Lawrenceville, NJ – September 21, 2023 – Datacolor, a global leader in colour management solutions, introduces the Spyder Checkr Video, a cutting-edge colour reference tool that works with video vectorscopes, waveform monitors and a variety of professional video editing software solutions to ensure accurate video colour and exposure. Spyder Checkr Video offers the ability to quickly and precisely colour calibrate one or more camera and lens combinations, ensuring color accuracy at the start of shooting, streamlining the post-production workflow for a seamless video editing experience.
When viewed through a vectorscope, the patent pending Spyder Checkr Video Colour Pattern Card creates a circular pattern of colours allowing users to see all of the colours being captured – not just primary and secondary hues – at a glance. This precise, nuanced colour information is intuitive and easy to understand for both video novices and professionals alike.
The Color Pattern Card includes 12 colour patches in a unique configuration with a center black, grey and white patch, plus six skin tone tiles. The portable system comes with 5 high-gloss target cards, a 22-step gradient grey-scale card, a solid, neutral grey card for white balance and a focus star card, along with a protective case. The high gloss cards provide for more saturated colour, wider colour gamut and easier flare identification.
The Spyder Checkr Video case is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in the hand to reduce fatigue and handling errors while shooting, as well as prevent fingers from casting shadows onto the cards.
“When designing the Spyder Checkr Video, our goal was to create a portable and user-friendly colour reference chart that would set a new benchmark in the industry,” said Casey Krugman, product manager at Datacolor. “With the first-of-its-kind advanced colour reference tool, Datacolor is providing quick and impeccable colour accuracy whether you’re on the go or working on location.”
The Spyder Checkr Video is available now (£139.99) at Datacolor, Amazon or with authorised retailers. For more information about Spyder X2 Checkr Video, please visit https://www.datacolor.com/spyder/products/spyder-checkr-video.
