The DV32R/FLR video test patterns


Active Member
Good afternoon,

are the video test patterns integrated into the DVD drivers good enough or do you use Avia and/or DVE to calibrate your system?

I've the impression that, since an investment into a Colourfacts (or equivalent) is not yet scheduled, what is included into the drivers is fine enough for a SUBJECTIVE calibration.

Any comment / opinion is highly appreciated.

Regards, Lenny

They are a good start, DVDE is worth running through though..

Got the suggestion: I'll order a DVE disk in the power buy section animated by Piero Milani.
Do you use colour samplers to make your calibration or do you just do it subjectively?

Ciao, Lenny

I have used both DVDE and colour analyser calibration. Like Graham says the built ins are a good start but I found them very limited.
The same goes for the audio. I have used the AV192 internal generated signals for TMREQ but I have also used the DVDE signals and then I get slightly different readings mainly on the dB level adjustment.
I used my ears to conclude which I found most suiteable (realistic?) and settled on the DVDE.
