Optoma HD8000 1080p DLP Projector Settings


In the past we've been reluctant to provide the precise settings that we have found to produce the best image. But readers have been asking for this information, so we will provide it, apart from the color temperature setup numbers (if they are hidden in service menus accessible only by codes).

Keep in mind, however, that unit-to-unit sample variations, the viewing environment, and the source might render these recommendations less than optimum, though we hope they will provide a useful starting place.

We strongly recommend that you confirm the results on your sample by using one of the many display setup DVDs that are available, such as Digital Video Essentials. This will help you to set the user video controls correctly. Precision tools and an experienced calibrator, however, are still needed to precisely dial in the color temperature.
