Click on this link below to see for yourself how well using the BT 1886 2.4 formula can work. Once the file downloads open with your browser (internet explorer, Google, ect.)
btw, I understand why some may not appreciate what the BT 1886 can really do. I used to think the same way as some of you until I learned how to make a really good calibration using BT 1886.
This profile/calibration was done using ARGYIICMS (Beta 1.7)
One can see that with a 3d LUT on the eeColor would make the display fantastic! But how was your comparison of the display without the 3d LUT?[/QUOTE]
If you want to compare a manual normal 10PT grayscale, Gamma, RGB balance and CMS of mine, click on the last link in my sig. However that report is a typical non- comprehensive report that you may get from a Pro calibrator. If I still had the VT50 I did that calibration on and ran a much larger comprehensive report on it, the calibration would not look nearly as good as the report I have a link to in my sig.
Matter of fact, just because you do a 3DLUT calibration on a VT60 probably still will have noticeable color errors. I learned a lot about how to make a good 3DLUT using LightSpace and eecolor box (its a good and easy 3DLUT software, with great support from Steve) However I have moved on for now to ArgyIICMS along with the rest of the software that is need, manly to see how well it worked because it is a free software.
It has taken me about 3 weeks to get it working well and building my own custom patch sets, the end results you see in the report I link too in the above post. That report I linked to, the 3DLUT is made using a custom made 9405 color points and of course with GWGill (ArgyIICMS developer) gift to us all. Also a gift to us all from fhoech (dispcalGUI developer) and madshi (madVR developer).

... In case you're wondering, the original plan was to use it for daytime viewing and a PJ for nighttime ... and now it's 10000 hours later. ... Plans ...
PS: BT1886 2.2 ... what?
BT1886 2.2 is just as it reads. Just like power 2.2 or 2.4, the difference is in the gamma curve of BT 1886 as were power 2.2 or 2.4 is flat.
I don't use a projector so take what I say with a grain of salt. If you want to know more post that question in the ArgyII/madVR thread. Also if you want to get into HTPC and therefore bypass the use and expense of the eecolor box post and start reading in that thread.
