Imaging Science Foundation LEVEL III Training

Since the release of HDMI 2.0 and the onset of 4K/HDR products and content, calibration has become secondary to successfully distributing the correct signal. Our mission at ISF is to deliver the best picture available to the end user and to match the director’s intent. It is paramount to the mission to get the complete and correct signal from the source through any repeaters in the HDMI network all the way to the display. Very few integrators have successfully taken the dive into distributing 4K with HDR because the signal exceeds the limitations of most of the current infrastructure in homes and businesses. CEDIA integrators have either put in systems with 4K and no HDR, limit the system to 1080P SDR, or they put the sources in the room with the HDR display. None of these compromises are necessary. We cover this at length to help you confidently sell and install these high bandwidth products and systems without the need for any shortcuts or compromises.

COURSE PREVIEW:

Standard Student = AUD2500 | Alumni Student = AUD1700

Day 1

What it takes to get 18Gbps signals through the system and to the display, a hands-on lab on fiber optic cable termination, and an in-depth discussion on the use of Matrix Switches, HDMI splitters, Cleerline SSF Fiber, HDBaseT, and more.​

Day 2

Understanding the video food chain, basic video system setup and ISF calibration, white balance, color gamut, and front panel controls all with hands-on labs using meters and generators.

Day 3

HDR completely demystified, HDR calibration, advanced calibration of HDR displays, saturation sweeps, LUTs, and more with hands-on labs.

You may have seen stories about the ISF in the Wall Street Journal, NY Times, PC Magazine, Home Theater, Popular Mechanics, PC World, and Sound & Vision.

ISF is a living, breathing, ever evolving thing, made up of professionals around the globe. We are all striving for video perfection from the movie set all the way to the new HDR display in a home theater, and the technology changes that are rapidly coming to fruition must be fully understood and addressed in all aspects of picture quality. This is why ISF Level III has become so critical!

The true cost of these visually powerful advances is not simply the cost of new displays, it is updating infrastructure and mastering the new skills required to design, integrate, and test the HDMI signal paths that are required to bring these new features to our TV screens.

We are now seeing the second Golden Age of television. With more studios producing high-quality content, we are seeing inconsistencies between professional studio and broadcast monitors. The only way to ensure that the look of a TV show or film matches what the creators intended is to verify that all the monitors used for the project are using the same white point, and if not, calibrating all of them to the standard so they match. Current generation displays have shown us of the most dynamic, colorful, sharpest images we’ve ever seen. The best flat panels are capable of a near reference quality picture, and today’s projectors are dynamic and powerful. We are happily surprised to see TV’s and projectors at even entry and mid-level prices calibrating well and giving customers a good bang for the buck.
