Mike's Calibration Notes - CMS

Mike’s CMS Calibration Notes: 

The standard color gamut is okay for the primaries (except for the usual DLP green), but the secondaries are all off in hue (see CIE charts).  Using the CMS, I could improve things a bit on the primaries, but the controls had little effect on saturation, so there was little change.  The Hue controls worked pretty well on the secondary colors however.

The final result yields an “okay” CIE chart.  In actual movie watching, colors were much better after the CMS adjustment.
