Got a dumb question to ask:
...isn't the whole idea of buying very costly video devices, such as the KUROs indeed are, to display video images as accurately as possible given the set standards that exists for both SD and HD reproduction?
I mean, other than the game (of which personally I could care less since I don't play video games) and PC modes, all other modes should accurately conform (in relative terms since absolute perfection doesn't exist in the universe) to known standards (i.e., correct color temperature, correct gamma, etc., etc., etc.), so am wondering what all the fuzz is about playing around with all sort of calibration settings for this or that video mode...different settings for games, sports, movies...ad nauseum.
I purchased the Elite Pro-151FD with the expectation of acquiring a display device capable of providing me with relatively high reproduction accuracy of films (primarily; that's why we rely on real film to judge and directly compare video transfers at all possible, although it has become increasingly more difficult to do so) on video from both SD and HD sources (HD-DVD, Blu Ray, S-VHS, DVD, OTA and satellite transmissions [am interested in Verizon's FIOS "service," but their So. Cal. HD program line up truly sucks at this time], laserdisc and, yes, even the occasional playback of VHS and Super-Beta tapes).
This means to me that the set should be calibrated to provide those exact set standards--or as close as possible given the variances that are bound to exist from one unit to another--in order to provide the reproduction accuracy am chasing after.
Am I totally alone in the pursuit of video reproduction accuracy, or is it an exercise in sheer futility?...
