LG 55LM8600 and 47LM8600 Series Calibrations and Picture Settings

by , Senior Editor

Calibrated Picture Settings: We utilized to 2-point white balance control to get close to D6500K without having to go the full 20-point white balance route. After much testing with the LED "local dimming" feature, we decided it was better left to the Off position. The Picture Mode settings and calibration controls for the LM8600 are very complete and it also contains ISFccc connection for easy Calman or other software calibration. There are also luminance settings for RGBYCM. The following settings still allow plenty of backlight for a well-lit picture. You will find these settings show a bit more luminance and better dark shadow detail than the standard Cinema setting. Turning the backlight up a few notches will help with brighter room situations.

Following is a run down of the different preset picture mode settings:

  • Standard - lots of blue push - vibrant
  • Vivid - uses too much contrast and everything else - especially edge enhancement - not recommended
  • Cinema - Very good setting for movies
  • Expert 1 and 2 - Can be programmed by the user
  • Game - Specially designed for better gaming and the dual gaming mode setting for fast action
