Proper Method to use Masciola Disc for Projectors with the UB820?
I just moved to the UB820 to use with my RS400. I have Custom Curves on my JVC for HDR, and while they're decent, they're not ideal, and then there is still the disc to disc variation. My thinking is that I could get more consistent results with the UB820.
I have not rigorously compared HDR (using my custom curve) vs SDR-2020 (using Gamma 2.4) output to my Projector, but my initial impressions were that there wasn't an obvious difference, with the edge going perhaps towards HDR.
I am now interested in using the Masciola UHD patterns to tweak my Projector settings for greater accuracy. There are obviously a number of settings that can be chosen within the UB820 that would likely impact these adjustments.
Is there a defined protocol of sorts for how to correctly set up the UB-820 for optimal results with the Masciola Disc?
Which patterns would be used, and which adjustments need to be made - mainly brightness and contrast setting, or others as well?
Any information or links appreciated.
