Aah, that makes sense.

All video cards have that capability (a colour look up table or LUT), 
but I've never seen one that exposes it directly to the user before. You 
normally have to load data generated by a profiling tool instead.

Nope, I've never found channel adjustment useful. It's way too coarse 
and heavy handed, and it affects the whole brightness range without a 
way to affect (say) just colours with only a little red.
