Well of course, DreamWorks contributed the original SpectroScanT
driver for Argyll, since they used it to create profiles for
their film recorder. When I was (very kindly) given a tour
of the campus after a SIGGRAPH a few years ago, they showed me
some of the work they had been doing in setting up the calibration
of all their artists workstations. They basically had developed
their own calibration solution (given that they have a small
department looking after such things, this is hardly surprising).
I haven't been in contact with the guys there since 2001 though.
