Ambrosia Software has released a new free utility designed to correct an LCD or CRT displayis gamma curve, which in time gradually fade in brightness and contrast.
"This fading is inevitable, because the backlights for LCD screens eventually fade, and the photo-reactive substrate on CRT monitors eventually degrades," Ambrosia says. "ScreenCleaner Pro rectifies this situation by altering the gamma of your monitor to compensate for monitor degradation, so it will look as good as new. Donit toss out that old monitor, just run ScreenCleaner Pro on it, and watch your old monitor gain a new life."
ScreenCleaner Pro runs in the background and automatically analyzes your monitoris gamma curve and relative luminescence. After enough calibration data has been collected, ScreenCleaner Pro will adjust your monitor to like-new condition.
ScreenCleaner Pro is a free download and runs on Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
