But this will depent on the settings in the RGB Gain adjustment (etc. I did a calibration on the 95ES with the custom 5 - native lamp output - to D65 with the red ( who run out first of headroom ) just before it color the 253 white bar , and then I could only get the contrast to max 75 - but it measurred a higher light output then my "normal" cinema 1/ custom 2, D65 Setting/ calibration with contrast at 79 ).
So part off why W. Mayer can achieve a D65 setting with contrast at 100 without
any clipping can be because off he´s adjustment/setting in the RGB gain and to a lot lesser degree Bias settings - right !? And others cant come over etc. contrast at 90 because they have adjusted different or started with a other preset !
so to maximize the light output, you need to find and adjust the red ( who allmost allways run out first with UHP bulbs ) so it not clip at 253/254 ( if you want the full video range ) or 235 ( if you want max output with no WTW information back ) and then get the green/ blue at same level, all at D65. Then you have your max light output at D65 , without any clipping and it dosnt matter what the contrast number is then !....correct !?
