Anyone use Digital Video Essentials (DVE) to calibrate?

I have the DVD and the color filters that came with it. I remember buying it years ago to calibrate my Panasonic Plasma but never got around to using it (had my plasma professionaly done) and forgot about it until I went through my disc collection.

Anyway, I'm waiting for my Sony A8G to show up and was wondering if any members have use DVE and have any suggestion etc. on using it. I want to try to calibrate this new panel myself this time. I don't need videofile perfection but do want to get a little more out of this new panel than just factory stock or messing with the setting without getting a good cal on it.


Thanks in advanced

Hi, if you have the DVE Blu-Ray then you can use it as it will be REC.709 and for SDR adjustments it will be fine.

Any color filter glasses are not working anymore, see: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/139-d...l#post57490620

If you want to improve more your calibration, you will have to invest to meter (like i1Display PRO) and use some free calibration available, like HCFR or LightSpace ZRO.

The DVE disk don't have patterns to measure your color gamut (not a single one), it has for 21-Point grayscale only.

Also the pattern size is 18% Windows, this size will not ideal for OLED as it will increase the panel temperature (compared to smaller sizes) so you can have repeatability issues after sometime.

For that reason 10% Windows is better idea to use.

If you have older version of DVE DVD, its not ideal to use, as its will be 576i50 (PAL, REC.601) or 576i60 (NTSC) and your blu-ray player will have to upscale to 1080p and convert the colorspace to REC.709, not all players can do this job correctly and you can have mismatch to your adjustments also.

If your source player is DVD and you want to calibrate for that DVD only, then it will be fine.

But for HD SDR, find another calibration disk.

Of course, you will need a 4K BD player or equivalent source device.
