Calibration

To get the best color accuracy, we recommend making the changes below. There are several user modes. The Bright mode boosts the brightness, but at great cost to the color performance. To give any of the modes an extra boost, to the Lamp settings in the menu and select "Bright." We're aware of the confusion with having a "Bright" user mode along with a completely separate and unrelated "Bright" lamp mode. Apparently, Optoma was not.

Video Modes

There are five modes. All five have various presets, but you can edit any of them.
