but what does calibrate mean in relation to a plasma screen. How does one calibrate a plasma?
Ged look here....www.homecinemaengineering.com you can do some basic stuff yourself but you need a qualified expert like Piers to do it all properly.
Thanks MEP - I assume some plasmas are easier to calibrate than others? How does the Viera stand in this department?
I don't have a viera but I do have Panasonic panels and Piers gets great results with them......
Veira is a bloody nightmare but i am sure piers will do it for you, dont ask him for a discount tho!
the cost of calibration would be 25% of the purchase price of my panny - is that really worth it in terms of proportionality?
if a screen that looked significantly better and was availbale with exactly same specs as your panny would you have bought it?
what if cost 25% more?
The ISF is £250, did you get a second hand viera for £1000?
I am going to get my Viera done when I get one next month and have run it in for a hundered hours or so. Everyone says it is worth it that has had it done - just get it done when you can afford it, treat it as a 'upgrade'.
So you need to run the screen for @ 100 hours before having it calibrated? Again, excuse my ignorance, but why is that?
I`ll add my voice to meps. Definitely worth having it done. Even if the cost is 1/3 the total you paid for your screen. The difference is, as Horny has intimated, tantamount to having a whole new, even better screen.
the huindred houirs is to allow the screen to wear in and bed down, and if its going tits up its in the first 100 hours so best not spend £250 on a screen and have go pop an hour later!
Thanks - these plasmas sound more like bleedin' cars than televisions!!
nope just like any high performance item the require expert attention.
