We've previously given you a video overview of what TV calibration is all about and the benefits of properly tuning the image of your display. In part two of our Picture Perfect guide, ISF professional Aaron Rigg of Avical Australia this time takes you step-by-step through the four main calibration settings that you can adjust yourself -- brightness, contrast, sharpness and colour.

To get the best results, we suggest you pick up a calibration disc called DVD Essentials. It's available from most home theatre equipment retailers for AU$29.95.

Watch Aaron's video below to see what each picture setting measures and how to adjust those settings on your television to get optimum results.
