Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 705HD
Compact & bright projector that produces a lot of light, but lackluster color performance.
There is no one video mode or group of settings that is good for all of the situations that a video projector can be used in. So, we pick one: watching movies in a darkened room. The settings below are our recommended starting points for this, and the settings that we use in our color tests. Feel free to use these as a starting point for your own personal calibration, but remember that the best calibration is the one that produces the best image quality for your own situation.
Our calibrated settings for movie watching involved some tweaks to reduce the brightness and increase the contrast of the projector, as well as disabling the auto iris. We found that these settings produced the best balance of color accuracy and screen brightness: pushing the contrast in particular any further caused a lot of peaking, where highlight details get lost.
The 705HD includes a range of preset video modes.
