Display Calibration Guide – Volume 1: SDR

NOTICE: If you have lost your copy for whatever reason, please email me with the email you purchased the manual with and I will send you a new copy.

Display Calibration is a skill every Home Cinema enthusiast should have! However, the guides out in the wild aren’t necessarily the easiest to get to grips with – or provide all the permutations of calibration options in one place. The Simple Home Cinema Display Calibration Guide – Volume 1 is here to fill that space for SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) Calibration. Also check out Volume 2 – HDR here.

v1.1 Now Available.

Please note, requires the use of a Colorimeter such as this or this. However, you can start learning straight away with HCFR’s sensor simulation mode!

Also requires a Windows installation (in a virtual machine if on Mac or Linux) on a PC or laptop that can be connected to the screen you are calibrating if using patterns from the PC. Alternatively, external patterns can be run on a disc or cast to ChromeCast.
