Datacolor SpyderHD Color Calibration Bundle
From Datacolor:
 
Integrated color management tools for imaging professionals seeking an all-in-one solution
 
Lawrenceville, NJ – April 7, 2014 – Datacolor, a global leader in color management solutions, today announced SpyderHD, the premiere color calibration suite for advanced and professional photographers and videographers. SpyderHD is designed to color manage photo and video workflows, from scene, camera and editing, to final output.
 
SpyderHD includes the new Spyder4ELITE HD integrated display calibration application; the first of its kind, with calibration functions for computer displays, video reference displays, and TVs, all within a single application. SpyderHD also includes the innovative SpyderWEB, a universal mounting system that securely mounts the Spyder for calibration of most screens up to 70”.
 
“As a photographer who has been calibrating for a long time, I understand the value of color calibration. SpyderHD is my preferred solution for tonal linearity in computer display calibration, and beats my personal calibration technique for video reference display calibration,” says Lee Varis, renowned Hollywood photographer.
 
In addition to display calibration offerings, SpyderHD includes two important camera solutions: the SpyderCHECKR, a powerful color reference and gray card system, and the portable SpyderCUBE, which provides white balance, exposure, black level and highlight references in any lighting condition. Combined, these tools enable photographers and videographers to capture consistent color day-to-day and camera-to-camera, enhancing their entire digital workflow.
 
“There is nothing else like the SpyderCUBE; the value of it is hard to over-emphasize for defining the light sources in a shot,” continued Varis. “Also, I find the SpyderCHECKR to provide all the camera color correction I need, for both photo and video.”
 
SpyderHD is available immediately for $349.00 USD at photo and video retailers. For more information, visit www.datacolor.com/spyder-hd-pr.

For anyone who views images via tablets or smartphones – and for on-the-go photographers in particular – they should think about color calibration. Tablet and phone displays are amazing, but are they always accurate?
 
The Android version joins the previously available iOS SpyderGALLERY app. Using a Spyder4 calibration device, Android users can now enjoy color-managed image viewing in the SpyderGALLERY app, which accesses existing photo albums to display accurately calibrated, vibrant images. Viewing images through the color-managed viewer will allow for more accurate color and provide users with a closer match to desktop monitors and other color-managed displays.
 
You can get the SpyderGALLERY app for Android in the Google Play store. The iOS application is available in the Apple Store.
