Overall skin tones were acceptable in the modes Eric calibrated/adjusted, and not bad in some of the others. Once again, any tendency is toward cooler whites rather than warmer ones, but post adjustment, some of those modes look pretty darn impressive.
Editor’s Note: Let me say here, we have provided our settings, but as I contract out for calibrations we pretty much get one shot at it. Were I still calibrating projectors (which I never enjoyed), I would try again. Not really because of skin tones, but because in our calibrated 4K w/HDR mode, I really never saw a strong, pure, rich red color. Overall, not bad, but please remember that I write my analysis, while on the hunt for truly excellent color that a serious home theater enthusiast might demand. If you never had any of your LCD TVs calibrated, and used modes like Vivid, Dynamic, Demo, or some others that are intentionally at least a little over the top, then you will be right at home with a good home entertainment projector like this Hisense Laser TV.
Those of you who have gear or even just the basic type calibration disc can play around. I do believe in seeing the Hisense Laser TV at several trade shows, that I’ve seen better reds in those demos (which are always 4K demos, of course). I’m suspect others calibrating the Hisense may end up with a better combination of settings, that might be more to my taste visually, yet not necessarily be better on paper. -art
I have included the usual four images of Bond - Daniel Craig - from Casino Royale, once again, to point out that there is no perfect skin tone. Different lighting has a massive impact. A well adjusted projector or TV will look great, and correct in all four. A projector that isn’t as on the money may look better on some than on others. Still, overall, the Hisense did a good job on skin tones.
