Now this is interesting:

"There is also an integrated test pattern generator inside of the LG OLED models. If you’re calibrating with CalMAN, it can create its own test patterns so you don’t need to connect anything over HDMI and it can do it with full 10-bit triplets. You’ll still need software and a meter, but it makes the process that much easier and more reliable."

I don't suppose this is something we'll see being implemented on the older 2018 models?

Unfortunately the internal pattern generator is a 2019 TV feature only. It does however support SDR, HDR, and Dolby Vision Calibration.

Awesome feature, hopefully, this is something that will become standard across all displays.

I was wondering about highlights that are associated with color saturation, something I didn't know I was missing, until I actually did a color calibration. At the bottom of the article it is mentioned, but only concerning white boost being disabled. Ultimately, I prefer detail over brightness or a balanced approach.

The same functionality as the 2018 TVs. However now you can reset a CalMAN calibrated picture mode back to factory, without having to factory reset the whole TV.

Is this something that will be coming to the 2018 models? Resetting a CalMAN calibrated picture mode without needing to do a factory reset?

Also for the 2019 is it possible to have a unique custom tone mapping per picture memory as well as per input?

Are these patterns visible without CalMAN software?

Is this TPG solution inside the TV (DDC) or is it a kind of client3 client?
Will it be usable only with CalMAN or also by anyone who knows how to control/activate it?

1. Unfortunately it’s only a LG 2019 TV feature


2. Each HDR picture mode can have three custom tone maps. The TV will interpolate in between the three that you set up. Say you set up tone maps for 1000, 4000 and 10,000 nits content, If you play 6000 nit content the TV will interpolate between the 4000 and 10,000.

The pattern generator is a part of the LG Alpha9 Gen2, and Alpha 7 Gen 2 chips in the 2019 TVs.

That is a question for LG.

Yes, it is good enough. But, it will be even better if you can borrow/rent or buy an i1 Pro 2 to profile it on your screen. Then it will be far more accurate.

The main benefit is that once profiled, your meter will be far more accurate for that screen. You could do a quick search on Spectro vs Colorimeter and you will get good information.

I don't have an Oled TV. Someone with that model could chime in whether it is good or if there is room for improvement. Compared to what I have that looks great!

Like many others you used the wrong EDR for the meter. The OLED one is for RGB OLED only and not for WOLED like the one you tried to calibrate. You should definitely repeat with RAW XYZ.
L30Z3N and Rolls-Royce like this.

I did the hdr calibration again with my i1display pro profiled by the spectro i1pro 2 bought almost new on ebay.

I have a few question :

Is the white color accurate with i1pro2revb?

Do you calibrate hdr on D65 white target or i see some pro use a custom point? What's best?
I also think technicolor mode dont use d65.

Any tips to set up the custom tonemapping properly?
After calibration on hdr cinema mode i have a peak luminance of 765 nit.

I read that after upload of the custom tone mapping you should have tone mapping turn off is that correct?
I found the hdr image rather dull without tone mapping on.

Cheers
