calibrating the epson home cinema 1080 ub

a little while ago warren and i went about doing some measurements and grayscale calibrations on the epson home cinema 1080UB. i never really paid much attention to how accurate the colors were on previous tvs, but with the new projector purchase, i figured it was time to try to maximize the potential of my purchase.

it all starts with kal’s calibration guide. it’s a series of complicated steps to measure the grayscale and calibrate it to the correct levels. that’s all we got through that night, but there’s another series of calibration that you can do to adjust your primary and secondaries.

i’m pretty happy with how the projector is performing. it looks like out of the box, the projector is actually pretty decently calibrated. maybe we’ll do more calibrating later, we’ll see.

  1. so with your hfcr install, I see that you are able to see the measurements/delta Es on your graph. nice.

    i am impressed by how good the epson performs out of the box with minimal tweaking versus my mits where medium temp was more like 9000k (blue!) before calibration.

    if you have time/interest i’m sure the epson 1080ub thread or the calibration section in AVS has some good user feedback on how to get you even closer to D65.

    i was taken aback myself when we demoed transformers since I had not seen it since my own calibration. a huge difference compared to before. I really look forward to seeing transformers on your setup sometime.
