Calibrating Infocus IN82

March 22nd, 2009

Ok so i had some time to spare and decided to finetune the calibration of my new projector Infocus IN82.

The “software” i used was mainly the Digital Video Essentials HD version.

Fortunately the colors are almost perfect out of the box and since i can darken the room i was able to close the iris almost entirely which allows me to get very nice black details while still maintaining the single chip dlp punch!

The settings:
Keystone: Off
Image Shift: Off
Contrast: 45
Brightness: 54
Color: 50
Tint: 50
BrilliantColor: Off
Gamma: Film
Overscan: Off
Iris: 32
Flesh Tone Correction: 0
Film Mode: On
Sharpness: Standard
Color Space: Auto
Color Temperature: 6500K
Color Gamut: Auto
Color Control:
Red gain 46, Green gain 47, Blue gain 50
Red offset 51, Green offset 48, Blue offset 50
Noise Reduction: Off
High Power: Off

Here are some schmears i took (it doesn’t do the projector justice, but still)

“Cheap” Blu-ray movies

March 4th, 2009

We all want the best quality possible when it comes to the movies we buy and 2009 you can’t get anything better than Blu-ray with it’s sweet high definition video and uncompressed multichannel audio. All this schmear do come at a price and i find myself questioning if a newly released movie on Blu-ray is worth 20+ euro.

I usually buy movies from but since the recession and the weakening of the swedish krona one might want to turn to domestic online shops.
Ginza for instance have 67 Blu-ray titles for 149 SEK (~13 euro) a piece. Granted it isn’t brand new titles but the price is right.

Here is the link to the campaign at Ginza – Blu-ray at

Please post tips of good deals you have found on the internet in the comments!
