On the Panasonic VT50, I've found that the 5% APL with 18% surround to work best. With the VT50, using a 5% window pattern at 10% level, the pattern is presented lighter probably having something to do with how the panel' power supply works. That causes corrections to be made to lower it. Switch to a 5% APL pattern and you see a significant difference. It translates into content by either crushing or not crushing darker shades before going into black. Some calibrators will still use a windows pattern yet lower the gamma for 10%.
My disc will work with any software that utilizes a round nearest method and/or software that assumes integer percentages. ChromaPure falls into this category and HCFR can be setup for compatibly. However, I am not sure if CalMAN's engine is adjustable to match my disc's RGB triplet rounding method.
That is for patterns at full saturation and CalMAN uses the same rounding assumption. For less then full saturation (saturation sweeps and the ColorChecker) the patterns match what ChromaPure is using.

I've been using a 7.5% pattern as the resulting gamma of 2.3 is almost identical to the native gamma.
With that said, I'm not certain that there isn't a better pattern. I've heard 5% with a 25% surround but that seemed a bit extreme.
Jim, do you see any difference at all between using 6.5 and 7.5% windows?
Also, what Cell Light setting do you use on the Samsung?
I'm using a signal generator and used the 7.5% since it was one of the standard sizes.
I wouldn't expect to see any difference between 6.5 and 7.5%.
Sorry, I currently offer no package deal options. However, I might consider an iso and mp4/mkv combo in the future. Yes, the H.264/MPEG-4/AVC is the mp4 file version(no chapters). The newest addition are mkv files with chapter navigation.
