NB in the post 660 (the last post of the previous page is the reading with Il Radiance as a Pattern generator)


This is what happens with Calman Home for LG in HDR and TPG Pattern Generator internal to LG E9, the bright peak at 100 ire is 741 nits.


The numbers seem to be there but the Gamma does not follow the ST 2084 HDR (PQ) but is a Power 2.2.
This is a strange thing that happens in my Calman Home LG but it doesn't happen in the Calman Hentusiast, so I don't know if the problem is software or the TPG TV
(While in SDR mode all readings are identical to what Enthusiast detects through Lumagen Pro)

Hi, to start thank you for your reply.
yes, I've seen it, so I asked for information on the cause or possible error of mine .... given the big difference I see if I use the Lumagen radiance Pro as a pattern generator that instead performs a correct HDR reading.

In this case I use Calman Home for LG and the Tv for pattern generator ... TPG internal




observes the previus post (number 660) in the last page... where i use the Lumagen Pro for pattern generator

The idea of this thread is to encourage contributions from Home Enthusiasts and the Professionals and build a calibration knowledge base with factual, useful information that all can learn from and use as we proceed through the model year.
That would be nice

  2. Would it be better to use an RGB OLED EDR if you set the new "Peak Brightness" setting to off?
    To my understanding this setting basically disables the white subpixel - or at least reduces its luminance significantly.
1) There so no major changes between 2018/2019 panels, as gamut/peak luminance remain the same. There were changes to electronics mainly. While the pixel shape/size has changed a bit it will not affect a lot the spectral response, so 2018 FSI EDR can be used from LG 2019 users also.

At least from the other tables X-Rite is coming (RGB OLED) or not using any spectral correction (using the Generic CMF selection), the WRGB OLED EDR will be a better choice when someone has a colorimeter as a stand-alone meter.

2) The Peak Brightness setting is explained there: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/139-d...l#post58608608

The white subpixel will not be disabled with Peak Brightness to Off.

The LG OLED WRGB displays implements white with target peak luminance higher than maximum luminance using three-color subpixels (W/R/G, B/W/R, G/B/W or R/G/B) among four-color (W/R/G/B) subpixels in order to adjust a color temperature.

In order to enhance the luminance of the LG OLED TV especially for HDR mode, an additional a W sub-pixel (unfiltered transmitting white light) has been added to the other 3 sub-pixels (RGB) which are filtered.

The unfiltered White sub-pixels are much more efficient than the RGB-subpixels, so efficient drive schemes based to 'White Replacement algorithm' utilize the W primary as much as possible and the RGB primaries as less as possible, by computing and removing/subtracting the neutral luminance from an RGB triad of sub-pixels and transfer/assign it to the W sub-pixel, this method increasing the overall efficiency of the display panel.

So the whole WRGB concept works by driving as more as possible the W subpixel the from other subpixels, the TV controller will zero the value of one sub-pixel so all the time 3-subpixels from the 4 will light up, so its impossible to see all subpixels light up the same time.

2) No, as for RGB OLED EDR file X-Rite used a Sony PVM-2541 RGB OLED Monitor to create the OLED spectral correction for i1Display PRO which can be useful when you will measure the Sony or FSI (Flanders Scientific Inc.) RGB OLED Broadcasting Monitors, not any consumer WRGB OLED.

For an Enthusiast, this is a great feature and i'm sure you will get great results but if you want perfection then you need to get an external TPG or use one of the known accurate disk based pattern sets.
If you see Panasonic iTPG, according to CalMAN instructions, you don't need to have Contrast/Brightness to specific positions (as LG require for iTPG to work).

The CalMAN workflow don't say that Panasonic iTPG has any problem to verify post calibration of HDR10/HLG, as verifying post-cal HDR10 with LG iTPG is not possible.

So looks like Panasonic engineers did a better job to their iTPG.

I haven't used Panasonic GZ2000 with iTPG to know more, have you used Panasonic iTPG?

If you know what you are doing, you can have better results spending less money from the person which will spend a lot of more money, but he will use problematic workflows (adjust OLED Light after profiling for example..OMG) and software/settings etc.

For example skipping 1D LUT can provide better results, which can be confirmed visually and by measurements also with SDR.

You cannot validate HDR with the internal pattern generator. It is physically located after the HDR processing block. After the HDR processing block the TV signal is in 2.2 gamma.

Hi, its normal the results you see, as the iTPG is after the HDR tone mapping function processing unit, so always it will measure gamma based panel response (not PQ-EOTF).

Your Lumagen since you send patterns from HDMI Input, TV see the HDR10 metadata and enable the PQ-EOTF tone mapping, so you will always has PQ-EOTF tracking measurements like that.

Something to note for your Lumagen PRO, its bit-perfect for patch generation for YCbCr 4:2:2 only, for 4:4:4 or RGB-Video, there small errors due to some internal processing, so patterns are not generated as solid color but with +-1 8bit difference (per each sub-pixel) if you check with digital signal analyzer.

When you are using YCbCr 4:2:2, the pixel window area is sold pixels and bit-perfect.

Thanks so much to both of you for the answers.

For Ted Thank, Always accurate and exhaustive in the answers... I know the fact of 4.2.2 on Radiance which is the one I use, but I wonder if it is correct in an absolute sense? or if perhaps it would be better to have an RGB generator....

I don't touch brightness and contrast because I find them correct for viewing.
Very good near black in E9.

At home I own both an E6 and an EZ950 in addition to the Pioneer Kuro 5090H, wife, son, and history.
As all content for Home are YCbCr, set all your sources to YCbCr 4:2:2 12bit, set Lumagen YCbCr 4:2:2 input/output and you will be fine. No need to use RGB generation as you already have perfect 4:2:2 patch generation.

Sending all your inputs to YCbCr 4:2:2 is the recommendation of Lumagen also, as internal procesing works at same colorspace.

Hi Ted, Thanks again.
Lumagen I don't use it on E9, I can't find any reason, it already seems very well calibrated as a base, I used it only to evaluate if there was a correspondence with LG's internal TPG .... you never know ....

at the moment I dare not calibrate because the uncertainty of the C6 and Pro2 Colorimeter that I would have used to generate a possible correction matrix (with the lumianance problem of the red on the Colorimeter) do not consider them precise enough to improve what seems already correct.

the uncertainty of measurement I think also for the Pro2 even if both in SDR and HDR the detections on E9 are incredibly low DeltaE.

The situation was different on Lg E6 ...





I use Lumagen Pro where necessary in 4.2.2 mode because it is the advice of Lumagen, I had the doubt about the RGB problem you solved because in a third video chain I use Raspberry as a pattern generator, if I'm not mistaken in remembering, it comes out in RGB, but at the moment I'm not sure, I should go and review the information about it ...

I trust your comments very much, let's be clear that I follow the directions of Lumagen, or Lg, or Panasonic etc ... but I prefer to have the opinion of people with experience unrelated to interests, like you for example.

Thanks to you and the whole group of people from this forum.

There not so great the REC.709 mapping if you measure mid-low end colors, as typical workflows measure high luminance patches only.

Measure 10-Point Luminance or 10-Point Saturation (with 50% Stim or 25% Stim) and you will see a lot of problems.

All these will be improved with a good profiling via internal 3D LUT capability.

Create the 4-color matrix using the wide gamut (uncalibrated TV grayscale @ 100 nits) and run a verification of the meter profile to be sure (select RAW XYZ to your C6 when you will measure). If you see large error to the Red after verification, try the Auto Gamut and re-profile.

The E6 will need your Lumagen and 3D LUT, as it has large problem with gamut mapping of REC.709:



The gamut is expanded at mid-low end. This problem can appear to 2018/2019 models, and typical Saturation sweep can't show that problem.

You have to measure with 10/20-Point Luminance sweep to find out.

But then I become verbose in saying Thanks

I will read everything as a gospel, all very interesting.



To begin with I will perform those checks.

But unfortunately for the correction matrix I did the tests as you indicated a few days ago but I can't improve the Luminance error on red.

I hope with the new LS mode as indicated by Steve if it also works through Pro2.



Some time ago I generated a 3D lut with LightSpace loaded on the Lumagen Pro connected to LG E6 because as you yourself pointed out E6 needed a quite important intervention, in that case the Luminance problem on the Red for the correction matrix I considered it less important because I would have achieved a great general improvement
performing 3D Lut for E6, and indeed the results were evident in positive.

Increasing this setting to 'Low', 'Med', or 'High' increases the peak brightness of small highlights. If ABL bothers you, setting the contrast to '80' and setting Peak Brightness to 'Off' essentially disables ABL, but the peak brightness is quite a bit lower (246-258 cd/m² in all scenes)."

So if I target white to 100-150 nits when calibrate, there´s no ABL and no use for this setting?

Anyone knows what that setting actually do?
It´s not only how ABL limits luminance because it also affects when use low OLED-light values.
It changes gamma but how?
About the Peak Brightness setting see here: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/139-d...l#post58608608

About ABL see here: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/139-d...l#post58376954

For SDR the Peak Brightness setting should be off, when you aim for luminance levels below 300-400 nits.

There no ABL until 150 nits.

Everything above about 150-155 nits will enable the ABL function (when you have 100% APL).

The TV internally analyse the frame APL and change the gamma tracking according to peak output.

There at least 3 diff gamma adjustments the TV will apply.

I will explain another day because It will need a lot of time but to keep stuff short, there one gamma until 150 nits, a different gamma from 150 until near the panel max output, and different gamma for the max output.

So there gamma offset applied according to peak output and APL, when you have a TV calibrated to its higher possible nits in SDR.

When you have it calibrated for up to 150 nits, there no problem and there no gamma change per different frame APL.

I take advantage of the moment to ask more questions.

If I did a Lut 3D on Lg E9 just out of curiosity could I go back and retrieve the same basic parameters?

I ask this because for example on the Near Black E9 seems to have a great operation, I attach two photos of an HD movie Apple TV file, 4gb with a basic problem because the film is mastered with a high black point.

My Panasonic Ez950 (2017) shows obvious problems with Nero (the TV was calibrated only on the two high points with minimal intervention, and little else on CMS Red)
Lg E9 shows a much cleaner image at the time, which is quite evident throughout the film.


The first photo is of LG E9, the second is from Panasonic Ez950.....
I don't want to lose this quality relative to one of the most painful points of the Oled (near black) compared to my old Kuro

Do you have problem with Panasonic when you will use other app or HDMI/USB Input?

If you apply default values to RGB Balance and CMS controls, is the problem still there?

Yes, I have LighTspace and PGenerator

On EZ 950, yes on every HDMI port and also from an internal APP, even at Default, maybe just slightly less accentuated but equally visible and boring.

The photo highlights the problem in particular, from the truth we see these blocks with less contrast, but we see that the image is not clean.

Clearly this occurs with basic and compressed problematic films, in the case of the photo it is the movie The Marshes of Death from Apple TV with 4GB HD file saved on internal hard disk, no streaming.

Even on SkyQ, sometimes these effects are observed, a bit like on LG E6 but slightly less noticeable on EZ950.

What I want to avoid is to include problems of this type on E9 which is highly performing, even if the curiosity to optimize each parameter is alive.

I could always try a Lut on the Radiance connected to an HDMI and see the effects with or without.

You can use the LG Template to manage/upload the LUT's to your LG 2019 TV, see how you can setup/create account there:

https://displaycalibrations.com/lg_t...e_control.html

There you will see what to do before your start any measurement:

https://displaycalibrations.com/lg_2...ightspace.html

(there plan for that page to be finished with full instructions)

About patch generation, after many testing from very experienced LG OLED users of LightSpace, the best patch generation option is to use RGB 16-255 patches for the 3D LUT profiling.

Using RGB 16-255 patches will provide better results than from using YCbCr (16-235) or RGB (16-235).

To realized how amazing is the processing internally to the TV, if you use RGB 16-255 patches for profiling and use YCbCr (16-235) for verification, you get better post verification results than from using YCbCr (16-235) for patch generation and YCbCr (16-235) for verification).

For that reason, as the Lumagen PRO generated (slight non-bit-perfect RGB-Video) but can't generate RGB Video Extended (16-255) patches, you will use PGenerator for patch generation, configuring PGenerator to output 1080p24 RGB-Full and from LightSpace Options use patch scale 16-255. That setting combo will generate bit-perfect 16-255 RGB patch generation.

You will not perform any 1D LUT profiling, for the problems of 1D LUT processing explained here.

You will start by enabling the calibration from LG Template of DeviceControl to upload a UNITY 3D LUT table to the Picture mode you like while you will feed the TV with SDR signal from your HDMI Input, for the TV to understand that you want to upload SDR 3D LUT.

Then you will disable the calibration from LG Template and you will set gamma of LG to 2.2 selection (its the selection which LG processing will not add any gamma offeset) and use Contrast/Brightness patterns to check your near black and for keeping headroom to your above 100% White.

You can see why you need to leave 'headroom' there, with some picture examples of 'out of video legal range values' using 'Mission Impossible - Fallout Blu-Ray' movie as example there.

Next step is to pre-calibrate your 109% White using ideally the SM White balance controls, for example select 'Cool' in SM (which will affect 'Cool' selection of normal menu') set values of RGB-gains to 192.192.192 (which preserve maximum panel dynamic range) and then reduce only 2 color channels to fix your RGB balance while with OLED Light you will adjust to have at the end calibrated 121 nits.

So since you will select from LightSpace 255.255.255 patch for that, which will display 109% White (10% window patches use), if will provide you 100 nits calibrated to your 100% white after the end of the profiling (and 121 nits to 109% Super White).

For meter settings you can use AIO mode with 0.75 integration, intelligent integrator 1, 0.35 stabilization of black frame, 0.5 sec extra delay, as the expect users which have posted to LG 3D LUT with LightSpace thread have used with great results.

Then you perform the 3D LUT profiling, generate a colorspace conversion for REC.709 and then export the DeviceControl 33p Cube file format, to upload with LG Template.

If you have any question, ask there: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/139-d...thread-14.html

What’s the advantage of calibrating with an alternative white point? Are there any articles that explain it? Or is it just a matter of taste? I’m curious and would like to know more on the subject.

It allows our OLEDs to "look" more like a CRT.

I found this very accessible.

What we end up doing is stick with the same CIE1931 colour functions that our equipment/software uses, but use an "offset" to switch everything to the other set of values. This is done by changing the White Point. The video explains the process (which the people with the expensive equipment do), as long as they then tell us the new White Point co-ordinates, everyone else can then use it

Thanks! It alt white point seems more suited for production houses that do color grading rather than your avg enthusiasts, no?
Or am I misinterpreting the application?

That may help.
It is the approach used for professional post & studios OLED calibration, but is equally true for home use, if you have metameric issues.

It can be for production houses, but not always. An example of this is the special white point that's used in the SDR Technicolour mode with "Warm1". It's x=0.3000 y=0.3270, but it's not a perceptual match with a CRT, like the ones you and I used to own and would want to see. It's a perceptual match with Xenon DCI Cinema Projector! So a hollywood studio grading a movie that's going to be delivered to be projected, will find that white point useful. Not so much us lot

The one LG and Dolby arrived at was x=0.308 y=0.313 which I've used in my own most recent attempt, and I really like the look of it.

Vincent teoh mentionned that he prefer the custom tone mapping to the active tone mapping.

Looking at the picture the custom tone mapping is clipping detail in the clould but is perhaps more realistic, the active tone mapping make shadows in dark area over bright.

I really would like your opinions on this?
Its true that instructions are very limited (from official source which support these features) about LG 2019 OLED's Custom Tone-Mapping capabilities, as that feature is out to 2019 models for about 7 months already and because the info about how exactly this capability works is not available looking the official CalMAN Guide: https://kb.portrait.com/help/lg-2019...m-tone-mapping

I spend a lot of my personal time to write without any direct help from LG or CalMAN obviously the most complete guide exist for these features for all LG 2019 users to understand the whole Tone-Mapping concept.

So users with CalMAN 2019 Home for LG (also with other higher license level) or with the Free LG 2019 Template of DeviceControl Interface, they can have full instructions to help them decide what custom settings to upload to the TV.

How to use the LG 2019 PQ Curve / Explanation of HDR10 tone mapping engine parameters / How HDR10 PQ-Curve Tone Mapping works?

Additionally, there explanation of these 2 functions below, as they are affecting tone-mapping also:

What is the 'Peak Brightness' setting and how it’s affecting the LG OLED TV luminance output?

How 'AI Brightness' is working and why it has to be disabled when custom PQ Curves are used?

Bought CalMAN Home for LG and made first autocal calibrations for 77C9.

One with x=.3080 y=.3296 which I used with HCFR manual calibration for 65C8 and other one with x=0.308 y=0.313 which was pretty complicated with HCFR.
Both looks good but maby x=0.308 y=0.313 is little more "natural".

How about calibrating HDR10, dynamic tone mapping on or off while autocal?
