CalMAN 5 Tutorial

Tutorial provides a starting place for beginners, providing everything you need to accomplish an entry level video calibration of your home theater. The software includes step-by-step instructions to explain exactly what you need to know to achieve a good calibration and how to do it with the tools provided. Concerned about selecting the wrong software level? Don't be, at SpectraCal we allow you to start anywhere you want and later upgrade as needed for only the cost of the difference. As an example, if you purchase CalMAN 5 Basic for $149 and later want to upgrade to CalMAN 5 Control $299, the only cost to you is the $150 difference from Basic to Control. It's that simple.
