Is there any software for calibrating the display (colors, brightness, contrast, tint, etc)?

 

Trying to get the best out of my old Teknika monitor with separate Chroma/Luma inputs.

 

Thanks!

TVTEST, which was used by communications companies, it is test patterns and sounds. It assumes a properly adjusted Atari to generate the display.

 

If you have a known calibrated monitor, you can use this to adjust the Atari.

Get a Spears & Munsil dvd or the free AVCHD from https://www.avsforum...alibration.html

and just set up the basics the best you can. There is no use using patterns from our old 8 bit computers, the color reproduction is just way off and won't resemble any current standard.

 

Even better is getting a cheap meter like an xrite i1pro and do an actual calibration, but only if the monitor has separate controls for rgb bias/gain etc. otherwise just stick to the basic color, hue, brightness etc.
