This product contains 2 calibration files that will help you get a better HDR picture and understand picture controls on TCL C72 series LED LCD TVs. Calibration was performed on the 55C728 TV.

You will get two documents:

1. HDR picture settings that can be used for watching movies in Ultra HD 4K resolution with HDR and
2. HDR picture settings for playing games where the screen needs to be responsive

In both cases, calibration was done for HDMI limited range 4:2:2 YPrPb (component) signal, BT.2020 color space, SMPTE ST.2084 EOTF, HDR-10 and white point target D65. Dolby Vision and HDR10+ modes were also checked and recommendations are given in this document.


Settings are for reference only. There is no guarantee that they will give you the best picture which is in line with industry standards and suitable for your viewing environment (especially white balance, gamma and color management system settings that vary from unit to unit). If you want a guaranteed calibrated picture, hire a professional TV calibrator (for example with ISF certificate, more info at

Settings are applicable to all screen sizes and all variants of TCL C72 series from 2021 TV lineup.

It didn't work for me but it's cheap so why not try?

I tried to set up my TCL 43C725 QLED TV with your files, but it didn't fit for me.
Image was too "warm" and people's faces on live TV and on 4K or Dolby Vision Netflix seemed as "tanned". I tried to switch off the 2 and 20 points on white balance and it didn't work.
I set up my TV on my own, and I swtiched from CINEMA to STANDARD with -1 war colours. Now it's almost perfect.
Anyway your guide is brilliant and easy to follow.
And above all, quality-price ratio is good!
Just 10 euros for a couple of files...well, worth a try!

Great TV, but :)

The TV is good, especially bought on promotion. The picture quality is really good in case you play with the settings that Darko described. Minus to the TV, I can say that they are the only one USB port version 2. Not so good sound, Wi-Fi and LAN, I think they are only up to 100 Mbps. There are definitely bugs in the TV settings, but so far two updates have been released. It also annoys me that turning it on to output sound to external reciver should reduce the TV volume to 1 instead of turning it off.

Good picture settings

Thanks for the calibrated settings for this TV. I want to ask for common HD 4k video what settings do i use. Because on HBO Go most of the movies are 4K HD.
