- 2001 - ISF Certification (renewed in 2009)
- 2006 - Master of Science, Education
- 2009 - THX Video Calibrator Certification
A quick history: I worked in the A/V industry. I've been reading video theory since 1994, bought my first calibration laserdisc in 1996, and then jumped into calibrating when I acquired my first Philips Color Analyzer in 1999. For two years I calibrated dealer video displays until I received my ISF Certification in 2001. I have been actively calibrating for clients since then. I have always believed in educating my clients on the calibration process and the benefits of, which is why becoming a THX Professional Video Calibrator in addition to my ISF experience was a perfect fit.
Calibration Equipment & Software
- Konica Minolta CS-1000A spectroradiometer
- GretagMacBeth Eye-One Monitor spectroradiometer
- CalMAN ColorPro v5.6 calibration software
- Colorfacts v7.5 calibration software
- Accupel DVG-5000 3-D video signal generator
- ControlCal for Pioneer & ELITE displays: ISFccc [7G][8G][9G] and INSTALL KPM-500/600
- ControlCal for Panasonic ISFccc VT25/30 displays
I use the Konica Minolta reference lab spectroradiometer to make decisions when calibrating. It's the industry best for guaranteed accuracy/repeatability for all display devices and enables me to make better choices when evaluating the performance of your display device. With its spectral bandwidth of 5nm and 0.9nm pixel resolution, it's the meter of choice to measure all displays including LED, OLED, and laser-based displays which are proving to be challenging for most other meters on the market. Its also one of the few devices that has sensor cooling to improve S/N ratio enabling it to be highly accurate and reliable for low light readings, an area of measurement very few meters can continuously repeat with reliable results. Virtually all other meters are measured against/recalibrated to the CS-1000A for their accuracy.
