Survey

The purpose of this survey is to give you the power to influence the feature set of our future monitor calibration and profiling tool. No personal information will be shared with third parties. No mailing list, no spam. Only those who sign up for the beta testing program and provide valid email will receive notification once the program is in place.

The survey takes 3-7 minutes to complete. N/A is a very powerful answer and means one of or any combination of “not applicable”, “not answered”, “I don’t know”, “I don’t really care”, “I forgot to answer the question”, “This question is retarded”

*CPS – calibration/profiling system




*Performance or quality of calibration is determined by color accuracy, smoothness and lack of artifacts. Common artifacts are banding, posterization, color/tone reversals
