Do most of these calibrators do Front Projectors and flat panels alike or are they 2 different pieces of equipment and skills. And what is calibrated? I know my TV has different calibration settings for apps and hdmi inputs. And how in the world do they calibrate the cable box I would imagine that watching Avatar on Netflix from a cable box would look different than watching it on Netflix from a xbox just due to the components and settings in the cable box vs the xbox.

HTPC. Onkyo 636, Polk audio speakers and Klipsch sub. KHO-7 Outdoor speakers. Homeseer homecontrol over Z-wave.

Calibrating a projector requires more attention to ambient light than a flat panel and the low light limits of the meter. I modified a sensor in my setup that allows me to measure accurately to 1 IRE and it a also allows me to be less susceptible to ambient light contamination of measurements. Calibrating a projector properly requires a color meter that has a lens system to properly measure the luminance from the screen. I use two separate meters to achieve both of these goals.

The lower maximum light levels achievable with projectors versus flat panels requires different approaches than a flat panel to obtaining a quality image.

You also need to do a few more checks with a projector than a flat panel. These steps include focusing the image, geometric alignment, elimination of keystone correction, cleaning optics and cleaning the air filter. I advise my clients on the premature failure that can occur when filter cleaning is not performed as needed.

I also advise clients on changes that can be made to their room when it can significantly benefit their image performance. Room issues are much more common and complex with a projector than a flat panel.

Source device variations are better corrected in the device than the display. Many variations that appear to be device based are actually caused by the display or the movie data file. These can be isolated with quality test images and video generators. Individual source file errors can occur and are best avoided by using Blu-Rays when possible.

I have a few spots left for the Denver/Colorado Springs area during CEDIA. I am also looking at doing a short tour in the NYC area the week of September 30th for those in the area looking to have services done.

Fall/Winter tours will most likely include the Phoenix area and Texas, so if you're in those area and looking for services please reach out!

I have a lead for a calibration in Missoula, Montana. A little far for me from Florida! Any travelling calibrators planning on being in the area anytime soon?

Thanks!

I had mike come out and do my c7 oled in 2017. I highly recommend him. He takes his time making sure everything is up to his liking and plus talks u through on what he’s doing next. He doesn’t rush things and will answer any questions u have.
