Blake has always been aware of the importance of monitor calibration. "Monitor calibration is vital for my work and X-Rite products are fantastic" says Blake. Blake has said that monitor calibration is and always will be vital for the industry as you have to know that what you see on the monitor is what you're getting. Blake went on to say, "I can tell if a monitor is not calibrated correctly just by looking at the image and comparing it with the waveform monitor".
