The Pro Cinema G6550 WU has multiple modes, and to be honest, not a bad looking one in the batch. Oh, there's variation, and certainly none looks quite as good as could be expected if the projector was properly calibrated, but they do look close. That said, even Dynamic, the brightest mode, looks pretty good, untouched and even better with just slight adjustments. Like most brightest modes it tends to be too green yellow.
The first sequence runs through all the modes, one image at a time, same exposure. The image is a frame from a CNBC program. Vibrant colors, and skin tones. The last three images in this image player use our text spreadsheet with primary and secondary colors, and also a woman's face for considering skin tones. Those three are, respectively, Dynamic, Presentation, and Theatre modes.
All the modes but one, Presentation, have color temps near the theoretically ideal 6500K specified for movies, etc., but that doesn't mean R,G, and B are in perfect balance. Presentation mode, compared to the others is a bit cooler, with the color temp at 100 IRE (white) tending to be a bit thin on reds, strong on Blues and also a bit too much green, but not a whole lot. The image player here shows our test spreadsheet, with it's color charts showing primary, secondary, and in between colors, as well as a woman's face for viewing skin tones.
One mode: Multi-Projection appears to be essentially the same as Theatre mode. Theater mode, Mike determined to be the best one to base his calibration on. That mode is normally used when more than one of these projectors is used together in an edge blending environment, not something that you find in a home (more likely a museum, or art gallery, or…)
While calibrating a projector with the colors just about dead on, almost any of these modes is fine for casual viewing, including sports, gaming, and less than critical movie viewing.
