Do I need to set anything up? Does it work with VLC?

You need:

MPC-HC Media Player 32bit
FFDShow Tryouts 32-bit
LAV Filters x86
AVISynth
Reclock
SVP

  • Install MPC-HC, FFDShow, LAV Filters, AVISynth, Reclock in that order. Preferably all in the same folder for easy access.
  • Go start menu and open up FFDShow video and audio decoder config. Click DirectShow Control and drag the slider to 'Do not use'.
  • Open MPC-HC, right click the screen and open options. Click formats>video, apply. Click Output, EVR Custom Pres.** and change audio device to Reclock Audio Renderer.
  • Click Internal filters, right click and disable all filters.
  • Click Audio Switcher, untick Enable.
  • Click External Filters, add LAV Splitter, LAV Audio, LAV video, ffdshow Raw video filter in that order and change all to prefer. (Optional: Go into LAV video options and set hardware acceleration. CUDA or DXVA copyback)
  • Open reclock settings in start menu and go Advanced settings and tick Force to be loaded.
  • Now install SVP.
  • Open SVP install directory, *\SVP\Resources\MT, copy avisynth.dll and paste in syswow64 or system32. Wherever avisynth already exists. Replace it. This is SVP's version which is optimised.
  • Launch SVP before playing any media or make it start with windows and leave it open.
  • If your video lags, try enabling OpenGL acceleration in SVP.
  • Uninstall your other media players because you will now see how crap they look.


(Optional, for better image quality download MadVR renderer and use that instead of EVR Custom. (open lav filters settings and untick all outputs except YV12, P010, P016.))


SVP makes everything so lifelike. The difference is incredible and hard to describe. Everything is just so fluid. This is what 120hz what meant to look like.

hey, just grabbed this monitor yesterday and i gotta say im a little under whelmed by the PQ. sold my cheapy aoc 23inch ips monitor that i got for 150 to switch to this and kinda feel like im just paying for the looks. i tried the calibrated settings and they are just way to dark, while with the stock settings the colors seem a over saturated. has anyone tried using dynamic contrast and just letting the monitor take care of the picture settings?? with the ips thats what i did, but i could actually see it controlling the brightness on that after about 4 seconds, with this one im not seeing it change when i enable dynamic brightness , however i think that would be the best setting i have found so far...

Probably not. I don't think I could see a difference with it added but I see no reason not to install it.

If using MadVR from above guide and you want to use the driver's color profile for your videos, heres the yCMS calibration table:

red, XYZ, 0.44382, 0.22313, 0.00906
green, XYZ, 0.37010, 0.68892, 0.09334
blue, XYZ, 0.15027, 0.08800, 0.72250
white, XYZ, 0.96419, 1.00005, 0.82489

thanks, i tried getting that to work, but svp came up with a error message. not sure what i was doing wrong. ended up bailing on it for now, just been trying to get the thing calibrated as best i can without any hardware. for anyone interested the best i could come up with is using a free program called calibrize, worked quite well actually in conjunction with another piece of software from over at avs that i already had to test contrast, brightness etc. what i did notice with this monitor is that the white levels and brightness etc, seem to pass all the tests pretty much no matter what level they are on, its kind of like lowering the brightness on a iphone, it doesnt really affect anything to do with the picture which i believe is a sign of a good product. i ended up doing 2 seperate settings, one for a darker pic, and one for a brighter pic as a result. for the darker pic i have:
brightness: 30
contrast: 71
sharpness: 60
rather than enter other ppls color settings i left all at default and used calibrize to set the colour, its a very simple tool and works remarkably well.

for the brighter settings, which will be my main one for gaming i just used dynamic contrast on as that passes all the tests perfectly with the software i have (i forget the name) that i got from over at avs, and once again used calibrize to set the colours accurately, and i am now pretty pleased with the picture smile.gif

anyone that doesnt have the correct tools to do a proper calibration and are perhaps blindly entering in settings of others, i highly recommend you try out calibrize.

I may calibrate this monitor with a Spyder 4 Pro but so far I like how it is in cinema settings for games. Skyrim looks great and so does BF3. Not all monitors of the same make and model are created equal tha tis for sure, so some may get one that is a little funky looking out of the box. Perhaps it was a friday monitor. I just wish I could find 2 more to but online. Frys has some in other states but they will not ship them for some reason. They are totally sold out anywhere near me. AMazon had a new one for 576 bucks but I got mine for 360. Some online retailers say they can special order them but I do not really trust that. I have been strung on for months with things like that before and never got the product.

It gets an error because it can't copy a certain file to the windows directory. I should have put that in the instructions. To install SVP properly, you need to go into the SVP directory, *\SVP\Resources\MT and copy avisynth.dll and paste it into syswow64 (64bit) or system32 (32bit) and replace the existing avisynth.dll.

I've been seeing people talking about the SA950 sagging down on the left side due to how the stand is, wouldn't this make the backlight bleed in the lower right hand corner worse over time if it puts more and more pressure on that area?
