Calibration

Projectors are designed to be used in a variety of situations, and there is no single group of settings that will work for all. So, we create a set of calibrated settings for one purpose: watching movies. In calibrating this way, our aim is to find the best balance of screen brightness and color accuracy for watching movies and TV in a dark setting. We started with the preset Cinema mode, and found that we only needed a few minor tweaks to get the best quality from the projector. In particular, we changed the gamma to the Natural setting and set the color temperature to 6500 degrees kelvin. The LV-8310 is unusual in offering a number of direct numerized settings for color temperature, rather than the usual warm, cool and standard settings.

Video Modes

The LC-8310 offers a small selection of video modes. There are no user presets, but you can go into any of the presets and tweak the detailed settings, such as gamma, brightness, contrast, color temperature, etc. These changes are saved when the projector is powered off.
