Autocal is good but most say it is 90% of a real calibration. I would say there are 3 paths (Best, Better, Good), do each every 300-1000 hours on a bulb based projector.Thanks, Does the EF-2000 and Autocal get the color to 95 percent calibrated or is it necessary to still have to learn Calman etc?
1. Pay a pro and get the best perfomrance out of the setup
2. Learn all the software a pro might use and get the right insturments. Spend a bunch of time and money to learn "display calibration". You willl never have the experince of the pro so you will learn as you go.
3. Accept autocal as "good enough" (I fall into this camp).
This is all about chasing the "Best" a given projector can be. Autocal is a nice feature that JVC has in my book.
