What's In It For Me? (WIIFM)

Why get a professional calibration?

  • Show full detail in the darkest and brightest parts of all scenes
  • Display is properly matched to your video system and viewing environment
  • See a sharper focused, full resolution image
  • Maintain accurate color balance at all picture light levels
  • Produce a full range of accurate colors, including flesh tones, grass, sky and sports teams
  • Have a cinema theater "film look"
  • Minimize picture artifacts (distortions)
  • Easier on your eyes and reduce headaches
  • Display lasts longer than display with factory default settings
  • Save on energy costs.

    What ? Save energy costs? How can that be?

    • Since manufactures don't know which product will be on display and which will be sold; the product leaves the factory with an overly bright 'torch mode' setting.
    • This configuration makes the product look better in-store and helps get it sold.
    • Once it's in your home, you need to properly adjust the display for your viewing environment.
    • The result of a correct calibration is a better quality picture and a lower electrical bill.
    • Some studies have shown a savings of $100 per year per display are achievable.
