Robert is also known as ‘Mr. Bob’ on
After owning and operating the San
Francisco Bay Area's Audio-Video business Stereo Wizards
for more than 20 years Bob left that behind
to start calibrating FPTV's, RPTV's and Direct View as
the technologies emerged. He has optimized thousands of high-precision
systems including CRT, DLP, LCD,
Plasma, LCOS and DILA systems.
“More and more viewers are realizing that without a
professional calibration, they are not
getting full value out of the display they paid thousands for.
Would they even consider doing
that with a Lamborgini or a Maserati?”
At this writing, with CRT RPTV's higher
precision and resolution, a system will still be far less expensive to buy and have calibrated
than any similarly sized fixed-pixel display. A full-service Image Perfection calibration assures
the maximum bang-for-buck value and the highest degree of viewing pleasure.
High calibrations bring on a razor-sharp picture that allows viewers
to sit closer to their displays and
get lost in an alternative world of visual delight.
With a dizzying stream of clients
and a rich cross-section of private businesses,
Bob has worked for many high-profile entities
including Disney, The Wherehouse, Delta Airlines, Lockheed,
Dunfey and Red Robin.
worked on systems owned by a prominent member of Oscar Award winning Digital Domain as
well as a home system for director of CGI at Industrial Light and Magic.
Two key scenes, in Star Wars Episode Two and Attack of the Clones, were
used to test the calibration by the ILM CGI artist from the direct to digital DVD. Scenes from
Special Effects Oscar winning Titanic – Oscar won by Digital Domain –
were used to test the other RPTV.
He brings the benefits of many years as an
experienced on-location electronics technician to the unflinching perfectionism it takes to
come up with the only kind of visual image he himself cares to watch – the best –
and is ever interested in educating whoever he can in the process, many times interrupting a
calibration to chat about something technical that he has been asked about, by the client.
The handle of “Mr Bob” is
internationally known on the Internet, as he is a contributing writer to many home theater
boards. His writings – including both observations and advice – have appeared in
many places on the Internet, sometimes far from where they were originally written.
Centrally located in San
Francisco’s East Bay (San Lorenzo), Bob stands ready to go wherever the work
takes him, whether locally or across the country.
