The Curved Gamma 2.4 Settings For Movie Mode HDMI and Component Inputs

Greetings Colleagues,

Herein are the curve gamma 2.4 settings for movie modes, with graphs of gamma curves for hdmi and component inputs. As recommended from other members, the gamma curve goes to 2.2 @ 0 ire for more "pop" and results in brightness settings on AVS Forum 709 Brightness pattern with bar 17 and above flashing. The graphs show gamma curve above 70 ire increasing for some unknown reason, perhaps the tv was designed this way.

This may be the last posting unless I find another technique.

[Unrelated Tip: If you use an amplified indoor antenna for OTA, you may want to put a 0-20 variable attenuator on its maximum setting on the tv's cable input to improve reception - see HDTV Technical Forum for further information or recommendations]

10% Window 22% APL Revisted:

Greetings Colleagues,

I am working on an old recommendation for plasma calibrations to use 10% Window 22% APL patterns. I did extensive reviews of discussions on patterns to use with plasmas and I noticed that the one seasoned forum member that strongly recommended their use appeared to be experienced specifically in calibrating samsung tvs, while the others had other types, such as panasonic, LG, etc. Also, a samsung website recently stated that regular and apl windows may be used.

So I thought that I would try to see if these windows are better for our samsung and post new settings for component and hdmi inputs. Preliminarily, I have already completed the hdmi settings but they may need a little tweaking (took 6-7 hours - very difficult patterns to work with but I finally got the gamma curve a little flatter.)

Post to you soon,

Vincentfam

10% Window 22% APL Revisted HDMI Settings:

Greetings Colleagues,

Herein are the 10% window 22% apl pattern settings for HDMI modes. I have emailed the Learned Zoyd and he recommends for plasma calibrations window sizes between 6% - 11%, with apl above 20% and below 35%. The standard mode has gamma @ 2.0 with brightness adjusted with AVS Forum 709 apl clipping pattern with bar 20 flashing. The movie mode has gamma @ 2.4, but 2.2 @ 0 ire, with brightness adjusted with AVS Forum 709 brightness clipping pattern with bar 17 flashing. These settings may be slightly tweaked later on.

Component settings, and slightly tweaked hdmi settings, should be posted by this weekend.

So how do you think these new settings compare with all of the ones you have posted? I think it's great that you still continue to take the time to tweak this set with it being as old as it is now. But don't get me wrong, I love having new settings to try on it. smile.gif

The 10% Window 22% APL Revisted HDMI Settings appear to have more and better color detail and perception, especially in dark scenes. I can actually see some various grades of color that I did not see before. The colors look a little deeper and I had to double check to see if I had accidentally changed the color space to native. The first thing I noticed while calibrating was that these patterns revealed rgb settings were way off (not even close) between 0 ire and 30 ire. Correcting this issue may have alone corrected some detail problems for the movie mode. The real problem was pushing this tv to its limits (a lot of color clipping) in trying to apply the new adjustment techniques for movie and standard modes. Adjusting the component inputs, however, should be easier because I kind of know what to expect from the hdmi settings.

I believe that Zoyd (i.e. the Learned Zoyd) was and is correct on the use of these patterns for the samsung plasma. I am not sure how these patterns would apply to other tvs. I will probably tweak the hdmi settings and do the component settings by tomorrow.

Tweaking this tv is just a hobby that I probably developed during my engineering days. It is either do this tweaking or cut grass. I prefer calibration over cutting grass.

Hey Vincent, sorry for the long delay. Between work and the kids time has been short lately. But I finally got a chance to test these newest settings this past weekend and had some extended viewing time with them.

Must say they look very good. That was during the day time I thought they looked good, then after it was dark wow. The picture really came alive and is quite impressive.

So I think the picture looks very good, not sure it can get better anymore but you've surprised me in the past.

Final Settings

Final 10% Window 22% APL HDMI and Component Settings:

Greetings Colleagues, and (by the way) happy father's day LDouglasLJr:

Herein are perhaps my final settings for hdmi and component inputs, which used the 10% Window 22% APL calibration windows. There are some minor changes from the last posted settings, with some minor tweaks to level out color and gamma.

Our tv is considered to be 720p, but in reality is a 768p tv. Fundamentally, from my research, a 720p tv such as ours will only display a native 720p picture. If the input signal is other than 720p, the tv will convert the signal up or down to translate it into its native 720p broadcast. Understanding this fundamental process, I changed my blu ray format from 1080i to display 720p content during my calibrations for my final settings below. See the Wisegeek: http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-the-...080p-hdtvs.htm

Before doing any final calibrations, I was hoping that my tv would somehow breakdown so that I can purchase a newer model tv. But that didn't happen. However, I read a recent web article that stated that there is essentially no difference between 720p and 1080p if you are watching television shows, which I do; but a significant difference if you watch streaming videos or blu ray movies with 1080p content.

Also, I am looking into Roku as a substitute for my cable tv service.

Nonetheless, herein are the settings:

Thanks Vincent Happy Fathers Day to you as well, I believe you said you had kids.

I'll give these settings a try tonight. I too have too wanting a newer set but this one is still working great and I can't see getting rid of it just to get a newer model.

The "Game Mode" Indirect Impact (?)

Game Mode Indirect Impact (?)

Greetings Colleagues,

This is not a posting of new settings, rather, this is a posting about an indirect impact that the game mode may have on this hdtv.

From what I have reviewed, the game mode for this tv is for use in eliminating a lag when connecting the tv to game consoles. Turning this mode on will turn off some of the tv's video processors to decrease lag in gaming, but the picture quality is degraded. This game mode (turning it on) jacks up sharpness and contrast and it lowers brightness, and the greyscale settings go to default. When you turn off the game mode, your calibrated settings for movie and standard will return.

However, I think that I have noticed some indirect benefits from this game mode by turning it on for about a couple of minutes then turning it off. This initially shuts off some of the tv's processors (by turning on the game mode) and then turns them back on (by turning off the game mode). After I have done this complete process a couple of times (turning on game mode then turning it off), I noticed that the video quality may have improved. I do not know if this resets the video processors, etc., and therefore readjust and improve picture quality. The only thing that I know is that the picture quality looks a little better.

The Upcoming Native Settings

Greetings Colleagues,

I have been reviewing some of the recent discussions on the forum, which includes subjects on "color gamuts" and the possible benefits on using wider gamuts during calibrations. I have noticed that, after reading this material, that I have yet to calibrate our tv using the native color space using recent techniques.

Therefore, in the upcoming, you will see a posting for native color space settings using recent techniques. The auto color space settings previously posted will be tweaked either today or tomorrow and just updated in its original June 13, 2014 posting.

Still around,

Your friend in picture quality,

The Native Color Space

The Native Color Space Settings using 10% Window 22% APL, HDMI and Component Settings:

Greetings Colleagues,

Herein are the native color space settings using recent techniques. The colors should be a little more vibrant than using the auto color space setting.

Lastly,

Greetings Friends,

One last recommendation. You may want to change or turn your HD signal input (cable, dish, etc.) to 720p instead of native. I noticed that our television goes through a little more processing when using an input other than 720p.

Finally, I done bought me a guitar and, with lessons, my finger tips are a hurtin'. I will be out a while tryin' to learn to play.

Good luck and I will only report again if there is a new technique or if I purchase a new television.

Your friend in picture quality,

The guitar playing Vincentfam!
