Color Management: Some basic Monitor Calibrations
One of the great strengths of Capture One is its ability to use the ICC and ICM color management standards.  Every device renders colors differently and it is up to the computer's color management system to interpret the color capability of every device in the imaging and printing chain to help insure that the color you see on your monitor and eventually in printed output is as close as possible to the original scene. When devices such as cameras, monitors, and printers subscribe to these open standards then we have the possibility for automatic color matching without wasting needless time and material as is inevitable with trial and error testing.  By defining an ICC or ICM monitor profile, this allows the color management system on your computer to make the calculations necessary to accurately display the images and then to accurately display or print on other devices that are also color managed.    A basic monitor calibration can be set up within the PC or MAC systems.   Macintosh computers use a system level utility and PC computers can use the Adobe Gamma Control Panel that ships with Adobe Photoshop or a utility which may have been provided with your monitor.  Here is how to access these utilities; On the PC, if you have Adobe Photoshop, then use the Adobe Gamma Control Panel.  With Windows XP, the control panel is found at  C: \Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Calibration\Adobe Gamma.cpl.  If your monitor manufacturer provides their own calibration utility, check their documentation for calibration instructions.    CMS Guide
