ISF Professionals who can calibrate the Pioneer 9G Non-Elites (PDP-5020FD/PDP-6020FD) - Page 3

A guy from the forum (droptheremote) already contacted me. I'll probably go with him.

Thanks for the help! I'm stoked about getting it calibrated. I'm a Florida Gator fan so hopefulle I can get it done before the NC game.

Can anyone recommend an ISF pro around Philadelphia for a 5020FD?

Also, what should I expect to pay for calibration? Ballpark is fine if that's a sensitive topic.

Thanks

How about the Seattle area. Heard so many good things about Robert Busch, that I emailed him yesterday. Unfortunately he has had no calls for this area in a while.

Can any calibrators out there inform me on what all is required to fully calibrate a 5020? I'm still a little confused and after reading posts on the ControlCal forums that the only thing that can be adjusted is the grayscale. I'm trying to figure out if calibrating a 9G kuro warrants the same fee from a calibrator as doing another set with more calibrations unlocked in the service menu.

Hello DevilDog151,

From what we know today, an interface is required to access the grayscale adjustments in the service menu, as well as access to the user menu. This will allow for the grayscale and user menu parameters to be adjusted properly. While there aren't as many adjustments, or memory options as the Elite model, the display does require a good deal of time in order to setup and access the factory menu system.

If you are basing your calibration fee on the time involved, the Elite's take longer than the non-elites, but it will also come down to how many sources are in the system.

Good Pictures!

Dave

It all depends on what you mean by "fully" - there's no video display I know of that can be "fully" calibrated. Even a $4500 Lumagen Radiance XD video processor, as nearly perfect as it can make just about any video display, has some "holes" that, if filled, would lead to an even better calibration.

What can be done with the 5020 is extremely helpful... but the only adjustments accessible with special software (that the calibrator has to purchase and make up the cost of in calibration fees) are 2 controls that adjust the grayscale. However, done correctly, the 5020 calibration will make some of the primaries and secondaries more accurate even though there are no accessible controls for them - it's just a lucky break that seems to be pretty consistent. The 5020 (and 6020) are amazingly good after this calibration. As already mentioned, having fewer adjustments doesn't necessarily mean a faster calibration. Doing a good 5020/6020 calibration usually takes just about as long as a calibration for some other displays that have more controls. Calibration is the only way to get the 5020/6020 color temperature accurate since none of the modes are close enough to 6500K to not be making the image too warm or too cool.
