The Display profile results compares the resulting measured behavior of your calibrated color display, to the target values that were defined on the Display Settings page. After the display profile has been created i1Profiler allows users to view the results in 4 different methods:
Your display’s maximum possible luminance, at any particular white point, is based on the capabilities of the hardware. For most high quality displays, i1Profiler will produce a calibrated condition that closely mirrors your target settings for both white point and luminance.
Some digital displays may exhibit lower maximum luminance, due to the capabilities of the display technology or due to the loss of light output over time. In these cases, the achieved luminance of your calibrated display may be significantly lower than the target.
Please note: Your display produces its maximum luminance at its native white point. Typical native white points range between 6500K and 9500K...much higher than the typical target white point.
When simulating a white point that is different than your native color temperature, your display must reduce the light output of its Red, Green, or Blue channels.
Wen using the Native luminance option, the final output luminance of your calibrated display may be lower than your initial luminance before calibration, depending on the target white point selection.
