AUTO CALIBRATION Posted on June 5, 2021 By Phil Jones Sony’s Auto Calibration Another great feature found on Sony’s 4K SXRD projectors is Auto Calibration. Auto Calibration is especially important for lamp-based projectors because they shift color quite a bit as they age (starting from day one). This is why many calibrators will tell you to wait at least a couple hundred hours before calibrating. Also, if you replace a projector’s lamp, the replacement might not have the same color characteristics as your previous lamp, requiring professional recalibration Once a Sony 4K SXRD home theater projector has been calibrated, you can use the Auto Calibrate feature (maybe once or twice a year) to restore the picture to the way it looked the day the projector was first calibrated. Combining the stability of a laser light engine with the Auto Calibrate feature ensures that the laser-based models will deliver “on the money” color accuracy for several years.
