Digital Video Essentials

Did you know that new displays come from the factory with contrast and brightness settings configured waaaay too high? It's so the displays look good on a bright showroom floor. If you've just purchased a fancy new display, the first thing you'll need to do is calibrate it.

You can either pay someone a few hundred dollars -or- go into the display's settings, switch it from it's current "Showroom" profile to something dimmer -- perhaps called something like "Cinema". Then spend ~$20 on a disk like DVE that will take you step-by-step through the finer points of audio / video calibration.
