SIM2 Nero 3D-2 Projector Review

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)
Standard 666 @ 7223
High 675 @ 10601
Medium 772 @ 8702
Low 637 @ 7456
Native 825 @ 8437
D75 729 @ 8726
D65 669 @ 7134
D50 586 @ 5603
C 610 @ 7817
User 637 @ 7448

Out of the Box Measurements:

Color Temp over IRE Range, Best mode (D65)
30 IRE 7049
50 IRE 7060
80 IRE 7099
100 IRE 7134

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.

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.
