ISF Commercial works in conjunction with manufacturers, integrators, and service providers to improve the quality and usability of commercial display systems. Based on the original Imaging Science Foundation, established in 1994, ISF Commercial has taken the lead in creating industry standards for commercial display calibration. As technologies have begun to converge, ISF Commercial is taking an increasingly active role in research and development to improve integration of commercial display systems. ISF also acts as advocate for the value of calibration and other functions that can improve the quality of systems throughout the industry.
With relationships in all parts of the industry – from manufacturers and researchers, to integrators and service providers – ISF Commercial has one of the most up-to-date and comprehensive libraries of research on calibration and integration issues. In addition to using this knowledge to train professionals and certify products, ISF Commercial acts as an advocate for these issues. Members of the ISF Commercial board have written for virtually every major industry publication while contributing to articles appearing in publications as diverse as The Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Cnet, PC Magazine and Wired.
The goal of ISF Commercial training is to provide information, as well as familiarity with standards and practices for those who wish to become expert in the field of displays and calibration. ISF Commercial works across industry boundaries permitting professionals easy access to information beyond the confines of their current work experience. It allows manufacturers to improve designs to enhance product deployment and minimize service issues in the process. Finally, ISF Commercial training provides a foundation from which continuing measureable improvements in display calibration can be made.
ISF Commercial display calibration and certification is a qualification process for audio visual systems integrators to insure that their technical staffs are capable of providing the most professional services possible to their customer base. When an integrator installs a display, the job is not complete until the display and the system is fine tuned for the application and environment. Going beyond basic adjustments, ISF Commercial certified technicians insure that the customer’s display is fine tuned for peak performance, long life, and the most efficient total cost of ownership. With a clear understanding of the science and craft of display calibration and how to apply those parameters in diverse environments and applications, the integrator will be able to create a new revenue stream and differentiate themselves from those competitors who are less qualified.
The focus of ISF Commercial is to establish standards by which displays of all types are properly calibrated relative to the applications and environments in which they reside. By working with display manufacturers to better understand the degree of calibration that is necessary, ISF Commercial will award selected products the "ISF Commercial: Engineered for Calibration" product certification. This means that a qualified calibration technician will be able to configure a manufacturer’s display for peak performance, long life, energy savings, and the best total cost of ownership. This will be a clear differentiation between products with rudimentary adjustments versus full calibration.
ISF Commercial display calibration and certification provides an audio visual industry standard qualification process for A/V systems integrators to educate and certify that their technical staffs are prepared to provide the most professional services possible. When a display is chosen, the job is not complete until the display is fine tuned for the application and environment. Going beyond basic adjustments, ISF Commercial certified technicians insure that your display is fine tuned for peak performance, long life, and the most efficient total cost of ownership. By selecting an ISF Commercial certified integrator, you will see a clear differentiation between integrators who are committed to excellence and those who are less qualified.
