Sony VPL-VW1100ES 4K Projector – Advanced Calibration Information

This is the advanced calibration information for the Sony VPL-VW1100ES projector, available only to our paid subscribers.

Mike's Notes

As usual, Sony provides a range of color spaces that make using a CMS unnecessary.  Nonetheless, it’s odd that a projector in this price range doesn’t have a CMS.  BT.709 was just about right on the Rec. 709 standard, with a chromaticity error that rarely exceeded 1%, with a maximum of 2.2% in one instance.  This is excellent performance that is sometimes not achievable in projectors that do have a CMS.  The other color spaces expanded the gamut to varying degrees.  Color Space 1 and Adobe RGB expand the gamut the most.  There is also an even wider DCI color space, which is designed to conform to the DCI standard.
