Question about Samsung QLED Q90R Calibration

Dear all,

I'm a newbie of this forum. I have a very strong color management background about computer and printing industry, but not in AV industry.
One of my friend just bought a new Samsung QLED Q90R 75" TV. We are now both wondering how to calibrate it without spending too much on both extra software and hardware.
My idea is to use ChromaPure Plus Ver. 3.1 which is only $300USD. Compare to the Pro ver. and other Calman's software, seems like this is the most reasonable, relatively.
I know there is HCFR which is free, but after reading some online materials and downloaded it, I don't quite get the process of it. So we are thinking to purchase the ChromaPlus which seems to have a more step by step procedure.

And now, comes to my question about TV Calibration.
In computer world, the relationship between the monitor and the computer is dedicated. Which means if I calibrated the combo, once I change either of the device, I will need to recalibrate it. Does that apply to TV world?
The reason I asked that is, I don't have a pattern generator, nor a Blu-ray pattern disc. The only way to generate the calibration pattern is to use the auto generator that comes from the software.
So, I will need to hook up my computer to the TV.
Let's say I finished the process, and I wanna watch Blu-Ray on it, does my calibration will mismatch with my new source?
So is that mean I can only watch movies with my computer on the calibrated TV???

Looking forward to learn something new!

Thank you
Aaron

Hello, Aaron; welcome to the forum.


Try the Display Calibration thread:

If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.

You may also want to have a look at this ($145 USD).
