For those with high expectations from their video, we provide THX and ISF calibration , which requires an access to advanced or to service menu.
We use one of the best test equipment to accurately calibrate your display:
What actually is display calibration:
Why Calibrate Your Video Display?
You just spent your hard-earned money on a new home theater video display.
So, why is the grass blue? Why do all the faces look sunburned, and why don't sports jerseys look the right color? Why don’t DVD movies look like the cinema version?
Don't panic, there is an easy solution. If you have your display professionally calibrated, to industry standards, you can enjoy the full quality capabilities of your new (or older) TV, monitor, or video projector.
"How much difference would it make to have my TV, monitor, or video projector calibrated?"
When TV programming is produced, or a film is converted to video or DVD, the process is precisely controlled to industry standards (NTSC, ATSC, and SMPTE) by monitoring the programming on correctly calibrated displays. A great deal of effort and expense is invested to be sure that the picture light levels and image colors are processed properly at every step of the way. You can accurately reproduce the full, original quality of those video programs in your home only if your video display is calibrated to the same industry standards.
Your display, the final
step in that precisely calibrated distribution system, can do full
justice to that high quality video signal. It can give you picture quality
approaching, or even exceeding, that of the local cinema theater. But, more
often, a mis-calibrated video display mangles the picture miserably. Remember
how different all those TVs looked at the store, even though they were all
receiving the same program? The difference wasn't so much the different quality
of the various models as it was the non-standard adjustment of each display.
A properly calibrated home theater display:
My colleague from ISF forum prepared nice presentation. Please look at it here:
But when he installed it, the technician said he adjusted it for best performance. Besides, wouldn't I be voiding my warranty?"
Not at all. Most installing technicians simply adjust the display to "look right," and don't calibrate it to any specific standards. Often, once the system has aged over a few hours of normal operation, it looks quite different. In fact, manufacturers realize that optimum performance and maximum life expectancy of your system can be realized only when it is professionally calibrated after a "burn in" period of about a hundred hours of normal operation.
The manufacturer doesn't calibrate the display at the factory for the best possible picture in your home because they want the display to look as appealing as possible (brightest) next to competing displays on a dealer's showroom floor. Since a showroom floor often has a high ambient light level, the manufacturer usually sets the brightness, contrast, and service controls for the highest “apparent” light output.
Even if the manufacturer had spent more time setting each adjustment 'just right' on every display, according to industry standards, that would greatly increase what you had to pay for your display, and many of the adjustments would still have been incorrect after it was installed in your home, due to the effects of shipping, initial aging of your display, and the lighting effects of your particular viewing environment.
"So how can I get my video display looking the best it can?"
Simple! If you have your video display calibrated to be just as accurate as the professional displays that the artists and engineers used to monitor the picture at every step of the way as the video was created, transferred from film, broadcast, or cut to DVD, you can see the same beautiful pictures and true colors that the artists and professionals see. We will precisely calibrate your display’s user controls (brightness, contrast, color, hue, sharpness) and service controls (white balance, SVM, color decoder, focus, geometry, etc.) to industry standards, using a suite of precision calibration tools.
Video display calibration is recommended by: Home Theater Magazine, Audio Video Interiors, Widescreen Review, Stereophile's Guide to Home Theater, The Perfect Vision and Sound & Vision magazines for the best picture a display can make!
Share the artists' vision. Have us calibrate your display to professional standards and put the “WOW!!” into your home theater.
