The best projector for home can turn your room into the heaven of home cinema. After buying a particular projector model from a reputed company, the first thing that you need to do is set it up. Next, you will have to adjust the settings of a picture on the home projector.

Here, we will be covering the basics of adjusting the picture settings on your projector. But first, let us see thebasic five steps to adjust images on a projector correctly. They are:

  1. Turn the projector on to display images
  2. Use the lens shift or feet to adjust the images’ angles
  3. Use keystone correction for adjusting the images’ shapes
  4. Zoom out or in to fit screens
  5. Repeat the steps mentioned above as necessary for dialling in the images to your screens


Adjusting picture settings 

Contrast, blackness and brightness

This is an act of balance because black on projectors refers to the lack of light & brightness is the opposite. Try to study & tweak the images in the normal ambient light. You can close the blinds or curtains in the room to get rid of ambient light. It will improve both brightness and black levels massively.

If you’re calibrating for a movie, set your projector to the mode of ‘movie’ or ‘cinema’. Next, find a sequence that has plenty of black inside of it. Push the dial of brightness in the settings menu of the picture up & down until you see the overall image bright enough & the black portions of the image convincing.

You are looking for black which looks black but includes enough detail inside of it – like texture on suits or bright stars in different creases or spaces. If the black is similar to a uniform block, understand that the brightness has been pulled down way too far.

After this, move on to the slider of contrast & follow all the above-mentioned steps for the white parts of the image. Look for pure and Bright white as you retain the most amount of detail.

• Colour, sharpness, colour temperature and tint

Tweaking for tint and colour can be done perfectly by prioritising the tones of the skin. It should not be hard to get sequences that feature close-ups of some regular-looking humans.

Try pushing the slider of colour until they look perfectly normal. A fully natural point will be there somewhere between ill-looking and pale & downright orange. Rosy and warm colours include an instant appeal. So, you can go a little paler than the eyes prefer initially.

Adjusting sharpness is considered another act of balance between full HD detail & the integrity of the edges. If you push sharpness a little too high, you will see ‘jaggies’ & poorly defined lines which appear stepped. You need to push the level of sharpness down a bit & jaggies will not be visible much.

• Picture quality

The users can change the mode of the picture & adjust expert settings as per their preferences and benefits. To access the settings of picture quality, they need to select settings from the screen of Home. Then they need to visitthe option of General and then Picture Mode. Let us see some basic modes of pictures that will be present there.

  1. Standard

This is the default picture mode that is suitable for general environments of viewing.

  1. Dynamic

This mode of picture can make the pictures clearer and brighter in bright environments of viewing.

  1. Movie

This mode of the picture is the most suitable for viewing movies or shows in dark rooms.

  1. Filmmaker mode

This mode disables television features like colour enhancements and motion smoothing. It protects the content to help the users experience shows and movies just as the filmmaker intended.

This mode may look a little darker as compared to the other modes of the picture. The users can change this mode of the Filmmaker to a different mode of the picture.
