I recently bought an Eizo S2243W, which boasts a wide gamut panel that displays 95% of AdobeRGB.
The thing is that, while color aware applications are fine, most applications (including Windows 7 itself) are displaying colors way too saturated. I understand why that is happening, the display simply doesn't know how the signal that's coming in is rated color wise and it just takes a full bright red (which may be intended as 100% in sRGB) as 95% in AdobeRGB, which is its native range.
Now my question is: is there a way to reduce gamut space to sRGB (wasn't that something like 72% of AdobeRGB?) so that my monitor produces colors like a 'normal' monitor?
I have been fiddling with the monitor controls but turning down the saturation and/or changing the gain just doesn't cut it. While the colors look less saturated over all, there are still some excessive colors and it just doesn't look natural over all.
I was thinking that perhaps a specific color profile that maps from would do the trick?
EDIT: I figure that almost everyone with a wide gamut display (with so many IPS panels on the market nowadays that's no rarity anymore) would suffer from this problem.
