LG AF115 Projector Calibration and Settings
We normally calibrate each home theater that is reviewed. We perform contrast, brightness, saturation and other image adjustments, as well as a grayscale balance. A complete professional calibration can go even further, but the settings we provide generally offer a anywhere from a slight to dramatic improvement, compared to the "out of the box settings".
In this case, though, with a projector that's pre-production, and without knowing pricing, or even if it will be sold in the US, our usual calibration was not done on the AF115. We settled for some quick brightness measurements, and I adjusted color "by eyeball" to create a "best" mode, for viewing.
Since this is not a production projector, firmware color tables are likely to change, so reporting our settings wouldn't be of any help, regardless.

LG AF115 Commentary
While in many ways the AF115 feels like the CF181D, they are not the same. I tried for example dropping in all our calibration settings (both basic settings, and RGB) from the CF181D, and while the results weren't bad, they were obviously not close to a proper calibration.
Not only were the colors slightly off, but the brightness setting proved different. The 53 setting for brightness was a couple two high - for this AF115 projector I found 51 to be "on the money", at 53, the blacks were unnecessarily being brightened.
