Will professional calibration stop my TV from looking so red on warm temp?

post #1 of 6

Right, I've calibrated my TV by disk, and on warm settings it looks very red.

If it does correct this, will it still be redder then the cool or normal settings, on an uncalibrated TV?

It's a Panasonic VIERA® 32" Class U3 Series LCD

It depends on how calibratable your TV is... many 32" models have very limited calibration controls. I don't know the U3 series so can't say one way or the other.

What happens if you select the next "higher" color temp setting (like warm1 or Standard or neutral or whatever it might be called)? Are images objectionably too blue?

A calibrator would likely measure "white" using the 2 closest color temp settings and pick the one that's closer to d65 to use as the calibration starting point. So if Warm1 measures 6000k and Neutral (for example) measures 6800K, the calibrator would almost always start with the "Neutral" setting.

How well or even whether your TV can be calibrated is determined by the controls available to the calibrator. These days, most of these controls are in the user menu.

The european Panasonic TX-L32U3E costs $344.00. Professional calibration will cost you at least $300.00. Is it worth it? Ehh, no.

Do lots of reading here on AVS and you will get an idea how a picture is supposed to look wink.gif

I have a 32" Panasonic in my bedroom, I bet the only people in the country that have calibrated ones are other pro calibrators smile.gif
