How accurate is the ColorMunki Display? I bought this meter a week ago (brand new) and have been using it with HCFR v.126.96.36.199 to calibrate my DLP projector. For some reason I think that this colorimeter or at least mine may be providing higher readings for the blue primary, green and red seem to be on par. The reason I think this is becuase of all the professional reviews I have read for my projector (Optoma HD8200) the default warm color temperature setting for cinema or reference mode is +/- 7500K and I obtain consistent readings of upwards 7900K-8000K. On the RGB levels graph, the red, green and blue track linear per the professional reviews; (plus blue, green close to 6500K and minus red).
The picture looks much better after I calibrated to 6500K, but I keeping thinking in the back of my head; is the meter off??? I realize that these lower cost meters have limitations and cannot compare to the higher end professional equipment; but a 400K to 500K color temp. error seems substantial.
In HCFR I select my meter ColorMunki Display, display type refresh (single chip DLP), reading type non-contact, Spectral Sample Projector. Advanced menu, Preferences, General uncheck the use measured colors box. References tab select HDTV - REC 709 as the standard, Advanced tab I checked the Do not use luminance in delta E formula. From there I just followed the CurtPalme GREYSCALE & COLOUR CALIBRATION FOR DUMMIES.
PS I don't think that the ColorMunki Display requires calibration before taking any measurements.
