ADI Launches High-Definition Video Training Series

MELVILLE, NY-ADI's High-Definition Video Training Series course will educate installers in HDTV set-up and professional video calibration techniques to improve consumer and industrial customer service satisfaction.

Conducted by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF), ADI's High-Definition Video Training Series will be held in 20 cities across the United States, span 60 days, and begin on April 23, 2007. This course features a full day of hands-on HDTV training, with sponsoring manufacturers including BenQ, Datacolor, Draper, DVDO, Honeywell, Pioneer Professional, and Spectrum Electronics. Installers will improve customer satisfaction by learning how to optimize display potential, adjust color and contrast for home use, and use the Datacolor SpyderTV PRO 2007 calibration tool, ISF HDTV Calibration Wizard and color science instruments.

"HDTV displays are factory calibrated to look their best in retail environments, which are much brighter than in the average home. However, through this training course, installers will easily learn to make these displays look even better in their clients' homes," said Joel Silver, president of ISF. "We are proud to collaborate with ADI, offer these courses across the country, and raise the standard of excellence in home theater." Dealers can register online for the training at
