1SourceVideo to Distribute SpectraCal Monitor Calibration Products

(Seattle, WA) – The world’s leading supplier of video calibration software, SpectraCal, Inc., has announced the appointment of 1Source Video as the sole distributor for their computer and Grade-1 monitor calibration products, CalMAN RGB and CalMAN for Resolve.

Since 1997, 1SourceVideo has distributed a range of premier video editing products.  1SourceVideo, based in New Jersey, provides support to more than 1,000 resellers throughout the Americas.

SpectraCal’s CalMAN software is the leading image fidelity solution in the home theater, commercial A/V, medical imaging, geospatial intelligence, broadcast, production, and post-production industries.

“We’re pleased to add SpectraCal’s universally respected solutions to our lineup,” said Frank Conti, 1Source Video’s founder and CEO.  “SpectraCal’s calibration products perfectly compliment many of the other professional video solutions we distribute,” Conti said.

SpectraCal praised 1Source Video’s reputation for integrity, efficiency, and service.  “We’ve been especially impressed with the way 1SourceVideo has helped other video solutions companies grow,” said L.A. Heberlein, SpectraCal’s President.

SpectraCal’s monitor calibration products, now available through 1SourceVideo’s reseller channel, provide video accuracy for critical viewing environments. CalMAN RGB calibrates and creates ICC profiles for computer monitors, while CalMAN for Resolve generates 3D LUTs for Grade-1 reference monitors using Blackmagic Design‘s popular color correction software, DaVinci Resolve, as a pattern generator.

Both software versions are available individually or bundled with the company’s light measurement devices – the SpectraCal C3 and SpectraCal C6 colorimeters.

When discussing the values of the products, SpectraCal’s Director of Marketing, Joshua Quain, explained, “Computer monitor calibration is important for anyone who uses a PC or Macintosh, while Grade-1 monitor calibration is absolutely essential if you’re editing color-critical content based on what you see on the screen. In either case, CalMAN is your guarantee that the screen is telling you the truth.”

Quain called out photographers, graphics artists, web designers, and other visually oriented professionals as those who need computer monitor calibration most urgently, while he recommended CalMAN for Resolve to colorists and editors in broadcast, production, or post-production.
