#2 and #3 - Manufacturer's in their quest to get your dollars, have a tendency not to stick to specs, but rather a religion of playing with the video results to try
and get your attention: ie LG=Blue, Samsung=Green, Sony=Red, Sharp=Yellow, etc. Of course this makes them are no longer in spec. In the Base setups of these TVs are what we call White Balance settings. Usually control things such as your Cool, Medium and Warm, etc. These usually have to be calibrated first (With all other values having been zeroed out first.) to the companies specs, before continuing on with 2, 10, 11, 20, 21, etc Point calibrations. On newer sets White Balances are usually part of the Menu. Older computers, the White Balances were locked out behind Service Menus.
If left un-calibrated, then you're trying to compensate for these out of spec settings, with your IREs.
How often have you seen Out of the Box specs, not looking the set's best, but rather looking like what they think the consumer wants them to look? Problem here is, we all have our likes and dislikes - hence some people preferring one brand over another when they're first contemplating what set to purchase. Me, I like LG, and I noticed the last time I went into Best Buy, all the LGs looked better than the rest of the sets there! If all the sets were calibrated to spec, you'd have a much harder time trying to decide!
Have found the closer I got to the ideal specs in my calibrations, the fluctations, seem to dampen down to a minimal amount.Edited by p5browne - 10/25/12 at 7:59pm
