Improve Your Display Calibration

Professional Display Calibration Services in Los Angeles & SoCal




Areas Serviced

Display Calibration Tools offers professional display calibration services in Los Angeles and Southern California.


Calibration Services

We service post production facilities and individuals as well as home theater environments. Our mission is to deliver the best possible calibration for a given display source, our calibration workflows always profile the entire signal chain, which ensures that all hardware and software components are considered and compensated for. Only this approach provides the very best display calibration.

Calibration services include:

    • SDR and HDR calibration
    • desktop monitor calibration
    • TV calibration
    • on-camera, production and post-production displays
    • Projector calibration
    • 3D LUT calibration
    • traditional 3pt/6pt calibration
    • ICC profile based calibration

For 3D LUT calibration, which provides the best calibration results, we cover all possible signal chain scenarios:

  • Post Production / DI Signal Chain
    • All hardware and software components of the actual signal chain, such as:
      • video i/o card
      • GPU
      • LUT storage / processors
      • signal converters
      • software being used for color critical application (Grading, VFX, Edit, etc)
    • will be included in the profiling chain for best calibration results.
  • Home Theater
    • dedicated single chain calibration, such as Blu-ray player output etc
    • multi chain calibration to cover a variety of media sources such as: Blu-ray, DVD, media players, internet streams, DVR etc
  • Pattern Display Methods
    • direct control (DC) calibration, will be used if direct control of the pattern source is supported, e.g. DaVinci Resolve etc
    • fixed interval (FI) calibration, this refers to timeline based calibration due to non-direct control of the pattern source, this is required for apps like Nucoda, Nuke or calibration of a dedicated Blu-ray / DVD player signal chain
  • 3D LUT Formats & Installation
    • we provide any 3D LUT output format required for calibration
    • 3D calibration LUTs can be installed in any LUT processor: LUT box, display LUT (display internal LUT processor), or as direct viewing LUTs inside the application (e.g. DaVinci Resolve, Nucoda, Baselight, Nuke, Flame, Fusion, After Effects, Premiere etc)

Probes & Equipment

All calibrations are performed by display calibrations experts using high-end, industry reference probes such as Klein K10-A colorimeters and instruments from Colorimetry Research: CR100 (colorimeter) and CR300 (2nm, high-end spectroradiometer).

In a non-DI signal chain, a dedicated pattern generator will be used for SDR/HDR pattern display and control.


Calibration Software

We use dedicated industry reference software to validate and calibrate 3D LUT, 3pt/6pt and ICC based signal chains. This guarantees the very best results.
