So to me it looks like that is the kind of information you are looking for...
How were you set up for reading your plasma and how was it out in your opinion?
I am guessing you can test as of right now actually.
In ColorHCFR make sure it is set like this...
Preferences - References Tab
Gamma Calculation set to display Gamma with Black compensation.
Reference Gamma 2.2
Don't Change White. Should be greyed out and reads D65
Standard (if using HDMI from Blueray) HDTV Rec 709
Preferences - Advanced
Under DeltaE do NOT check off the following two options...
Do not use luminance Data and Use Gamma Reference to computer blah blah blah...
Under Measures - Sensor configure
Set to Eye One Display - Plasma
The two check boxes below that NOT checked off.
Ensure that the screens are set to xyY in the Display box on the right had side.
Leave the meter on the TV with regular programming or cartoon running for 30 full minutes before starting. Must warm up the probe.
turn off all the lights in the room. Dim the laptop display and close the lid slightly. Dark as possible. As far as possible from the laptop place on DVD black case interior and do the Calibrate Internal Sensor Offsets. Do this as expediantly as you can or the sensor will cool on the DVD case.
Now. Stick it back on the TV. Make sure it remains flush the whole time.
Take 2 sets of Greyscale and color. Only ONLY use windows and no full field. Use AVS709. Make absolutely sure to use the EXACT same patterns from the same disk on the player and so on. The original HCFR position of the probe should be the EXACT same position. Within millimeters of the position used if you happen to move it. don't move it after HCFR if there is no reason to. Just run right into Calman if that works without moving it. Shifting the positin of the meter sometimes effects reading btw. when not taking readings it is a good idea to use the exact same resting point like... Leave a 50% grey pattern up. That way you are not bending the results with a precooled meter that sat on a black screen for five minutes while you went upstairs to let the dog out and crap like that.
Repeat this with the CalMan Software using their own proceedure.
In Calman, ensure you are using same dE calculations (Luv 1973 and not dE94 or Lab) if you want to confirm dE's. Otherwise just screenshot the xyY data in HFCR test 1 and 2 and Calman test 1 and 2.
If all the 4 tests are within 1% zone of eachother I would surmise it makes no difference. Not "how their luminance graph looks or that chart looks and so on. Just what is the data. The numbers. Specifically... xy and Y and it's gamma and contrast ratio estimate. Period.
If I had Calman I would do it myself. I don't.
