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!

Here's how to win (please read carefully – including the fine print):

He led us DEEP into the jungle of Bias Lighting with lots of rich detail about how and why it works, while also showing us measurable proof that not all bias lighting is the same. If you want to learn a lot about visual science and the science behind light, kick back and enjoy!

Well, unfortunately, Clemente turned out to be not so nice of a guy. He got himself banned for a head shaking email response to his notification that he failed to respond to his winner's notice. What can you do... :surrender:

@Todd Anderson I was wondering if you might clarify if a post is the same as a message, regarding rule 7... If this is true then some of us might need a few more entries...
Oh, man!!! I left you short!!!! That was totally unintentional. I feel terrible.

I'm both surprised and disappointed to hear that. These giveaways are so cool and fun, it's sad to see any shade thrown on them. Sorry for the lame joke, if I had any idea of what happened, I would never have posted it.

Your mission is to install and report back!

For the disc, there are resources that will tell you how to use it to rest out your 4K capable displays/projectors.
