Why Calibrate?

Think about it… Who would buy a musical instrument & not have it professionally tuned? Even a Steinway or Stradivarius needs tuning. The same is true of TVs, projectors & audio systems. And yet there are thousands of amazing TVs, projectors & audio systems in UK households which have never been set up properly! Even the most expensive and luxurious home cinema can be let down by a poorly set up TV, projector or audio system.

Take Your Home Cinema To The Next Level

Our expert calibrator, Dr Julian Scott, will ensure that your TV or projector or audio system is performing to its maximum potential.

OPTIMAL CONTRAST & BRIGHTNESS

Using reference signals and professional measuring equipment our calibrator will set brightness and contrast correctly, making sure that there are no subsequent colour shifts and or white clipping/black crush. Lumen output will be set correctly so that extended periods of viewing do not cause eye fatigue.

FULL DISPLAY RESOLUTION & SHARPNESS

Our technician will ensure that your TV or projector is displaying the full resolution of images and will set up your display for optimal sharpness.

THX/PVA CERTIFIED VIDEO CALIBRATION

Our calibrator is a fully qualified THX Video Professional (Levels 1, 2 & 3), Cedia Member and PVA (Professional Video Alliance) certified (levels 1, 2 & 3).

ACCURATE COLOURS

We will ensure greyscale errors on your device are as low as possible as this is critical to an accurate image. We will also manipulate your display’s colour and tint controls or (if present) the colour management system (CMS) to ensure that colour errors are as low as possible. Gamma will also be set as close as possible to reference levels.

DAY & NIGHT SETTINGS

Our technician will calibrate as many inputs as necessary and, where possible, provide day and night settings for viewing in controlled and ambient light conditions.

SETTINGS RECOVERY

Following the completion of your calibration you will receive records of your TV/Projector’s new settings – so rest assured, you can recover your calibrated settings should they be wiped or altered be accident.

Frequently Asked Questions

My display is one of the best on the market! Why does it need calibrating?

Manufacturers typically preset their TVs to look as bright and colourful as possible so that their product stands out in the brightly lit show room. However, this does not make for an accurate or optimal picture quality. The need to have your TV or projector calibrated becomes even more apparent when we consider that all movies and TVs are produced to a clear set of industry standards – Rec 709, D65 for high definition material. If your TV or projector isn’t precisely reflecting these standards then you aren’t seeing the picture ‘as the director intended’!

How much does a THX/PVA certified display or HAA audio calibration cost?

Our bespoke THX/PVA certified calibration service is available for a flat fee of £285.00 per display. Discounts are available for multiple displays & for repeat customers requiring full initial calibrations (which in the case of front projection systems also applies to new bulbs). There may be a small additional amount to cover travel expenses. Audio calibration costs vary according to the equipment involved. Please contact us for a quotation.

Will my TV or projector need to recalibrated at a later date?

Since displays naturally drift over time from their calibrated state it is recommended that your display is periodically re-calibrated. A tune-up such as this is recommended for TVs after 1000 hours or 12-16 months and can be performed for just £145. Re-calibration of projectors with UHP bulbs is recommended every few hundred hours as they drift relatively quickly compared to flat panels.

What happens if I accidentally erase the calibrated settings?

Following the completion of your calibration you will receive records of your TV/Projector’s new settings – so rest assured, you can recover your calibrated settings should they be wiped or altered be accident.
