Monitor Calibration

I discovered that my display color not quite properly.
Do you know any professional software able to calibrate the color and brightness of the display automatically?

in most cases, you want to calibrate the monitor AND the printer - see :  http://desktoppub.about.com/cs/colorcalibration/a/cal_printer.htm

You can do it by eye with a calibration dvd like Video Essentials or AVIA http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/volume_6_2/aviadvd.html, which are geared towards home theater displays.  You can also utilize a hardware colorimeter with software - the Spyder mentioned by MASQ is relatively inexpensive: http://www.amazon.com/ColorVision-S3TV100-Colorvision-SPYDER3-Colorimeter/dp/B001A34HXC

If your monitor is calibrated correctly, you should be able to see all shades of gray between black and white, and the colors will be the right temperature.  Try lowering the brightness to 50% to start with.
