Hi all,
I am an enthusiast in color management and calibration. I found over internet and on this forum that people use i1 pro and i1d3 in non-contact modes, but I didn't find any detailed information on non-contact metering setup(distance, angle etc.).

So far I only used meters in "contact" mode directly on the screen(mainly LCD LED/CCFL PC displays), and now I plan to play with few old Sony and Panasonic CRTs and a Samsung LCD LED.

Can somebody shed some light about non-contact metering or point me to a source of information?

Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the forum!

Section 1.2.6 of our CHROMAPURE GRAYSCALE & COLOR CALIBRATION FOR DUMMIES guide has some information on placement:

Thank you on warm welcome,

I have read the whole guide and did a bit more search on the forum.

I found that this thread is also very informative http://www.curtpalme.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=34923&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=non+contact

With all that, I believe that if I am to use my meters in non-contact mode for the CRT and LED tvs I plan to play with, I should point them to centre and put them where the Y value will be highest when reading a, let's say, white patch.

Am I correct? Or am I still not understanding.
