    Looking at the other calibration discs theyre v expensive for what they are so I thought I'd give making one myself a bash.

    It will have to be in VCD format which I can burn on the comp with nero.

    Video Calibration

    Seeing as I use RBG, colour is not adjustable so I need the correct image to calibrate brightness and contrast only (and perhaps sharpness). What image is usually used to calibrate brightness etc. for pal sets?


    Audio Calibration

    I beleive white noise is usually used for this, problem is how can I create 5 separate audio tracks, each one playing white noise from each speaker? I presume it will have to be dolby digital or possibley mpeg audio, what can i use to create these?


    Anything else I need on the disc?


    Many Thanks

    Dom.


    *edit* hmm looks like I'm stuck with 2 channel audio on the vcd, spose I can flip the interconnects round on the amp using a 2ch mix.

    bump.

    What type of noise is used on the proper calibration discs, white or pink noise?

    For a tenner you can get Video Essentials at www.ezydvd.com.au

    I'm thinking you may save yourself a lot of time and effort on something that may not be of too much use...

    Jonny: this is the exact link

    http://www.ezydvd.com.au/item.zml/552

    The list it as Ultimate Dvd Platinum rather than Video Essentials, which is probably why your search failed.

    I'd advise anyone who wants it to get cracking with their orders as I would guess their stocks will be running dry soon at that price.

    For reference, I ordered it from them and the service was great. From Aus to the UK in around 4 days! Dirt cheap too.

    Thanks, the price does seem really cheap I wonder if any of their other stuff is that cheap.

    It is, but you have to be selective and remember to add on the postage ;)
