Sony TV Picture Settings and Calibration

For Sony LED and LCD TVs

A television in the process of being calibrated before we begin our review.

We have professionally calibrated the following Sony TVs based on strict ISF calibration guidelines using the best Sencore signal generators, colorometers, and Cal-Man Pro software. Settings for each TV listed are optimized to the D6500K color temperature.

The CIE Diagram shown above represents color on a 2D plane with white in the center, the curving gray line represents color temperature. D6500K is shown on the line with a red dot. When we calibrate a television, D6500K is the color temperature refrence that picture is calibrated to or as close to as possible.

Higher end lines of TVs have more robust options for calibration such as a 10-point white balance control to enable the user or calibrator to dial in the TV perfectly. Lower end lines of televisions have simpler settings options such as 2 point white balance settings or none at all.

Below is a listing of the Sony series we currently have calibrated picture settings posted for. The picture settings are on the main review but apply to all sizes in a particular series of televisions.
