Audio & Video Distribution

Audio & Video Distribution

Audio and video calibration involves fine-tuning the audio settings to maximize the speakers performance in the room, and adjusting the video processor in your television for the best image quality. This generally involves test equipment for each system, used to make adjustments not available in consumer menus. Since A/V equipment is not factory-set to optimum levels for the environment they will reside in, audio/visual calibration is the final step to maximizing your audio and video performance.
