This test looks similar to the 4:3 Aspect Ratio test, but the 16:9 Aspect Ratio test pattern is used to make sure that your DVD player is set to the proper display mode.
The 4:3 aspect ratio circle and boxes will determine your video monitor’s alignment for a 4:3 aspect ratio display.
This procedure is designed to let you optimize the way the overall television/monitor’s picture resolution looks.
Color and Tint (also known as “hue”) settings work together to create the correct color imaging for the picture.
For the brightness test, THX Optimizer provides a signal that displays two bars containing ten shades of black at the top and bottom of the screen, the THX logo, and a drop shadow behind the THX logo.
Settings for contrast (white levels) and brightness (black levels) are critical to the proper viewing of a picture on a video monitor or television.
Setup your new HDTV or projector for better picture quality in just minutes. THX Optimizer is an easy-to-use, on-screen calibration tool for home theater systems.
