LG’s LE5500 – Picture Wizard Video Calibration – Great Picture Quality Made Easy

Submitted by on November 3, 2010 – 5:24 pmNo Comment

Let’s face it, most people will not go through a lot of effort to make sure their TV has the best picture quality.  Just the term “video calibration” will send most people running. But LG’s LE5500 has a “picture wizard” that makes it as simple as choosing which picture you like best. When you are done, voila! You have the best picture for your room and for your taste.

LG is working with the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) to ensure that their line of Infinia TVs will, once calibrated with the picture wizard, meet the ISF standards for picture quality. Still, the Picture Wizard takes into account that some people like vivid pictures that jump out at them, and others like a subtle, more movie-like picture.

How to Use LG’s Infinia Picture Wizard

To use the picture wizard, go to the picture category in the TV’s menu and click on Picture Wizard.  Here, you will be taken through steps where you adjust the brightness, contrast, tint, color and sharpness.  You will use the navigation arrows to turn settings up or down until they match the picture at the top of the screen.

When complete, the adjustments are saved to the ISF Expert 1 setting.  You can can access this setting along with other picture modes including Intelligent Sensor (automatic adjustment for room lighting), Standard, Vivid, Cinema, Sports, and Game by pressing a button on the remote.

If you want to have a professional calibrate the picture, the TV is ISFcc ready.  This makes it easy for an ISF certified installer to make adjustments for both day and night TV viewing and lock in the settings.
