Spectracal's Derek Smith Geeks out About Color Calibration

SpectraCal co-founder and CEO Derek Smith explains the company's new Color Cube Calibration system in the Lumagen Radiance video processor and SpectraCal's CalMan 5 software, which uses the same type of lookup tables (LUTs) as those found in high-priced professional processors to adjust the colors produced by video displays. Unlike color-management systems in most consumer products, Color Cube adjusts the three primaries (red, green, blue) and three secondaries (yellow, cyan, magenta) at many different brightness levels, resulting is much more accurate color reproduction.

With over 25 years of experience as a software developer, Derek Smith founded SpectraCal in 2006 to provide the best calibration software for the video enthusiast. In addition, he is a second-degree black belt, extreme skier, and professional racecar driver—in other words, just a bit of an adrenaline junkie.
