Epson Home Cinema 2030 Post Calibration Grayscale: User Mode

Color temp over IRE range (post calibration) Natural Mode:
20 IRE6608
30 IRE6429
40 IRE6589
50 IRE6636
60 IRE6564
70 IRE6601
80 IRE6508
90 IRE6404
100 IRE6481

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.

    Mentioning that you would save the Reilly’s under user1 is slightly worrying given that this PJ doesn’t have a save feature it makes one question copying your given settings…


      checking into that. May have been “habit” Virtually all Epson’s have a Save area with a User 1. Mike calibrates, I just watch and analyze the picture, so when I’m writing up reviews, somethings I do stupid things, like getting into a rut, and “assuming” With Epsons that have a full user savable area (10 positions on most), you don’t have to save them, to one of those, but if you leave the settings only in say a Theatre mode, then if you are tweaking and changing some of those settings, you have to remember what the old ones are. So, Sorry About That!.

      More importantly, the settings provided would be Mike’s and would be correct. -ART
