Dynamic Range Test (Banding)
A properly configured monitor should display the widest possible range of colors.
In this case you might see smooth color gradient which consists of a color stripes of the same color temperature.
And each adjacent stripes should have similar color increment from one to another.
In case of misconfigured or malfunction monitor you may see different color temperature along the neutral gradient and different color steps.
Example of color bandings on neutral gradient
So, there are sample neutral and color gradients below.
To test your monitor just click on selected gradient and look carefully on colors in full-screen mode.
Try to notice:
- Colors are in balance on neutral gradient and have similar color temperature.
- Each adjacent stripes should have similar color increment from one to another.
