Calibration and profiling belong inherently to each other.
I will talk in two weeks especially about that
"Connecting Device Calibration to ICC Profiles" at the LGM in Montreal.

EDID is a improvement, VCGT might be a improvement (even though I have
reservations). Canned profiles are an improvement.
This project aims on the quality level at filling the gap between none or
canned profiles one side and individual, hand crafted calibration and
One thing, I am not so clear about, is how to select the best quality from
a series of submmited profiles for the same device calibration. The
initial idea was to use some kind ranking. That might be subject to
Are there papers on the "how to get the best of" toppic or tested
heuristics or projects which deal with similar situations?
