Looking for dalibration DVD/blu-ray like Disney WOW / THX Calibration Disc (UK)

Hi, I am looking for a calibration DVD/blu-ray similar to the THX Calibration Disc or Disney WOW/World of Wonder Disc. I am in the UK so the US imports wont play on my mac.

It is to be used in conjunction with an Intensity Pro.

Ben

That's exactly what I use to calibrate our displays. Works great.

Do you know how to get the patterns working with the Intensity pro.

Well, first off, those patterns are meant to calibrate your display. So, initially, I'd do that first.

To check your Intensity, you really need to send color bars through it, and output that to a scope. If you don't have a scope, send color bars through it, ingest a few seconds, and then use the software scope via Premiere or FCP to check it out.

Make corrections via the Blackmagic Control Panel, and keep trying until you get it correct.

This is exacly what I am trying to do, calibrate the display. This is what I am trying to find out how to do.

Also Not sure what you mean by 'these patterns'. The ones I think I need to use are at http://www.avsforum.com/t/948496/avs-hd-709-blu-ray-mp4-calibration but the Blackmagic Media Express does not seem to play them (although it seems to import them OK.)

> To check your Intensity, you really need to send color bars through it, and output that to a scope.

Yes, the color bar test clips that come with drivers work, I don't have a scope and am not entirely sure what one is (although I can guess). Do you have a link to somewhere that will explain.

> If you don't have a scope, send color bars through it, ingest a few seconds, and then use the software scope via Premiere or FCP to check it out.

This sounds like a way of setting up the card for capture, this is not what I am using it for. I am using it to run a monitor so it is the monitor I am trying to set up. The monitor has lots of setting, the Intensity Pro very few.

> Make corrections via the Blackmagic Control Panel, and keep trying until you get it correct.

OK, what are the criteria for 'correct'?

Sorry if I am being think,
Regards,
Ben

What editing software do you have? I wouldn't use Media Express, I'd use something like Premiere Pro of FCP (or you're using a Mac). Import the video into one of those, drop it on a timeline, and then you can view the video via the Intensity.

Without a colorimeter (like the Eye-One), you can only do basic calibration.
