Virtually every home projector we review gets calibrated. Note we do not calibrate many all-in-one, and gaming projectors. This Sony VPL-HW50ES is no exception. Mike got to calibrate it before I really started watching the VPL-HW50ES.
Our calibrations, including this Sony VPL-HW50ES, are normally limited to a grayscale calibration, along with brightness, contrast, color saturation, tint (where applicable), etc. Only in very special circumstances will we calibrate the individual colors, in which case we discuss why.
Here are some pre-calibration numbers for the Sony VPL-HW50, our calibration settings, and the final results.
