Datacolor Announce Spyder3 Line Up

Spyder3 Studio Family of calibration devices
Datacolor announced the addition of Spyder3Pro and Spyder3Print to its new Spyder3 range of monitor calibration and printer profiling solutions. Their Spyder3Pro solution offers an affordable display calibration tool for serious and professional photographers. Spyder3Print is a printer-profiling device which is aimed at fine art printers and production professionals.

Spyder3 colorimeter offers a seven-detector colour engine, the only one of its kind on the market. The colorimeters 27mm aperture is the largest in its class, and provides a greater screen sampling area and a 400 per cent increase in light sensitivity. When used in conjunction with the embedded ambient light sensor, which automatically measures surrounding ambient light levels even when stored in its cradle, the Spyder3Pro will enable users to achieve the highest levels of precision and calibration for your display devices.

Spyder3Print is the perfect complement for the Spyder3Pro and Spyder3Elite. The printer calibration device enables users to create custom printer profiles by using an updated Datacolor 1005 spectrocolorimeter and colour calibration tile with tracking ruler for more accurate readings, Spyder3Print enables the production of professional-looking prints quickly and accurately, by avoiding the wasteful trial-and-error process of uncalibrated devices.

Spyder3Elite uses an enhancement of the feature set offered by Spyder3Pro. Spyder3Elite uses dual-mode software that allows the calibration of multiple displays in a studio via either an easy to use walkthrough wizard guide or its expert console, which gives advanced users full control of all settings. The Spyder3 elite is also the only device in its category, which is able to calibrate front projectors.

Spyder3Studio is Datacolor's complete colour management suite. Spyder3Studio combines the powerful features of Spyder3Elite’s display calibration with the excellent printer profiling functions of Spyder3Print. These tools will make the job of controlling the accuracy of your display and output devices a breeze. For more information visit Datacolor.
