Podcast 113: Kevin Miller
Run Time: 56:10
Kevin Miller is the owner of ISFTV, a display-product development consulting company to the industry's leading television and video-source manufacturers. ISFTV has also been providing professional calibration services since the inception of the Imaging Science Foundation in early 1994. Kevin Miller is also the Co-Founder of TweakTV, an online publication dedicated to informing consumers about the latest developments in HDTV and providing in depth technical reviews of the latest HDTVs.
Kevin started in the audio/video industry in the late 1980s as the managing editor and later the publisher of The Perfect Vision magazine. As the publisher of TPV, he introduced the concept of TV calibration after discovering that other publications were making mistakes on LaserDisc transfer quality, because their TVs were not calibrated. Under his direction, calibration became part of the process of reviewing both software and TVs, a process that is now used by all home-theater related publications. This quickly put TPV on the map as the technical authority in video in the publishing industry.
From 1994 to 1997, Kevin was a partner in Total Media Systems, a home-theater custom-installation business in New York. He then took a position as the Marketing Director for Runco International from May 1997 to April 1999, which afforded him extensive training and experience in front-projection setup.
From 1999 to 2001, Kevin was the editorial director for video at the now-defunct consumer-electronics Internet giant, etown.com. Until the fall of 2009, Kevin was a senior editor at CNET, writing in-depth technical reviews of flat-panel TVs and front-projection systems.
Kevin is a charter member of the Imaging Science Foundation and has been an instructor of the ISF seminars since 2001, currently also teaching Level II ISF courses.
