HT Labs Measures: Marantz VP-12S2 DLP Projector

The top chart shows the gray scale of the Marantz VP-12S2 DLP projector as set by the manufacturer in the most accurate menu setting possible. The set measures 6,185 Kelvin with dark images and leans more toward 6,170 K with brighter images. After making adjustments using the Photo Research PR-650, the gray scale measures within just over 100 degrees of D6500, the accurate setting, across the entire range. The bottom chart shows that the primary colors of the display's filter wheel are close to those specified by SMPTE. This means that the display will reproduce most of the colors available in the system. The gray scale was slightly green before calibration and is quite close to the NTSC standard of D6500 afterward. The light output was approximately 7.8 foot-lamberts. The display has excellent DC restoration. The VP-12S2 has an excellent color decoder.—KM
