop set on mirroring display that means the BenQ display is showing the same as the built-in internal display of laptop palette master element we'll give you an error and it will stop you from calibrating to profile it will tell you exactly what you need to do but just in case you run into problems you'll know the other thing too is that I will put a link to a video in the description below this and that is a video on how you can calibrate your laptop using AI one profiler and that video shows you a lot tips and tricks on how to get the best calibration and how to get the best profile out of your laptop that includes turning off a lot of features in terms of power saving and also color different color management such as night shift on a MacBook Pro and so forth but now that I have the calibration done from my laptop what I'm going to do here is go ahead and make sure I'm gonna start with the BenQ in this case so a couple of things it doesn't really matter whether you change the calibration slot on the display first or you do the software profile on the computer first it really doesn't matter as long as you set them to the corresponding one you're good so in this case I'm going to go ahead and come on the hockey puck here and go ahead and press just the center button okay to make sure that it acknowledged me in case it did I'm gonna go into the color mode right now and I'm gonna go ahead and set this to calibration 3 there we go and now what I'm gonna do is come into my Mac system under System Preferences and again I'm going to go in under display color and in this case I'm going to go ahead and pick the e SW 271 MBP luminance 80 I put down MVP from MacBook Pro again the profile name doesn't match up exactly what I've shown earlier because I've actually done the calibration off screen in order for us to save time again if you'd like to see a video on how to do a full calibration wear palette master element I will put a link in the description below this video then you can go ahead and click on there and watch that video so now that we are finished with our calibration you now know how to calibrate your bank USU line display for multiple devices or for a single device for dual luminance I hope that you find this video useful and if you have any questions please feel free to leave them in a comment
