Epson Pro Cinema 6040UB, Home Cinema 5040UB – Advanced Calibration

This is the advanced calibration information for the Epson Pro Cinema 6040UB and Home Cinema 5040UB projectors, available only to our paid subscribers.

This “advanced” calibration data was created while using an early engineering sample of the 6040UB.  We believe that full production projectors – which are shipping as of early Sept 2016, will have modified color tables.  As a result we plan to revisit these projectors, bringing in a full production version, so we can update our review and provide revised settings due to changes made.

Update: In the regular calibration review page here, I explain that all previous calibrations are mute, that the latest, with screen shots at the bottom of the regular calibration page, are our best.  And that everything is in the screen shots, so this Advanced Calibration Page is no longer needed.
