I'm not calibrating until this COVID-19 is well behind us. Especially being in the 65+ group and just spent 2 weeks on a Princess cruise to Hawaii ....

So with Jeff being retired, I can’t find anybody that calibrates in Utah or that travels to Utah. Anybody have a reference for someone in Salt Lake to calibrate my tv? Obviously after this whole virus thing is gone and we are back to normal.

I did a remote audio calibration yesterday. I should be getting some YouTube videos up so people can help themselves or possibly do calibration with remote assitance.

How do you remotely calibrate audio ? Can Dirac 2.0 / Atmos be done this way with all pre pro ?

I can help anyone remotely with audio. I am no fan of DIRAC. I would strongly advise doing it manually over that tool, but it is much slower.

I did it using remote computer control software, TrueRTA, microphone, AVIA and Dolby Atmos September 2015 disc and the client’s assistance.

ARC is the best auto calibration software on the market at approximating what I would do manually for EQ except for it’s poor handling of crossovers that I can work around.

Setting up the subwoofer or multiple subs must always be done manually. Source problems must also be fixed manually.

Room acoustics can also be analyzed remotely.

I come out to Utah occasionally. I was just out there a few months ago. Once it is safe to travel again, I'm sure I'll be back through that area this year.

I hope all calibrators are following Vincent's example and self isolating. We don't need people traveling door to door right now.

I canceled my in home calibration this weekend and I suggest all other customers do the same.
I'm not traveling right now either. Not worth the risk to my clients or my own family. I am doing remote calibrations here for projectors, done a few over the last two weeks. Customer ships me their projector and I do the work here in my room using the same throw/zoom/screen material as they have. I make sure to wipe down the projector thoroughly with clorox wipes before I repackage (I use disposable gloves when handling as well). This has worked out great for a lot of clients so far, and no drama with shipping yet. I even do it with Lumagen's if the customer has one (they don't need to ship one, I use my test unit).

Perfect. When this is all done I’ll definitely contact you. Do you have a website I can view or can you message me your pricing? Thanks
