Calibration by remote control and telephone. is possible?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
greetings to the entire forum.

I would like to ask you a question about a calibration system that I have offered to calibrate my projector.

i have offered remote calibration cromapure installed on my computer and enter into my computer remotely to perform the calibration. This professional calibrator send me a spyder III colorimeter profiled x-rite display 3 colorimeter.

the customer an active part during the calibration process, and through telephone communications professional calibrator will indicate the steps to take and what adjustments must be made entering our home computer.

The question is.
You can do this type of calibration and optimal results?
Is it right to mail a Spyder III that has been previously pefilada by D3 colorimeter?
Or this may be a hoax?

thank you very much

Do you have ChromaPure yourself or is the calibrator sending it to you with the meter (or emailing ChromaPure and License)? confused.gif

The Spyder III is profiled to a i1Display (another colorimeter)? confused.gif

The professional calibrator sends me e-mail chromapure and license file.

Yes, Spyder III already been profiled. Spyder III colorimeter Express Mail sent. Previously professional calibrator is profiled with colorimeter X-Rite display 3 before mailing.

This type of calibration is correct?

This is what I have offered in Spain

Thank you.

NO.
First off, you profile a colorimeter against a spectro, neither the spider or D3 are spectros. Second you profile off the display you are calibrating so the person would need you to ship him your projector. Even the same model projector could have two very different lamps making the profile from one no good for the other.

It is possible that by this particular calibration methodology to obtain optimum results?

excuse my english

Thank you

I agree that this doesn't make much sense and that a normal professional calibration done with a spectro and colorimeter is the right thing to do (unless you want to do it yourself and are willing to buy the necessary meters and software and spend hundreds of hours learning how to properly calibrate your displays).

+1, exactly. You need a spectro to use as the reference when profiling and the profiling must be done on the actual display being calibrated for it to have any real value. Also, I don't think you can have a 'pro' do a successful calibration via remote control and telephone. I would question the credentials of any 'pro' calibrator who claims such a thing is possible or ideal.

no, you'd be better off doing it yourself if a normal pro calibration is not possible or affordable

In that case, I'd avoid it and try looking elsewhere.

Offered free?... Sounds like a strange but maybe very kind offer.

Free may be better than nothing. Otherwise, sounds like a headache.

Not free.

The price is 120 USD per calibration.

Well,

I say heck no.

Get a used meter that works with the free HCFR and the enjoy learning.

What you describe had a great chance of not working. Calibration is pretty difficult and over the phone,... No way.

I'm sure you have better options.

Thanks for your answers. Seeking for other options.

In their responses is completely obvious that this type of offering and methodology is not appropriate for calibration.

thank you.

Nice,

I own a older sxrd model vw60. The model I have needs calibration as the defaults are crazy but I believe the model you have is much closer from the factory.

If I were you and wanted to spend under $200 and still get it calibrated, I would get a used i1 pro from eBay or the new colormunki colorimeter and then use free hcfr.

There's some learning either way but odds of success are much higher.

Plus, owning a pj you want to have the tools and know how so you can recalibrate at least every six months or so as the bulb ages.

Your other path may be to have it done and maybe you can find a calibrator or enthusiast near you.

Hello, I belong to forums and messing Spanish also comes from this place.
I think it is good that both parties read the plot and all draw their own conclusions.

Specifically, our friend Diego hammer in the Spanish forum, called "UHD"

a hug

PD: Diego, I agree that there are ways of using these to discredit a fellow that neither you nor I will come. Support you in thoughts by private courier, but this is already out of hand.
