The paper substantiates the importance of appropriate color reproduction when designing architectural and designer objects in computer systems. Most studies of color in architecture and design are related to its characteristics, lighting conditions, the influence of the source, environment, visual perception, etc., rather than the accuracy of its reproduction. The color selected by the designer and the customer from the standard palettes may be distorted when displayed on a monitor in the software. Color deviations from the palette samples can be  significant and visually noticeable on the monitor, which is undesirable.

The article compares two monitors in terms of color reproduction quality. For this purpose, was described software and tool methods for configuring monitors. The monitors were calibrated and profiled using an instrumental method using a spectrophotometer. The obtained profiles were analyzed in comparison with sRGB and the color differences of the test scale fields were analyzed by color difference ∆E 2000. The suitability of each monitor for project visualization was determined based on monitor calibration and profiling results. The authors compared the coverage of sRGB, Adobe RGB, and ProPhoto RGB and gave practical recommendations for choosing a working profile when working and controlling color by monitor. The algorithms for calculating and using unreproducible colors were analyzed when switching from a larger color gamut to a smaller one. The article also includes practical recommendations for preparing the monitor for working with color.

Therefore, it is possible to improve the color reproduction accuracy and get the color close to standard palettes on the monitor by calibrating and profiling it. The process of setting up a monitor is especially relevant in the case of preparing projects in digital form with their visualization in software.
