I purchased a 5020 a few weeks ago. I had a ISF calibrator come out to calibrate it. He mentioned it only allowed 2 point calibration as it did not have controls to do a 10 point calibration.

When he finished it looks good.

I noticed a special on a vide processor at Spectra Cal. I am wondering if using a video processor would improve the picture on the Epson more.

I just want to get the best picture possible.

How did the calibration end up? DeltaEs under 3 across the board? Saturation and color checker Deltas under 3?
If so, you probably would not see improvement that would be worth the cost. I have all my own gear and a projector that only has 2 point and no CMS and no processor.. if you have the disposable income a processor with a LUT can do things no built in tools can do, however the return on investment may not be all that Night and day or maybe it would, it all depends.. Enjoy your projector, it will need a calibrations touch up in a few hundred hours.. you can always add more stuff later.
