Calibration

To ensure we're grading our HDTVs based on their peak performance, we calibrate them using DisplayMate software. In the table below, you'll find a list of all the settings we altered. If it's not listed in the table below, we didn't touch it.

All of our calibration is done in conjunction with the DisplayMate software.

Video Modes

The 50PQ30 has the standard array of LG video modes: vivid, standard, cinema, sport, and game. There are also two expert modes that give users additional settings to fiddle around with. Typically we provide the manufacturer's description of each mode here, but LG persists in their refusal to include such a description on the TV or in the manual.
