Mitsubishi HC9000D Projector – Performance-2

Mike’s NOTES:  As there is only one User color temp, you can only calibrate one mode.  All RGB settings are carried over to all modes.  The projector has a JVC RS1-like color gamut, everything (especially green is oversaturated).  I did a quick check of the color management and it appeared to affect secondary colors while adjusting primary colors, making it difficult to use.  Measurements showed that the Color control should be turned down to -14, but the picture seemed a bit washed out at that setting, so I switched it to -8.  Dynamic mode with the High Bright color temp looks a little better than the default 9300 color temp, so I would use that combination for daytime viewing of Sports etc.

The Calibration page provides the settings we used. That includes basic settings as well as gain and offset.
