BT1886 is a fairly new feature in LS right? So yes based on that BT1886 is unlikely.
Ted you know of the cube solutions available for the pro marked, how many other have BT1886 as a gamma option?
The defacto applications that post-production studios are using all these years for large 3D LUT Profilings are:
BaseLight TrueLight (September 2003)
Rising Sun Research CineSpace (around 2002) changed to CineTal CineSpace (August 2008) - > later became THX CineSpace CineCube (April 2012) were it was locked to REC.709 only (with reduced price).
Light Illusion LightSpace CMS (January 2009) (The Chief Color Scientist of LightSpace was responsible for the colour science in TrueLight)
CalMAN Studio where it was entered lately to pro industry (July 2012).
During my latest access of CineSpace's Private Secured FTP, they didn't had support for BT1886, just at August 2013 they added the Target Profiling File for REC.709 2.4 Power Gamma, before August it were available only REC709 2.2
THX CineSpace/CineCube has 2 worklows: ITU-R_709_g2.2 + ITU-R_709_g2.4, no BT1886...
It was not possible to enter custom gamma value with CineSpace.
Also THX CineSpace/CineCube project has now discontinued...
Their site are offline also...
BaseLight TruLight has BT1886 as an option but I don't see any option for Black Offset, I can't test a evaluation to tell you this 100% because I don't have a Mac or a Truelight Projector / Monitor Probe...
TruLight works only with their probe, no other probes are supported.
But meter correction matrix is available.
Since the Post Production Industry don't widely using BT1886, you can calibrate to any gamma target you want, just note that REC.709 2.2 Power Gamma is the most common gamma used for the movies that have been mastered since now...
If you take 3 different displays, lets say, one plasma, one LED-backlit LCD and one CCFL-LCD backlighting and you calibrate them using the same gamma target value, if you display the same material after that the same time from that 3 panels, it will be different at shadow detai/mid-tones etc. etc.. to your eyes....
An idea of having 2-3 different memories to your LUT Box of to your internal display memories and swap them to find which one that it gives you the best performace of your display to each specific movie using your eyes is the best solution right now.
We can't do anything about it, and we don't know if the monitors that are calibrated at studios are calibrated so tight to the specs..... or how frequently they are calibrated... a mystery.....
