I will be in your area in September. Please go to my website for more information www.accucalhd.com. You can also contact me from there. I highly recommend my audio service if you have a surround system. You should read my client reviews www.accucalhd.com/reviews. Assuming you will get similar results from everyone is a mistake as well.

Need a calibration in Nova Scotia, canada

Hey folks,

Does anyone know anyone who can do an ISF quality calibration in Nova Scotia Canada. I have a JVC x500 now and a buddy of mine may want his Epson 10000 done in the fall timeframe. Thanks

Understood, too bad because today's fixed pixel displays don't need to be set up critically on their image structure, like in the old days of CRT. Having Jeff do it and send it back to you takes care of it, unless your screen produces a different color tonality than his. You may have to send him your screen also, then it's taken care of.

It's really hard for an American calibrator to go up to Canada and do calibration work there. Your border patrol is a lot more stringent than ours is. If they find we are going up there for calibration work, they get stopped dead at the border, as it would be taking money out of the pockets of Canadians.

Guess how I found all that out?...

PS - Try Michael Chen, I believe he's in Calgary. He's one of the founders of the THX calibration.

I have screen material samples for a variety of screens and can obtain more if needed. My client satisfaction with this has been 100%.

Thanks!

I am going to be in Vegas August 23, at this point leaving again late the 25th. I would be glad to do a calibration or 2 while there and am free to extend my visit if needed.

I specialize in CRT technology - direct view, front projection and rear projection (self-contained CRT RPTV) - and also calibrate flat panels and other projection modalities like DLP (single and triple chip), LCOS, SXRD, D-ILA and Light Valve.

Double stacked CRT projectors are very powerful and deliver some of the finest contrast ratios available, far surpassing the contrast ratios of most of today's backlit and lamp driven devices. See the Screenshot War!!!!!!!! thread for examples.

Screenshot War!!!!!!!!

Only OLED surpasses CRT in contrast ratio, but to date OLED is still in its infancy for production models and AFAIK is limited to flat panels and head visors. Nothing I know of surpasses a CRT double stack in projected contrast ratio. Except of course a CRT triple stack (which yes, has been done!).

Multi-CRT projection (Barco) is used in the Portland OR Planetarium at OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry). Nothing beats it for showing stars and constellations against crystal clear black night sky. This translates to completely/faithfully captured shadow detail and spaciousness, in home theaters.


I want to see CRT continue to remain in service for what it can do and kept alive indefinitely, rather than simply replaced as a matter of course by profit motivated integrators who want to come in and say "Out with the old and in with the new" and sell their owners all new equipment. CRT tech is like tube audio - it is deep and pure and lasting forever. It shows no signs of letting up on that longevity. And its HD has depth and palpability that many of the fixed pixel devices out there today can only dream of.

My job is to bring out the best in your modality, whichever one it is. Including fine tuning your audio system to silky smooth performance. Audio is half the battle in home theater and should not be left to chance.

Jeff Meier has been calibrating my home theaters every time I get new equipment for the past 5 years or so, and I unreservedly give him the highest possible recommendation. Both my audio and video quality are dramatically improved after he has completed his calibrations. You will not be disappointed after he is done. Do not hesitate to contact him if your system needs calibrating.

Had Jeff out to my new home in April to calibrate the family room with a 5.1 setup and was amazed with his work. The basement theater is ahead of schedule and I have him set up to come take care of my 7.2 system in the theater. Besides great calibration I used his consulting services and he helped save me a good deal of money with equipment. He is a class act and both my wife and I enjoyed his company. Looking forward to seeing you in September when you come back to Illinois!
