Does professional calibration extend the life of a set? Will an LCD last longer than a Plasma? E-mail
Tuesday, 25 November 2008
blackandwhitepattern.jpgProfessional calibration on flat panel LCDs, can contribute to display device longevity when Contrast (White Level) is reduced and by default, heat is reduced. It is a simple yet misunderstood misnomer to say that one should choose LCD over Plasma because Plasma will inherit phosphor wear and "burn in". While it certainly could, and would if abused, LCD is not without its issues. Heat affects all electronics, and if an LCD flat panel is subjected to a prolonged static duty cycle (not within a viewing cycle of a single user's duration, but a "routine" such as the same channel with a banner as news or sports information channels utilize, say in a sports bar setting) then the transistors (more likely a surface mounted device) can fail prematurely.

What is the deal with the Datacolor Spyder TV? How does it compare with professional calibration? E-mail
Tuesday, 25 November 2008
spydertv-thumb.jpg"I have enough experience with the Spyder products, and other Datacolor products to definitively tell you that the Spyder product doesn't get much of anything correct in its suggested settings. For about $100 more you can get a professional to come into your home and do the job with a reference level meter like a Minolta CS200 or a Photo Research PR650. I have several clients who were quite angry when they paid $250 for the Spyder to find that they could do a better job with a test DVD, and then they hired me and essentially paid twice to get the job done - Kevin Miller:

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.
