Picture Calibration:

Calibration Notes: Right out of the box you will notice a strong blue push from the Standard setting. Changing this to the Movie setting seems to brighten the picture while adding warmer color tones that make the picture much more realistic. This gets you going toward D6500K which is more complicated to obtain on this plasma than many TVs. Follow the picture settings below to calibrate.
