One very encouraging thing I found. Now with the new test patterns, I was finally able to do a real contrast measurement. And it ends up, that I was already getting the really high contrast ratios of 3,600:1 and so that we've seen from other pro calibrations. The thing was, that the other calibrations all state the the "ansi" contrast ratios. And I was only measuring "on/off" contrast. "Ansi" contrast, is by nature much higher than "on/off" contrast, by about 500:1 difference. So after doing the proper measurements. I got a "on/off" ratio of about 3,100:1 that's what I had previously, and now I got an "ansi" contrast ratio of almost 3,600:1. So there you have it.
The saturations for all the colors look pretty nice after taking the measurements. The only one that's slightly off, is red at 50% with a dE of 7, but at 7 it's pretty much hardly considered to be off.
That's great, the contrast numbers match up almost identically with UMR when he did one calibration.
BTW are the user WB still the same as you had them (I don't see them in the chart file)
I always though the ANSI was always lower than the on/off contrast.
Like Home theater magazine.com has numbers like these:
Sony BRAVIA KDS-50A3000 SXRD
ANSI - 275:1, On/Off - 3,971:1
ANSI - 1,708:1, On/Off - 3,751:1
ANSI - 1,413:1, On/Off - 2,039:1
Pioneer Elite KURO PRO-110FD
ANSI - 3,239:1, On/Off - 4,020:1
The ANSI is always lower.
