latest hcfr fork + display2 and dark reading...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently got back into calibrating since I purchased a new plasma recently and was wondering if the Display2 still needs to have a dark reading performed upon first starting a calibration sequence. I noticed the new HCFR fork when I go to calibrate the sensor, it asks for a white pattern. What I had been then doing was provide a 100 IRE gray pattern and then hitting calibrate.

Is this totally incorrect and should I have used a 0 IRE pattern or just placed the sensor on a black surface (like a black DVD case)?

If the latter is the case, I guess I'll have to perform my calibrations again on my P50S60 and verify everything is still reading correctly.

Thanks in advance if anybody can lend some assistance.

Not much input here, guess most moved on to different calibration instruments. wink.gif

I went ahead and just re-calibrated using HCFR 2.1 and did the black reading initialization and hope my soon to be 2 year old Display2 is still reading accurate. The picture is pretty nice so hopefully it hasn't drifted much.

I'm still debating whether to get a used eye-one pro spectrometer or a colormunki display colorimeter.

For the i1D2 and the new HCFR version 3, use the same dark initialization method (meter on a flat black surface) as used with version 2.

Rightio, thanks Larry. Guess we can just disregard that it's asking for a white panel when you calibrate the meter, and just feed it the black surface.
