Maybe the first mass market AV receiver that can do video calibration? Very interested to see if its broken, or correctly implemented!


"Firstly, its video performance is unrivalled. A dual core video engine design utilizes an HQV® Vida VHD1900 processor to upscale analog content to 1080p, with Qdeo technology taking full HD out to an eye-popping 4K. An ISF system calibrates video from all inputs to industry standards, and the resulting picture is spectacular."

The onkyo nr3009 and nr5009 along with their integra counterparts already have this feature.

This has been around for a while on Onkyos and Integras. The controls are pretty course; the only systems that can make good use of them are ones whose displays lack proper grayscale adjustments and any gamma adjustments, or systems that have one source that has an inaccurate video output that has to be adjusted to match other sources. If, for example, your display has no gamma selections or adjustments, and gamma measures 1.9 across the board, you can use this feature to bring the gamma closer to 2.2 or 2.4.

Thanks. That is a bit disappointing. I am not sure if ISF is doing the consumers any favours by certifying truck loads of devices with ISFccc controls, but then these controls in practice don't work as expected.

The consumer would then assume that if their ISF certified device calibrated by an ISF technican will bring them to reference level of imagery, but then at the end, they might get a bit disappointed, or worse, assume that what they are seeing is indeed reference level accuracy but its no way near.
