SIM2 Nero 3D-2 Projector Calibration and Settings

Below are the measurements pre-calibration, as well as the post calibration measurements and settings for the Nero 3D-2 projector.

SIM2 Nero 3D-2 Color Temperature

Lumen Output and Color Temp at 100 IRE (mid zoom)
Standard666 @ 7223
High675 @ 10601
Medium772 @ 8702
Low637 @ 7456
Native825 @ 8437

D65669 @ 7134
D50586 @ 5603
C610 @ 7817
User637 @ 7448

Out of the Box Measurements:

Color Temp over IRE Range, Best mode (D65)
30 IRE7049
50 IRE7060
80 IRE7099
100 IRE7134

The SIM2’s default “best” mode is slightly cool, as you can see. Those numbers should be around 6500K.  That was easily fixed by calibration.

Calibration Settings

Calibration settings for User mode:


Default gamma of 2.2.
All else on default.

x/y Settings (default values in parenthesis):

x (.314)= .327
y (.325)= .326

Mike’s NOTES: Grayscale calibration affects the full IRE range, but the RGB balance is so consistent across the range that excellent results can be achieved.  The color temperature choices and white point adjustments are listed as color management, but there is no true color management available, at least not in the user menus.  The Rec. 709 CIE chart shows accurate primary colors, while the secondaries are slightly off.
