I was just wondering does anyone know where I can find this test pattern. I know a signal generator will produce this, but can I find this on a calibration disc?

Thanks
LL

Yes. Which disc format do you want?

Blu-ray preferably, it just needs to be 1920 x 1080. I'm trying to get my focus dialed in and the grid pattern on my projector is really hard to look at for a long period of time.

Not the exact one but a great site. Also there are very good patterns on the AVS S&M, and DVE discs... have you tried those?

Also Calman has a good pattern generator on their download page.

I use the AVS 709 disc for focus. In the misc patterns under resolution the second pattern (single pixel cross I think) works great for very fine focus.

I haven't seen that old pattern or an 'Indian Head' HD version of it in 1080p. There are similar patterns available from the following:

'Digital Video Essentials: HD Basics' Blu-ray Disc- see: "SMPTE RP-133 Resolution Chart" in the "Advanced Video Patterns" section (also available on 'DVE Professional' WMV HD).

'DisplayMate for Windows' PC Program- see: "Master Test Pattern" in the index.

As mentioned, there are alternate patterns specifically designed for focus and/or resolution tests in other HD test programs. They may be easier to your eyes.

I'm not sure how much resolution you need, but the indian head on myTvTestDisc might work for you. You can download it off their .com web site.
