I'm Chad B, ISF and THX certified video calibrator from HDTVbyChadB.

I live in Ohio, but I travel to many states (at least half the continental US). Primary service areas include but are not limited to OH, VA, PA, IN, MI, Chicago, etc.

I use the Jeti 1211 5nm reference spectroratiometer, C6 colorimeter, CalMAN Commercial, and I just got ChromaPure Pro. I've been calibrating professionally since 2002.

I also do audio calibrations, which is what brought me here.

Well, don't see any way to delete or edit older posts. That's a problem because I moved since entering my information in post #7 in this thread... here's the old #7 post updated with my new information...

Doug Blackburn
dB theatriCAL
California - San Francisco Bay Area
- Calibration of projection systems (front & rear) and flat panel video displays
- 2-D and 3-D calibration
- grayscale and color management system (CMS), 125 point LUT calibration for Lumagen Radiance processors
- gamma calibration when the available controls support "fixing" gamma)
- all current display technologies... plasma, CCFL/LCD, LED/LCD, DLP, projectors with lamp or LED lighting

Konica-Minolta CS-200 Chroma meter ($14,000 meter)
CalMAN Professional software (current version)
Video Forge signal generator with 2-D and 3-D test patterns

- ISF certification
- THX Video Calibration certification
- 34 years of experience developing and supporting professional imaging systems at Eastman Kodak Co. (retired)
- equipment reviewer for Widescreen Review magazine and Soundstage Network publications
- I'm a Lumagen Radiance XE 3D user and calibrate it frequently at home for use with different display products, so am very familiar with Radiance calibration

contact: [email protected]

Pricing: each calibration is different, but most calibrations are $325 for the first 3.5 hours plus $55 an hour after the first 3.5 hours. 3.5 hours is usually enough time to calibrate grayscale and CMS for 2-D video displays. Be aware that 2-D calibration has (so far) no effect on 3-D images. 2-D and 3-D are completely separate calibrations - as different as 2 completely separate TVs (except I don't have to tear down and setup again at a different location). Adding 3-D calibration usually adds 2-2.5 hours to the calibration ($110-$140 in addition to the $325 for the first 3.5 hours). I still do not get results from CalMAN's auto-cal feature that are as good as manual calibrations, so as of spring 2013 I am still doing manual calibrations in order to maximize image quality. At this time, auto-cal is leaving visible (to me) errors in spite of low measured/calculated errors. I do not get those errors when doing manual calibrations. Auto-cal is used for Lumagen Radiance 125-point LUT calibrations though... there's really no other practical option for that.
