with the gradation. Thank you for your feedback!
Here's an example:
If the white level of the TV is set to 100 nit, a 2.4 gamma would require 0.0015 nit at 1% grey, 0.0084 nit at 2% grey, 0.022 nit at 3% grey, etc. to show the gradation coming out of black (0.000 nit).
If the TV has a native contrast ratio of 10,000:1, the darkest black it can display without resorting to local dimming is 0.01 nit (100/10,000), meaning that it will not be able to display anything at 2% and below, resulting in a black crush.
You will avoid this issue if you calibrate with FALD off. Alternatively, you can "override" the black level in the calibration software, so that the target levels at 0, 1, 2, 3% grey will be 0.01, 0.023, 0.043, 0.086 instead, above the TV's black floor.
