New GUI Display setting in El Capitan (monitor calibration)
« on: February 03, 2016, 07:34:15 AM »
Hi all , So I made the leap and installed fresh load of  El Capiton (10.11.3)
on my backup MP5.1 (quad 3.2Ghz) on SSD , One thing I have to say it pick up the performance
big time, near speeds of my OC i7(4.7Ghz) hackintoss   :o

As I was going thought the setting to configure everything , I notice in the
Monitor Preferences , calibration there a pre-set for "Aces CG (Academy Color Encoding System)  :)
Display P3, Rec. ITU-R BT.2020-1 , Rec. ITU-R BT.709-5 , ROMM RGB: ISO 22028-2:2013 , SMPTE RP 431-2-2007 DCI (P3)
SEE image at the bottom of the post to get a sense of the new color display

Good read , highly recommend !

Now this where it gets very Interesting , I have a  Asus LED (pro art) PA23Q 23" DP, HDMI , Etc....
Which claims to be 100% of sRGB and have a "delta e" of less then 5 and a 10bit Lut to 8bit RGB etc...
Why would any one care about it  ::) well it seems that my Monitor has a factory profile for "ACES" in El Capiton
Or it covers the specification for the display profile (I'm connected on the DP (display port) for a GTX570 2.5GB ram) 
maybe that's why there now optional 10bit video now with
El Capiton , but it seems to be on the 4K & 5K retina displays , Dell 10bit monitor at this point

Dell U2711 10bit is the Monitor that used with this mac
