Questions about this item:

Jerry C  What's the difference between the BK-SV and the BK? I'm not clear as to what SpectraViewII is. Hardware? Software? Both? I have a ColorMunki Photo already. Would I need different softward/hardware to optimize this display?
DAVID R  SV model includes hardware and software for the spectra view calibration. Your device should be fine; no need for the SV.
