cc on panny plasma

Ok I have to ask. Walter and Jeremy (and anybody else who can fill in of course) when you cc and work with the panasonic plasmas. Do you have it set to monitor mode or not? Did you calibrate it in the monitor mode? /Joel

Monitor mode? Not sure what that is.

For calibration, I use all the manual controls and simply eyeball it to our Flanders Scientific color reference monitors.

Monitor mode? I don't think I have that mode. Can you explain? I don't use my plasma for cc, by the way.

Monitor mode meaning via the computer input? If this is what you mean I don't think this will work well, but I don't know for sure... It really needs to be fed via an I/O card like the Kona or Black Magic. You wont be able to get a proper signal to grade with from a computer video display card. But forgive me if I misunderstood.

Here is what I am doing...

I just had my new 1080p 50' Panasonic calibrated professionally with a probe and man does it look good. If your going to be doing any color correction on this, the calibration is well worth the $300.

They feed calibrated signals into the monitor via HDMI and there are settings that they access in the panasonic with their computer system and make adjustments that you cannot make from the menu. They set proper white and black balance, then they go in and adjust everything else to color bars from there. All monitored via a probe and special calibration software. I did make sure that he set all the "noise reduction" settings to OFF so I am getting a true unaltered picture. Now I will be feeding this from my Kona 3 card through an AJA Hi5 (HD/SDI to HDMI converter) into the Panny.

This will do nicely for my color grading monitor until I can purchase the FSI 24" LM-2450W... then it will become the client monitor at that point.

Hope this helps.

Ha! Nope...50" typo.. hehehe

Man this Kona 3 is incredible!

Just a word of warning if you want to monitor in true 24p make sure and go with the Pro TH seriess Panny as the new G and S class don't do true 24p, but the KONA will add the pulldown for you so you can monitor on these at 29.97 from what I am getting.
I have read the all the pannys have the same plasma panels just different insides that tell it what it can and cant do and the PRO series (TH series) have card slots for different cards (HD/SDI and such)

Has any one else read this and know it to be true?

I am looking into this very same question and talked to a guy at Pro Video and Tape (Portland, OR) who was actually quite knowledgeable. He confirmed the glass on the pannys to be the same but the main difference was the fact that you can buy additional connection cards that just pull out of the back of the panel to change connection types. I am going to go this way and look at having it professionally calibrated as I plan on using it for a temporary grading monitor.

On the panasonic pro serie plasma you can choose between normal, dynamic, cinema and monitor. On monitor the manual its a mode for working with film and tv. This was the mode i meant. Do you calibrate it in this mode or the normal mode? In monitor mode everything starts out very dark so if you should calibrate it in this mode you would have to change more from standard settings.

I have an panasonic pro plasma of the TH serie 42" and Aja kona LHe as I/O.
I also have a eye-one display 2 probe.

[Joel Arvidsson] "On the panasonic pro serie plasma you can choose between normal, dynamic, cinema and monitor."

We don't have "monitor" mode on any of our Pro Plasmas. Just Normal, Cinema and Dynamic. All are set to Normal and calibrated from there.

+1 for me.

I think ours is a 10 series, though.

My panasonic plasma is from the 11 serie. Monitor mode shows lightintensity in a different way.
