Epson Home Cinema 2030 Projector Review

Epson Home Cinema 2030 Post Calibration Grayscale: User Mode

Color temp over IRE range (post calibration) Natural Mode:
20 IRE 6608
30 IRE 6429
40 IRE 6589
50 IRE 6636
60 IRE 6564
70 IRE 6601
80 IRE 6508
90 IRE 6404
100 IRE 6481

Calibrated color temps, 20 – 100 IRE:

Average gamma = 1.62

Gamma proved to be low, which means mid brightness areas are a bit brighter than with a higher gamma.  Definitely too low by movie in the dark standards, but a good gamma for cutting through ambient light.

To try these, open the menus, and from the Image menu, select Cinema mode.  Then go down to Advanced. Open it, then select RGB.  Place these number in, replacing the defaults.  The improvements should be pretty obvious.  We recommend you then save your settings under User 1.                                        Mike will provide his calibration notes shortly.

Look for the calibration information for the individual primary and secondary colors in our subscriber area.
