We have the commercial thread, here's the DIY thread. As in the commercial thread I hope to get everything covered. All materials have been tested using a ColorMunki Create colorimeter. The projector used is a BenQ W5000. The difference between the reference image and the materials readings will give us a good idea as to how a material performs, if there's a color push, a good idea of calibration necessary for each material, etc. Here is the reference reading taken directly from the pj:

Descriptions

Thanks to andrewfee who's original design is what I used!

Descriptions of the various charts.



This upper left chart shows RGB luminance at each gray scale measure. This can tell you if one of your primary colors is dropping off at any particular point. Ideally you want to have all three color lines unite to a solid black line and overlay the dashed line - which represents the goal.



Gamma is up to the preference of the user. I like a gamma of 2.2. Gamma can probably be explained better by lcaillo. Suffice it to say that if your gamma is off, so will your dark or shadow details.



The left DeltaE is the gray scale error. Some say less than 5 is good, some say less than 3, some even go as high as 14. I believe 3 is a good number with less than 5 still acceptable.



Gives you the overall color tracking of the material from 0IRE to 100IRE. Again, in an ideal world everything will track as a solid line right on top of D65. Rarely that's the case though. Sometimes you can have less green, as with the Supernova, or one of the other primaries and yet all the readings come out fine.



Color gamut luminance readings. They should be close to the black bar next to the colored bar.



Color gamut readings. Ideally you want them to fall within the diamond target.



Primary and secondary luminance measures.



Single readings from one gray scale point. This can vary depending upon which measure is selected. This is one item that may be removed in the future as I believe it can be misconstrued some.



Gray scale readings. Numbers should be .3127 and .3290 for a calibrated screen



This is color temperature. The temp we're looking for is 6503. The left number is an average of all the gray scale measures. The right is a particular measure's temp.



This is where there may or may not be notes entered for the particular measure
