Hi there,
I'm not sure if that is the right forum for my question, so please bare with me.
I was wondering what the best way is to callibrate a hd monitor.
What do I need to look for when looking at the color bars???
It might be a stupid question, but somehow I think I am doing the wrong thing when setting up my monitor.
To be honest I haven't done it to often ( quite new to it ). I will be going to our local rental house next week to get a monitor. They said they can show me, but i would like to have a better understanding of it befor I go there.
Any help would be great!!!
Thanks a lot,
Rob

Here are a couple of links which give details on setting up SMPTE bars, the type commonly used in HD.

Thanks for the advice, I think the videouniversity site is the more user friendly site.
Cheers.
