But as proven by Cliff's Moome-equipped setup, there is a more
ideal gamma than 2.35, and according to Cliff all
CRTs need it, to do their finest work. Direct quote. I have found this to be absolutely
true on my 73" Mit CRT, no question, and it definitely shows up on his G90 stack, be it double or triple. My thanks to Cliff for personally taking the time to clue me in on all this!
The more ideal gamma of 2.2 has been illustrated recently here on this thread by Nashou, see #5109, from last page back. The pix there speak for themselves. Dynamite!
Kudos to Ken W and Craig R!
No thank you Bob, cause it was all of us in one big ass swoop that got the TRUE meaning of what CRT should be working together and that is the BOMB!
Darin came here not to long ago and we popped in Finding Nemo on DVD and watched the Abyss scene when the glasses get dropped into the dark. Holy SCHIT dude I mean SERIOUSLY, it was pitch black in my room. We both had huge smiles on our faces.
Yes, when done right, and I have to add this for ANYONE looking to do CRT, you MUST have proper color filtering and as well CMS! Me, I prefer Moome (Mike Parker Modded) along with the Lumagen Radiance. Absolutely BEYOND killer combo. Not only that, but that Radiance, damn, smokin, and it does 3D, advanced gamma, auto color/greyscale/gamma correction for most colorimeters/measurement "devices", as well as many many many other features!
I remember when I first saw that processor out at William's Blend Meet I actually laughed at it because the menu's look like an Atari 2600.
I'm not laughing any more though. Absolutely stunning. Over the years in it's development, Lumagen has raised the bar for ANYONE who has the nuts at this point to compete with them as the support has been bar none period as well as features. Not one single video processor on the market can come close to it.
Add the Mike Parker Mod's and DAMN.
Let's see. Art Sonneborn, Ken Whitcomb, Craig Rounds, Alan Gouger, AVSFORUM, Curt Palme, Curt's Forum, WALLACE, The folks at Lumagen, NASHOU!!!!!!, Clarence, BOMRAT (Arli), MIKE PARKER, SCOTT(TSE), TERRY, BRUCE, GANNON, sheesh, the list just goes on and on. (I'm sorry if I missed you the typing is a pain in the ASS!)
The best part is, people say CRT is dead. Uh huh, for the mainstream yes, but for the VIDEOPHILE, no. Absolutely NOT. It's that good when done right. ALWAYS will be.
