Just got a new TV (upgraded in a sense from a Panasonic 55" Plasma (st60)) and I have been searching for days for which settings to use to get the best picture for my Philips 70PUS7304 but haven't found anything, probably since it's a tad too fresh.
I have gotten it pretty close to the picture of a professionally calibrated Samsung Q60R (the Philips is a lot sharper though).

Anyway, tl;dr:
Anyone sitting on some juicy calibration-info? 馃檪
(note: I've tried the settings ppl posted for the 7303 but they looked like pure garbage on the 7304).

I can share my current, it looks quite close to the professionally calibrated Samsung Q60R 75" that I brought home for a short while to compare (parts of this is also posted on the avforums):


Picture Mode: Movie
Colour: 60
Contrast: 80
Sharpness: 2
Brightness: 40
Colour enhancement: Off
Colour temperature: Warm
White point alignment, 2 point: Red - WP: 127, Green - WP:90, Blue - WP: 67
Contrast mode: Off
HDR Upscaling: Off
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Video Contrast: 90
Light sensor: Off
Gamma: +2
Ultra resolution: Off
Noise reduction: Off
MPEG artefact reduction: Off
Motion styles: Off
I bought the 70PUS7304 1 week ago.
At first, I was very impressed with how sharp the tv is. I usually watch mostly 1080p-material since I came from a Panasonic 55" Plasma (st60) and this tv is amazing! The blackness i really black and the picture is really good.


One thing I am not a fan of is the viewing angle, if I move 1m to left or right (the corners of my couch) the colors change somewhat and it gets a tad brigher, not deep blacks.
Its not a big issue though, since I think I麓ve gotten the calibration somewhat right.
I downloaded some test patterns and such and tried to to my best, after a while I change some things and now it looks nice.
I had no idea if I was doing it right or not, after a few days I went back to the store and picked up a Samsung 75" Q60R which was professionally calibrated and 2 things struck me when I did some comparing to the 7304:


1.) The Samsung is not even close to as sharp as the 7304, even my gf and her mother noticed it, even pointed it out, like it was blurry. With the 7304 we often just say in unison "god damn that is sharp".
2.) My own "calibration" was very close to how the professional calibration of the Samsung was.
I tweaked some more and I am now very happy with the Philips.
I returned the Samsung.


The brightness is not a problem for me, 4k material on Netflix looks nice (dont have any other 4k or HDR accessable atm) but compared to the Panasonic-plasma we can now watch movies during daytime without covering the windows, massive improvement!


My settings are now:
Picture Mode: Movie
Colour: 60
Contrast: 80
Sharpness: 2
Brightness: 40
Colour enhancement: Off
Colour temperature: Warm
White point alignment, 2 point: Red - WP: 127, Green - WP:90, Blue - WP: 67
Contrast mode: Off
HDR Upscaling: Off
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Video Contrast: 90
Light sensor: Off
Gamma: +2
Ultra resolution: Off
Noise reduction: Off
MPEG artefact reduction: Off
Motion styles: Off


I did use ISF Night a while, but Movie looks good so far, I'll adjust it or go to ISF Night if I feel something needs to be changed from Movie-mode that isn't available.

Hello,

I have this TV and i think i've found the perfect calibration for SDR, but i have some problem with HDR visualization: in fact colors appear really desaturated if i use the same settings in HDR and the only way to make it looks at least brighter and colorful like SDR is to use post processing effects (hdr plus, colors optimization) and to boost color up to 75.
I don't know if it's normal (shouldn't HDR be more colorful than SDR?), is the same happening to you?


By the way, these are my settings:

General Settings:
Color: 50 (you can put it up at a max value of 54 if you like more saturated colors, but don't go past that point or you'll start lose details)
Contrast: 70 (40 at night)
Sharpness: 0 or 1
Brightness: 54

Color Options:
Color Optimization: Off
Color Temperature: Normal

Contrast Options:
Contrast Mode: Off
Hdr - Upscaling: Off (it only makes the screen brighter and mess with contrast)
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Video Contrast: 98
Light Sensor: Off
Gamma: 0

Sharpness Options:
Ultra Resolution: Off

Images Optomization Options:
Reduce Noise: Off
Reduce MPEG Artefact: Off

Hello,
I own a 55pus7304 and tried out various settings from various forums (including the ones above).
I know the 70鈥 has a VA panel while the 55鈥 has an IPS so perhaps that's the reason but......
I'm about to return my 55鈥 and go for a 70鈥 not only for a matter of size, but also I had constent problems with skintones on the 55鈥.
Besides the various 鈥渃olor enhanced鈥 mode that sort of fix the problem, all the settings I tried that were supposed to be 鈥渁ccurate鈥 gave weird colors in the shadows of the skins, turning to a nasty green-greys, making everyone look sick鈥..
Hope the 70鈥 VA panel will perform better鈥.. Any clue ?

What is your settings on Dolby Vision on 70pus7304? Settings is very different from Hdr on my tv, dolby vision has most things set to 50%.

Which blue ray disks would work to calibrate a 4k tv?
With a standard blu-ray player and disc, you can only do SDR (1080p and below). For 4K and HDR, you really need a UHD blu-ray player and HDR test discs like Ryan Masciola's.

You may want to check out the thread on the Spears and Munsil UHD disc here in this forum. Although it CAN be used for calibration, the majority of patterns are intended for in-depth evaluation of displays, such as a professional reviewer would do. And if you don't have a meter and proper software, you can't really calibrate HDR with only a disc. Contrast and brightness in HDR are not set with clipping patterns as they are with SDR, but by measurement, as they have to meet an absolute standard in ST2084, not a suggested one like in SDR.

For SDR, yes. But you'd use the same disc that you've been using. Firing up the S&M disc would put your TV into HDR mode, and that uses different settings from SDR.

Sure. Or Digital Video Essentials (DVE) "HD Basics", which may be scarce now. If you have a DVD or Blu-Ray burner, the AVS-HD709 can be downloaded free from this site and burned to a disc. You can also go to Ted Aspiotis' site (displaycalibrations.com) and order his disc. Many feel it's the best SDR calibration disc out there.
