Switch to DCI gives me greenish white

PostMon Jul 26, 2021 7:52 pm

Hi,
I just buy a new DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K to work on P3 DCI.
DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K => HDMI => Eizo CG247X

Screen is self-calibrated P3 DCI.
New color managed Wide Gamut is in use.

If I switch CG247X profile to REC709
=> white becomes white (with resolve output color space REC709 or P3 DCI)

If I switch CG247X profile to P3 DCI
=> white becomes greenish white (with resolve output color space REC709 or P3 DCI)

I'm lost... something is not working here, but what ? :(

I don't think I'd trust doing a theatrical grade on an LCD display, if that's what you're trying to do. I don't think there's a way to do it right without actually using a DCI projector.

It is true that the 6300° color temperature of DCI P3 is slightly more greenish than normal 6500° Rec709:

You're right,
I was thinking DCI to be 65 by default, but after check, it is clearly not the case.
Thanks
