Still doesn't make sense. BT1886 gamma is 2.4 ... period. :)



True ... but in my experience the display gamma presets usually act as if the black level is zero. In fact, my LG actually...

That was my suspicion, but being an ancient AF pencil and color marker pusher, I didn't want to take the chance. Although, I did have a vague memory of this from a program that aired on HDNet. ;)

No argument there. :) When I said, "Gamma @2.4," read "Power Law with gamma =2.4." BT1886 is not gamma, it's an EOTF ;)

My point was that the phrase BT1886 2.2 makes no sense. The "gamma"...

No interest in either "solution" for my current display. There's very little that a 3D LUT would be able to improve and no chance of fixing the one big "flaw" of the display ... which isn't really...

It's hopeless. On my current display the MLL is ~0.12Nits and more like 0.16Nits when calibrated for ~115Nits reference white. Gamma @2.4 would just crush everything into a smokey haze. :) ... In...

There's also the possibility that many recent video sources were mastered/graded on monitors set to PL@2.2 ... so when displayed on a monitor that's closer to 2.4 while adding ABL on top, perhaps...

I haven't looked at any of the source code, but I'm guessing that it would probably be faster to start from scratch and build a native Linux app.

A lot of plasma owners complain that BT1886 is 'too dark' for their tastes. I assume this is because bt1886 often approaches 2.4 gamma on plasma ... plus the inevitable affects of ABL dimming the...
