I know there are tons of posts on using a plasma for color grading but no one is talking about how they are calibrating it. Yes, there is plenty of info on how to do this on http://www.avsforum.com (thanks mmost) but I thought I would ask here because it seems as some people are using this TH-42PF11UK 42" Professional Plasma Monitor. And this is the one I need calibrated. I went to a calibration meeting at B&h video and the guy there was using http://spyder.datacolor.com/product-ht-cfp.php
I have a 23" cinetal and need a larger monitor to match it for the client. I want to pull the trigger on a 42panasonic 11pf plasma but was hoping to get an opinion on how well it will match the cinetals 709 color space.
I have talked to the people at SpectraCal's/CalMAN about this and they want to sell me 2 probes and some software to do this with at a cost of 3,500 or more. When I was at a cinetal demo they used a hubble probe and a davio to get a plasma to 709. Cost for those 2 items is like another 8-10,000.00. What is your opinion on getting a plasma to 709 without breaking the bank. I don't mind spending 3-4grand but want it spent on the best equipment to do the job.
