The contrast pattern has a double luma ramp in the middle. It will ramp from 1 to 254 to 1.
Perfect. That pattern is like test-pattern porn! Deep ramps DEEP RAMPS!
Nothing beats it to spot clipping.
At anytime during the intro's, you can press the menu button and it will take you to the setup and evaluation menu.
As long as you can just hit menu, that's awesome. It's the restricted stuff that drives me nuts, especially after waiting 47 hours 13.39 minutes eleventy nine seconds wait wait no still longer now there's a different loading screen, for a BD player to boot up!
SMPTE re-designed the color bars a while back to "optimize" for modern displays. The color bar pattern on the cover of the case is the new HD color bars.
Oh gotcha! I'd have figured that one out once I get the disc, maybe I'll wait till I can just look at it before I continue to berate you with questions.
My wish list had Guy Kuo's animated color bars on it, I still find that the flashing boxes aids so much with precision.
The SD patterns are 601. When the player is set to output 1080p, the SD color bars and HD color bars should look the same, assuming the proper color conversion is done. In fact, the OPPO BD player will actually twist the 601 to 709 if you chose to output 4:2:2 or 4:4:4. At least I recall it doing that.
Excellent. That saves yet another disc change and waiting and waiting.
Are you back in Seattle now?
Yup, I never really left. Just some abroad stuff for a bit.
