What is the official word on the break in period for my HDTV? E-mail
Tuesday, 25 November 2008
In the ISF seminars we used to express the 100 hour rule as a means of ensuring the display in question was issue-free and likely to stay in service after a considerable amount of work was elicited. In a manner of speaking, it was felt that after a 100 hour period, any problem would manifest and be corrected or the unit exchanged. hitachi42hdx99.jpgDepending on display type, it also represented a long enough duration for indigenous sections of the unit to initially "wear-in", whether it was CRT phosphor conditioning (or Plasma for that matter) or bulbs in lamp-based products to accumulate enough time to "season" and stabilize.

Should I buy an LCD or Plasma HDTV? Which is better? E-mail
Monday, 03 November 2008
lcdvsplasma.jpgShould I buy a plasma or an LCD flat panel HDTV? That is the question for many would-be HDTV buyers in today's flat panel dominated HDTV world. Plasma panels, or PDPs as they are referred to, are still considered by most display experts, me included, all things considered, to produce better pictures then LCD flat panel HDTVs. That, of course, is a generalization. Let's define it for the purposes of determining what is better for a particular application. Strictly speaking, if picture quality is the primary priority, then the best plasmas will outperform the best LCD panels. This is due mainly to the fact that the better plasma panels have superior black level performance, which in turn gives them greater contrast ratio. Contrast ratio is the single most important component of a video picture to the human eye. We refer to this as the "Snap" or "Pop" of the picture. Additionally, better black level performance also equates to deeper more saturated color.

downimag.gifThe Best of Times, The Worst of Times ....and other matters 

First the good news. Most of this readership is already experiencing it. More choices than ever before, in both hardware and software and at every imaginable price point. The confluence of the digital transition and the advent of high definition optical discs has every manufacture scrambling to get as many offerings under your nose as is humanly possible. The frenzy has undoubtedly launched some new companies (spin-offs) that are simply trying to capitalize on the moment. Opportunity spawns entrepreneurship and as the "" phenomena taught us in Silicon Valley, there are many more entrepreneurs than there are astute, well thought out business plans. Inevitably, there will be fall out which is Nature's way of saying; "You should have just invested in Yahoo". Survival of the fittest is generally a good thing, except for those holding the bag on non-upgradeable hardware......which gets us to the other side of the coin.

What sets TweakTV apart in the World Of Professional Calibration? E-mail
Friday, 24 October 2008
tweaktvlogo.jpg.pngSo you decided to have your display ISF Calibrated.  You've researched about the process, and even after visiting the ISF Website you still have a choice to make. 

Who do you call to calibrate the display? The guy at the big box store or a TweakTV Calibrator.  Since both are ISF Trained, what are the real differences that set TweakTV Calibrators apart?

olde_skull_bones.gifI think it is all fine and dandy that some big-box stores have entered the calibration market. This shows us that our efforts have made a difference in the field. And many will tell you that this is a good thing, as it will perhaps make calibration a household name and help customers understand that their TV can deliver a higher quality picture than what they get out of the box when it is first purchased.
