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
Advanced:
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 play.com 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 ginza.se

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