I am currently working on a design project for a feature. They have requested the design to be delivered in P3 Gamut (RGB). They will accept sRGB as well, but I would love to work with the larger gamut.
When using the P3 Emulation on the 2461W, do I need to adjust the gamma and white point to match the chosen P3 format?
I read somewhere that the FSI P3 emulation allows for the wider gamut of P3 but does not introduce other corrections for example gamma or white point.
Thanks, in advance.

On the LM-2461W you should go to the color space menu selection and select P3, do not try to manually select gamma or color temperature presets after you do this as it will kick you out of the P3 selection (per the user manual instructions/warnings).
The P3 selection sets gamma (2.6), white balance (0.314, 0.351), and gamut (greater than 97% coverage with a LM-2461W) to P3 specifications.

That information is incorrect, but if you did want to do a custom color space that is P3 gamut only you can do so by creating a custom 3D LUT using one of the many programs that export in our formats (e.g. CalMAN, LightSpace, etc.).
