My calibration with Chad B was a very positive experience. Chad arrived at my home for an evening appointment so that we could take advantage of a fully darkened environment for calibration. 6pm was still a little early this time of year so he decided to go grab a bite to eat and come back after sundown. This added a couple of hours to the overall time-frame but Chad wanted to get it right and I was fine with staying up late.
Chad walked me through his entire process, which involved doing completely separate calibrations for ISF Day and ISF Night vs just calibrating one mode and making Contrast/Brightness compensation for the other. I truly believe this resulted in near-perfect results for both Day and Night modes. Once those were dialed in, he tackled 3D mode using the Panny 3D glasses strapped to the JETI spectroradiometer. While I'm less critical about 3D viewing, the initial results look great and I'm really looking forward to watching a couple of my favorite 3D blu-rays this weekend.
Chad was meticulous and stayed until he was happy with everything, which meant he was at my house until 1am. ISF Day, Night, 3D were calibrated for HDMI 1 and then we copied those settings to HDMI 2 and validated that the settings were valid for the second input. Given the amount of time Chad spent on this, I would say that his price was surprisingly reasonable. I was expecting to pay more (but don't tell Chad) for this level of service.
I feel badly that Chad had multiple cancellations on this Texas tour and it likely will not be a money maker for him. If anyone reads this today and wants a calibration somewhere between North Texas and Ohio, get in touch with Chad! You will be glad you did.
I'll just post one or two graphs that show before / after:
