There was nothing about what he was setting his light out put at, nor did I make reference to a dark room.
Why are you so defensive?
Just two posts from the post you quoted, Larry posted his calibration report, saying he targeted 26fL for his dark room. Maybe you missed it?
Of-course 30 to 35 FtL is not carved in stone, but it is a reference range for a VT60.
Yes, but for some that will cause eye fatigue in a dark room. Apparently you missed his calibration post... I thought you were telling or suggesting that he targets 32fL or 35fL max. Again, he must have his reasons for calibrating to 26fL.
I am sure the guys that did the standard calibrated on the VT60 had there reasons for using a 10-18% window if in fact that is what they used . I disagree and have better success using a 2% non APL pattern window for the type of calibrations I do on my VT60, for the reasons that I have stated. That said it is important to pull your meter back to a point that your meter is reading inside the window about 95% of that window, also If my pattern generator had 5% window I would very much like to see the results from that size of window. .
Yes window size or which patterns to use is subjective and dependent on model. Larry must have his reasons for using 10% windows.
And I believe 10-18% standard windows is what they recommended for the Panasonic plasmas (APL for the F8500). I'll see if I can dig it up.
edit: According to buzz
that's what they recommended.
Also could you please explain what you mean by Gamma is a moving target on Plasma's
Because of the ABL, your gamma will change based on the APL.
