  • If your monitor is always in DCI-P3 color gamut mode even in SDR mode then all your colors would be really oversaturated. I highly doubt this is the case.

    “Default setup of the screen out of the box was with the full 98% DCi-P3 colour gamut and so you had bright and vivid colours which were noticeably richer than a standard sRGB gamut display. The…[Read more]

  • Another question is: Since the DisplayCal Profile Loader deactivates when I’m watching movies with madVR, does the calibration even affect the image in any way?

    No (unless you have an nVidia card and enable “video overlay” in madVR options – calibration will then stay active for the desktop except for the video).

    However, the backlight of the monitor is really what determines your ultimate color gamut coverage, now you just need…

    Am I supposed to also calibrate the HDR mode somehow

    Usually this doesn’t work well, because in HDR mode, the monitor will do its own t…

  • The monitor “supports” HDR although it’s only 350 nits.

    I read that HDR movies should at least look as good as the SDR version with a better colour gamut even if the screen does not support higher nits for meaningful HDR. But when I tested HDR Blu-ray movies on the screen they looked notably worse than the SDR versions of the same movie did.…[Read more]

  • So I’m a super newbie here. I have a ColorMunki Display which I used on my new LG 27GL850 on default preset settings to really good results for everyday use.
