Calibration Software

The Calman Home for LG software is a very accurate and cost-effective solution for home user calibration. It's practically turn key. [Calman Home for LG]

Calibration test patterns

If you're using the LG internal pattern generator, then you'll need these Calman stimulus patterns. Download and place these on a USB stick. Please each pattern in its own directory. If you're using an external pattern generator, then you won't need these.
If you're planning to calibration shadow detail (optional, tedious, but beneficial), then you'll need these other patterns too.
