OpenHardware ColorHug+ Announced
Phoronix: OpenHardware ColorHug+ Announced
The ColorHug has been one of the more successful OpenHardware projects of recent times. The ColorHug is an open-source display colorimeter for calibrating LCD panels for accurate displays. This open-source hardware was designed by GNOME's Richard Hughes and obviously features first-rate linux support. He's now working on a new ColorHug+ device...
ColorHug+ seems promising
ColorHug+ seems promising because it is a photospectrometer so it should be able to produce some good results, I believe.
However at that price there are probably existing, mature, proven commercial solutions out there on the market.
I have an old ColorHug, which is a colorimeter.
To me it was a waste of money and was worse than useless.
After calibration the colors was worse than before the calibration.
A colorimeter suck, they're useless without a CCMX (color calibration matrix) which needs to be generated from a photospectrometer.
