Interesting. I wonder how it accomplishes that.
Are you saying that the calibrator can manage multiple monitors with corresponding multiple profiles?
My calibrator (a Spyder Pro) is a hardware device ... a colorimeter ... which you hang on the monitor while running the associated software.
The software generates a patch of colour and the colorimeter measures it and generates a profile for that monitor which is applied when the computer is fired up.
I don't quite understand how a calibration profile obtained from one monitor can be applied to another monitor ... or for that matter how a single profile would work for two different monitors. Perhaps if each monitor is being driven by it's own graphics card with each card having it's own profile ... but what about two monitors being driven by the same graphics hardware?
