Although the spec mentioned that the lamp has 2 modes, standard or boost mode. But I can't find anywhere in the manual mentions these modes.I'm not sure what is IRIS. I don't see any mentioning of IRIS in the manual.
Dan, have you calibrated the PJ? Might be surprised with the results. Also what screen and what gain is urs? Maybe can get a grey screen with low gain to give u nice blacks and reduce the overall glare. Other than that you might need ur cataracts done *joke*
Not calibrated and I find the colour out of the box is good as compared to my previous pj. I had tried to learn on how to calibrate a pj but cannot grasp the understanding of it using a DVE calibration disc. Screen is 85" 1.3 gain matt white. I understand a grey screen would reduce the brightness and increase the black level. But not sure by how much.
A greyscreen in your case won't help to bring down the brightness level except to enhance the black levels. A gain of 1.3 is common for most Matte White screen...a properly calibrated projector will usually reduce the output by a fair margin.I think you should get the ND2 filter if you dun intend to do any calibration. Even if you perform the basic DVE calibration...chances are it may still be too 'bright' for you...as you need to play with the bias and gains of the RGB spectrum.
You can borrow my calibration disc- dead easy to use (and hence v crude) but it will get you in the ballpark to give you an idea.
Think it's spears and M. You have the DVE? Wouldn't mind trying it out.
Which calibration disc is that? Hope it's user's friendlier than DVE.
There only a few calibration disc available ( bluray type ) , Spear & Munsil , Disney wow , THX in Teminator 2 Sky net edition all this using a blue filter only .DVE is in bluray and it comes with 3 colour filter RED , GREEN & BLUE . The basic calibration needs only five steps :A) Brightness B) ContrastC) Colour D) TintE) SharpnessThe older DVE , Avia I , Avia II , Monster are in DVD which are not ideal for bluray calibration .I have all the disc and found that the DVE bluray version is the most easy to use .Hope that helps
