JVC RS66 Auto Calibration

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Although the RS66 looks great out of the box and would be just fine until a full calibration I thought since I have a Spyder4 laying around I would try JVC’s auto calibration. I will post screen shots below. Please bare in mind I took these with my phone in total darkness of the theater while the auto calibration was going through its steps. I did not screen cap it as the first time I ran the program and tried the screen cap it lock up the program.

For the first few day’s I just watched and enjoyed the projector on THX mode. To me it was great. I know others find it to processed but I just came from a DLP Optoma HD8200 so I like the digital look and the THX setting.

My setup is a Stewart 2.35.1 138” Ultra Matte 150 (1.5 gain) with a throw of 17’. I used the auto cal. for 16.9 setting (User 3), 2.35.1 (User 2), and 3D Setting (User 4).

I calibrated the User 2, and User 3 setting with the exact same setting except for Brightness, Contrast, and Iris. It shows 27hr on the projector.

User 2 (Setup for 2.35.1)
Color Profile Standard
Color Temp. 6500K
Gamma Normal
Dark Level White 1
Bright Level White 3
Tone White -1
Contrast 7
Brightness 3
MPC - Film - Enhance 20, Dynamic Contrast 0, Smoothing 0
Iris -11
Lamp Power Low


User 3 (Setup for 16.9)
Color Profile Standard
Color Temp. 6500K
Gamma Normal
Dark Level White 1
Bright Level White 3
Tone White -1
Contrast 5
Brightness 3
MPC - Film - Enhance 20, Dynamic Contrast 0, Smoothing 0
Iris -10
Lamp Power High


User 4 (Setup for 3D)
Color Profile 3D Cinema
Color Temp. 7500K

Dark Level White
Bright Level White

Contrast 9
Brightness 0
MPC - Film - Enhance 20, Dynamic Contrast 0, Smoothing 0

The setup was fast and worked with out any problem. For the most part it was totally automated and walked you through the rest. For a cheap meter and calibration software that you can’t tweak I was still pretty impressed. It does a 33 step calibration and takes about 11 min. from start to finish. It will be interesting when I get a full calibration on it next month. I will redo the JVC auto cal. just before a real calibration and compare the result. I will post back here when I get that done.

It does run a log before and after calibration but I have not been able to find what it does with the information to compare it. It most definitely improved colors and I pick up a little brightness after calibration.

In short I am very happy I ran software with Spyder. It is with out a doubt better than any factory settings. The biggest improvement was on 3D... again I gained few lumens (I will have to check my notes for the correct amount) and color is VERY much improved.

I am not saying run out and buy a Spyder. For just a little more money you can pay for a full calibration, but if you can find one super cheap or know of someone that has one I think it will get you very close.

Thanks for the info! Since I have a i1pro which I profile my C-6 to and use Calman 5 software will wait until the X95/RS66 and X75/RS56 JVC projectors get added to the autocal feature in Calman. I have only 18 hrs on my projector and hope it is done by the time I hit the 100 hr mark. smile.gif

Hi guys

I've the rs65 but haven't done auto cal yet. Will it be just like this or has it been modified for this new release?
