Calibration settings are the same both for the 55” and te larger, 65” version of this TV. All content will display well with the following settings. For an enhanced gaming experience, slight changes must be done.
Set Picture Mode to Custom. Turn the Light Sensor and Auto Picture mode options off.
This way, brightness won’t shift automatically and mess the calibration. Set Brightness level to 1 for start, but feel free to adjust it according to the amount of light in the room. Leave Color at 50.
Switch to Brightness tab and do the following changes.
Set Contrast to 95, Gamma to 0 and Black Level to 50.
Leave (or switch) off Black Adjust and Adv. Contrast Enhancer.
On the other hand, keep Auto local Dimming and X-tended Dynamic Range on.
Go to Color tab and set Color to 50 (should be the default value) and Hue to 0. Set Color Temperature to Expert 1 and switch off Live Color. This way, the least amount of extra image processing is added.
Next, in the Clarity tab, leave Sharpness at 50 and also leave Reality Creation off. Only turn it on for older, low-resolution media. Also turn off Random Noise Reduction, Digital Noise Reduction and Smooth Gradation.
Leave Motionflow and Cinemotion off in the next tab. When watching movies that have 60p/60i frames you might get some judder – try to set Motion to TruCinema and also set CineMotion to High.
