JVC RS2000/ NX7 - INITIAL SETUP SETTINGS

JVC RS2000/ NX7 -  INITIAL SETUP SETTINGS 

Folks that are new to these projectors frequently ask for some settings to get started out of the box. Here are some I've gathered from various sources. Feel free to add some suggestions / additions. 


JVC RS2000/ NX7 notes
 
INITIAL SETUP & RECOMMENDED SETTINGS:


PICTURE MODE and COLOR PROFILE:

SDR:

If you don't want to use the color filter --> PICTURE MODE: NATURAL (if out-of-the-box) or USER1 (if calibrating)

If you want to use the color filter --> PICTURE MODE: USER1 --> COLOR PROFILE: CUSTOM1 + Upload the attached custom gamut file

NOTE: You should achieve 100% coverage of the REC.709 color gamut that applies to SDR without the filter, so don't feel like you have to use it with SDR


HDR:

If you don't want to use the color filter --> PICTURE MODE: HDR10 --> COLOR PROFILE: HDR

If you want to use the color filter --> PICTURE MODE: HDR10 --> COLOR PROFILE: BT2020

NOTE: HDR10 PICTURE MODE will be switched to automatically by the projector in response to an HDR video signal

Dylan’s notes -
With SDR content, choosing either Natural or one of the custom User modes, while opting for the REC709, D65, and 2.2 gamma preset options, offers respectable out-of-the-box performance. Deficiencies in accuracy remained under five dE in Natural mode.
Dynamic Tone Mapping
In the menu...
Input Signal>HDR Setting>HDR10 Auto Select. Make sure this is on Frame Adapt.
 
FW version 3.10 Frame Adapt Menus
There are 4 HDR Level modes that are selectable when the customer is in the new Frame Adapt Picture Mode

Auto (Default)
Will select between the 3 other modes depending on the brightest spot JVC measures in the frame or scene.  Note that reference to Max CLL/Max FALL is removed.  This feature is based on the brightness that JVC measures dynamically.  As a result, it works even if the metadata is missing or wrong.
Low - Typically for images above 2000 nits.
Medium - Typically for images 500-2000 nits.
High - Typically for images below 500 nits.
*Note-High mode will give you the brightest image but you will lose detail in high peak frames.

Frame Adapt Menus

HDR Processing
Static - To be used when the source output is set to a fixed nit level.
 Example -  Panasonic UB9000 HDR Optimizer

Frame by Frame
Will analyze and provide the proper dynamic tone mapping per frame.

Scene by Scene (Default)
 Will analyze and provide the proper dynamic tone mapping per scene.

Cinema Filter
Normal-Rec 709 Color space (Color filter is not engaged) (Default)

Wide-DCI/P3 Color space (Color filter is engaged)
"AUTO" uses the MaxCLL/FALL metadata that the JVC receives. If the HDR Optimizer is used it will send modified MaxCLL/FALL. Otherwise (and always from the 203) the JVC will get MaxCLL/FALL metadata off the disc and that can be anything from fairly good to non-existent. The other JVC settings ignore MaxCLL/FALL.
 
So, to do a proper comparison you should have the HDR Optimizer off and use the same (non-AUTO) setting for both. I suspect that you would not see any obvious differences.
 
Kris Deering adds - I would NOT use Auto. In my testing it would not give nearly as good of a result. Now the choice to use Low, Med, High probably comes down to your screen size, light output and what you are watching. In MY setup, I found HIGH gave the best image in most cases, but Med was better with REALLY high level content (like The Meg). But my screen is on the larger side so my peak white is in the mid-20's. Those with really bright setups may find med or low to be better.
