I was having a hard time finding a mounting solution for my i1 display pro that would allow me to point the meter at the center of the screen on my setup where there is equipment under the tv.


I found an adapter that will convert a mic thread to a camera thread that I just purchased. I also purchased a mic stand with boom arm. Below are the links to the products:

As you can see, these worked like a charm! Hope this post helps others in the same predicament.

I found this at a Sam Ash music store for about $12.00 dollars. I think the knob is a better solution, because you don't have to spin the meter around to screw it on. I find the cord on the i1 Display Pro a bit fragile delicate and twisting can damage it easily. The chrome finish also looks nicer

Funny i just bought the same adapter on amazon, along with the one one my 2nd post and will keep the one that has better build quality and is easier to adjust.

Excellent! I too use a boom mic stand. I use it especially for displays that are mounted up high and/or slanted. My main usage was for my i1Pro2 but I am glad to see one for the i1 Display Pro.


I also commend yo for the disclosure of the information as to where one may obtain one is they wish. There are some I have found have been only give half information and then you have to fight with them to get the rest.


Once again, very ingenious. Well done.

No problem man. Im always willing to share information that may help others. Glad its helped out a few already.

While we're at it, I put a level on mine to be sure that it's not somehow off kilter. I hold it on with a rubber band. http://www.lowes.com/pd_119471-1099-CCL001_0__?productId=1006341&Ntt=level&Ns=p_product_price|0&pl=1&currentURL=%3FNs%3Dp_product_price%7C0%26Ntt%3Dlevel%26page%3D1&facetInfo=


Do check your display because some will have a slight tilt back. Measure the tilt with the level and then set it up with meter attached with the offset.



I'm using this Digital Protractor Inclinometer Meter for Single or Dual Axis with Resolution of 0.01°, a very good solution

How did you attach it and where did you purchase it?


I'm placing to the screen and later above my meters, I'm moving my meters while I'm using their laser aiming system of JETI + Klein to keep them pointing to the same area of the screen while I'm tweaking their tripod.


BTW you can buy it from there .

After testing out both the above pictured adapter and the one from the below link, I decided to keep the latter. It's much easier to adjust and has a much better build - the all black looks cooler too. I'm using this only for microphone placement during audio calibrations, while the adapter in my initial post is solely used to attach the i1 display pro during display calibration.

This is my setup. You can move the complete set 30cm horizontal, each meter 10cm back and for and one in addition 10cm up and down.

Very good for profiling, because You can move the meters within a few seconds.







and this to align the meters to the TV.

Yes. The rails are macro focusing rail sliders for cameras.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2/177-2753398-6423008?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=fotomate%20lp-03


the long rail is the Fotomate LP-03

the 3 short rails are Fotomate LP-01


(there is also a LP-02 version with 24cm length)


+ two 90° mounting angles and some screws from our local hardware store.

total cost ~80€


looking at the prices @ amazon.com You should pay ~80$.


You can also check out this video to see how the rails work and fit together
