Calibrate my Plasma X-rite and Software

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Hello

sorry for my bad english :-))

I want next Week to buy a X-rite i1 display Pro for my plasma Samsung PS64e8090 to calibrate.

My question to you

Can I use the software hfcr with the X-Rite i1 Display pro?

I once read that this is not possible, is it?

TXS and grettings

I have to ask if anyone who is using HCFR v3 with the meter Adreas is considering has been sucessful in calibration of a display????


Seems that with free software.....you pretty much get what you pay for.

Ofcours hcfr is not CALman or Chromapure, but it's still a good free alternative. I think many including myself started with HCFR. and the display pro is a really good cheap meter, that can be accompanied with a spectro and either CALman or Chromapure if the op find the hole calibration process interisting

ok, very Thanks...

but

Is there a free software that is possibly better than the HCFR?

What software is free for the best?

Is there a guide to the Hfcr in German?

no, it's important to use small APL patterns from avshd 709 for greyscale and Small APL color for the cms.

Yes, download the free avs hd 709, burn into dvd, play the disc on the ps3 and calibrate with your meter and colorHCFR v3 wink.gif

You haven't researched it, have you?

I admit that I didn't spend days trying to use it and read the over 1,000 post in it's thread but I did give it a once over and concluded that it looks too much like a work in progress and not a finished product with ongoing support..

Take for instance the i1display3 that Andreas is interested in getting to calibrate his plasma display. X-Rite only recently release code that would improve the meter's accuracy for plasma displays. Something to do with synching and not synching at different light levels. Since John hasn't worked on HCFR for the last couple of month's, I'd think it's unlikely that it contains this code.

ChromaPure and CalMAN have their shares of bugs too, and you pay for the privilege of finding that out. There are plenty of sophisticated non-pro calibrators using HCFR with a great deal of success.

There is nothing wrong with "free". For example, the wonderful and free DVDO iScan Duo Control Panel program was in use long before the commercial software guys got around to putting controls in their programs and it is still by far better. If you've ever needed to make large adjustments using the remote control you'll understand what a valuable tool the Control Panel is.

IMO, re: HCFR and Control Panel, the expression "you get what you pay for" does not apply. wink.gif

Very true.

Makes me wonder if there is other software that calibrators use that is rock solid or do they just use higher end spectros and use the xy coordinates that's part of the device and do their own math?

There are several calibrators that still use one (and/or more) below

ColorFacts
Progressive Labs
Sencore
AccuCal I1Pro DCS
Custom Software, programming by others
Custom Software, programming by Calibrator
Old school using raw data from meter itself

Has X-Rite released an update to their iProfile software? I know that they are working on one, but its not on their website yet.

Don't know about iProfiler. I was talking about code that other calibration software has implemented from X-Rite to yield better performance with plasma displays and the i1Display3 meter.

With windows Seven no driver needed, if XP or vista you need to install drivers, see the post from New Scientist

I installed the HCFR v3.0.4.0 software and that went without a hitch. During the course of my reading I realised that I have to put my iProfiler CD into the drive and run the i1d3ccss.exe file from the command prompt.


this will generate the spectral sample files which can be found in \\Application data\color folder

So now I can take the CD out of the drive and put it away.
I then plugged in the Display Pro sensor into the USB port. The yellow bubble New Hardware found, blah blah appeared and went. No problem there.
Then I ran the HCFR software. Cool. I clicked on the New button on the toolbar. This dialog box appeared.

The curtplame guide says choose "DVD manual" from the drop down box so I did. Then clicked Next. This gives you the sensor select dialog box.

As you can see the Xrite i1 DisplayPro sensor appears in the drop down list. I didn't install any drivers for it remember. I clicked the Finish button. Then I went to the Measures menu and chose Sensor->Configure... and the Argyll Meter Property Page appears

Those .ccss files I generated above now appear in the Spectral Sample drop down box.

Now I'm not sure if I needed to choose any of those but I chose the first one on that list for my LCD TV. Then I clicked OK.
Then I went to the Advanced menu and selected Preferences.

I unchecked the Use measured colors box as shown. This was as per post #610.
Then in the Advanced tab I checked the Do not use luminance in delta E formula as shown below

I left everything else as it was on this tab and dialog box and clicked OK.
This gave me the following screen (note the Sensor box)

hy There,

txs i have Windows 7, i didn´t a driver...

what settings should I do with the Samsung PS64e8090 before calibrating?

is it right that I have to calibrate each mode?

etc.
does this suit 3d?

thank you

You calibrate for you BD/DVD player in movie mode and warm 2 (better starting point for greyscale, gamma and CMS) wink.gif

Hello,

Curtpalme write:

If you are using a Blu-ray test disc, set the "Color Space - Standard" option to HDTV - REC 709.
If you are using a Standard DVD test disc that is in NTSC format, set the Color Space - Standard option to SDTV - REC 601 (NTSC).
If you are using a Standard DVD test disc that is in PAL or SECAM format, set the Color Space - Standard option to PAL/SECAM.


what it the right for me??

i have a Playstation 3
i didn´t have a BluRay burner.

i will be a DVD write.


maybe someone here can German?
I have problems with the translation of the English into German, which could help me with the calibration in German.

I can not some English.

download the AVCHD version of AVSHD 709, burn into DVD, read by the PS3

the samsung E8000 : Movie Mode, Color Space : custom, Wam 2

And start the calibration wink.gif
