Avia DVD

Is this DVD worth it? I've looked online, and everywhere I look it appears this disk was made back in 1999!. I would think with all the updates in sound and display technologies since 99, that this disk is way out of date?

Are there other calibration discs that are better?

I use AVIA and think it's a great calibration DVD.

Its not bad but its geared a bit more towards CRT tvs as opposed to plasma or LCD. I tried it and it helped a bit. Try going on AVforums and see what people w/ your same model TV have done. I got some recommendations from people there that really helped

With that being said... is there any "newer" calibration DVDs that are meant for LCD/Plasma? I find it hard to belive that the 1999 disc is up to date and there is no improvements in calibration.

I calibrated my plasma with AVIA and I think it did a great job.

The Avia can certainly help. To be honest, I just didnt have the patience to really use the disk to its full potential. If you have the patient and a sensitive eye, Im sure the Avia will work fine on your plasma/lcd.

Colors are colors regardless of crt or plasma. Avia is good, another alternative is Video Essentials which is more noob friendly.
