Optoma HD8200 Projector Review
We calibrate each home theater that is reviewed. It is a pretty standard calibration, there’s always more that can be done by some of the “hi-end” calibrators. Our calibrations, including the HD8200, are normally limited to a grayscale calibration, along with brightness, contrast, color saturation, etc.
Optoma HD8200 Color Temperature
Since the HD8200′s Cinema mode was very cool (blue) in color balance, and almost identical to their User mode, we built our calibrated settings from User. Here are the User measurements BEFORE calibration
That’s pretty far off the mark, although consistent from dark grays to white.
Optoma HD8200 Basic Settings
In addition to calibrating Red Green and Blue for a correct grayscale balance (6500K), there are a number of other settings that come into play. Typically Contrast and Brightness (white balance and black balance), need to be done first. Color saturation and gamma also need adjustment.
Our final settings (numbers in parens are the default numbers)
|Contrast||46 (44)||38 (43)||33 (43)||46 (44)||42 (44)|
|Brightness||40 (38)||40 (50)||46 (51)||41 (38)||41 (41)|
All other settings are at their defaults for those modes.
Zoom was set at mid-range, All other settings at default
