I understand your point,but,if the viewing environment is simulated based on a precise description...e.g.,luminosity measurements,then I assume that a decent calibration could be achieved.
You are right that the viewing environment can be set up correctly as part of your entertainment system design. Unfortunately, this is not taught much in the consumer video arena. Experienced professionals in the program production and post production portion of the video world know how vital the viewing environment conditions are for seeing the picture correctly. Here is a technical article that should help you in that regard: 'The Importance Of Viewing Environment Conditions In A Reference Display System.'
After reviewing that article you may contact me directly by e-mail if you need additional assistance.
Many self-described calibration hobbyists, and even some practicing professionals, ignore or diminish the very real impact of conflicting viewing environment conditions upon display performance. Even though this topic is covered somewhat in the formal calibration certification programs, not enough credence is given this side of imaging science. Every complete
calibration service should include recommendations for correcting conflicting viewing environment issues. A "perfectly" calibrated display cannot be perceived as providing a correct image if environmental characteristics interfere. Since calibration instruments only read light and not minds, viewing conditions must follow recommended best practices to compensate for the limitations of the human visual system.
