Other than this, im lost as to the steps i should take. There has to be a better method than just 'eyeballing'
Does anyone have an idea where i might look for research on an approach to calibration? Does the DVE disc provide something like this?
1st, if you dont have one already, you will need a blue filter. Without it, you can't really set up your tint/color correctly. You can get one from THX.http://www.thx.com/home/dvd/blueglasses.html
You can, however, properly set up your picture and brightness levels in the mean time.
- Use the Animated moving bars brightness pattern to set black (brightness) levels. Adjust brightness up or down until the below black bars (-1%,
-4%) just disappear.
- Use the Animated moving bars contrast pattern to set picture (contrast) levels. Adjust picture up or down until the above white bars (+2%, +5%) just disappear.
These settings interact so you will have to go back and forth to set the best compromised level.
Getgray's user manual is here, I suggest you print it (if you havent already done so) and use it as a guide when viewng the disc:http://www.calibrate.tv/docs/GetGrayCalDiscReadme.zip
