what is the proper way to calibrate 4k monitor in X1E? role of display optimizer?

2019-09-27, 1:43 AM

I just got a X1E with the 4k screen, when setting it up, I noticed the display optimizer which I presume switches from adobeRGB (Photo pro) to DCIP3 or Rec709 for movie pro? and full native coverage under "native". I noticed the *.icm files in the proper Windows directory


I happen to own both a X1i and a Spyder5 sensors, two basic questions 1? can I fine tune this profiles with my X1i Pro or Spyder5 sensors? 2) can I simply add a "user-defined" profile using the software of either sensor?? 


btw, it would have been helpful if the display optimizer had any help/documentation.

Hi there, jdrodrig! 


Welcome to the Lenovo forum discussion! 


Just to confirm, what's the exact Gen of the Lenovo X1 Extreme? For the screen display calibration, the default application that you can use is the Color Calibration that came with the Windows OS. You can still try using the Spyder5 Sensors to tune up the screen of the Lenovo X1 Extreme, however, we cannot guarantee if it will work.
