Tomorrow’s Technology

 

Next generation Spyder technology comes with a compact, portable and protected colorimeter. We’ve redesigned Spyder’s patented 7-detector optical engine to deliver up to a 55% improvement in low luminance accuracy. The result is highly accurate shadow detail and smoother gradients.

Fast & Easy

 

The software is extremely easy to use thanks to a simple step-by-step wizard that guides you through the initial 5 minute calibration process. Applicable to all your desktop and laptop displays.
