If you use one of the below listed ColorEdge monitors, you may choose to run what is called an Assisted Software Calibration. This is cross between running a full hardware calibration (the monitor is adjusted), and running a full software calibration (the computer video card signal is adjusted).
An assisted software calibration does a bit of both.
Older ColorEdge models can only be calibrated with ColorNavigator 6 (list below).
ColorNavigator 6 does not work with Mac OS Catalina 10.15 - as Apple have made it 64-bit compatible only.

"Assisted" Software Calibration - general advice
Invest in a Datacolor Spyder Pro, Spyder Elite, or XRite i1 Display Pro monitor calibration kit. Please ensure that the kit you select has an "RGB adjustment" option* in the calibration software.
* Manually adjusting the RGB levels and the brightness of the monitor will mean the software doesn't have to apply so many changes. The result - you won't lose as many tones. What does this mean for you? A cleaner and more detailed view into your image file. Highlight and shadow definition. Visible detail in the more saturated tones in your image (no blobby-ness).
You must 'tell' your adjustment software that your monitor is equipped with RGB adjustment control.
This is usually hidden away in the preferences of the software. Check with your reseller if you can not find this setting.
Often when this RGB adjustment feature is selected, a warning will appear. Many lower-end monitors have this RGB adjustment feature, but it is by no means accurate. All Eizo monitors have what's called a linear RGB adjustment feature (ie, very accurate). So you may dismiss the warning.
Here's what to do on the monitor side
Please take note of the below image before reading through the instructions
Reset the monitor's colour
Toggle the MODE button to CUSTOM or USER (depending on model)
The software will instruct you to adjust the brightness, until you hit the brightness target
The software will instruct you to adjust RGB levels until you hit the colour temperature target
