In browsing through my Zephyr's monitor (model MSC-200565, HD 7" 800 nits) manuals, I've come across a monitor setting I haven't seen before on other monitors: Colour Temperature.
The setting is explained in two sections:
ColourMatch Conversion with Colour Temperature Adjustment
Emulation of SMPTE-C/EBU colour space allows the MSC-200565 to replace any broadcast CRT monitor. Presets include D55, D65 and D93. Bias and Gain adjustment for each colour enables precise colour matching and white balance.
Manual, page 4
Use this setting to choose one of the colour temperature presets:
- D55 (5500K)
- D65 (6500K)
- D93 (9300K)
- Linear (no correction)
- USER (adjustable Colour Bias and Gain)
Manual, page 10
Now, my question... in what situations would I be using this setting? Am I setting it to match the ambient light? If so, when am I supposed to be in 9300K light?
