Re: Calibration to sRGB in aRGB mode possible?

When you have a different Gamut monitor you can't simply calibrate to
another gamut. You need a serious mathetmatical transform to do it.
That works in theory, but in reality it will still be off, and you
get another set of challenges when you try to calibrate through such
a mathematical transform.

You don’t calibrate a gamut. “Gamut” (the way we use it) refers to the range of colors that a device is capable of capturing or producing. It is an intrinsic quality of the device and doesn’t change.

Further, there is no need to change the gamut on this monitor because the sRGB range is already within the range of this monitor. During calibration, one only needs to select the 16.7 million colors that correspond with sRGB. Or, set the monitor to sRGB and let the OmniColor technology, designed for this very purpose, do its job and give you correct sRGB colors.
