The Radiance does a great job with 2020->709 conversion.
Really? Radiance Pro doesn't tone map before the video goes to the projector? Are you saying when HDR flag is off, radiance pro just passes the signal to the projector to tonemap? is there such a thing as leaving it on, and the radiance pro tone maps, then the projector takes that picture and does "another tone map" to it ? sorry still trying to figure things out.
I notice the nit settings makes a big difference. What should that be at? i'm seeing a good pic at 500-700. But sometimes, not all, whites are a bit too blown out (mostly on some netflix reality show, not on movies or edited shows on netflix)
As for "limited to 709 for gamut coverage" where do you see that? I couldn't find it in the specs or manual? Manual says "Color Gamut refers to the range of colors that can potentially be displayed by a device. There are some standards to define difference levels of color gamuts for
display devices, such as CIE 1976, sRGB, Adobe RGB, NTSC, etc.
With this projector, selecting Auto will automatically apply the most suitable color
gamut to the image source. You can also select BT. 709, BT. 2020, or DCI-P3
according to your needs."
I take this as it displays BT.2020?
