Nice Buzz! I have to watch on break at work on a laptop. :crying: If I wasn't working, I'd probably be there.
You missed it. My daughter from Eagan could have brought you over as she's here this weekend. C'mon over tomorrow - free beer then. lololol
For VE: You need two mics. First, an area mic, live at all times and don't have it too close to any particular individuals. Secondly, the main mic, spring loaded for audio. Tonight's Shootout was stuffed with comments and a little profanity which was not appreciated, all due to a hot mic. I know, they're calibrators, not TV personalities, but....
Don't tempt me Buzz! :eek:
Any time. We've talked about this before but I'd be happy to give you a free calibration next time I'm in the MSP area. My granddaughter demands that I be there often. :)

Edit: I don't calibrate to put food on the table....
I never should have bitched about Kevin's hot mic yesterday. I think they tried to fix it and wound up with a streaming mess. :(
They had multiple audio signals and we couldn't understand a word. It's fixed now.
Thanks for the audio fix, Robert. It was much better than ever before. ;)
The girl on the rope with the striped shirt is content from the FPD Benchmark Software disc (QVD-1002B). I don't know if this 2008 disc is still available but HERE is a good synopsis of it's content.

I use the rope, swing, and resolution patterns regularly for calibrating.
It's fairly rare and I don't think it was ever for sale.
