I have played with the Moome outboard box for use with displays without projector cards, and have replicated the same performance I saw on Cliff's setup.
My impression is that the Moome gamma bump affects chiefly the darks, not the whites. It may increase the whites a bit, but that's an overall light level concern that can be easily replicated simply by goosing up the Contrast control a bit.
The real value of the Moome gamma bump is not in the whites, not in the blacks, but in the mid-grays, just above black. It keeps black dead black
- I call that "clamping to black" - while allowing you to see more of the shadow details - by a long shot - than without it.
Improving the pic immensely. Thanks, Cliff, for introducing me to that!
