  • Calibration between PC monitor & TV output

    Is there any guidance about calibrating PC monitors to match a TV output or vice versa. I am finding quite a difference in colour, brightness and contrast between these items. I realise there will be some difference but is there any way to get them close.
    There are so many adjustments possible ie. Graphics card settings, PC monitor settings and TV settings. Which do you adjust first?

    What kind of TV monitor are you using? Professional? Consumer? HDTV? Professional HD monitor?

    I would never use a PC monitor for checking color of video. It's too off.

      Hi Dave thanks for the reply. The TV is a Sanyo consumer flat screen.
      Output is SD connected via SVHS lead.

        I have a book where they have a guide for setting up monitors for accuracy..these are good for broadcast monitors. I will try to scan it and post it up, it might come in handy for you.

          Thanks Dave. Any tips on setting up a graphics card with the DV Storm 2 ?

            Not much, since DVStorm2 will only use hardware overlay under Edius (no DirectX9 support). It should work right off the bat.

            Also here's the book pages as promised, this should come in handy for others as well.

              Dave, I really appreciate your assistance. I regularly see you coming to the aid of many. Without the likes of you and the other technos here, lots of us would struggle. Keep up the good work mate. I will have a go at sorting out my monitor today. Once again, thanks mate.

                Try looking at Spyder TV ... although ordinary TV lacks the h/w & s/w tools that are available on PC / MAC monitors for calibration, this one comes close to doing its job.

                Still I won't judge the accuracy of colours on consumer TV ... their colours are artifically boasted. I use broadcast monitors for that.

                  Thanks for the advice Tingsern but I managed to sort things with the info StormDave gave me. It may however help somebody else on this Forum.

                    You beauty Dave, but there's good news and bad news mate! Good news - as an amateur I've been looking for something like this "forever" so you're a saviour. Bad news (maybe) - the article is for NTSC so it may not apply to me here in Australia (PAL land). I wonder if anyone has the answer to this? Mike T, if the Boldon Colliery is in the UK, you may know mate!

                      Don, I just followed the instructions regarding luminosity and brightness as written, then tweaked the colour afterwards and it worked for me. Try it I'm sure it will work for you too!

                        Welcome guys :)

                        Sorry, not sure about PAL...it should be similar except the bottom part of the color bars are absent in the PAL land as far as I know.

                        Just to let you guys know, if you don't have professional broadcast monitors, just skip the "blue gun only" bit as most pro monitors have a blue only setting. Plasmas/LCD's (consumer) don't have these.

                        I setup all monitors like this and I get perfect representation of how the colors should be.
