Customers across Germany can experience blockbuster-worthy pictures in their own home with the introduction of MediaMarkt and Saturn’s new TV calibration service. Over 400 locations offer a 99-euro in-store calibration, performed by a trained professional, with the purchase of a new TV.
MediaMarkt and Saturn employees go through extensive training courses conducted by Calman experts in order to become Calman certified calibration specialists. Employees that take part in these sessions are knowledgeable about the makes and models of televisions such as LG, Panasonic, Samsung and Sony, all of whom are partners of Portrait Display’s Calman Ready™ program. MediaMarkt and Saturn patrons can now choose the perfect TV to watch their favorite shows and movies with the confidence that the image they watch on-screen is seen exactly as the creator intended.
Portrait Displays’ color calibration solutions meet the latest technical specifications and international standards to guarantee best-in-class picture quality based on the latest in color science and display technology. Calibration results, whether performed manually or using AutoCal, are consistent across the board and allows the user to enjoy seeing something that is both unprecedented and immersive on-screen.
“Calman is recognized across Hollywood and the content creation industry as the go-to color calibration software when producing, editing, and watching content,” explained Portrait Displays President and CEO, Eric Brumm. “We are pleased to have partnered with MediaMarkt and Saturn to bring this elevated color experience to Germany and have worked hard to ensure that customers will enjoy an incomparable lens to living room viewing experience.”
