    The Adobe Gamma program for calibrating monitors used with Photoshop
    asks for a phosphor type setting. The options are: EBU/ITU or HDTV
    (CCIR 709) or NTSC (1953) or P22 EBU or SMPTE-C (CCIR 601-1) or
    Trinitron or Custom. I've checked the monitor's manual (NEC MultiSync
    FE 950+) and the manufacture's Web site for phosphor information. The
    only information states "medium short phosphor."

    Any suggestion as to what phosphor setting should be used when
    calibrating this monitor?

    I've heard "Trinitron" is the best guess for most monitors, if nothing
    different is specified in your monitor's manual.

    Maybe someone from Adobe can comment more authoritatively on this, but try
    Trinitron, you can always re-run it later if need be.

  4. Good Advice!
    I have a 19" Princeton Monitor and couldn't find Phosphor data in any of
    their literature or on their website.
    I E-mailed them a request for the info and told them I needed it to
    calibrate my monitor with Adobe Gamma.
    They responded in 2-3 days with everything I needed.
