Calibration Services and Pricing

My calibration rates are very straightforward. I do not believe in the "per input" pricing common to some calibrators. Why would anyone want only part of their display calibrated? When I leave your home your entire TV is dialed in, so no matter what inputs are used or what scanning rates you feed it, you are all set.

In addition, if you need some help with hooking up your equipment, setting your sound levels or are just looking for some recommendations on what gear to buy I am happy to help with no extra charge. I never book 2 jobs in one day so I am not in any rush. In fact, I hate to be rushed and seeing how I do not charge by the hour, I take the time necessary to do a thorough job.
