jvc dla-x55 calibration help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I purchased a jvc dla-x55 and was hoping to find calibration setting by others who have had great success.

I replaced my old Epson 3020 and although never saw them side by side I don't think the picture on the jvc is much better.

Any help support on how to tweak and if there is value in having it done professionally.

Thanks in advance

Thanks timescape

Is it worth getting a professional to calibrate and if so what should I expect to pay
post #5 of 8
I had mine professionally THX calibrated and it turned out fantastic. I paid around $500 for mine and it looks .....again, fantastic.

I also bought ChromaPure and the D3 meter and made my own calibrating setting. It looked good but not nearly as good as the pro calibrators. frown.gif Still, it looked better than the stock settings. I think when I getter better at calibrating it should look closer to the pro calibrator...at least that's what I'm hoping.

I did a bunch of reading and I think i might buy the same setup for calibrating that you have mentioned.

It sounds as though with the projector you need to recalibrate every couple hundred hours. So diy seems to be the best long term solution and as you state overtime hope to get better.

Did you use the Grey and color guide for dummies to get started

No. ChromaPure has a bunch of calibrating videos on their site and followed them. You also have to burn the REC709 disc. Really easy to follow but there is definitely a learning curve. Tom is really good at answering any questions and you get a lot of support from others in that thread.

No matter how you calibrate with the program it will look better than stock.
