I have the Input memory resolution and output config memory and resolution assignments in the default configuration. The idea is that I will modify the particular cells as I make changes to the various parameters.
Any input on this document would be welcome.
Edit: Alot of changes to the document as my knowledge has increased while reading (and re-reading) the pertinent sections of the manual. I am now thinking that maybe I won't need to utilize all the input memories for the sources coming from my 4x4 HDMI switch, but we will see how they "behave" (EDID) when I get this all set up. I do have some anomalies with the RS-35 to account for, as noted in the last page of the document; this information was gleaned from Greg Rogers' review of the RS-35 in WSR circa 2010.
I have made significant progress in my research and planning for the installation of the Radiance XS-3D into my dual-display setup. Attached is the updated document.
It turns out that my configuration may be simpler than I orginally thought, as both displays should (optimally) be sent either 1080/60p or 1080/24p. However, the RS-35 has an issue handling 1080/60p HDMI 4:2:2 with Video levels, so Greg Rogers recommended sending either 1080/60p HDMI 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 with manual selection of PC (Enhanced) levels in the RS-35, and then re-calibrate black and white.
I realize that ideally
the HDMI levels (Video or PC) be matched between sources and the Lumagen and between the Lumagen and the display device(s), but can a mismatch in the output be overcome by adjustments in the display device?
Is there a way to set the Radiance XS-3D to output
4:2:2 with PC (aka Enhanced) video levels? According to the Output HDMI Format section on page 17 of the manual, I do not see where this is possible:
Output HDMI Format
You can specify the digital output range as “RGB-PC level” (e.g. for 8-bit 0 to 255) or “RGB-Video level” (e.g. for 8-
bit 16 to 235). “YCbCr 422” is the recommended output format. For the HDMI RGB output, setting the level as
video allows blacker-than-black and whiter-than-white. The command is:
MENU ® Output ® Styles ® [Style] ® HDMI Format ® Type ® (YCbCr422, YCbCr444. RGBPC
level, RGB-Video level)
I did find that you can change the HDMI level on the input, as noted in page 19 of the manual:
This command specifies if the HDMI inputs use video levels or PC levels. he input video level should be set to
match the expected range of your video source. A mismatch can cause the image to be too dark or bright. An
output video level mismatch can also have the same effect. The command is:
MENU ® Input ® HDMI Setup ® Level ® (Video, PC)
