Description

Your Sony A9G OLED TV looks good out of the box, but after making a few small adjustments you can have a TV that is perfectly tailored to your viewing room. In this video, we show you how to make those adjustments to your set. Sony MASTER Series A9G OLED TV: https://www.crutchfield.com/i-rYTVc2D4/shopsearch/sony_master_series_a9g_oled_tv.html 1. Picture mode: Sony’s options include Vivid, Standard, Custom, Cinema Pro, Cinema Home, Sports and Animation. Custom produces the most accurate picture, and also gives you access to the most settings. 2. Picture Brightness: You can adjust overall picture brightness to suit your room’s lighting conditions and your own personal tastes. The default setting is the maximum, “50,” which might be fine in a brightly lit room. For viewing in a dark or dimly-lit room, try a value of “20.” 3. Disable Eco and Power-Saving Modes: Sony OLED TVs include settings that can reduce power consumption and energy costs. One feature is a light sensor that constantly measures the level of light in the room and automatically adjusts the image brightness in response. In a sun-filled room, the screen gets brighter, and in dim surroundings, brightness is lowered. Potential drawbacks include reduced peak brightness for HDR content, and inconsistent brightness overall. I recommend disabling Eco and power-saving modes. 4. Contrast: Picture contrast should be fairly high, especially if you expect to watch a lot of HDR-enhanced content. This OLED TV has superb contrast and black levels, and I suggest a value of “90.” You will also notice menu selections for automatic “enhancers” labeled Black adjust and Advanced contrast enhancer. These types of video processing aren’t really necessary for most high-quality TVs and signals, and in fact end up distorting the signal. I recommend turning these off. 5. Peak Luminance: TVs that can produce brief bursts of brightness do the best job of conveying the dramatic highlights of HDR content. If you plan to watch a lot of HDR-enhanced movies and shows, set this control to High. 6. Color/Hue: The factory default settings for Color and/or Hue are generally right in the middle of the available range and typically provide very accurate colors, so I recommend leaving them as is. 7. Color Temperature: The movie and TV industries produce content based on a color standard called D6500. This TV gives you several color temperature options to choose from, but the most accurate one is Expert 1. Sony also allows you to fine-tune the color temp using the Advanced color temperature control. You’d need pro-grade test instruments and a PC loaded with pro calibration software to improve on the accuracy of the Expert 1 setting. 8. Sharpness: For most 4K TVs, especially one as good as this Sony, Sharpness can be set to minimum. 9. Noise Reduction: This TV includes two types of noise reduction: Random noise reduction to control analog noise, and Digital noise reduction to deal with digital noise such as the compression artifacts you’ll sometimes see on streamed content. Another feature on Sony TVs is called Reality Creation. This is another picture-improving feature that may be effective for lower-quality signals. 10. Smooth Gradation: This feature is designed to smooth out “banding” -- the artificially layered transitions that sometimes appear in background elements like the sky. I usually suggest leaving this control off, but if you frequently see discrete bands instead of smooth gradations from shade to shade, experiment with this control. 11. Motion controls: There are two video motion issues that can be addressed by a TV’s motion controls. Motion blur is sometimes noticeable on high-speed action like sports. Judder is jerky motion often seen on side-to-side pans in movies. Sony’s motion control processing is called Motionflow, and it includes separate controls for motion blur and judder. Selecting the Custom setting for Motionflow gives you access to the most motion controls. The Smoothness slider lets you adjust the amount of motion blur, while the Clearness slider reduces judder through a process called “black frame insertion.” The Cinemotion feature provides additional judder control, if needed. 12. HDR Mode: Usually you’ll want to set this to Auto so that the TV will recognize the type of HDR encoding on each program – HDR10, Dolby Vision, etc. – and automatically adjust color and contrast accordingly. 13. HDMI format: If you have a game console or PC connected to one of the TV’s HDMI inputs, you should make sure that input will allow the widest possible signal bandwidth. Under the “Watching TV” tab, select External inputs, then select HDMI signal format, and change the format to Enhanced.
