You mentioned that I should post AVIA/DVE/Etc. performance. Do you mean that I should do my measurements again with those, too? Or did you mean something else? I did all my measurements with GetGray, in case you're wondering
No, nothing sinister! I was merely trying to distinguish "true" out of the box performance, from OOB plus some time with a calibration disc doing proper contrast, brightness, etc. changes.
Also, just so I'm clear, what is "on/off CR". I realize that it means "on/off Contrast Ratio". But, what is it? What does it do? Is higher better? This is one point that I never fully understood.
On/off CR is the ratio of 100% white to 0% black luminance levels. It is one measure of how much "dynamic range" a display has.
Lastly, is their a noticable difference between 6000K and 6500K. I realize that, 'technically', at 6000K it will be more red or yellow. But in your experience, is this generally a noticable difference. And is D65 just 1 single point (white), or does D65 have to be achieved on all grayscale windows 0-100%?
D65 is a single point on the xy map. You want all of your grayscale points to be on it, if possible. However, deviations from this are generally inevitable. The Panasonic plasmas, though, should be able to get within a couple of points of dE from D65 across the grayscale. One dE is considered to be a Just Noticeable Difference (though since superceded) for static images, and under 4 is a good target for moving images. Since most people use CalMAN where it calculates a corrected dE, you do want to minimize your dE as much as possible, since there is likely still to be gamma error that hinders overall color performance. However, THAT is a bit more advanced of a topic.
