Hiring The Right Video Calibration Technician Print E-mail
Written by David Abrams   
Saturday, 19 December 2009

As HDTV displays become increasingly popular, more people are starting to realize that a video calibration is needed to attain maximum picture quality and value from their investment.

Performing your own video calibration.

 

The most accessible option would involve purchasing a test DVD that would assist in setting up a home theater system. We recommend the Digital Video Essentials (DVE) SD, HD DVD, and Blu-ray home theater calibration DVDS created by Joe Kane Productions (JKP) that include unique test patterns that are particularly useful for today's digital displays.

pioneerpro-1410hd.jpgFor some time now, there has been an ongoing debate on the various home theater forums regarding the proper break-in time for plasma displays. This has been especially true concerning the recently released Pioneer ninth generation (9G) plasma panels. Many have argued that the old 100-hour rule for CRTs no longer applies and that 150, 200, and even 300 or more hours is necessary for these new displays.

ISFccc vs. Pure Mode on Pioneer 9G plasma panels Print E-mail

pioneer pro-111fd.jpgWith the advent of the ISFccc (Imaging Science Foundation Certified Calibration Configuration) menu found on a select few high-end video displays, calibration technicians no longer have to sift through a plethora of sub-menus and parameters in search of specific picture controls. Instead, all that are needed to fine-tune a display are conveniently stored in one or two locations. The ISFccc menu also affords more flexibility and finer adjustments, which can be beneficial for certain video systems.

sony40xbr700.jpgBack in 1994, the majority of people were still viewing analog CRT direct-view TVs under 35". The medium of choice to watch movies at home was on videotape or cable TV. Movies were never viewed in a letterboxed format because most viewers didn't like the top and bottom of the image cropped. The picture was adjusted until it looked "normal" in their moderately lit room and one or two speakers in the TV provided the sound. Despite their basic setups, these individuals were generally content with their home entertainment systems because to them it was good enough.
