    I am running a Barco Data 808 Projector and cannot get the contrast set right with AVIA OR VE.

    the test patterns are not that good. A) I cannot get it to bloom and look out of focus.

    I am running though a HTPC so I could download an image off the web.

    Looking for a godo Contrast test pattern.

    thanks,

    David

    Greetings

    The AVIA and VE discs are good for telling you where "not" to set contrast ... They help to identify the proverbial red line.

    You need a light meter to be able to determine the optimal contrast setting though. This in conjunction with AVIA/VE will help you determine where to set contrast.

    Regards

    Where could I rent a light meter. Is this the same thing as a colorimeter.
