Can anyone recommed a good calibrator in the San Jose, CA area? Actually I'm a little south in Morgan Hill.

I've got a 82" Samsung QLED.

Tried to have it calibrated by Geek Squad but he was only able to do the BT.1886 color space. The TV automatically switches to ST.2084 when it sees HDR content but I guess the BB guy wasn't able to generate the proper signal to get the TV to switch over?

Boston area calibrator?

Hello! Is there a calibrator in the Boston area who could help me to properly level my Mitsubishi HC-5500? I'm in the Brookline Village area, on the Green Line, just a few minutes outside of Boston.

I tried Huntington Systems in Newton, and they said they no longer do this kind of thing, especially for an old projector like my Mits.

No audio work necessary, I'm just having some trouble getting the black levels and contrast set up correctly, and figured paying an expert for an hour of work to get it set up right would be a worthwhile investment.

Many thanks in advance for any help or recommendations you can offer!

Let's Devise a Better Way to Locate Calibrators

Guys, I hate to be that guy, but...reading through these posts, watching everyone stumble around in the dark asking if someone knows of a calibrator in such and so location, it seems so inefficient in the digital age.

Certainly I understand that this thread originally was created to make things easy—list calibrators in one place. But, frankly, the length of the thread and its flow makes it incredibly cumbersome to identify the right person in the right place on the quick.

Why can't we/AVS just create an updatable spreadsheet that lists the phone, email and website info for any legit (ISF/THX) calibrator in all 50 states/Canada/Mexico?

Not something to be embedded in a long discussion thread, but something easily clicked on by those in the market for a calibration. In and out in seconds rather that clicking through dozens of pages of threads or sending out feelers for who's available and where.

No doubt this would be good both for calibration vendors and prospective customers.

Thanks for listening to my rant. Would love to hear your thoughts.

PS: I'll also post this to the site's management, see if that gets us anywhere.

Calibrators like to post their touring schedule in this thread and there are Calibrators without Certifications who offer their services.

There are Calibrator Lists here:

Thanks for the info and link, turbe.

However, I just think this proves my point. The calibrator info is scattered and often quite old. (Unless I'm mistaken, that Control Cal list was generated 10 years ago and focuses on the calibration of plasmas.)

It just seems to me that a site such as AVSForum, a bastion of AV purists, should have an easily accessible, up-to-date spreadsheet of qualified ISF/THX/PVA calibrators that won't get buried under page after page of replies and comments.

Just sayin'.

Cheers.

I keep my list updated when I'm notified/confirmed about a Calibrator and both Joel and Gregg Keep their lists updated (I think Gregg is updating the PVA list and not the THX list now).

Pennsylvania?

I'm looking for a reputable calibrator that covers eastern PA - Allentown to be exact. I had my last display calibrated by David Abrams of Avical but they no longer cover this area.

I should be in that area visiting for a couple weeks sometime in the summer if you still haven’t gotten anyone.

I am taking a week of vacation in Boston following Axpona, and am available for calibrations the week after Easter. If you are along my route back to Indiana, I can probably accommodate you. PM or email me if you are interested.
