Dedicated movie calibration setting

This probably should go in the calibration section, but I am posting it here because this section of AVS tends to attract people who are wanting a cinema in their home, not just surround with a big screen.

Now, I don't know about you, but I actually like the look of 4k D-Cinema projection.

So as many know, the colour temp of home video is D6500K or x: 0.313, y: 0.329.
For combination TV and packaged media, this is the right choice.

However, what about movies only?

The DCI have a difference white point for digital cinema where that colour temperature is slightly lower and the white point is more centred on the CIE diagram.

When we had only rec709, it made sense to use D65 as that is the colour space used for HDTV.

Now we have BT2020/P3, is it not time to align closer to the DCI standard?

What is interesting is that the x,y points for colours are the same for both D6500K and DCI.

So I found a DCI specs in the HCFR software and decided to experiment. In doing so, it shifts green higher and I was concerned that maybe the images might have a green hue.

As it turns out, colours look more real.
