My first practice session with ChromaPure was to calibrate a Sharp LC-37D5U. It went very well.
The attached .xls (zipped) shows the results. (the PDF is too large to upload) Use the free xls report viewer (see my previous post)
Now keep in mind that these old Sharp sets are a bitch to calibrate because all the grayscale controls (gains and cuts) are buried in the SM and I had no desire to attempt those at this time. So disregard the grayscale and gamma, they are atrocious.
But this TV has a 3D CMS and that is what I wanted to practice with.
You can see the results. The Chromaticity before and after in particular.
ChromaPure is so easy to use and has a simple learning curve. Many years with HCFR have educated me to the ins and outs of video calibration and Tom's guide is a real help. The ChromaPure help is also very good.
My DPT94 was bundled with MonacoXrite Pro software used many times to calibrate computer monitors. This is excellent software as well with a good work flow and is highly automated. The main components are calibrate and profile. The latter takes only 5 minutes to meter 32 patches and generates an .icm which is automatically loaded at windows boot to the video card lut. Sadly it is not well suited to TV calibration.
The Xrite bundle was puchased October 2004 so the meter is old but has been kept in a sealed bag with dessicant and seems to be in working order as far as I can ascertain.
IMO ChromaPure is well worth the investment.
