Whenever you decide to keep the measurements done in Display-Reader, you are presented with a dialog that contains options to be used for saving the data. The dialog appearance will vary depending on the measuring instrument, the available data and whether or not you have measured the White Point. Here is the dialog as it appears after making measurements with an i1Pro 2 and where we measured the display White Point. In the RAW data file, Y is not normalized and is saved in cd/m2 units. If you selected a Correction Matrix to process the measurements, the RAW file will also contain the XYZ values measured before applying the matrix. In the Processed data file, Y is normalized to 1 or 100, depending on the option you selected, and the data is relative to a Standard Illuminant. The Processed data file can be opened in PatchTool and compared to any other file. When a CIE 170 Standard Observer is selected in the Display-Reader tool window, you can also export the MacLeod-Boynton Chromaticity Coordinates by selecting the “xyY” data type in this dialog. You will get the MacLeod-Boynton lMB and sMB coordinates in addition to xyY computed for the selected Observer. Support of CIE 170 cone fundamentals colorimetry (CIE 2006 and CIE 2015) in PatchTool is described in Appendix H of the PatchTool Help manual.
