Greyscale Two Point Adjust

Select the 80 percent white

Choose Read Continuous

Adjust the Red and Blue White Balance settings balance the red and blue


Select 80 Percent White

Click on the 80 percent button



Click on the Continuous read button

Older LG's >All Settings>Picture>Picture Mode Settings>Expert Controls>White Balance

NEW LG Remote > Star > All Settings > Advanced Settings > Color >White Balance

You will go to your White Balance settings to find your RGB Gain and Bias
You will control the RED Green and Blue Gain=High controls



RGB balance

RED = +2

Blue = -3


You want to adjust the Red Green and Blue controls until you get all 3 RGB colors to match exactly this is close but not exact

This is what we ended up with 

LG Remote > Star > All Settings > Advanced Settings > Color >White Balance

Point make sure you are on Point > High if you are on the 80 chip and Low if you are on the 30 chip


80 percent will be on high point

30 percent will be on low point

Then we clicked on 30 % 

Click on the Continuous read button



Repeat the same process for the 30 percent chip

Older LG's >All Settings>Picture>Picture Mode Settings>Expert Controls>White Balance

LG Remote > Star > All Settings > Advanced Settings > Color >White Balance

RGB balance

RED = +2

Blue = -3


You want to adjust the Red Green and Blue controls until you get all 3 RGB colors to match exactly this is close but not exact

This is what we ended up with 


Toggle back and forth with the 80 and 30 toggle till you get the Bias's and Gains to be absolutely flat 

Picture here

Finally after you are finished do a Goal Post "Read Series" to get the final reading to make sure all's good.

Final reading  delta E should be below 1 


Delta E is the difference

click Next

This is the 10 point adjustment - OPTIONAL if you have a lot of time if you don't skip to ??


Grayscale and Gamma Multipoint Adjust


This step adjusts the color balance and the target luminance

>Start at 100 percent and work down to 10 percent

LG Remote > Star > All Settings > Advanced Settings > Color > White Balance > Method > Change to 10 Points


Click on Read Series "Goal Post"

To get a starting point reading

This chart will show how much you are off

Example:
100 is more off than 10%

Next Start at the 100 chip and turn on Continuous Scan

On the LG Remote > Star

> All Settings

> Advanced Settings

> Color

> White Balance

> Signal Level %

This is where we'll change the signal level of the TV from 10 to 100 percent to match the chip selected in the CalMan software

Start at 100 percent and work down matching the chip selected in the CalMan Software

In the White balance menu

go to Red, Green and Blue and adjust each level

Watch this chart while you are adjusting the Red Green and Blue colors

in the "Fine Tune" controls on the TV

With Blue selected adjust up and down till you get a flat line on

the chart

Same with Red and Green keep adjusting so the chart shows as 

flat a line as possible

Start with this and adjust RGB

This is the goal no line at all




Go through and set RGB levels on each signal level to get the flat line on the RGB Balance Charts

Start with 100 and TV set to 100 percent signal level

>Next 80 chip with TV set to 80 percent signal level

>Next 70 chip with TV set to 70 percent signal level

till you get to 10 chip with TV set to 10 percent signal level



This is what it should look like after you set all the levels 10-100

Complete Flat Blue Line


Make Sure you Leave the LG at 100 Percent Level after you are finished with this step!!




Then click Next

Color Management System CMS Adjust for minimum CMS error and

CMS color gamut error

Primaries - Optimize Gamut Luminance  

and 

Secondaries - Optimize Hue and Saturation


Click the Goal Post to get a read and see where the balls fall in the boxes

Next we need to turn on > Fine Tuning on the LG Monitor

LG Remote

> Star

> All Settings

> Advanced Settings

> Color

> Fine Tune

> Color Adjustment

Select Color Adjustment

> Color Adjustment

> Choose User Selection

Once User Selection is turned on then all the controls are

available on the TV to adjust the colors to adjust the RGB settings

Idea here is to get the colors in the boxes

Most of the colors will be close so focus on the ones farthest away from the target in the boxes.

Adjusting one color will effect another color

Start with the primary colors first Red, Green and Blue then

the Secondary Colors Cyan, Magenta and Yellow


To Adjust the RED press the RED Chip

Adjust the saturation, tint and luminance on each color till they are in the box

Do all the colors till they are in the box

Put on Continuous Read on the Calman

Older LG's >All Settings>Picture>Picture Mode Settings>Expert Controls>Color Management System>Pick Color Green for example

NEW LG Remote > Star > All Settings > Advanced Settings > Color > Fine Tuning and choose Select Color RED



FRAME GRAB HERE COLOR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

If you click on the color of the box as we have clicked on Red then you will get the close up of the offset of the color red dot is out of the box.


Primary Colors  - Y luminance is critical to get right

Secondary Colors - x and y Hue or Tint is critical to get right

Once Red is finished then do GREEN, AND BLUE - Adjusting luminance to get it right

Then do Cyan, Magenta and Yellow - Adjusting luminance and tint

Go in the order of the boxes in CalMan

Do a Read Series again and re adjust luminace one more time on all


Then click Next once you have all the colors in the boxes

Saturation Sweeps - Spirt of this is if most the balls are in the boxes we're good but can granularly adjust if you have the time.  For general CC unless something is really off move on.


Here we'll do the same workflow setting the video levels to 20 to 100 percent


Then adjust the fine tuning saturation till the boxes line up as well as possible


Selecting every color and video level percentage 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100

Click the Goal Post to get a read and see where the balls fall in the boxes


Then choose the color you want to adjust here 


Again starting with Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow

Turn on Continuous Scan


LG Remote > Star > All Settings > Advanced Settings > Color > Fine Tuning and choose Select Color >yellow


Only adjust the saturation levels don't touch luminance or tint

Example with yellow selected try to get all the yellows in the boxes going through all the video levels


when you adjust the other boxes generally fall closer to their boxes as well 


Start with 100 and TV set to 100 percent signal level

>Next 80 chip with TV set to 80 percent signal level

>Next 60 chip with TV set to 60 percent signal level

till you get to 20 chip with TV set to 20 percent signal level

When finished with all the colors set the TV to 100 percent Level before moving on - only if you did the 10 point greyscale if just did two point you are good


then click Next


Recheck Black/White Levels


Press buttons >Brightness and >Contrast




Older LG's >All Settings>Picture>Brightness

LG Remote > Star > All Settings > Advanced Settings > Brightness > Black Level


Put up the charts again 

Brightness = Black chip chart

Contrast = White chip Chart


Maybe even put up color bars??


Brightness:

You want to barely see 16 and 17 but should not see any squares below 16 those should be invisible.


Definitely do not want to see 15d


We set Black Level to 58-60 on the LG Monitors

to put up the White Pludge you want to see up to 254 and don't want to see any pink tones or noise?


LG Remote > Star > All Settings > Advanced Settings > Brightness >

Use Adjust Contrast on the LG to adjust this

82 seemed the best

RE - Check and Adjust Luminance 

Here are the specs 40 to 50 for a Dim Room our suites













Click on Read Continuous lower left corner


LG Remote > Star > All Settings > Advanced Settings > Brightness

and adjust the Contrast setting


Now adjust Contrast on the Monitor


Older LG's >All Settings>Picture>Picture Mode Settings>Contrast


This slide says 43 but try for 45

Adjust the Contrast Setting till Luminance is reading 45 ish

Final check Open
