I'm seeking some assistance with getting my JVC 570 settings set properly to play 4k hdr blu-rays. I'll likely hire Chadb for a professional calibration later in the year, but for now, I want to get things set up the best I can until then.
I've been reading through the forums, and while I've found a lot of good picture and gamma suggestions, I don't think a lot of them take into account Panasonic's optimum hdr optimizer feature
. I'm trying to understand how to set up the JVC with having that feature in mind.
Gear I have:
Spyder 5 Express
I'm pretty confident I have my Panasonic 420 settings correct. It's the JVC settings I'm having issues with.
Panasonic 420 settings:
HDR/ color gambut output: SDR/BT 2020
HDR optimizer: On, use slider to brighten/darken imovies.
What mode should I use? Natural, cinema, hdr? Keep in mind, I do have an HD Fury.
If i use hdr, does this automatically disable the dynamic iris?
Color profile: BT.2020, standard? Assuming I should use bt.2020.
Here's where I'm the most confused. Since I have the Panasonic 420, should I use one of the default gamma settings listed below or should I still be using custom curves such as the JAVS 3? Should I use the spyder express for a custom curve?
Gamma settings in the JVC: normal, HDR(hybrid log), hdr(st.2084), custom 1/2/3?
If I use custom, should I use the 2.2/2.4 setting? Should i use HDR (hybrid log) or HDR (st. 2084)?
For any of these gamma settings, should I be using the picture tone, dark level, and bright level recommendations for hdr from JVC's website? (https://www3.jvckenwood.com/english/...rs400_uhd.html
Long post, but it really comes down to needing help understanding what I should choose for the picture setting and gamma settings for the JVC.
Really appreciate if someone can help steer me in the right direction! Thanks!
