I have read the statements about cuts and drives being essentially
equal to brgt and cont. you made a declarative statement
that I disagree with. there are no absolutes and the "art" aspect of calibrations backs me up.
the colors of rgb have different wave heights and lengths.
one short and high- blue
one long and high- green
one medium length and medium high-red
this is an approximation.
As I am sure you know, adjusting gray scale is not add 2 take away 1 type a deal
where it is an absolute. the waves change and the balance changes. the waves are not perfect. I do not know if it is electronics or just the nature of color pixels.
the brightness and contrast do slide along the "range of values" allowed by the
numerical values set in the starting hex to the ending hex of the 3 colors defined in the service menu.
so in a sense one can say what you believe.
where we differ is it is not absolute. the user controls can only go along the defined
range in the service menu. changing the range in the service menu gives the user controls a whole new wave to move along.
as such, I have been able to affect gamma.
