Displays are like 100% cotton t-shirts. Always buy a size larger than you think you'll need, as they tend to shrink over time.

Hello Folks - I have a new Mits HC6800 front projector that I just had put in about 2.5 months ago and have about 370hrs on the bulb at this time.

I am looking for someone in the Atlanta Area (I am north of Atlanta in Canton) to give me a quote to do a projector ISF calibration and potentially my sound system calibration at the same time.

Who is highly recommended in the area for this type of request?
I was wanting Jeff M. to do it but he wont be in the Atlanta area until September again. Anyone local or close by with Jeff's expertise?

Thanks in advance!!

I now have dates for my March schedule:

March 5 - Poplar Bluff, MO

March 6-7 - Memphis, TN area

March 8 - Fayetteville, AR area

March 9-11 - Dallas/Forth Worth area

March 11-12 - Houston area

March 13-15 - Austin area

March 16 - Lubbock, TX

March 17-18 - Oklahoma City & Tulsa, OK

March 19 - Wichita, KS

March 20-22 - Kansas City area

Note: When I tour, I travel by car, so in many cases I am able to take care of customers located somewhat "off the beaten path." I do charge more for travel if I am going more than 25 miles off the interstate, but I try to keep this surcharge reasonable.

FYI -- I still have one Chicago opening for this weekend (Feb 20-21). I'm also able to cover Northern/Central Illinois on Monday en route home (St. Louis).

You can contact me via eMail (doug AT clearlyresolved.com) or phone (314-226-1705).

Hello all

I'm Mike Osadciw (pronounced Oh-sad-chew). I've never introduced myself in this thread before but many of you have probably seen my name contributing to a variety of forums over the past 11 years.

Service Area
My primary service area is Ontario: GTA through Niagara.
My secondary service area cover Windsor through to Sudbury.

Canadian Tours throughout Northern Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, P.E.I., Newfoundland, Yukon Territory, NWT

Tour areas are announced on the forum.

Education/Experience

  • 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 v4.6 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 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.

Contact Information
To book a calibration, you may contact me by:
