  • Details

    The Spyder4Elite monitor calibrator offers the highest level of monitor calibration, and projector profiling customisation. Developed for professional photographers, creative professionals, videographers, or anyone whereby precise, accurate colour is essential, Spyder4Elite provides the tools to manage multiple displays using a full set of gamma and non-gamma tone response curves to create custom workflow settings. The Spyder4Elite includes L-Star workflow and supports Cineon, NTSC, PAL and HDTV video standards.

    Spyder4Elite features a patented, full‐spectrum 7‐color sensor that can accurately characterise a variety of wide gamut and normal displays. Spyder4Elite software lets you use the same sensor to calibrate your computer, iPad and iPhone. No other calibrator has this capability. The fourth-generation sensor uses double‐shielded filters for longer life and better performance. On average, accuracy and precision are improved by 26% and 19% respectively.

  • Automated Color Calibration - Spyder4Eliteís intuitive process makes it straightforward to calibrate your displays to a reference condition. You can view and edit images with confidence on a display calibrated to show true‐to‐life colors and luminance adjusted for precise shadow/highlight detail.
  • Full‐spectrum color sensor - Spyder4Elites's patented 7‐color sensor improves upon colorimeters that use 3‐channel RGB sensors. Each Spyder4Elite unit is individually tuned in the factory to accurately handle a variety of wide‐gamut and normal gamut displays with ease.
  • Single sensor calibrates all your displays - Spyder4Elite works with your laptop, multiple monitors, television (with paid software upgrade on the Datacolor website), iPad and iPhone. It works with LCD, LED, OLED, CRT, DLP and other display technologies. You can calibrate multiple displays connected to your computer. Spyder4Elite is unique in its ability to calibrate all your display devices to achieve greater consistency.
  • Improved accuracy and stability - The fourth‐generation Spyder4Elite has double‐shielded color filters for an even closer match to CIE color standards and improved long term stability. Average accuracy increased by 26% and consistency between Spyder units has improved 19%.
  • Fast Re‐calibration Assistant - The "ReCALî feature makes it quick and easy to recalibrate your display to compensate for changes that occur over time.
  • Adapts display to surrounding light - The lighting around you will affect image contrast and appearance. An additional sensor on the Spyder4Elite detects changes to surrounding light and adapts the display luminance accordingly.
  • Spyder4Elite software options for greater control - For greater control over color management Spyder4Elite provides additional features: - StudioMatch enables visual fine‐tuning of studio displays to match the way you see color. - Built‐in presets for video standards such as Cineon, NTSC and PAL. - Color analysis of your display quality by plotting uniformity, color gamut, and change over time, tone response and allowing comparison with other displays. - Calibrate to professional workflow targets with L‐Star tone response curve. - Unlimited choices for gamma, white point, white luminance and black luminance. - Iterative grey balance algorithm for the most accurate greys. - Front projector calibration for color accurate presentations.
