Calibration

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.

We disabled the BrightColor feature that this projector offers for our calibrated settings: it has been our experience that this can often cause serious color inaccuracies, especially with skin tones and brighter colors. This feature can work well with presentations and other content that includes flat colors, though.
