Datacolor has announced three editions of the Spyder4, the latest in the company's line of colorimeters for calibrating display color. Depending on model, the Spyder4 colorimeters can profile and calibrate monitors, laptop displays, TVs, projectors, iPads, and iPhones.
The new Spyder4 devices, called the Spyder4 Express, the Spyder4 Pro, and the Spyder4 Elite, offer improved color accuracy and low luminance performance compared to the Spyder3 devices.
The Spyder4 Express
can calibrate desktop and laptop displays, as well as iPad and iPhone displays. Its software limits the calibration target to a single gamma (2.2) and color temperature (6500K) combination. It's available now and costs US$119.
The Spyder4 Pro
can calibrate the same displays as the Express and for an additional cost can calibrate TVs. It offers four options each for target gamma and color temperature, and can also match multiple displays to each other. It's available now for US$169.99
The Spyder4 Elite
can calibrate monitors, laptop displays, projectors, iPads, and iPhones, and for an additional cost it can calibrate TVs. It offers unlimited custom calibration targets (gamma and color temperature) and can match multiple displays. It's available now for US$249.99.
