Brillian Includes ISF Calibration with All HDTVs

by November 20, 2005

TEMPE, AZ - Nov 21, 2005 - To optimize the viewing experience of its HDTVs and ensure that the HDTV experience in the living room or board room meets or exceeds the dealer showroom, Brillian Corporation today announced that calibration from Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) professionals will be included with each of its 720p and 1080p HDTVs purchased. Brillian is the first liquid-crystal-on-silicon (LCOS) HDTV manufacturer to offer free ISF calibration to HDTV buyers.

One of the key end user complaints about today's HDTVs is that the picture quality of their new HDTV is not as good in their home as it was in the highly controlled environment of a dealer showroom. This can be caused by a number of factors including variations in video signal quality, a weak link in their video processing chain, or poor calibration to the user's environment.

To remedy the calibration issue and guarantee that the best image is delivered for each environment, Brillian is now including ISF calibration with all 720p and 1080p HDTVs purchased. A professionally certified HDTV calibrator will assess the lighting, room dimensions and user preferences and then calibrate up two inputs on each Brillian HDTV installed. End users simply need to contact Brillian at its toll-free number (1-800-706-0154) or at [email protected] after purchasing their TV to be provided with an ISF calibrator in their area.

"We believe that it is critical with HDTV image quality that customers get the experience they were expecting," said Rainer Kuhn, Brillian vice president of Sales and Product Marketing. "That's why we have provided home theater and commercial installers with unprecedented abilities to fine-tune image performance for end users. Brillian is the first LCOS company to provide this type of convenience included with each HDTV and we believe this is just one of many features that will differentiate our offerings from those of other hardware manufacturers."

Brillian's HDTVs offer industry-leading calibration features to optimize performance for home theater and commercial applications. Gamma, color temperature control, RGB, and gain/offset are modifiable on a per-input basis with password protected access. Both PC Magazine, with its Editor's Choice Award, and Displaymate, with its Best Combination HDTV/Monitor Product award, have recognized Brillian HDTVs for their overall picture quality and ability to be fine-tuned for specific environments.

ISF is the world's largest and most recognized organization of professional video calibrators. In order to receive certification, calibrators undergo rigorous multi-day course work, perform hands-on equipment calibration, successfully pass the certification test, and finally invest in a set of measurement equipment required to perform the work at the installation site.

"In order for the ISF to undertake this commitment, we first evaluate whether a product is properly designed to ensure that it can meet ISF Qualification standards. The Brillian product line exceeds the features required for ISF calibrators to do their work. Through this bundling of product and service, end users will receive the best possible viewing experience possible enabling their new systems to truly deliver on the promise of HDTV," said Joel Silver, Founder of the Imaging Science Foundation.

Brillian will leverage the Imaging Science Foundation to provide these sophisticated calibration services for all of its products. The ISF has the resources and knowledge base of a nationwide network of trainers, advisors, and ISF trained calibrators to execute this program.
