  • Description

Whether you’re a home theater novice or a professional calibrator, you’ll find all the tests you need to set up and adjust your HDTV in the Spears and Munsil HD Benchmark.

The previous edition of the HD Benchmark was recommended by the New York Times, Widescreen Review, Home Theater Magazine and dozens of other print and online publications. This new edition keeps all the features of the previous disc and adds dozens of new features, including:

• 3D stereoscopic calibration and evaluation patterns
• Audio tests for speaker setup, calibration, and A/V sync
• Motion patterns to evaluate 120Hz and 240Hz interpolation modes
• More help for the home theater beginner
• More patterns for the advanced user or professional calibrator

The Spears and Munsil HD Benchmark is a great tool for your calibration arsenal! Every pattern was created using Spears and Munsil's exclusive ultra-high-precision software tools and represents the state of the art in video reproduction.

Note that all 3D patterns require a 3D Blu-ray Disc player and 3D television. The 2D material will play in any Blu-ray Disc player.

EZ to follow instructions. Didn't realize what I had been missing on my 3D and QLED HDR UHD TV's.

Reviews were misleading, glad I didn't listen to them!

Several reviews I read complained that there wasn't enough direction on how to perform the tests and make adjustments, but I know just enough to be dangerous so I figured I would take a chance. I am glad I did. The instructions are in a booklet included with the disc. All you need to do is follow the steps in order, and within minutes you will have a well-adjusted TV. I also purchased a 4-meter strip of LX1 bias lights that I installed prior to making the adjustments which really help my viewing experience. There are several tests I did not attempt because I do not have the expertise, nor the equipment necessary to make use of them. If you are considering this or just using THX, I used the THX version that is included with some Blu-Ray discs, and this is much more detailed. It even includes tests for 3D and audio, as well as videos to sample the finished product.
