Old Datacolor Instrument

There are many reasons for a product to reach its end of life, such as unavailability of parts for repair, technology innovations, or the products are no longer economical to continue supporting. At Datacolor, we are committed to provide you with the best customer services and take all these factors into consideration when discontinuing support for legacy products.

We recognize these support announcements may prompt you to evaluate your current operating environment and plan your solution roadmap. With this in mind, we are providing the information below to help you manage your transition, and to provide a clear understanding of the different service programs and assist you to migrate to the next generation of products and solutions.

Support Lifecycle Definitions

Current products

This refers to products currently manufactured and sold by Datacolor. These products are fully supported and are not included in this section.

End of sale products

This refers to products that are no longer manufactured by Datacolor. In some circumstances, customers can still order these products in small quantities from remaining inventory. Products in this phase have maintenance contract availability as well as technical support services.

End of support products

This refers to products that Datacolor can no longer provide spare parts replacement or repair services. This means no telephone or email support and no support on reinstallation. Any current application agreements will be honored but will not be renewed.

However, Datacolor can offer verification service for a limited time for our Spectrophotometers. Verification service provides basic verification of the instrument, but no replacement parts will be provided.

End of verification products

This refers to products that Datacolor can no longer provide verification services.
