Calman & C6 capable of laser/LED based calibration?

I have a Panasonic PT-RZ370U in my possession and would like to see what I can get out of it. Its a single chip DLP with LED/Laser-combined (R, B: LED; G: Laser diode) light engine.

This is for a commercial application with strictly PC/MAC sources for power point presentations.
If so what would the recommended table, color space and gamma targets?

BTW this projector looks remarkably good. Black floor is probable too high for dedicated HT use but a media room with some ambient light it would be perfect.
I'll post my measurements and opinions post calibration.

Thanks in advance for the guidance.

RGB LED is going to be your best bet.

You'd probably need to profile against a spectro to get the last little bit of accuracy.

Any recommendations on a target color space and gamma?
Usually I would use sRGB for pc/mac.

sRGB and Rec.709 are virtually interchangeable and what nearly all content is mastered for.

sRGB gamma is 2.2?

no sRGB has it's own gamma that is very similar to BT.1886, but with a baked in tail instead of a measured offset.

Measuring black wasn't very feasible in 1996 when they established the standard.
