    Hi all,

    Just picked up a new TV and thought I'd ask the question as to what gamma figure I should be aiming for? I used BT.1886 on my previous VT30 plasma and 2.22 on my Panasonic CX680 UHD LCD panel.
    Viewing conditions range from normal ambient lighting in the day with no light shining directly on the screen. To dimly lit room at night. I typically aim for 120 cd/m2 for peak luminance (should I increase this?) and don't tend to use day and night 'modes'.
    Every source runs through a Radiance 2143 and I use the Darbee at between 47 and 50 depending on that source. I like a punchy picture from a contrast perspective as I like the depth it gives the picture.

    Any thoughts welcome.

    Paul

    It is along with a forum to cover Screens & Video Processors...

    It would seem there are more suitable forums for this thread though.
