    Would you mind someone explain this for me ?Is he right?
    Steve Shaw from lightillusion said:
    If you are serious about calibration the only truly viable option is to turn off all the display’s internal Colour Management Systems, and use a 3D LUT for all calibration. No display’s manual calibration capabilities come close to this level of accuracy.
    And Also see this:
    Beyond this, many TVs have what are claimed as ‘professional’ calibration pre-sets, such as ISF or THX. Unfortunately such settings should be considered as nothing more than ‘marketing gimmicks’, as rarely are they accurate at all. At best, they are just ‘less wrong’.

    hi Amir
    Steve is correct, for the most part. A 3D LUT is going to be more accurate however consumer displays do not have the ability to have a LUT so we work with what is available to us.

    Thank you Gregg but what about this:

    Hi Amir
    ISF does not claim any type of Professional preset…ISF claims, when in the ISF mode, you will have the controls to properly calibrate the display.

    THX does have a professional preset. Depending on manufacturer, it varies in level of accuracy. In all cases better than any regular out of the box experience however not to par with a professional in home calibration.
