Steve,

using the current versions of Calman you can re-target an existing calibration to be written to a new LUT slot. The instructions are on their website. At that time, you can also change the Gamma target.

Had a quick look and the full reset within CalMAN just resets the input/output and currently selected 3D LUT.

Wo do however have a cmd shell utility I wrote when we sold ColorBoxes that will reset all LUT's. Copy LUT's from slot to slot. Save LUTs and load LUTs. Load custom OSD images etc...

I will find a copy of the utility and post a link into this thread. The utility will not be officially supported by SpectraCal but worked well when we used it


I found a copy of the ColorBox utility. I need to do a bit of testing but will post it tomorrow along with some use examples.
Hello Derek,

Was the ColorBox utility link ever posted? I did not see where it was. Did you decide not to post the utility. I would be very interested in this but if you decided not to post it I can certainly understand.

EDIT: Maybe this utility was incorporated into one of the updates of CalMAN. After reading about retargeting in the document provided above, maybe that is what I am looking for. Sounds like an easy enough process.

Thank you for all of your help on this and other threads. This neophyte very much appreciates it.

Best Regards,

Steve

Okay,
latest run 3600 panels, on a tripod using black felt to make a lens hood, 2 1/2 hours.
Very nice results with 0.8 dE Colors. 11% size, 18% average user ABL patterns.
Still see occasional minor banding, but this has also been significantly reduced by using the 30 bit dithered output of the OPPO Blu-ray player.
Calman 5.6.1 beta also offered some improvement.

I was able to re-target this to BT.1886 gamma, which looks great. Skin tones are dead on.

CalMAN 5.6.1 Open Beta - Build: 2200 Released @ 19 November 2015

Release Notes

Resolved an issue with the CR-100 and CR-250 meters that could give read errors near black.

Resolved an issue that could cause datagrids to display data in the wrong columns.

Resolved an issue creating 3D LUT files for TVLogic displays using the SpectraCal CalMAN Cube Generator. This issue did not exist when connecting directly to a TVLogic as a display.

CalMAN now requires madVR version 0.89.17 or higher.

Tweaked 3D LUT algorithms to help reduce possible banding.

Added new 1D LUT formats for the SpectraCal Cube Generator. New formats are .txt (Black magic) and .cube (AJA).

Firmware version 2.3 for the AJA LUT box now allows you to select if the deice is set to Full or SMPTE levels. This option is in the AJA Mini Config utility on the LUT page.

On the AutoCal Setup dialog when creating a cube, there are now 2 options for the AJA – LUT box format for Output Cube Size (right under the File Format drop down). You want to select 17 Points 16-235 if you are running older firmware or if you have selected SMPTE in the AJA utility. You want to select 17 Points if you are running the new firmware and you have set the AJA LUT box to Full in its utility. The setting in the AJA LUT box must be made before running the AutoCube calibration.

The banding that I have been getting in the blue and magenta saturation sweeps
has been eliminated when I profile using a YCC video chain. Interestingly there is
still some minor banding in magenta (not blue) when I use an RGB chain.

Another thing I noticed was that the CR-100 no longer syncs properly in this
build, I have to enter the frequency manually.

Hi, guys.
I am sorry if this has been answered before but I can´t search the topic right now (cell phone). I have a few questions about the eeColor 3D LUT box:
1. Can I used to correct the bad CMS on my JVC RS4810?
2. Does it work with Calman Control?
3. If yes for the first two qustions, is there a step by step guide on how to achive itens 1 and 2?

Thanks for any help.

Sorry for bad english...

Hi, about your questions.

1) You will have to find your projector mode which has the largest gamut coverage (native) and you will use this and let CalMAN/eeColor calibrate your selected colorpoints you want.

2) You will need to upgrade your license level to CalMAN Enthousiast to be able to perform 3D LUT Calibration.

3) CalMAN Enthousiast has a workflow called Color Cube 3D LUT for this job, and it's layout pages has the required steps. The Options you will have about CalMAN's Cube Generator are described to this guide: http://www.spectracal.com/Documents/...20Overview.pdf

* You will need pattern generator to display the required color patches that CalMAN will require, you can use the CalMAN's Internal Software Pattern Generator.

There 2 Options:

Options 1) Use your PC/Notebook HDMI (as extended desktop) and CalMAN's Internal Pattern Generator will generate the required patterns. This requires some testing (with measurements and levels checking via Brightness/Contrast Patterns) to see if your PC/Notebook Output is matching your blu-ray output when you will generate the same patterns from a calibration disk.

Solution 2) Get Amazon Fire USB Stick that CalMAN connects wireless and generates the required patterns for 3D LUT. SpectraCAL says this solution has been verified that generates accurate patterns.

Wow. This is fantastic. I can sell my Lumagen Mini 3D as all I was using it for was a pattern generator/LUT box. Now that I have an eeColor box I was just using it as a pattern generator. Now I can just get rid of it.

Is the wireless connection to the Fire Stick an option on the pull-down menu just like the Lumagen was? Is it that simple?

I got it all set up. Everything's talking and passing signal. The problem is the eeColor box shows "0" and that's it. It does not respond to the remote at all. I bought this a while ago (when the price fell to $499 but before the $299 price) but this is the first time I've tried it. A new JVC RS500 got me to swap out my Lumagen for the eeColor.

Is this an issue that's been discussed before? I'm not sure how to search for this "0" issue.

first thing: check battery. this is the most common reason.

second: the ee needs an active signal fed to the box in order for the remote to work. if u do not feed an active signal to the box, the remote won't do anything.

Yes, thank you.

The battery reads 3.3 volts and the light by the number flashes, indicating a signal is flowing through the box. And the signal that comes through looks fine.

I'm thinking I have a bad remote. I'll test with my camera.

EDIT: The remote emits IR. I assume if it's emitting something it's correct. So the eeColor must not be seeing it. Crumb. I'll have to see what the warranty is.

(although possible) I doubt it is the remote.

replace the battery. send a supported, active signal to the box.

if it is still not responsive, but you know the remote battery is good, hook the box up via USB to computer and open Truvue app and upload 6 LUTS (can be all Unity, doesn't matter), basically overwriting the existing LUTs...

it could be u have a corrupt LUT sitting in a slot...

Hi, get a new battery 3V Li-ion Battery (CR-2025) for eeColors's Remote and check when you will place to have the correct polarity side inside to the remote.

When the battery has low power, it will not transmit commands to the device, while it will show 3.3V with a multimeter, it will not work.

eeColor's LED indicator which is located in the eeColor's faceplate will be light-on when there is an active connection only.

So if the blu-ray or the TV is closed, the remote will not work and OSD screen that can appear that the bottom right when you will press a button of the remote will be not displayed. The LED indicator will be disabled also.

When eeColor will detect active connection, then the LED indicator with light up (and display the active memory table number) and you will be able to use the remote also to swap memories.


If you like to turn on/off that screen you can press the yellow button from the remote.

You can look about this (or get more details) by looking the manual: http://www.displaycalibrations.com/files/eeColor_3D_LUT_Box_User_Guide.pdf

The remote when you press a button, it flashes Infrared light from it's LED. We can't see with our eyes that but smartphone's cameras are seeing it. Apple has added a Infrared Light Filter to it's camera so it will be not possible to see any Infrared light by looking thru iPhone camera.


If you see the LED from inside the camera flashing (but not bright enough), means that the remote is ok, but the battery is low.

As Mike says, load the UNITY LUT's to all slots, to reset the factory pre-loaded 1D/3D LUT tables using eeColor Application.

Here you can see where you have to click upload Unity LUTs to eeColor (with UNITY OSD labels to all memories):



You can download the TruVue Application Software Version 2 from here: http://www.displaycalibrations.com/f..._Version_2.zip

Here you can download the latest FTDI VCP CDM communication drivers for your eeColor: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

Use a USB 2.0 Port of your system and a USB 2.0 B-Bus (the same Printers or i1PRO is using for example) to connect eeColor with your PC.

If your display calibrates better with YCbCr than with a RGB signal, then as far as I can tell the mobile forge thing doesn't really work. The chromecast device which does output YCbCr isn't accurate for color gamut, the Amazon Fire Stick which is accurate appear to be accurate for RGB but many displays don't do that good a job converting RGB to YCbCr (comparing to my Videoforge HDMI). I've asked the question is there any mobileforge device that's accurate for both grayscale and color gamut that outputs YCbCr and get no response. I too thought I could sell off my my Videoforge HDMI while there is still a market for it and just go with mobile forge. What actually happened is that I bought both a Chromecast stick and a Amazon Fire Stick that don't really work for one reason or another. Actually, the Fire Stick works but unless your device works well with an RGB signal then the conversion renders it less accurate than you'd want.

I think the most likely problem is that you have already connected with Calman and that locks the eecolor to whatever memory channel it was on. So disconnect from Calman from within "Direct Display Control" and be sure that the eecolor has both input and output HDMI cables connected to devices that are turned on and working... avoiding receivers, switchers and anything else that may interfere with HDMI handshakes/signals.

it could be u have a corrupt LUT sitting in a slot...

Here you can see where you have to click upload Unity LUTs to eeColor (with UNITY OSD labels to all memories):

...

You can download the TruVue Application Software Version 2 from here: http://www.displaycalibrations.com/f..._Version_2.zip

Here you can download the latest FTDI VCP CDM communication drivers for your eeColor: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

Use a USB 2.0 Port of your system and a USB 2.0 B-Bus (the same Printers or i1PRO is using for example) to connect eeColor with your PC.

Thank you all. It's a real "pile-on" of help. AVS is really great.

Jim, good caution. I'm going to calibrate with one pattern source (probably the MobileForge) and then verify gamma, saturation ramps and color checker with both. That way I can compare and see if the test patches from MobileForge vs. Lumagen make a difference. It will be interesting!

Just received my eeColor 3D LUT Box

Hi All,
I don't post often, but wanted to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this thread and learning from some obviously skilled and knowledgeable display calibrators. After some research, I decided to pull the trigger and purchase a Calman 5 Enthusiast license with a new C6 meter about a month ago (yes I'm a newbie). For my pattern generator, I went with the Mobile Forge (Fire TV) cheap solution. I own an eight year old PDP-50580HD KURO plasma, a Pioneer SC-68 receiver and Pioneer BDP-62FD Blu-ray. This TV has been a great media room TV. Unfortunately, the CMS, if you can call it that, is very limited and, according to Calman, it is all over the map in terms of gray scale and color. Doing a lot of reading, naturally, the 3D LUT was especially interesting as a means for upgrading the display's color, and the eeColor box, as an external CMS, is priced easy enough to take a chance on it. So, I purchased the box, which just arrived this afternoon. My first impressions are this device feels and looks like a quality-made product. A future wireless capability would be a great upgrade, but I digress. After reading this entire forum from end to end, I'm confident it can perform its intended function as a 3D LUT holder in my video chain. Looking forward to the experience and the practice using Calman to create the LUT and the display calibration experience in general. Thanks to all of you who have posted detailed information and instructions on how to incorporate this device into the home video chain and how to use Calman to create the 3D LUT.

Regards,
Mike
