dispcalGUI is a graphical user interface for the display calibration and profiling tools of Argyll CMS, an open source color management system.
Calibrate and characterize your display devices using one of the many supported measurement instruments, with support for multi-display setups and a variety of available settings like customizable whitepoint, luminance, tone response curve as well as the option to create accurate look-up-table ICC profiles as well as some proprietary 3D LUT formats. Check the accuracy of profiles and 3D LUTs via measurements.

Great software! I compared Colormunki Display software that come with calibrator with Argyll/Dispcalgui. I got much better contrast with Dispcalgui. Best result with Colormunki was 850:1 (and even lower on all on auto - 650:1) and with Dispcalgui 1150:1. Its even visible with naked eye that you get more contrast. Also more accurate colors!
A big thumbs up for both DispcalGUI and Argyll. The validation,reporting and and screen uniformity features alone make it stand out from many bundled software that come with the popular sensors. All in all, spend the time to find the optimum settings for your screen and be a happy camper. Once that is done, keep running as it is set. 5 mins for mediocre results at best (bundled sw) or 10-18 mins for professional results just sya once a month? I know what I will pick: DispcalGUI powered by Argyll. It reminds me of slow cooking; more time DOES produce much more thoughrough results (Argyll) and now it is easy to use and configure with the GUI (DispcalGUI).
A must have!
Excellent tool !!!!
dispcalGUI works with my Datacolor Spyder3 in Linux Fedora 18. But I just wish it had better documentation (an offline PDF) explaining in detail all of the options and industrty jargon to prile/calibrate a display.
