I have just been told details by Alan and Jonathan Brawn, on the ISF Commercial (ISF-C) and Digital Signage Display Experts (DSDE) display technology, screen optimization and calibration course– the combined, single event in the Seattle area (Redmond, Washington) on November 8th and 9th. It is a two day event with the second full day being a total immersion hands on experience.

The special part of this event is that the Brawns have several the top display manufacturers (projection and flat panel) who are participating, each with a product in a different niche. The concept is to have displays representing every class/application possible and teach the attendees how calibrate using a variety of equipment. They will also have the top display instrument/calibration manufacturers (i.e. Gamma Scientific, Konica Minolta, Klein, XRite, etc.) at the event and the attendees will get hands on with each one. We have updated our first day on classroom training and have arranged for a full ballroom with plenty of room to do the second day’s hand-on lab.

Below are details, from the Brawns:

ISF Commercial to Host ISF-C Display Calibration Event in Seattle

The Imaging Science Foundation Commercial group recently announced that it will hold a two-day ISF-C event in Seattle on Nov. 8-9. The event is focused on those who wish to become experts in display technologies and image optimization through display calibration in a given environment.

Alan C. Brawn, Co-Director of ISF-C notes that “by adopting calibration standards and understanding the methodologies involved in the screen optimization process we can address an infinite number of applications and environments. In short, a company's color logo should look like it was intended and people should look like people and not caricatures of themselves. With ISF-C certification we will bring
forth a group of display experts dedicated to creating the “perfect picture” and in the process pay homage to the creators of the film, video, or graphic content and displaying it as it was intended.

The first day of the ISF-C course teaches display calibration through an understanding of human vision as it relates to display technologies and their unique characteristics, and how displays co-exist with the environment in which they are viewed. The course answers the question, “Why calibrate?” culminating in a discussion on “how to calibrate” each type of display, said the company.

The second day of the event is dedicated to an in depth hands-on lab experience with current, state-of-the-art displays from major display manufacturers and multiple types of calibration equipment to get real world practice and experience. Displays are being provided by Christie Digital, Infocus, Samsung, Canon, LG, Projectiondesign, and Digital Projection. Software and meters are being supplied by Spectracal, Gamma Scientific, Konica Minolta, Klein, and Atlona.

Following the course, attendees will take the ISF-C certification course administered online. Attendees are awarded the ISF-C designation upon passing the test, and earn 16 InfoComm CTS Renewal Units.

The ISF-C event will take place in Redmond, Wash., on Nov. 8-9, at the Redmond Marriott Town center. Attendees can make hotel arrangements at the Redmond Marriot Town Center for a discounted event rate of $175 per night by referring to “ISF Commercial” when making reservations.
