        it's hard to say - it depends how uniform the DTP94's are (or
whether Quato are creating calibrations for each unit of the DTP94
they ship), and how similar your particular display is to the display
the instrument calibration was created for. It could be quite good.

I'd be a little surprised if the calibration is in the device (DTP94),
although it's technically possible. If you can select the display type
in the software, then it's not in the device. Comparing two
readings of the same color using the different software can give you
an indication too.

The Argyll equivalent if it is not in the device is a CCMX file,
but you would need access to a spectrometer to create one
specifically for your display and instrument.
