I work for a AV production company doing live sound, lighting & video & have reached a point where my company can't offer me any higher degree of training in video. I want to get a more in depth understanding of display calibration, resolutions, ratio's, formats, signal flow & more. I would really appreciate it if anyone here can help me find some online training or even list some books that are the standard or come highly recommended in the field.

Greetings...

Your post here has you in the right place to start..

I highly recommend you check out The Video Calibration Tutorial Series by Michel Chen (AVS user: Michael TLV) see Here

It sounds like you have no hardware/software at this point.. You may want to consider starting out as an Enthusiast and calibrate your own equipment (even many Professionals started this way).. I believe both the ISF and THX offer some form of online (even one-on-one) training, you can check into that if and when you want...

Another option is to hire one of the Professional Calibrators that also do education during their calibration of your displays... not all Calibrators do this and you can PM if you like for some more information.

Once you do decide to get a meter, I recommend you look at a Spectrometer, either used i1Pro Rev D or new i1Pro2 at the minimum.

The i1Pro Spectro is still used by many Professional Calibrators.

See why a Spectro here:

http://www.tlvexp.ca/2012/04/do-calibration-tables-really-work-for-tri-stim-devices/

Also, post questions here on this forum and search through the many forum threads here... there is a wealth of information and plenty of Professionals around.


Feel free to PM me as well if you have any questions..

You could start out with an I1 Pro meter (since you do plan to go Professional) and software, start working on your own Displays, searching for information on the specific display model(s) you have etc... you can ask questions here in regards to your calibration runs.

Some more links for you:

I recommend you start as an enthusiast/part time PRO.. if you feel you will jump in immediately (with your own business) and make a good full time income, you will most likely be disappointed as many have found out.
