This describes how to set up Maxwell to monitor the on-going history of the color on a monitor, or what we call "Tracking a display."

It is a straightforward, 3-step process:

1 Create a new device.
2 Create a new track.
3 Use the Color Shuttle to bond the track to your display.
Click on the Device button to list all of your devices

Create a new Device

  1. Log into Maxwell.
  2. Click on the "Device" button in the left column to bring up the list of all of your devices.
  3. Click on the + plus button on the bottom left corner of the Devices pane to make a new device.
  4. Fill out the Device Details pane with the information for your new display.

Device Model details

See "A" in illustration.

Whenever adding new models, pay close attention to how you name them, for these model names will be publicly viewable in 24 to 48 hours. During that time, you may make changes or edits, we will review the naming and ensure that the Maxwell list of models does not include multiple versions of the same device.

(For more detailed information on how to create a device, go to Create a New Device in Maxwell)

Create a new Track

How to create a new track
  1. Click on the "Tracks" link under Device Details. This opens up a Device Tracks pane.
  2. Click on the + plus button on the bottom left corner of the Device Tracks pane to make a new Track.
  3. Give the Track a descriptive name (Track Name).
  4. Start making a new reference set, and give the reference set a unique name.
  5. Leave the Color Aim at "Use First Measurements" This will enable the first profile you upload to be the measurement set that all following display calibrations will be compared to.
  6. Click on Metrics and add metrics to the reference.

(For more details on creating metrics, click Metrics in Maxwell)

Bond Track to Display

ColorShuttle Displaywatch - bonded
  1. Open ColorShuttle on your computer. ColorShuttle will automatically detect all displays that are connected to your computer.
  2. Click on the display you want to track.
  3. Click on the button to bond the display to the Maxwell track. Browse to the device and track you wish to bond to.
  4. Click "OK".

Set up Maxwell Notifiers to be informed when a new profile falls outside of tolerances for your display.
