Calibrating the InFocus 777 was very straightforward. I first set brightness and contrast based on the image off of my Firehawk screen (high contast - light gray). As a result, those settings would vary depending on the screen surface you choose.
I ended up with:
You will notice a "cooling trend" at the brighter measurements... At the lower IRE ranges I was getting termperature measurements from the mid 6400's (10 IRE) to right around 6500K (at 50 IRE) but by the time I got up to 80 and 100 IRE, the temperature increased to 6532 and 6547 respectively. Translation, dark grays shift every slightly to red, while very bright grays and also white, shift very slightly toward blue and green.
Overall the neutrality of the grays was very good. I've seen better, but then, with a lot more playing, I may have been able to come up with slightly better settings. Also, I did not go into the service menus, where it may be easier to fine tune the settings.
Note, all calibrations were done with a signal from DVD passed to the projector via DVI/HDMI (digital). I did not do separate measurements for component input. Nor did I do a separate calibration for HDTV.
Looking for noise in the dark areas on this DLP projector was more challenging than usual, which is to say that I found the 777 to be very low in noise levels for a DLP projector. In this regard, it was cleaner than the SIM2.
The Advanced (Picture) Menu has a Noise control option, but I did not experiment with it, finding image noise levels to be perfectly acceptable for normal viewing.
