    I got a MacBook Pro 15˝ built in 2015 (MacBookPro11,4). In order to calibrate the built-in monitor, I have to identify it and figure out if it uses a white LED-backlit for instance. I found two Terminal codes.

    Code:
    ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6
    This code does not return anything.

    Code:
    ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6
    This code just returns

    Code:
    Color LCD
    which does not help. Does anybody know what to do? The computer runs macOS Sierra 10.12.3.

    Just choose LCD.

    What kind of software do you use?

    Well, my external LCD uses another technology (RG Phosphor i.e.). LCD is not specific enough. I work with the NEC SpectraView Profiler Software and the x-rite i1Display Pro colorimeter.
