(My procedure I used to cal my E8)
LG OLED Calibration using LightSpace and CalMAN
Be sure to select the the Display Mode you wish to calibrate. Click the DDC button. Scroll to the 3D LUT Controls.
Press the Reset 3D LUT button!
(Do not ever use AutoCal as It will disable some of your tv controls!)
Using LG service remote:
Disable auto screen dimming (ASBL)
In Start, pswrd: 0413 or 0000, 13-OLED, TPC=OFF
In LS Cal Tool Options:
These are your "goto" default settings (only for those who are using the X-Rite i1 Display Pro).
• Integration Time: 0.75
• AIO mode
• Extra Delay: 0.75
• Generic CMF (Raw XYZ in CalMAN)
• Intelligent Interpolation: 1 nit
• Stabilization: 0.75 sec with 28.28.28 custom color patch.
On the LG:
All TV processing off!
Set gamut wide, gamma 2.2, contrast 100, brightness 50, color 50. Use the LightSpace Calibration interface to display a 100% white patch, and use the LG 2 point High RGB sliders to fix RGB balance errors by reducing only values of RGB high sliders on tv, not all sliders, keep one slider at zero, and reduce bthe other two.
Use RGB High to fix RGB Balance, not to control luminance, you will adjust OLED light to get 100 nits (or whatever target you prefer).
Next step is to take a pre-calibration Quick Profile of Primary Only, to see that all is well. We want to verify that most of the primaries are outside of the Rec709 gamut, rgb separation is good, etc.
Use 10% Windows with black background.
On the LG:
The gamma 2.2 setting is the TV bypass setting for the 3D LUT to work, nothing to do with what gamma you will ask from LightSpace to generate a correction, which mainly will be 2.4 gamma (the Rec709 selection)
Measure. Check results.
Go to the Display Characterization window. To create a pre-roll file, select anisometric, 10 points and then click to export as color list, it will export a .cvs file. This need only be done the first time around.
While in the display characterization screen, go to Options and select this file as pre-roll, 1 sec, so LS will display these 1000 patches initially (without taking measurements) for panel to stabilize... and then it will start the profiling.
For profiling you will use 17 point cube, anisometric with drift 100.
Check TV Contrast is still 100
I leave it to you to verify your measurements however you wish.
Convert Colour Space
Open the Covert Colour Space tool. In Source, select the Color Space (usually Rec709). In Destination, select your 17p measurement file. Leave Enable Drift Comp checked. Type in a name for this measurement. Select Peak Chroma. Create New. Close.
Export LG LUT FILE
Under File, select Export. Check LG (*.3dl). Enter the name of the file to create and the export to desired location.
Next, using a text editor, you will need to delete the 'space' at the end of the .3dl file header. It should be at the end of line 5. If not, you will recieve an error when trying to upload to LG. Save.
Upload .3DL File to LG OLED TV
From Calman, go back to the 3D LUT Controls menu and click the Load LUT File button. Find your .3dl file and enter.
