COVID-19: the government of Quebec is shutting down non-essential businesses till April 13. Therefore, our lab is temporarily closed and we can't test new products. In the meantime, we will continue to update articles from home.

LG UH6100 Calibration Settings

For additional settings information, please consult the Common Problems and How to Calibrate pages.

These are the calibration settings that were used to review the LG UH6100. These settings are best for watching movies. For playing video games, first change the input icon to 'Game Console' and 'Picture Mode' to 'Game' before copying the remainder of the settings below. This will provide the lowest input lag. For use as a PC monitor, change the input icon to 'PC' to enable chroma support for clear text.

To begin, select 'Expert (Dark Room)' for the 'Picture Mode'.

LG UH6100 Calibration Settings 1

For our completely dark room, we set the backlight to 35. This can be adjusted to match your environment without affecting the colors. For bright rooms, increase the backlight to combat glare and reflections. We also adjusted the 'Contrast' to 100 as it provided us the closest gamma curve to our calibration goal. To remove over sharpening, we adjusted the 'H Sharpness'and the 'V Sharpness' to 0.

'Color' and 'Tint' were left at their default values.

LG UH6100 Calibration Settings 3

We remove the image processing, to achieve the most true image. We also put the 'Color Gamut' to normal and put the 'Gamma' setting to 2.2 as it was the closest match to our calibration goal. If you find blacks are crushed, you can reduce the 'Gamma' to 1.9.

LG UH6100 Calibration Settings 4

For the white balance, we use the 'Warm2' color temperature, as it is closest to our calibration goal of 6500K.

The following are the results of the white balance and colorspace calibration on our unit. They are provided for reference, and should not be copied as the calibration values vary per individual unit even for the same model and same size as the TV we reviewed due to manufacturing tolerances. If you want to try them you will need to enter all values shown, as all of them are active at the same time. If you end up with worse picture quality, simply reset them to the default values.
