I love Image Director by the way,... very useful for calibration.
I had my Black Pearl calibrated by Chuck Williams today. He turned off the Iris and RCP, hooked the projector up to his computer, Eye One, and signal generator, and proceeded to dial in a stunning picture. He's two for two with my business.
Though we couldn't get Image Director to load on either his Windows Seven or my Vista laptops. The Read Me files state that it won't work on all computers for some reason. The Install button stays grayed out, without affect when clicked on. My gamma is a little low, but acceptable according to Chuck. I looked around the web to download a copy, without success. Any thoughts?
I'm really pleased with having it properly calibrated. It's the feeling of knowing things are accurate, and dropping all the second guessing I do with my own settings based on my eye with test discs and filters, and settings I grab from forums on the net. Colors are sweet, not over or undersaturated, and even red, which has been trouble for me, looks right. Black levels are very nice, with plenty of detail. Gray scale is perfect.
