Apple's Yosemite version of Mac OS X (v10.10) has just been released.
We've completed some preliminary testing for ColorThink 3.0.3 and Curve 3.0.1 and both seem to be running well.
We'll be testing Maxwell and the Maxwell Client on Yosemite in the days ahead and will let you know if we find any issues.
So far, so good!

Hey everyone… I just spent an hour discussing color management on the NEC Google+ hangout panel. It was a live discussion and a YouTube video recording is available at NEC Google+ hangout discussion. Check it out!

Maybe this seems rather regressive, but in a day and age when people are using their phones to send text messages, this could be the next Big Thing.
Did you know you can calibrate an Eizo to produce a perfectly black and white display? I didn't. A recent post in ColorForums got me doing some research in this vein. There are a couple of ways to do this. One is to create an RGB profile in Photoshop but define the primary colors using very low-chroma primary colors. Eizo's ColorNavigator software can be called in to emulate that profile on their display and you end up with a mostly black and white display. An even better way to get a more completely neutral result is to go into the ColorNavigator advanced feature that allows you to independently adjust contrast, saturation and such on 6 colors. I removed all saturation, re-calibrated, and now have a perfectly calibrated black and white display. (I wonder if I can get 'I love Lucy' on this...?)
