    I am considering attending ISF training early next year. It's my intention to invest in a colour analyser at around the same time.

    Once I am sure that I can offer a high enough quality of service I intend to offer ISF calibration to front projection device owners. I imagine the units I will be specialising in would be Sony LCD s , Seleco CRT's and any s/h crt's I come across (NEC and Sony so far).

    I would be expecting to visit certain parts of the country all at one time. I.E. Several folk in the midlands could share travel costs and perhaps get a discount if they got enough like minded folk to have their units done. Just a few ideas of how to reduce costs to you guys!

    Before shelling out the substantial amounts required for this little venture I'd be very interested to get some feedback on whether anyone here would be up interested in such a service.

    Rather than reply to the board I'd be grateful if you could just email direct at gdfraser@aol.com good and bad comments please.

    Blade, if you feel this is advertising please delete it.

    Gordon, ISF certification is good in itself but a thorough understanding of the equipment is also essential. What I mean by that is, by way of an example, it's okay knowing exactly what needs to be done to my telly but being able to get in there and do it is another thing!

    This then leads to the question of what you can achieve with a telly that is poxy in the first place, look at the all geometry/convergence/colour purity problems that people have posted on this site with regards to five star equipment. An ISF trained technician can make a good set (or projector) look fantastic but he can't correct what is an obvious manufacturing problem, he isn't a miracle worker. I worry that people in this country may expect too much from this sort of service.

    Thinking about it, by specialising in certain projectors, as you suggest, you may stand a better chance.

    Mart,

    Thanks for the comments. This is exactly the sort of thing I wanted to hear.
