Enclosed are my calibration settings based on Greyscale adjustment using Color HCFR and an Eye-One Display LT. I have not done any primary or secondary color checkings. Note, absolutely no other modifications to color settings (like saturation, tint, skin tone, etc.,) have been made from when the projector arrived since my still evolving understanding is that the better way to adjust for a pj that has independent "offset" and "gain" adjustments for R, G, B, and also the ability to adjust primaries, is to do it in those menus, which I have recently purchased an Eye-One Display LT to do so... Measurements taken from the screen, a 1.16 gain SMX / Sheerweave 4500 Acoustic Transparent screen. I have just added my ColorHCFR output files. The filenames for these files match up with the excel listing of my adjustments. Basicly, I took before and after file saves from Color HCFR for Living Room, Natural, and TB1 in high lamp mode, and for TB1 in low lamp mode as well. In the future I might use Living Room in low lamp mode also and give that a whirl. Right now, I watch movies in TB1 low lamp or inceasingly, in TB High lamp. When I am just in and out of the room and watching sports or bcast tv I might run in Natural High. When I want to have some modest ambient light on for a party, or my adjacent LCD for a second ball game, I run in Living Room High. The irony is that when I am in Living Room high it is so darn bright in my confined room (tan floor and light tan cove ceiling...dark bronze side walls all the around) of 15' x 18' that I don't need ambient light
To see my room, look at the first two pics of this link http://www.seymourav.com/installsfixed.asp
Room is completely light controlled (powered retractable skylight, etc.) and can be a bat cave, other than the lighter carpet color and higher cove ceiling color than what a bat cave purist would want. hence, i think at a certain level of brightness I start getting enough reflection from the PJ on the carpet and the upper cove ceiling that I have nearly reached my point of diminishing returns on contrast benefits...
Would be fun for someone who has AVS do their calibration to share their results.
All measurements taken with Auto-Iris "On"
delta E on Living Room prior to calibration ran 23 +/-1 from IRE 30-90. delta E on Living Room after calibration ran 1.8-2.5 from IRE 30-70 and 4.0 at 80.
delta E in TB1 Low Lamp prior to calibration ran 0.7 to 6.4 from IRE 20-100 (which is quite good and challenges the need to calibrate given the bulb will change in the first 60 hours). After calibration my settings yield 0.4 to 2.7 from IRE 30-80 and up to 4.8 if you add IRE 20 and 90, and 5.4 at IRE 100
delta E in TB1 High Lamp (now my favorite viewing mode for movies) prior to calibration ran 7.0-8.6 from IRE 30 - 100, and 11.3 at IRE 20. After calibration it was 0.9 - 2.4 from IRE 30-100 and 5.4 at IRE 20.
