Datacolor Showcases Dynamic Viewing Optimization of SpyderTV To Professional Installers While Info Comm 2006 Opens– Breakthrough Color Calibration Technology Coincides With Major Communications Industry Event

LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ –June 5, 2006 – Datacolor, an internationally known name in color technology, showcases its consumer-oriented product for superior color calibration, SpyderTV™, as InfoComm sets to open at the Orlando Convention Center, June 3 – 9, 2006, in Orlando, FL. The largest event for the professional AV and information communications industry, InfoComm provides the perfect backdrop for an in-depth exploration of SpyderTV.

SpyderTV ( scientifically measures contrast, brightness, color, tint, and color temperature display presets of any CRT, plasma, RPTV, LCD or DLP display screen – and does it quickly and easily. SpyderTV is available in English, German, and French with Japanese, Chinese, and Korean to follow soon. With little more than a DVD player, laptop and USB port, professional installers or their staff can use awardwinning Spyder technology to accurately and easily adjust these menu sliders onsite, without the troubling subjectivity of adjusting by eyesight alone.

SpyderTV can be used at regular intervals for quick check-ups that ensure displays are optimally tuned or when new components are added into the system. Device independent and non-invasive, consumers also can use SpyderTV to determine optimal settings without fear of accessing areas of the display intended for professionals only.

A wizard-driven software package guides the process every step of the way. The product's R & D gurus Mark Hunter and Heath Barber, who joined Datacolor from professional home theater pioneer Milori, note that SpyderTV may become among the most essential tools for professional installers servicing the new "connected home" as it takes fine-tuning to another level.
" Datacolor SpyderTV helps installers improve the display on virtually any monitor, from high-end video screens to basic 36" TVs, without any invasive or time-consuming diagnostics," states Datacolor Technical Director of Home Theater Products Mark Hunter. "An off color can dim the glow of the highest end LCD display. Consumers will see a dramatic difference in their display, which will ensure overall satisfaction with their purchase. This is good news for the expanding home theater market," Hunter adds.Market analysts predict that the television of the future is an increasingly interactive, multimedia hub that rapidly brings all channels of media to the consumer market, linking entertainment, communication and information technology at affordable
prices. With the home theater trend converging, digital technologies are presenting new opportunities for innovation with the television as a focal point.
