Samsung HD850 HDMI display setting


Samsung HD850 display settings question.

Whats the difference between RGB Normal and RGB Expand ?

If i remember correctly ( I MIGHT be completly wrong) its to do with the color gamut i.e the range of colors that the RGB signal carries...

Please correct me if im wrong



After doing some google searches - this is what I found in a Marantz dv7600 manual:

"Image data values in RGB-Normal format range
between 16 (black) and 235 (white).
• Image data values in RGB-Expand format range
between 0 (black) and 246 (white).
• The formats available for HDMI outputs depend
on the connected TV or projector. For details,
see the user’s manual of your TV or projector.
• Only RGB-Normal and RGB-Expand can be
selected for DVI outputs.
• When black rise to the surface depending on
the display, black Setup in the Video Adjustment
set to OIRE.
• YCbCr-1 (4:4:4) sends 8 bit data. YCbCr-2
(4:2:2) sends 10 bit data. If your TV or
projector supports YCbCr-2 (4:2:2), you can
enjoy the superior image quality of full 10 bit
