CMS Calibration Notes

The 2030 has a full CMS and by using it, all of the primaries and secondaries could be improved.  By default, blue was oversaturated and magenta was too blue.  Using the CMS, blue and magenta were improved and overall, skin tones came out really well.  Luminance errors for primaries and hue errors for secondaries were almost non-existent.  Even without the CMS, turning color down a bit will take out some of the excess red in skin tones, which don’t look bad in any mode by default.
