Why unique...?


We support display manufacturers and work with them to constantly improve these new evolving and developing systems. We are the ones testing and developing the workflows.

Here at Display And Sound Calibration we have worked calibrating every display technology over the last 40 years from CRT, plasma, LCD (LED is LCD) to the latest Oled and projector technology, as well as the latest highly technical and complex video and audio processors.


Combining all that know how means we are highly experienced to provide the results you are looking for.

We would like to bring this level of expertise and service to your home cinema.

The look on the face of an owner once we have completed their calibration is the best part of the process. Your passion is our passion and we understand that.
