Epson Home Cinema LS100 Laser Projector Review – Advanced Calibration: CMS Calibration, Calibration Charts

CMS Settings for “Best Mode” – Game Mode

Like so many other projectors I have calibrated, the LS100 clips the whites ever so slightly (228 or so), and lowering contrast does nothing to help this matter. The projector also lacks Epson’s Super White control, so I have to simply live with the clipping. I left the contrast at its default value of 50. With the default color temp set to 4 and G-M set to 4, the white balance showed minus green and plus blue in the higher end of the grayscale, averaging around 6700K. The DeltaE measured an average of 6 across the grayscale. After white balance calibration, DeltaE measured at or below 1 everywhere except 10 IRE at 2. Grayscale was at 6500K, except for 10 IRE at 6700K. Overall, exceptional results.

DeltaE ranged from 2 on the low end and 9 on the high end. After white balance calibration DeltaE ranged from .5 to 3 at 100IRE. Like other Epson projectors Bright Mode has a skewed gamma that gets brighter the higher you go up the grayscale. So, I knew getting a linear gamma was not going to happen in Dynamic Mode. I was shooting for a 2.10 and ended up at 2.02 average.
