I am a retired engineering manager for Eastman Kodak company and have experience in several color management projects there. My passions since the mid 60s has included television and home theater. Retirement from Kodak has given me the opportunity to pursue these passions by offering isf calibrations to the Western NY (Buffalo, Rochester, Erie, PA) region.

I hold both isf and HAA certifications (January 2002) and utilize Chromapure and Accupel calibration equipment.

PM me for more information or call (585) 755-9209

He's also one of the most experienced in the business. That could also translate to old, but we won't go there.

Hello everyone,

I apologize for posting this here, but my search to find a good ISF calibrator for my Pioneer Elite PRO-1130 has been long and frustrating .... I've been waiting for nearly 4 months and nobody with the feedback and "vast" experience in my set has been available in my area in months, and thus, I thought I would give it a try in this thread...

I would like to know if any of you gentlemen, with experience with Pioneer's 6th Generation Elite's, particularly the PRO-1130, is available any time soon in South Florida (Miami/Ft Lauderdale)?

Specifically, I would like someone who has done the Pioneer Elite Special "ISF" day/night menus....I understand it requires special software and cables, and Pioneer Tech support has told me repeatedly that ISF calibration on this set is to be done on those menus only, and by an experienced individual in them.

I hope you gentlemen can give me some feedback...please feel free to PM me, or email me at:
shervin.sabripour@gmail.com

regards,

-Shervin

And if he can't help for some reason, the ISF is located in FL so I would give them a call directly if you haven't already? I'm sure they have some good recommendations.

If you would like, I can have Bob give you a call. I actually know Bob pretty well and he is a excellent calibrator. I know for a fact that he doesn't have the C3 calibration equipment. I have done about 9 Pioneer Elite Plasma using the C3 equipment and from my experience it works well. It depends on the client and the application if I use the C3 or do it manually. The day/night mode can be nice but most of my clients usually leave it in the day mode. The reason behind this is that the only difference between the 2 modes is brightness (black level) and contrast (white level) settings. To properly set each mode you need to be able to control room lighting. So unless you are able to make your room as dark as it is at night during the day it is hard to set the right black level and contrast. If you find a calibrator that is knowledgeable with your model they can do a great job without the C3 software.
