There will be four units in the calibration category. The first two will be for those with "color blindness" and the second one will be focused for the home theater enthusiasts. The main thing that caught my eye is no longer the need for special meters and the maintance expense over time required. I hope to find out how this is accomplished, as normally special access is required to enter the adjustment functions hidden within service menus. The last two models are geared for higher end and for studio calibration uses and will not be mentioned at this time. A sensor will be used in place of calibration meters.

I could have saved a lot of time and money for calibration if I was color blind.

But,... what is this stuff?...

I'm curious but it makes no sense.

I must not read this right... there can't be a market for calibration gear for color blind people.... what is this stuff?

If this is sold to color blind people .... who's going to know if it really works?

Hi Brian,

Basically from my early understanding of this CB device it will allow those with CB to adjust the color from their "source" to correct the deificiency they experience from their source device. This device will be placed between source and display. I am not color blind so I cannot relate to what they experience with conventional video.

The auto-calibrator AC is geared toward the home video enthusiasts to tune up his own equipment not necessarily to the degree that a professional calibrator can spend hours achieving but an improvement no less. I still don't know at this point how that can be accomplished without entering service menus and such but hope to be receiving one in a few weeks. Two other models will be produced for the professional calibrator using his own high end meters and studio engineers.
