GIVEAWAY! Elevate Your TV's Performance with a Spears & Munsil UHD HDR Benchmark Calibration Disc AND an LX1 Bias Lighting Kit!!

full?d=1636551664.png

(November 9, 2021) Good afternoon AV NIRVANA! Welcome to our latest Giveaway Contest featuring two essential items needed to make your HD or UHD TV perform better than ever. This time we have no regional entry restrictions. That's right folks, our Giveaway partner has agreed to let AV NIRVANA members from around the globe enter for a chance to win!

Following our recent review of a Scenic Labs LX1 Media Bias Lighting Kit, Scenic Labs agreed to give away two fantastic must-have items. The first is the industry's most relevant calibration disc, the Spears & Munsil UHD HDR Benchmark. This 4K disc is loaded with tests you need to set up and properly adjust an HDR display. Tests include calibration and evaluation patterns, demo clips in HDR, SDR, and original material finished in 8K HDR, professional-quality calibration patters, and HDR patterns available in 600, 1000, 2000, 4000 and 10000 cd/m² versions.

The second item is an LX1 Bias Lighting kit! Thanks to Scenic Labs, the winner can request one of six different kit sizes ranging from Extra Small (1 meter) to Extra Extra Large (6 meters). LX1 delivers reference-grade performance with ISF Certification at 6500K and lab measurements that best approximate D65 with a CRI of 95. The resulting professional-grade lighting will allow you to see movies with accurate colors, natural skin tones, and better contrast and black levels. As we found in our review, the LX1 truly elevates a TV viewing experience!

Sounds awesome, right? That's because it IS awesome!

Sounds a cool giveaway. Even more so, because if I were lucky enough to win it will not only help mr calibrate my set-up it would more importantly help me accurately calibrate my mums TV, as she is a nightmare when it comes mucking about with her TV picture settings.

Only yesterday I helped her set it up again, only to find out on messages this morning, that after I left her house, she hit factory reset. ggrrrrrrrrr argh!
