I'll be there for vacations, but I'm thinking of taking my i1 Display PRO to profile it (I don't know if the expression is correct) with a professional calibrator.

If someone is available, feel free to PM me.

Thank you.
I might be able to accommodate since I will be in FL this month. However, you'd have to have the same TV with you that you plan to calibrate, and it doesn't sound like you will since you'll be on vacation.

Hello, Chad.

Can't you compare the readings from my i1 PRO to a reference sensor - like one you probably use to do your calibrations -, and then compensate the errors my colorimeter has? I was thinking about doing that to a regular display. Just using a reference colorimeter to correct the error readings of my i1 PRO. When I come to my home, then I would use it to calibrate whatever I wanted knowing that it was more accurate than before.

I hope I'm not expressing what I want to say badly.

Thank you.

What part of Florida will you be in? Anywhere near Tallahassee?

All over from the keys to Tallahassee. I would be happy to accommodate.

Thank you.

I believe the errors would be different on different displays so it should be done on each individual display you intend to calibrate.

I believe what MrFury is talking about is a service that Jeff at Spectracal performed on my Gretag Macbeth Eye Beamer - earlier version of the I1 Pro I believe - shortly after my ISF Level II training. For a very reasonable price, he took it in and calibrated it up against his $25,000 Photo Research spectroradiometer and made it respond exactly the same way as the more expensive unit. As such, my Eye Beamer became fully realigned internally, using about the best reference meter on the market. Again, for a very reasonable price - a fraction of what the full 2 day Level II training cost each of us.

But I don't think this is something a calibrator can do for an owner on location. There is special software needed to accomplish this goal, I am sure, plus a special level of finesse and laboratory conditions - plus an eternal level of experience - which we calibrators really don't have access to. Jeff is an expert on such software and computers in general - his fingers were flyin' at that training! - and has the laboratory equipment and conditions, and knows the inner workings of calibration gear like nobody's business - so I really think the pod will have to be sent in for this realignment service, to where they actually do such things, if you want a realignment of your pod.

If you just want to observe the differences between your pod's readings and Chad's equipment's readings and chart them for use whenever you use your pod, I guess that would be a similar endeavor in some ways...

You'd want to do it only after Chad had completely calibrated your display, tho. And it would only be valid if your display is capable of a VERY linear grayscale, as in 10 step grade minimum...
