Datacolor has announced SpyderHD, a colour calibration suite for advanced and professional photographers and videographers.
SpyderHD is designed to colour manage photo and video workflows, from scene, camera and editing, to final output. SpyderHD includes the new Spyder4 ELITE HD integrated display calibration application, 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 inches.
In addition to display calibration offerings, SpyderHD consists of two important camera solutions: the SpyderCHECKR, a powerful colour 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 colour day-to-day and camera-to-camera, enhancing their entire digital workflow.
"As a longtime developer of colour management products, we see the convergence of the still and motion markets first-hand," says C. David Tobie, product and technology manager for Datacolor. "We designed SpyderHD to be compatible with both photo and video workflows, offering digital imaging professionals a complete colour solution to simplify their digital workflow at an unmatched performance for the price."
SpyderHD is available immediately for £229 (excl. VAT) at photo and video retailers or online at the Datacolor website
