JVC DLA-RS60 Projector Review

JVC DLA-RS60 Projector Calibration and Settings

Mike performed his usual measurements and calibration, and for once we were truly surprised – by the brightness. Here’s what we measured, and what Mike did to optimize the picture:

Pre-calibration

Film

Cinema

Animation

Natural

Stage

THX

Contrast = (0) 14  14  14  14  14 14  14
Brightness = (0) -5 -5 -5 -5 -5 -5 -5
Color Sat. = (0)
Tint = (0)
Color Temp (Xenon1) (Xenon2) -8000 -6500 -7500 -8500 -6500
Gamma (Film 1) (A) (C) (Normal) (D0 B(3D) (Normal)
Color Profile (Film 1) (Cinema 1) Anime 1) (Video) (Stage) (3D) (THX)

Mike notes: Both User modes have same default and adjusted settings as THX mode with the exception of the Color Profile, which is Standard for User 1 & 2

Lamp Mode=High (unless noted otherwise)
Lens aperture fully open
All other settings at default (untouched)

What’s most interesting is not the actual results themselves, but that the settings required relatively coarse adjustments, in terms of the numbers, compared to previous models. On the other hand, the projector starts out looking really good, so perhaps it’s just that they’ve given us finer tuning by magnifying the working range for a small change.

Calibration settings for User 1:
Gamma on Normal, Color on -13
