A gamma that is too high like mine means that our overal brightness will be better and we’ll have deeper blacks, but at the expense of losing details in the darker scenes. You can load up the graphs for your own projector by selecting them one at a time in the “Graphs” menu and follow along. The good news is I know I can trust my results by using the best meter and free software for the job. Don’t ask the sales person on the show room floor how accurate the primaries are however – you’ll only get a blank stare in return. In fact, as you’ve probably noticed, everything affects everything!

This needs to be fixed by adjusting the gamma control within the display or by adding a a gamma boost box to the signal as most displays do not have an internal gamma adjustment option. We can’t go into any more details here as these extra features are hcfg display specific. Does anybody know if the newest version of HCFR v 1.

The RGB levels graph shows two difference things: What are the secondary points? Again, we only adjust red and blue.

The more advanced processors will also allow you to alter secondaries. Let’s zoom in a bit and super-impose the “before” and “after” results onto the same graph to make the differences easier to see: So now that we have an idea how bad our greyscale actually is, let’s see if we can fix it! This gave me the following screen note the Sensor box and then I just followed incogrect curtpalme Dummies guide.


What are primaries and secondaries? In the case of our Barco projector, little can be done to adjust primaries or secondaries.

Additional hints and tips to achieving more accurate primaries Below are some additional incorretc and tips that you may use to physically alter your display for more accurate primaries and secondaries. As mentioned previously, setting contrast too low will result in a dim picture.

Do Not Repeat My Mistakes Calibrating Your Home Theater Projector

Well actually I hcvr interested in calibration because of my interest in photo editing. The Eye-One probe attaches in a similar manner to the Spyder2 probe. Keep in mind that CMS adjustments are indeed for advanced users only. Turning up the gamma boost reduces the gamma number.

Okay, but I read some posts where people seem to have made Spyder work with this software Some images are incrorect and need final passes for prettying up. Ok, so the numbers are off and the image looks pretty off bad at the default K setting, but what does all this data mean?


Unfortunately it’s not always that simple. Adjusting Greyscale Ok, now for the ‘meat’ of this guide: That’s it for sensor orientation if you’re using a direct-view display – Ignore the rest of Part 1 and skip over to Part 2!

Hence the name “CIE “. Do this slowly and systematically one axis at a time while you wait for the data to update. Simply use masking tape or something similar to hold it to the tripod such that the little suction cups on the underside of the probe face the screen. I’m here to explain it to you. If anyone wants to know my recommendation it has always been the use psyder L-gamma if available in the software in the two above this is an option but has to be selected as it is not a default setting.


What you need to understand is that many points on the CIE diagram actually add up to a colour temperature of K, but only one is correct: Just a few of the simple mistakes that can throw off an otherwise good calibration session… Cheers, Docrings I thought the 1. So I’ve got my i1 Display Pro retail incorrrect now the patterns.

Let’s run through them one at a time using my Barco Cine 8 Onyx CRT projector data and see what the graphs look like, what they mean, and where they should actually be.

The Ultimate Screen Calibration Guide

These are the magical numbers we will be trying to achieve by taking measurements with our meter. As odd as it may sound, you do not require a Blu-ray burner to create a Blu-ray disc: We will be explaining what primaries and secondaries are, how to measure them, and on some displays how to adjust them.

While this sort of problem can also occur with green or blue, it’s far less likely to happen on digital displays.
