ColourSpace is the de-facto standard for display calibration and colour management

Building on the unmatched capabilities of Light Illusion’s previous calibration system, ColourSpace is a ground-up, and totally new product development that far exceeds the capabilities of any previous or present alternative calibration system.

Unlike alternative calibration systems, ColourSpace licenses are valid for the life of the product (except for Rental licenses), with no annual maintenance or support fees, and includes free Software Updates for the purchased license options for the life of the product.


ColourSpace enables unprecedented and previously unachievable levels of accuracy and data reporting for display calibration, colour management, and colour workflows within the professional Film, Post-Production, & Broadcast industries, as well as for Display Manufacturers and Home Cinema enthusiasts.

ColourSpace is the new de-facto standard for advanced colour management, guaranteeing the highest possible level of display calibration and colour control, regardless of final application.

The most visually impressive capabilities within ColourSpace revolve around the unique graphics capabilities, combined with interactive data manipulation, with 3D CIE, XYZ, and normalised Colour Space Graphs, including Error Tangent lines and colour coded measure points.

New user defined patch colour sequences have been implemented for manual TV CMS adjustments, allowing any patch sequences to be imported for either manual or automated measurements.

New Remote Control integration allows for the development of third-party programs to both control ColourSpace, as well as receive data from ColourSpace, enabling additional colour management processes outside the direct capabilities of ColourSpace.

But, the biggest new capabilities ColourSpace enables is future flexibility.
The new code base has been developed to allow unrestricted future development of new calibration tools, graphical layouts, direct data interactivity, and more. ColourSpace really is a totally new approach to calibration, and calibration tools.


The calibration accuracy of ColourSpace is unmatched by any competitive calibration system, as it uses a totally unique colour engine, far in advance of any other available with any alternative calibration system.

3D Graphs

Unique 3D interactive graphs, enable accuracy assessment in ways previously impossible, with dE tangent lines defining individual point errors, while all graphs can effectively be infinitely zoomed and scrolled.


For quick and simple, but accurate assessment of any display, the measured colour points are uniquely displayed colour coded to define individual dE accuracy.


The core code of ColourSpace is lean and clean, resulting in unmatched speed across all aspects of operation, from graph interaction, to final display calibration, LUT generation, and information assessment.


Speed, combined with advanced 3D graphic charts, unique dE Tangent lines, and data point colour coding results in a level of user interactivity unmatched in any alternative calibration system.

Fully Featured

ColourSpace combines every conceivable feature for display assessment and calibration, colour management, workflows, LUT generation & manipulation, camera colour tools, ICC generation, VCGT management, and more…

What hardware is required to run ColourSpace?

There are actually not many required specifications for any laptop or PC for ColourSpace, so long as it will run full Windows 10 minimum, and uses OpenGL 3.2, or later, for the graphics.

The greater the CPU power, the faster the processing (LUT generation for example).
And it is best to have a reasonable amount of RAM, but there is no set minimum.
You may also want a way to get HDMI out, for direct profiling?

So realistically, just about any of today’s laptops should work, including things like a Microsoft Surface tablet.

ColourSpace Licensing?

ColourSpace licenses are for single PC use only, and can be deactivated and moved to a new PC 5 times by the user.

Licenses are not Floating licenses, and installation on servers for log-in access from multiple PCs, or the use of Roaming User Profiles, is not supported.

For multiple PC/User use, a multiple access license can be purchased at a discounted price.

For more information see the Licensing page.

Demo Video

The above video is a brief overview of the traditional 2D charts in ColourSpace, as well as new, unique, volumetric 3D graphs, all fully interactive, sizeable, and colour coded.

The colour coding helps quickly identify the accuracy of any given measured point.

  • Green ≤ 1dE
  • Orange > 1dE ≤ 2.3dE
  • Red > 2.3dE

The white Tangent lines are visual plots of any given point’s error.
The line starts at the actual volumetric location of the measured point, and ends where the point should be.
A very graphical way to show each and every error in any given display.

ColourSpace History

The background to ColourSpace is some 5 years old – yes, we really have been working on it that long! – with the equivalent of an unprecedented 15+ years man-hours development time dedicated to re-imagining the needs and requirements for next generation display calibration, colour management and colour workflows.

While there are similarities in some areas of the look and feel of ColourSpace when compared to the previous LightSpace CMS, there is no code similarity.

ColourSpace has been developed as a ground-up new system as the age of LightSpace was beginning to show. We need a new platform to take calibration onwards, with new capabilities suitable for now, as well as for years to come.

Further, improvements in development tools, as well as the new code-base, mean we may potentially be able to offer calibration capabilities that go beyond LightSpace’s Windows OS only operation. Within limitations, we should be able to offer a Mac version of ColourSpace. This will not be available initially, but we presently do not see any reason a Mac version should not become available at a later date.

LightSpace Upgrades

For any existing LightSpace user there is a very good Upgrade discount scheme available.

Discounts are defined on a one-on-one basis, and will vary, based on the age of the existing LightSpace license.

To discuss Upgrade discounts, please use the Quote form.

Alternate Calibration System Trade-Up

It is potentially possible to Trade-up from a purchased alternative calibration software system to any of the various ColourSpace versions.

However, the available Trade-up value depends on the status of the alternative calibration system, and the version of ColourSpace being traded-up to.

To discuss potential Trade-Up discounts, please use the Quote form.
