Panasonic PT-AE4000 RGB Settings

These are the adjustments we made to Red, Green and Blue for the grayscale balance of Color 1 mode. This is accomplished by placing these adjustments into one of the three Custom settings (1, 2, or 3). We placed all of these into User 1 (which starts out as a copy of THX).

Now you have everything you need to copy our calibration efforts on your new Panasonic PT-AE4000 projector. Of course there will be slight variations due to the lamp (and lamp performance will change over time). We calibrated with the lamp virtually brand new, as opposed to waiting a couple hundred hours, which is generally considered more ideal. Still, any shifts are fairly slight. If In end up purchasing an PT-AE4000, or the souped up RS35 (with hand picked components and tighter quality control), I’ll be calibrating it when new, and then likely redoing the calibration after about 300 hours. If that all happens, I’ll post those numbers as well.

Bottom line: Excellent color, natural skin tones (if you don’t push the dynamic sharpness and other image features too hard). The Panasonic always looks very good, never strained, as long as you don’t run out of lumens trying to project on too large a screen for its brightness.
