Sony VPL-HW30ES Projector – Performance-3

Quick cal of User 2 w/Custom 5 color temp reduces the green, but only results in 39 more lumens than default Dynamic setting and looks similar to it.

All of the many preset modes (10) seem available for 3D viewing. When you switch to a 3D source, it might say “Cinema 1 (3D)” or “Dynamic (3D)”…

Below, the first image shows our calibrated “best” mode, with its 814 measured lumens and mid-zoom, and below it, the cooler, and greener “brightest mode” at 1065 lumens. (The exposures were balanced to try to get similar brightness.)
