I am also looking for a ISF calibrator here in Las Vegas, but none of the companies shown on the ISF website for Las Vegas no longer calibrate! Wow! They all are like, "We've stop calibrating TV's. So I was hoping that when CES came in January that I could find a Tech that was in town for the show would be interested. I am awaiting delivery of a JVC HD56FH96 (LCOS). Thanks.

I understand, and yes he is. Unfortunately, despite my request for him to do so, (hehe) he has not posted on this thread. His user name is D6500Ken. PM him and see what you can work out. I assure you that he is worth every penny.

Well if anyone is interested in calibrating a JVC LCOS set while in Las Vegas at CES in Jan. Please contact me, I would be very appreciative, thanks! That is if JVC can start getting their new 1080p's out in the pipeline.

You can can always search ISF's website for a calibrator in your area. Go to www.imagingscience.com and use the Dealer/Tech locator.

If I get two people to do calibrations on I will certainly then put in my reservation to go to CES this year.

I was on the fence as to whether I'd attend this year, but if you can't find anyone else in the area let me know and I'll make the reservations to attend and set up cals for you guys in the Vegas area. I just don't want to step on anyone else's toes who is in that area, so try them first.

Let me know ASAP so I can make the proper reservations and airline tix.

If a number of you want a calibration in the Vegas area and are willing to wait for more to sign-up, it would be possible for me to make the drive and split the travel charges. I currently have one wanting/waiting for a calibration in the Vegas area, however it is not cheap when there is just one paying for the calibration and travel.

You can e-mail me with your details to see what we can put together. Glen@ISFHT.com

I am not sure if I will be attending CES, it's a lot of walking to put on a recently broken ankle!

Dave Harper was kind enough to drive up to Westchester County from Pennsylvania and spend all day calibrating my LCDs. I am putting in a recommendation for Dave. He did a great job and stuck through dealing with my hum lines.

Thanks Dave!

Sorry for not posting earlier, I have been extremely busy this week. I just had my built in av center put in this last weekend, and was routing and mounting my surround four speakers, lots of attic time(but am done now!!). TV Authority called and confirmed delivery of my JVC HD-56FH96 for this next week. So if Glen Carter or Dave Harper will PM me, to tell me a price, and what is entailed, that would be great. Thanks.

As I said, if I get at least three people I will make my plans now to head to CES to service you all.

Let's try to keep this all in PMs now as this thread's getting too off topic.

Does anyone know of a highly reputable and reasonably priced ISF calibrator in the North Chicago Suburb area?

I have a Sony, 1024x1024, Model - KDE42XS955. I contacted ABT Electronics and they said it would run $500.

Thank you for any help...

Any calibrators in the Boise area? I have the Samsung HL-R5067W and the couple I've called do not calibrate DLP's. Any help would be appreciated.

I am heading down there in the very near future to do two other clients if you want to piggyback with them?

Chuck Williams is also in that area, but if he's not available give me a shout.

Does anyone know of a calibrator in Kansas? I live in Wichita and there are only two listenings for calibrators on ISFs website. One of them only calibrates what he sells and the other is out of business. There are a few more listings near the KC area and I contacted one so far and he wants $450 to come and calibrate. I have a 42" Panasonic plasma TV.

I'm looking to get a 34xbr960 calibrated. I saw a few posts about people possibly coming into town during CES. Between them and the places from the ISF website, is there anybody that people would recommend in the Las Vegas area.

Anybody that cover the Montreal area?

I have a GWIII (KF50WE610), and a ROTEL RSX1056 and speakers that I would like to calibrate/position also if possible?

Thanks,

Generally disappointed with the state of HD, started with the late arrival/poor quality of broadcast, followed by the HDMI/HDCP fiasco, and still sustain by the late & poor entry of media/players.

Thanks.
