    Like most production company owners, I regularly take stock of my equipment inventory, evaluating the need for updates or additions to match current and future needs. A recent audit led me to consider investing in higher powered 12- or 15-inch-loaded stage monitors. The process of investigating what matched our audio requirements with what’s available in the marketplace emphasized that there are a whole lot of variables beyond sound that come into play regarding the acquisition of new gear. All businesses,… View this post

    The plain truth is that digital signal distribution is the best way to go for image fidelity. Part of the reason why analog-distributed images often appear deteriorated stems from the fact that there can be significant line loss in the transmission of the signal. The nature of digital signals allows accurate distribution of the image information, regardless of how many times you split and route the signal. Of course, there are many other factors to be considered, but they all… View this post

    A key factor to consider when selecting a projection display is understanding the minimum Total Environmental Dynamic Range required to achieve killer imagery in the target venue. The term Total Environmental Dynamic Range (TEDR) describes the actual contrast ratio achieved in a venue, including the impact of ambient light. Thus, the TEDR value defines the dynamic range, or contrast, the viewers actually perceive. You will see, even in venues with a minimal amount of ambient light, the TEDR value will… View this post

    Ideally, images shot by a video camera would be reproduced on a display device exactly as it was recorded. Unfortunately, this is very rarely the case, as the technologies of cameras and display devices sometimes have their own nuances that slightly, and sometimes significantly, change the performance of imagery. In such cases, you need tools to correct for these abnormalities. What is Gamma? Gamma is a function to correct nonlinear performance inherent in CRT display devices. The CRT does not… View this post
