I have the i1DisplayPro and it worked well with my RS3000. There is one glitch - the JVC software provides a screen that gives real-time feedback as to the proper position of the sensor; supposed to move it until it is within the yellow box. I could never get that to work. Even with sensor at screen it showed it too far from the screen. So, I set it to about 4 feet back from the screen.
Anyone with other suggestions for sensor placement for the i1Pro, please let me know. A camera type tripod works well; mount the sensor to it and aim the sensor to about middle of the screen.
I ran REC709, BT220 and HDR calibrations and stored them in User memories. It is recommended to not save the calibrations to the factory curves (THX, HDR, etc,) in case you want to return to those settings.
Another important step during sensor white balance calibration is when you select the i1 in the JVC software as the sensor you have to push the button on the i1Pro immediately. If you don't, the software will never find the sensor. And be sure to use the white balance attachment that came with the i1 to do the sensor calibration.
Iris control has to be set to Manual, not Auto 1 or Auto 2. And make sure you set the desired lamp power for each desired calibration. Also, if you have a HDFury (Vertex, DIVA, etc.) that is connected to the JVC's RS232 port, be sure to disconnect it during calibration. This may not be necessary but the HDFury could force setting changes to the JVC as calibration is being done.
You will be pleased with the amount of time the software saves doing the calibration. Far quicker than doing it manually and I really like the results.
