Video Calibration:

 

 

 

 

 

HT Designer

 

HTA Designer LT

While this application also provides audio calibration tools, I preferred the visual video calibration tools for locating the best spot for home theater seating in relation to the screen.  You can set the height of the home theater seats and position them according to your screen size.  It’s also simpler to understand for first time home theater owners.  Link ($1.99)

 

 

 

 

 

VideoCalc

 

Videocalc

From the creators of AudioCalc, they come through with another home run.  VideoCalc is for the home theater videophile that’s ready to make the leap into a front projector and the screen that goes along with it.  You will be able to determine the optimal screen size, projector placement, the ideal field of view and several other video related measurements.  It’s also ideal for installers in the field.  Link ($2.99)

 

 

 

 

Projector Calc

 

ProjectorCalc

Similar to VideoCalc, ProjectorCalc (created by a different company) is also a projector calibration tool, but for large venues.  Owners of huge home theaters may find this application useful though.  It’s somewhat more simplistic than VideoCalc due to a more visual design.  Link ($4.99)

 

 

 

 

 

Sim2calc

 

Sim2calc

I can only recommend this application to installers that specifically sell Sim2 projectors.  Why?  The application is identical to VideoCalc in functionality (Made by the same company), accept for one difference.  It provides a selectable list of the entire lineup of Sim2 projectors and automatically enters the technical information into the corresponding fields to determine the best spot for the projector.  It also provides a bulleted feature listing for all the projectors, but it’s somewhat difficult to read due to the dark text.  Still, if you sell Sim2 projectors, it can be handy for a quick guide to installers.  Everyone else should stick to VideoCalc for a tenth of the price.   Link  ($29.99)
