So is the color box actually scaling the signal in addition to adding color enhancements?

No resolution scaling as far as I can see. it's only supposed to change color and contrast/brightness values.

Correct what comes in is what goes out for resolution and signal.

Okay so this box basically bumps up the color to some degree. But you mention that it gives more pop to the image. If ones display is d65 calibrated, will using the ee change that d65?

To get the best out of it, it should be calibrated.

So basically, you set the projector to it's default values and brightest mode, at Gamma 2.20.

You then run their PC calibration software, which shows various shades on the display, you measure each, and enter it into the program.

The program then uploads a custom color map for your display, into the eeColor box.

You can choose to calibrate the eeColor to a true D65 display on your pj, or a mode called "native white" which is a brighter mode that uses what you projector shows at full white 254/254/254

Through this method, the eeColor box then knows what the full gamut is that your projector can handle, and maps the enhanced color within those limits.

It's very simple to use, and should be a nice little enhancement.

However, I also believe that I can use the eeColor boxes to correct each projector for the Dolby/Infitec filters I have been testing - I am planning to calibrate them while the filters are installed.

You can save multiple calibration profiles on your PC and use them as needed for different projectors, screens, or situations (such as Dolby correction).

If you use a different gamma than 2.20 normally, you can set the gamma on the projector back to your favourite setting, after the calibration procedure.

I just bought the Eecolor for my non-led vpr (sharp 20K).
A question ? linearity calibration is really needed if vpr is well calibrated ? I just did primary calibration and it seems to work fine ...

Some question regarding the eeColor image processor:

- Is the eeColor also useful on a plasma display ? Or is it only for Led type displays

- Is it overkill to use the eeColor after a Radiance mini3D processor or does it still makes sense to do so color-wise ?

- Since it does not scale, is a possible setup to use a DVDO Edge Green scaler and after that the eeColor image processor just before the display(s) ??

- How good is the CMS of the eeColor in calibrating a problem display ??

If your display is well calibrated then no linearity is needed. The linearity step is to deal with display anomalies if needed.

Yes the eeColor will work well on a Plasma. The eeColor primary purpose is for visual perception models. So it's calibration interface is for dealing with display anomalies not full calibration. But to get the full advantage from the eeColor you want a large native gamut.

I agree

Do you having any new comments on the eeColor box?

Unfortunately I've been stuck on a security assignment for the last two weeks and haven't been home to play with the goods!

Hoping to wrap it up in the next week or so.

Luckily I haven't had time to think too much about the home theater or it would be very frustrating.
