  • Pre evaluation of the viewing environment
  • Pre evaluation of the display device, projector, and cabling
  • Removal of the protective screen (where applicable)
  • Image centering
  • Minimization of overscan
  • Convergence alignment of three panel displays (where applicable)
  • Mechanical focus adjustments (as needed)
  • Cleaning of optics
  • Colorwheel phase adjustment
  • Contrast ratio optimization for increased dynamic range
  • Customized grayscales as requested for specific applications (i.e. 5400K/3200K)
  • Grayscale adjustment to D6500
  • Iris, gamma, and backlight optimization
  • Advanced color space otpimization for SMPTE C and HD standards (where applicable)
  • Redefining of front panel controls to allow for easy one-button return to calibration settings
  • Color decoder adjustment when possible
  • Computer generated report showing pre and post calibration settings
  • ISF C3 calibration for supported displays (i.e. Pioneer Elite Plasmas)

The following is a list of services provided for CRT technologies and usually includes one input signal type:

  • Pre evaluation of the viewing environment
  • Pre evaluation of the display device, projector, and cabling
  • Removal of the protective screen (where applicable)
  • Mechanical disconnection of SVM circuit
  • Image centering
  • Minimization of overscan
  • Correction of major geometry errors
  • Convergence touch up of all NTSC modes
  • Electronic focus adjustments
  • Mechanical focus adjustments
  • Cleaning of optics
  • Herman TLV Maneuver for applicable Toshiba sets
  • Grayscale adjustment to 6500 D Kelvin
  • Centering of front panel controls when ever possible
  • Adjustment of front panel controls from within the service menu
  • Color decoder adjustment where possible, either via service menu adjustment, EEPROM Reflashing (I2C Fix), or installation of a red push attenuator.
  • Lens striping, when required, to achieve a color temperature variation of less than 500 Kelvin.
  • Computer generated report showing pre and post calibration settings

Depending on the display device additional inputs may also be calibrated. These inputs include high definition (720p, 1080i, 1080p), S Video (480i), etc. These additional services may be requested at the time of the calibration. As your display device ages the color guns will wear. To maintain accurate color throughout the life of the display, it is recommended that the set be calibrated annually and after major component changes in your system. Please see pricing for subsequent work.
