Title: Systems and methods for display calibration

Abstract: Methods and data processing systems are disclosed for automatically calibrating display devices. In one embodiment, a data processing system includes a display device having a built-in image capturing device and a mirror system with at least one mirror that is operatively coupled to the image capturing device. The mirror system reflects one or more reference images in a first region of the display device and one or more references images in a second region of the display device to the image capturing device. The references images captured by the image capturing device allow a calibration of colors output from the display device. A reference image in the first region may be compared to different references images in the second region until a match is obtained. In another embodiment, an adjustable mirror system includes at least one adjustable mirror to allow adjustment of the mirror angle for the display calibration.
