Note: All of my measurements and calibration work was done without using the mirror.
The HU80KA has 9 modes (Vivid, Standard, Cinema (User), Sports, Game, HDR Effect, technicolor Expert, Expert (Bright Room) & Expert (Dark Room). I spent most of my time with Expert (Dark Room), Standard & Standard HDR. The menu layout is identical to LG’s OLED & LCD TV’s which in of its self I have no issues with, however some of the preset values seemed copied over too and don’t make much sense here. For example, Expert Dark, Expert Bright and technicolor modes all have contrast defaulted to 80 which is far too low making this lumen challenged projector dimmer than it needs to be. Like LG’s OLED’s these 3 modes are nearly identical to each other except for some slight gamma differences.
Note: The terminology used in this calibration page, Brightest Mode and Best Mode, refer to two modes of this projector. "Brightest Mode" refers to the brightest (calibrated) mode the projector has, while "Best Mode" refers to the mode with the best calibrated color offered by the projector. These modes will often not be named "Brightest" or "Best" in the projector's menu - these are merely terms we use to describe the brightest mode and the mode with the best color.
