It depends on which model you plan to purchase (VT or GT) and what you are planning to do calibration wise.
- The freely available "Custom" picture mode will give you access to the advanced picture settings on both models (2pt white balance, gamma presets, CMS and panel brightness for the GT50 ; 2pt & 10point WB, 10pt gamma, gamma presets, CMS and panel brightness for the VT50).
- You can also calibrate Cinema, THX and THX day modes white balance (2 pt) using the service menu (everything else is locked).
- But if you want or need 2 fully tweakable picture modes, You'll need an "unlocked" VT. To unlock the isf modes, you can hire someone or you can do it yourself by buying a calibration proggy with the appropriate licence (the cheapest one will prolly be controlcal). Atm there is no free proggy available and remote control secret codes did not leak out.
