Datacolor Announces Distribution Agreement with ADI
ADI Will Carry Datacolor’s Award-Winning Line of Display Calibration Devices Including SpyderTV™, SpyderTV PRO 2007™ and ColorFacts Professional™ 7.0

Lawrenceville, NJ – May 22, 2007 – Datacolor, a world leader in color technology, today announced that ADI, a leading global wholesale distributor of security and low voltage products, will now carry Datacolor’s award-winning line of TV and monitor calibration products in its U.S. and Canada retail locations.

Datacolor products available in ADI stores will include SpyderTV™, SpyderTV PRO 2007™ and ColorFacts Professional™ 7.0.

ADI is also using Datacolor’s display calibration products in its High-Definition Video Training Series, being held in 20 cities across the United States. Conducted by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF), the High-Definition Video Training Series educates installers in HDTV set-up and professional video calibration techniques to improve their customer service offering and add
a new source of revenue.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to offer ADI’s customers our industry-leading calibration products,” said Rob Rosborough, Datacolor’s director of consumer product sales for North America. “The explosive growth of high-end televisions has made calibration one of the most requested services for installers, and Datacolor helps them achieve true color and create
value for their customers.”

The Consumer Electronics Association reported in February 2007 that 40 percent of consumers interested in upgrading their home entertainment systems are likely to pay for calibration as part of the upgrade.

“Datacolor’s line of display calibration products is a great fit for ADI,” said RJ Hirshkind, senior product manager for residential & commercial A/V at ADI. “By teaming up with Datacolor, and other leading manufacturers, to offer our High-Definition Training Series we are providing dealers with the right tools to successfully deliver HDTV solutions.”

Datacolor is a global color technology leader with more than 35 years experience helping professionals and consumers achieve the right color. SpyderTV PRO 2007 is an easy-to-use tool providing both home theater display and computer monitor calibration at a remarkable price.

Colorfacts Professional 7.0 offers a robust professional color calibration system for optimizing almost any display, including front projectors.
