Thanks jkoz,


So you set your color by blue filter? do you trust this method over the Calman software?

Personally, I think the filter works fine and have never tried to use HCFR or Calman to set color. I'm not an expert calibrator by any means though - just a novice who loves to tinker.

I can vouch for this as well.


I had been doing my calibrations with my i1Display Pro using ColorHCFR. I set up everything correctly, even the little advanced check boxes and so on, but I'd still detect the calibration was a little more red than I thought it should be.


I went ahead and purchased CalMAN Basic and started doing calibrations with it. I did both my Asus PA246Q monitor and Sony KDL60EX645. The red push I was getting with ColorHCFR was gone.


So, I agree that there is definitely something up with ColorHCFR and the i1Display Pro's calibration.


I noted this in another thread here: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1444311/official-sony-kdl60ex645-thread/60#post_22852255

Really?


Sadly JohAd is disappeard so there´s no hope that it will be fixed.


Is CalMAN Basic enough, so it does same thing than HCFR or do I need control version?

Does it work with retail version of i1 Display Pro or do I need to give serial of meter or something to get it working?

I use CalMAN Basic with the retail i1 Display Pro, works just fine. No need to give serial or anything.


It does pretty much the same thing as HCFR, even has a built-in pattern generator too.


If you're looking for more "numerical" values during your calibration, try the Quick Analysis workflow (helps tons because you can see your gamma curve here too, then you can use the HT Basic calibration for your grayscale) once you get it.


Make sure you set the correct display type when using CalMAN and you'll be off!

Personally, I don't think profiling the i1D3 against another meter should be necessary. It's a very accurate meter by itself, as proven by the links posted above.


The reason that calibrations appear too red without profiling the i1D3 (or without adding an adjustment matrix) is because HCFR and/or the Argyll drivers are doing something incorrectly. I say this with confidence, as I've compared a simple greyscale calibration side-by-side with HCFR and Calman using 2 different color temp presets in the service menu of my Panasonic (picture mode and everything else was equal) and the Calman calibration was visibly better. Skin tones were less red and looked more realistic with the Calman calibration as I flipped back and forth. Not night and day better, but definitely noticeable by eye.


It's not profiling that we need - it's different software.


My $.02

I have a D3 PRO with Chroma Pure and I can say that applying the adjustment matrix that was done for me here gives perfect, if not even better at the low end of the grayscale w/ HCFR. W/O the matrix, I thought it was lacking red but I'd have to check. OTOH, Calman does not come as close and I still haven't been able to profile my CP settings with CM. Gives worse results than just picking Plasma alone.


I was pleantly surprised when I did a back to back CP and HCFR run today and HCFR was perfect.

You don´t need to do that because you have matrix correction (correction for plasma display type is included in that matrix...thx zoyd
).

Just choose "Display Type : i1D3 Refresh display"

Leave "Spectral sample" empty/none

Load your matrix "Advanced-->XYZ coordinates adjustment matrix-->manually edit XYZ conversion matrix-->Load" and ready to go.

(Sync i1D3 with your TV at IRE30 window by pressing calibrate from sensor configure.)

However if you have not ever used command prompt it´s like this:

cd..

cd..

cd program files (x86)

cd hcfr calibration

cd tools

i1d3ccss

Oh, thanks


There is two different matrixes for i1D3 created with Panasonic plasma against i1Pro meter.

Gonna try those.



Here are all those six matrix correction .mhc files for i1 Display Pro(3) with plasma TV which I found:
Matrix for i1DPro(3) or CM Display with plasma.zip 2k .zip file


Made calibration with "Panasonic plasma 1 matrix for i1D3 against i1Pro from Argyll database.mhc" matrix and finally I´m happy to results

Panasonic TX-P55ST50Y calibration.zip 28k .zip file

Some more calibrations when I´ll get new panel under warranty because of burn-in.

Interesting to see how new panel affects to settings.

However that goes till February because Panasonic couldn´t deliver that quicker to Finland and I´ll do some running in before calibration.

Is there a way to open these mhc files to add the correction tables to CalMAN?

Me too! I have tried the new Calman Matrix tool but my results are way off so far. I'm still trying to get my D3 offsets into Calman.

Calman uses the blue filter

This is only true if the display does not have CMS capability.

the matrix correction used in HCFR is different than that used in either CalMAN or CP, HCFR corrects for Y luminance offset between the reference and target meters. So if you use the matrix values generated by HCFR in the other two programs (or vice versa) then will not yield the same measurements.

Wish I knew that 2 hours ago! Entered them in Calman plasma and crt mode and no go, way off! Oh well

zoyd,


What is your experience about HCFR 3.x.x, does it measure something wrong, especially red?


Those who paid for matrix delivered with meter, I suppose it´s not created with HCFR



(Like I wrote, I copied that matrix from Argyll database and with that it seems to be very nice, no redish white balance. So I think not gonna pay 150$ for CalMan. Things may be different if I had paid for matrix and white balance looks redish because of [email protected] measure faults)


btw, Got my 55ST50 set back with new panel week ago (changed under warranty because of burn-in), I´ll drive 200h break-in slides and recalibrating. If someone is interested to see how different panel affects to settings I can post new measurements day after tomorrow.

where is your matrix you choose to calibrate your ST50 ?

I wrote that earlier and it´s quoted few posts back, it´s named "Panasonic plasma 1 matrix for i1D3 against i1Pro from Argyll database.mhc".

So, was anyone else besides John working on this project? Does anyone know what happened to John? He was doing awesome things with HCFR, and he also has a really cool program called Upsilon Mixer that he was working on, but the last post I can find from him here or on the Upsilon forum is from september. He obviously hasn't been to the Upsilon website, because the forum has been overrun with spammers for months. I hope that he is ok.

I made a change in the D3 meter code that has stabilized it quite a bit. Simply setting the baseline integration time to a larger value (1.5 sec which is the default for CM for low light conditions) did the trick. I don't know anything about git and merging in new code etc. so here is a standalone package with the change.




edit:


Made a proper installation package:

HCFRsetup.exe
