What are the different Color Modes in the Image menu used for?
The Color Mode setting adjusts the brightness, contrast, and color for various common viewing environments. Use this setting to quickly obtain a good picture. You can also select a different color mode for each input sourcewhich is useful if you view different types of images from different sources. (For example, you might set the HDMI 1 source to Natural if it's usually used for watching movies in the daytime with the blinds closed, and the PC source to Dynamic for playing video games with the blinds open.) Choose the Color Mode in the Image menu or press the Color Mode button on the remote control to select:
- Dynamic—For projecting the brightest picture available.
- Living Room—For watching television programs during the day.
- Natural—For projecting natural, accurate colors in a dimly lit room.
- Theatre—For viewing movies in a dimly lit room.
- Theatre Black 1—For images that are close to those in professional-use broadcast monitors. Use in a fully darkened room.
- Theatre Black 2—To emphasize rich colors, like those seen in movies at theater. Use in a fully darkened room.
- x.v.Color—For the most natural color reproduction when viewing movies through HDMI.
