Discussion in 'Projectors, Screens & Video Processors' started by Amelia, Aug 23, 2002.
Any one know if they still plan on releasing it this month?
I've been in contact with the guy who's company is making it and am arranging a bulk discount for Forum members. I'll be posting as and when discussions are concluded and if Spectre agrees the Power Buy.
If it comes out in the near future, count me in if you guy are going to be doing a bulk purchase.
Ok, August has been and gone and still no Calibrator??
I really do want this disk, so i can get the best pic out of my Panny but i might just buy another Calibration disk
The latest prel. release date is the 11th of september
I think the worse part it their web site doesn't give any info or contact details.
excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is it?
This is the Link for it.
Its basically a calibration DVD that allows you to setup your Sound and Picture for best performance. I have never used one myself, but from what I have been told, this one will support Pal.
Hope this helps
I want a copy too. Will the Power Buy be posted in the projector forum?
I want a copy too, i already put in another thread
so it is like avia with pal?
Yes - but I would be surprised if it's as good as AVIA.
Put me down for a copy though .
n00b question incoming....
....whats AVIA when it's at home?
Another calibration disc, allowing you to set up picture (brightness, contrast, colour etc), as well as sound levels.
Other such discs include Video Essentials (rumoured to have a new version coming), Ultimate DVD Platinum, plus Avia as already mentioned. All so far have been NTSC discs, hence the interest in The Calibrator.
How much difference PAL will make is another question - particularly for projectors - anyone care to comment?
No response from juboy in two weeks. Any news ?
I now have the phone number and email address of the main guy at Dahlstrom Media and have been trying to contact him on and off for the past week.
Will keep trying and let you know what happens. This was his response to my email asking about a possible power buy discount:
"Hello Julian! I´m sure we can sort something out.
Please call me and we can discuss the matter"
So, it looks hopeful. More news when I get it.
I just hope its going to be sooner rather than later.
In any case count me in
Personally go with Avia teh PAL/NTSC thing is easily got round : just use PAL60 if its a composite or s-video feed you are using.
Well, this is a good point. What IS the benefit of a PAL disc, rather than NTSC. I'm sure most devices we are likely to set up are capable of displaying an NTSC signal, or are being fed with RGB. Now I know that NTSC has Tint and Hue settings (or something similar - am I right?), which aren't applicable for PAL, so are there any settings only applicable to PAL that we are missing out on?
Haven't heard of this one. Is it one of Arnie's films?
The Calibrator from "I'll be Back DVDs"
I have never used any calibration discs yet, so I really don't know too much about them. I guess from my point of view, if 99% of the DVDs I use are going to be PAL, then I would prefer to calibrate my system with a PAL Calibration DVD.
Then again, the way things are going with The Calibrator, I could be waiting some time
Is this out yet??
I just checked out their web site www.thecalibrator.com and guess what . . . . . It still coming out soon!!!
Its been coming out for a while now.
Maybe it's shy.... I'm getting tempted to go with Avia.....
I think I am also leaning towards Avia. I'm not sure if we can get it here. None of the stores I have been in have ever heard of it, so I have a feeling I will need to purchase it over the net.
Best prices I found (using the Multiregion DVD Price Checker )
The costs are inclusive of shipping to the UK (the only shipping option they currently list), but it should give an idea.
I will try and order one this week
PS: I had a look at your site for some new picture Then again I can't talk, I havn't put any new ones up either
I dont suppose there is anything more on this? Or is it a dead duck now?
