I'm considering buy the Smart iii calibration package for my Z2. However since half the DVDs I watch is PAL i'm wondering if it's possible to use DVE with this package or is AVIA the only DVD possible to use for calibration with this package. I have both NTSC and PAL DVE disks, and it's not possible to get AVIA in PAL.


I assume one would try to calibrate to D65 in both PAL and NTSC since this is the temperature movies are meant to be seen in.

DVE will work fine for Smart III!


The test screens or frames you need is the stepped IRE in 10 IRE steps from 0 to 100. Not the stepped pattern all on one screen but the one where each frame is a square IRE level in the middle of the screen. It should only be displayed in the middle of the screen and take up about half the screen area.


Even the older Video Essentials has these test frames. These test frames is how any display is calibrated for color temp so all test DVD's should have them.


Cheers,


Ron
