If you want to get the most out of your AV equipment, you really need to get a video or audio calibration done to enjoy it to its fullest potential.
Too many people overlook the fact that professional TV and audio calibration is a must in order to get the most out of your new TV, speakers or projector. For TV’s and projectors this means you get the right skin tones, clarity and clarity from your picture, and for speakers and home theatre audio the right balance and positioning are essential.
First let’s understand what is involved in a video or audio calibration.
During home theatre installation, our trained technicians use special calibration equipment to fine tune your video and audio components.
For TV’s this includes adjusting the picture settings including contrast, brightness, backlight, sharpness, colour, hue, gamma and tint – to name a few.
When you receive your new screen, it will be configured either with factory settings or, if it was ever on display, with the settings input by the store. That means the settings will either be set to ‘zero’ across the board, or will have been maximised to contrast and ‘pop’ against the store’s bright fluorescent lights. In either case, the configuration is certainly not appropriate for a smaller, darkened room.
We specialise in the challenging one of TV colour calibration. In calibrating, we use our expertise and equipment to go beyond the industry standard of ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) calibration. We not only match the primary colours of red, green and blue, but also the secondary colours of cyan, magenta and yellow. Finally adjusting the grey scale, the result is the most lifelike colour reproduction possible.
The same applies to the audio that comes out of your speakers and home theatre receiver.
Even more misunderstood and ignored than TV calibration is that of audio calibration – unfortunate, since audio is 50% of the film viewing experience. This is far more involved than simply adjusting an equaliser. Our team use both hardware and software in order to perfectly set the frequencies of each speaker to provide the full range of sound, they also use sound pressure level (SPL) meters to measure the volume levels of each speaker at differing distances. From the information gained, we will adjust placement and bring the output levels of each speaker to the correct reference level.
Audio and video calibration can take 2-3 hours, depending how many AV devices you have.
