ISF Calibration

Established in 2008, we provide industry-leading, professional ISF calibration for LED TVs, OLED TVs, plasma displays and digital projectors throughout the central and southern regions of the UK.

If you have invested in a new TV or video projector, bear in mind that the final link in the chain between content producer and viewer is the adherence to global imaging standards.
The importance of this fundamental step is frequently misunderstood, or dismissed as superfluous by retailers and manufacturers alike in their combined efforts to sell a display. Yet without proper alignment, image fidelity or faithfulness to the original production is lost.

Professional TV Calibration Service

Have you ever noticed how all of the television pictures in popular electrical retailers (e.g. Currys and John Lewis) seem to vary substantially in colour and quality, even though they are displaying the same channel? They are normally designed by their manufacturers to render an attractive image under retail lighting conditions and to stand out from the competition. How do you know which, if any, are accurate?

Certain Blu-ray Disc titles are readily available such as, Digital Video Essentials HD Basics and Spears & Munsil HD Benchmark, which contain test patterns and real-life material frequently used to adjust the standard controls of brightness, contrast, colour and sharpness. Although users who are experienced with these discs may well achieve some improvement, most people find the instructions difficult to follow and often struggle to set the controls correctly. Ultimately, they are not substitutable for a professional TV calibration service because white balance, gamma controls and colour management systems require accurate instruments in order to be set properly.

By using a signal generator, colour analyser and dedicated software to perform a comprehensive in-home service, all picture controls will be optimally adjusted. You will experience the image as the director intended, because your display will be calibrated to the same standards that were used in the video creation. Colours will seem more natural and detail will be present that might otherwise have been lost. Most importantly, you will know that your TV or projector is performing at its best for your particular viewing environment.
