What settings are important in calibrating my new TV?

Calibrating Your Color

Adjusting these settings will help you get the best possible picture out of your flat panel TV:

  • Brightness: Controls the strength of whites on the screen.
  • Contrast: Controls the depth of blacks on the screen.
  • Temperature (or Tint): The most common adjustment for skin tones. Too "cold" and people look green; too "hot" and they look pink.
  • Color (or Saturation): Controls how vivid the colors are on the screen.
  • Sharpness: Brings out the edges of objects on the screen. Often set too high or given an artificial boost with "edge enhancement" features.
