I have an RS20 with 80 hours on it. I am brand new to calibration with a CMS. I have read for many hours in this thread over the last couple weeks to get knowledge on how to do this.
Thank you to all of you who have provided such great information for a newbie to calibration like me. A special thank you to Manni for the great recap on all the different methods used on the RS20.
I just purchased an Eye1 display 2 meter and am using it with Colorfacts.
I have literally put over 40 hours on the projector this week trying to learn calibration and the colorfacts software. It really is amazing how it all works and has helped me to understand most of all I have been reading about for so long as far as calibration goes. I know I still have a lot to learn though.
I just had kneee surgery last Friday, so I have spent all week laid up and trying to get this projector dialed in since I can't do much walking right now.
Anyway, I have learned so much this week by actually putting all the knowledge in this thread to work. I believe I am on the right path and think I have figured out how all the settings interact with each other, however I am definately missing something in the chain of calibration.
Grayscale is no problem for me, but setting the color in the CMS is driving me nuts ! I have tried so many options and there is something big I am missing.
I hope someone can spot it and help me out.
I realize there is a firmware update coming out hopefully next week to fix the CMS
, but I wanted to practice and learn how to calibrate while I have the time right now.
It seems I can get my x and y values real close and my DE's down to around 8 or lower ( I realize I need to get them all below 4 ), but my problems are with my Y luminence values. I have tried for so many hours to juggle the settings, but it is not working out for me.
Here are my CMS settings :
Master color is set to -12
Hue Sat. Brightness
Red -15 30 -13
Yellow 2 -15 19
Green -4 -3 26
Cyan -2 -13 28
Blue 3 -21 13
Magenta -2 -2 21
Here is the colorfacts measured data for the primaries:
Red Green Blue
x .644 .297 .147
y .323 .615 .056
Y 8.087 27.044 2.359
De 4.2 3.0 10.5
Any help is greatly appreciated.
