I have found several threads on this but none that tell me in plain english if this will calibrate plasma displays in CRT mode to a reasonable levels. I found lots of metrics but was unable to translate what that meant in terms of viewing experience. When I contacted x-rite asking them if I should use the CRT setting for Plasmas I was told "The i1DisplayLT doesn't support Plasma Displays."


Whats the deal with the X-Rite i1Display 2 that i just bought.. Will it assist me in calibrating my Samsung PN50C8000?

yes, just use colorhcfr, calman, or chromapure with plasma mode selected


x-rite was only referring to the eye-one match software that generates PC profiles (ICC)

Thanks for your reply and I apologize in advance for any duplicate post on this.


Which software do you recommend for a intermediate user? I like the idea of the eye-one match software where it just shows a pattern and allows you to make the adjustments. The others do that as well?

Sounds like you were right, thanks so much.


I am working at achieve D65 adjusting RGB low and and high end right now. I was able to get a base contrast and brightness setting. The the HCFR software is pretty easy to use. Thanks for the link; its very easy to follow and learn from..


Thanks once again!

Ok so I ran through the Calibrations with my X-Rite Display and Somthing is not right.


The picture seems washed with a green hue.. Here are the settings:


Stanard

Cell Light 12

Contrast 66

Brightness 60


R-Offset 34

G-Offset 38

B-Offset 36


R-Gain 27

G-Gain 19

B-Gain 0


In order to get 100% of all colors at 80 IRE i had to dial down blue all the way in the white balance settings.


I managed to get close to D65 except at 0 and 10 IRE where i was more like 8000 and 7000 K respectivley.


I did make one mistake of messing with Green and not sticking to just blue and red for the calibration. I eventually figured out why the document said to do only two colors



Is there somthing wrong with the meter? Is that possilbe can they be "miss-calibrated"

Try again and use movie mode/warm2 leaving the green offset and gain at the defaults.
