Television Viewing At Its Finest

SpyderTV PRO scientifically measures and adjusts the display presets of any CRT, plasma, RPTV, LCD, LCoS ,DLP, or front projector display screen – and does it easily
and quickly. It was developed with the understanding that the standard adjustments that make up these presets – i.e., contrast, brightness, color, tint, and color temperature –
can be difficult for even the most experienced installer or technician to adjust optimally by eyesight alone. The Advanced Functionality Of SpyderTV PRO Delivers:

  • Support of superior grayscale. Through the system's easy-to-run wizard diagnostics, SpyderTV PRO measures cuts and gains, allowing the technician to adjust the gray scale for proper color of the display.
  • Customizable reporting. SpyderTV PRO gives dealers and other service providers the ability to customize their reports, including inserting their own logos on to each page or screen.
  • Easier-than-ever wizard interface. SpyderTV PRO offers a new "timeline" feature that allows the technician to jump to any step in the wizard-driven process, making it even user-friendlier.

Exceptional Imaging Across All Media

The Datacolor SpyderTV PRO comes bundled with Spyder2 PRO™ V2.2 software, "The professional's choice for monitor calibration," to support LCD, CRT and laptop computer monitors. This industry-leading digital imaging software package was developed for serious photographers and creative professionals to use when displaying images on monitors, in print or in the growing projector segment for presentations. Based on the iconic Spyder technology that has won accolades around the world, it includes front projector calibration and Ambient PreciseLight™ features and delivers true multiple monitor calibration support for both Mac and Windows systems.

Stunning Color For Converging Needs The all-new SpyderTV PRO is in keeping with the company's R &D philosophy for the PRO home theater market. It evolves the award-winning Spyder2 technology as new applications emerge that demand color excellence. With little more than a DVD player, laptop and USB port, integrators or their staff can use SpyderTV PRO to ensure dynamic displays on virtually any medium onsite – television, monitor or projector – maximizing customer satisfaction and sales opportunities for exceptional display calibration solutions that enhance the viewing experience, whatever the media.

"SpyderTV PRO is an easy addition for the service technician or installer, while still delivering a dynamic outcome. Consumers will experience a dramatic difference in
picture quality, whether the display is on a high-end flat screen, basic 36" TV, and LCD computer monitor or front projector. This all in one display calibration package is good
news for professionals who need to meet the challenge of a fast moving converging industry that expects dynamic color regardless of media," Atilgan concludes.
