Any calibrators between Winnipeg Manitoba and Thunder Bay ontario?
Looking to get a calibration soon and no one available round here.
post #185 of 3100
Hmm...Don't see my original listing, so here it is again (with updates).

THE REAL PICTURE is based in Scottsdale, Arizona and conducted by Michael Hamilton.

I participated in one of the first ISF trainings, held in 1994. As a result of the relationships forged, I have been a seminar assistant since the late 1990's.
In Spring of this year, the ISF has developed a partnership with Datacolor, and an ISF Seminar series, sponsored by Datacolor has been touring the country. I am co-instructor with Lion A/V partner Gregg Loewen for this series.

The Real Picture calibration tool kit is too extensive to list here, however the same familiar accomplices are there:

Minolta CS-200 Colorimeter (essential for the new CMS - Color Management Systems - that display manufacturers are starting to implement into their products) and all Datacolor pickup devices (Lion A/V is a consultant to Datacolor)

Quantum Data 802b and 403b signal generators

All calibration discs known to man and currnetly available in the Free World

Pioneer of the trend to use the Sony PVM 96 as a reference tool for checking instrumentation (including sending my instruments in regularly for NIST re-certification) and as a live-feed Optical Comparator (retiring the original ISF Optical Comparator)

Sony PHM-14M8U HD SPMTE-C Phosphor Reference Color Monitor

Experience includes:

All CRT front projectors (except Ampro...if there are any still in use)

All other display types (including all ISF C3 enabled displays by way of Colorfacts)

The Real Picture is Runco's Southwest Technical Representative and the only authorized Runco warranty repair station in Arizona

Not sure what else to add...if you can suggest anything, I welcome all comments!

Joe, I tried to send you a PM but apparently your inbox is full.

I'm in St. Louis and I'm currently working on pulling together a trip to Chicago, working with a couple of other area residents who haven't been able to find anyone locally. If you'd like to discuss this further, send me a private message or call me at the number below.

Try PMing Ken Whitcomb (D6500Ken). He is based out of Indy, but should have no trouble going to Chicago (depending on his schedule).

Can anyone recommend a quality/reasonably-priced calibrator for a Samsung HL-S5087W in the Chicagoland area?
post #195 of 3100
What do you consider "reasonably priced"?
post #196 of 3100
My name on this forum is DCDan. I am certified, experienced ISF calibrator serving the DC Metropolitan area and beyond.

I will do almost any kind of display including (but not limited to) CRT front projection.

For more information see our website which I will post here as soon as I am allowed.

In the meantime, the company name is Infinite Sight and Sound. The URL is what you would expect.

Please call for any A/V calibration or installation requirements.

I guess I am asking what folks on these boards (who know more than I) consider reasonably priced, as well. I'm looking for a reliable calibration specialist (around Chicago) who provides a good value for the price of the service.

The Samsung sets, with their very wide Color Gamut, require specific sensors to accurately calibrate the Color Management System. That does not mean that entry level equipment can't be used for some items, but those sets do require upscale devices for reliable adjustment of the Primary and Secondary Color Management.
In this vein, you might not find someone who is suitably equipped to price their services the same as someone that is just starting out, with entry level equipment, who will charge less just to earn their way out of instrument debt.

A calibrator with suitable equipment, would likely charge between $425-$475 for your set, in that it does take a modicum of time to fully calibrate (compared to the current Mitsubishi DLP sets which have a scant few adjustments in the Service Menu).

Hope this helps, and good luck. Gregg Loewen and Eliab are currently touring, and both have the correct equipment for your set.

Actually, it is not a sales pitch, just a fact regarding the new displays and the form of light they emit. Joe Kane stated that "you cannot accurately calibrate one of these displays without a spectroradiometer." Because of this very situation, I am looking into investing some serious dollars into new test equipment because my $5K color analyzer doesn't work all that well on the Samsung, among others.

It is interesting how so many construe accurate information as a sales pitch.

I have seen this for a while. A spectroradiometer alone does not solve the problems either. I have seen numerous jobs done with Minolta CS-200's and PR-650's that were hosed. Those devices have their limitations and used incorrectly will not give accurate results either.
