And for anyone who want to compare, here are my deault settings...
In contrast to the classic CRT calibration/s I still did a whole 4 - 5 years ago
today's sets have no deflection yokes, no power supplies set to approximately
31.5 KVolts, no differing crystal clocks, no discrete circuit boards, or delay lines.
The sets today are uniformly derived with phase locked loops, crystal countdown to 1/100 million, digital signal processing, zener diode based voltage supplies, uniform lead inductance & capacitance vs discrete boards.. Even plasma cells are pretty uniform.
One observation I have is that most in this forum are loath to turn on digital edge detection. I would beg to differ.
For one thing, non hi-def broadcast is still 480i in N.America, and 576i in Europe. Zoom that picture up a lot & the pix often look fuzzy.. The old edge enhancement algorithm used the trick of making any edge look like a square wave by increasing the high frequency components, increasing upper Fourier transform components, modern DSP also uses matrix edge detection based on context. The modern stuff first extrapolates whole edges using matrix based image processing before deciding something is
an edge, and then unobtrusively as possible enhances only a real edge..
Give the digital edge enhancement 'ON' a try if you see a fuzzy picture.
Here are my default service settings. I would be interested in seeing others in all regions.
