    Default White Point for IPC

    Hi all,
    I have a Spyder4Pro and I am trying to set callibration for competition digital files. Its recommended: white point: D65, Brightness: 120, and Gamma: -2.2.
    When I am trying to set white point, I'm not offered anything with a "D" on it, only temperature in Kelvin. Would D65 equal 6500K?

    Thanks!
    Marie

    Marie, Yes, D65 has a correlated color temperature of 6500K.

    A WP of 6500K is a range of colors, it isn't an exact specification. Further, your Spyder package may have a 6500K setting, but another package with an identical setting will not ensure the same WP. I know, in a prefect world it would. You can set the WP to 6500K (which isn't the same as D65) but keep in mind, this might produce a visual match to someone else's display with the same setting, might not.

    This might give you a better idea of what the various calibration settings do, why and when to set them:
