OK, the moment you've all been waiting for........
"The HarperVision Experience"
........(cue the fanfare and drumroll!
Put these settings in and drop in The Revenant. The scene at about 1:54:30 (and many others!) is simply jaw dropping!
Remember to tweak things like brightness, contrast, color and tint slightly to optimize for your environment. I used R.Masciola's UHD Test Pattern Suite .MP4. Also remember to check focus and don't do it just from the center. Go to each side and alternate back and forth until it's uniform as much as you can between them. Also check panel alignment. I had to tweak mine a tad. I'm. I'm not going to show my RGB greyscale numbers because each is different and I don't want to mess anyone up using my exact settings. Just use the D65 setting, calibrate it yourself if you have the tools or call in a pro.
The settings in the Panasonic UB900 are all the standard ones on auto, etc. Deep Color is on as Javs pointed out a few posts back, showing the 4:4:4 bit depth.
I know some of these seem a little "extreme", but all settings combined along with an amazing HDR source it just seems to make this projector sing like I've never experienced before on this or any other unit. The depth of the image is so detailed and 3D, it's almost like watching 3D without the glasses, ghosting, crosstalk and brightness loss.
As I've said, HDR is in its infancy, especially with projectors, so these combinations of settings seem to bring out the best to make this projector display HDR with WCG to its fullest capability. Things like using Full mode give you a little extra black to white peak range that seems to help more than it hurts. Contrast Enhancer on High dynamically changes as the APL does and seems to allow it to follow what the scene is trying to do, which in HDR with a limited brightness (nit) display seems to really help as well, like really good ANSI of a DLP or something. You can try it on medium. I had it that way for awhile too. It also really helps with the depth of the image, I've noticed. Reality Creation also helps with this.
Ive noticed some of these create small anomalies and artifacts when you're up to the screen, as expected, but as soon as you're back at your seat watching, they all seem to meld together in perfect harmony without making the picture look fake or artificial. I've said it before, I think the smaller pixel size and fill of 4K really helps hide the things that would be more obvious in 480p, 720p and 1080i/p. I think we have to look at new ways of doing this now with 4K UHD HDR WCG on projectors for the foreseeable future.
This is going to be a bright, punchy, colorful, detailed and sharp picture, so maybe not for everyone, especially the true purists that can't deviate due to OCD or something or just personal preference. I know, I've been there, but for the others I think you'll really enjoy what you're about to experience.
In the end, it's not 100% "by the book", but it's gonna make the pictures in that book look absolutely stunning! This thing looks like a giant 138" 2.35:1 scope HDR flat panel almost, maybe better in some ways......Enjoy!
