ISF-C Ramping Up for New Training

David Keene– Alan Brawn has told me that the ISF-C (Imaging Science Foundation- Commercial) program is “a new and revitalized ISF-C organization and we think you will be pleased with what is in store for the group over the next three months.”

ISF Commercial works in conjunction with manufacturers, integrators, and service providers to improve the quality and usability of commercial display systems. ISF Commercial has taken the lead in creating industry standards for commercial display calibration. As technologies have begun to converge, ISF Commercial is taking an increasingly active role in research and development to improve integration of commercial display systems. ISF also acts as advocate for the value of calibration and other functions that can improve the quality of systems throughout the industry.

I know that a significant move is that ISF-C has brought on a Managing Director– Jeff Murray formerly of SpectraCAL and prior to that Sencore. “Nobody knows the calibration industry better than Jeff and he will now be able to concentrate all that knowledge on training and furthering the industry overall,” Brawn told me. “His task will be to focus on the details of the organization day to day and make sure we are meeting the needs of both current and future ISF-C graduates. Jonathan and I will remain involved with some of the teaching but more focused on the creation of new courses to serve your needs as well as those of your clients.”

Brawn reports that they recently completed intensive work with Jeff to create a roadmap of new and in some cases revamped programs with both classroom and hands on training in each case.

Which leads to the ISF-C news release out today, from SpectrCAL– one of the ISF-C sponsors:
