In Reply to: Calibration Settings for Sony KDL-46Z5100 by ptvillan

Being that you mentioned Color Space: Wide, I'm going to assume that your calibrations are for the XBR9 model and not the Z5100 model.

Additionally, if it is the Z5100 model, I find it strange that your professional calibrator would have calibrated your display in the Nuetral color temp, since this contains a very inaccurate color gamut, and the causes the grayscale to heavily favor blue, which I would have expected your white balance settings to reflect blue gains and blue bias to be a higher negative number.

Also, if he were a professional calibrator, he would have noticed that the black corrector crushed black, and with a backlight set at 5, picture at 88, brightness set at 59, and a gamma set to medium, which I assume you meant 2, would have probably given you eyestrain.

For the Z5100, I calibrated the display using CalMAN software, and a Sencore OTC1000 meter. The optimal settings that I achieved, based on a light controlled room are:

Screen:
Wide Mode: ...........................Full
Auto Wide: ...........................On
4:3 Default: .........................Normal
Display Area: ........................Full Pixel
Picture Mode .........................Custom
Scene ................................Auto (or General)
Wide Mode: .....................Full
4:3 Default: ..Normal
Display Area: Full Pixel
Backlight ..............................4
Picture ..............................87
Brightness ............................50
Color .................................46
Hue ...................................0
Color Temperature .....................Warm 2
Sharpness .............................6
Noise Reduction .......................Off
MPEG Noise Reduction ..................Off
MotionFlow ............................Normal (Cable), Off (BD)
CineMotion ............................Auto 1 (Cable), Off (BD)

ADVANCED SECTION

Black Corrector .......................Off
ACE ...................................Off
Gamma .................................0
Auto Light Limiter ....................Off
Clear White ...........................Off

WHITE BALANCE

Red Gain .............................-14
Green Gain ............................0
Blue Gain .............................0
Red Bias...............................1
Green Bias ............................-1
Blue Bias ..............................0

Please note, these settings should be used as a starting point only. Your room color scheme, lighing conditions may differ from mine, and each panel differs slightly from each other.

Enjoy.
