UPDATE Nov 2018: Noted High contrast edges, e.g. trees against sky, were showing a halo similar to oversharpening.  Reduced BrillColour from 8 to 1, well below the as-delivered setting of 6.  Also reduce Brightness from 1 to -3 to respond to comments about overall brightness: still able to see 1% step patterns near 3% and 97%.

UPDATE Mar 2018: Noted Reds were dull & biased towards brown. Adjusted R hue and sat a touch, and increased BrillColour and Sharpness.  We also now have a test image and reference print from Marrutt.  Settings as at Nov 2015 except as amended in colour…

This projector is a 4200 Lumen 1920 x 1080 pixel high definition projector.  It has a x1.5 zoom lens that facilitates quick image resizing so that we can use the full 6 foot wide screen for either 1920×1080 (16:9) or 1400×1050 (4:3) projection.
