ColorvisionDatacolor, the internationally known name in color technology announced the latest updated V1.0.3 software for ColorVision ColorPlus, part of the PANTONE COLORVISION product line. Now available in 8- languages – English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and Chinese (Traditional and simplified) with an all new easy to use wizard and interface. ColorPlus is an affordable monitor calibration tool for consumers and photo hobbyists that calibrates a monitor to produce stunning photos in a few easy steps. Datacolor has chosen to exhibit the ColorVision Digital Imaging product line at TechZones "Flash Forward 2.0: Bringing Digital Imaging into Focus" Central Plaza Booth # 24 &26.
Datacolor debuts ColorVision ColorPlus UpdatePreviously driven by professionals alone, the demand for precision color in digital imaging - still and moving - has inspired the Colorvision Product line to expand distribution of digital color tools to consumer retail outlets.

ColorPlus is an entry level screen color correcting product for digital camera enthusiasts which offers sophisticated easy to use color tools for professional looking images, on screen. The award winning ColorVision Spyder technology, introduced over four years ago for digital photofinishers and professional photographers has yielded this new entry product from the PANTONE COLORVISION family of products for consumer electronic retailers in 2005.

One in four households own a digital camera, 73 billion digital pictures were saved to computer hard drives worldwide in 2003. This figure is expected to grow to 170 billion by 2007. Professionals know that digital devices, including cameras, monitors and printers, reproduce color differently. The most common cause of disappointment with digital photographs, on screen and in print, comes from an un-calibrated monitor. This is because monitor performance changes over time as luminance degrades and phosphors and dyes age. Knowing this, professionals calibrate their monitors at least once a month.

"Digital camera sales have exploded over the past few years and this strong growth is expected to continue," states Brian Levey vice president of DataColor. "As consumers become more comfortable with the technology, they will begin to focus more on the quality and how they can create better and better prints. Interest in tools that help consumers get better results from their digital pictures is going to be one of the next growth areas in this market."

ColorPlus is a Windows-compatible hardware color sensor that corrects CRT, LCD and notebook monitors for accurate, reliable and consistent color - day-to-day and image-to-image - so that colors look their best and brightest. It produces a wider range of colors, better flesh tones, more defined shadows and realistic highlights.
Users save time, ink and paper by printing their photos right the first time with less trial and error. With ColorPlus, consumers can now use the same tools as the pros to make their images studio quality. The ColorPlus sensor connects to a computer via USB and is then attached to a CRT/LCD monitor during the calibration process. The device is driven by an intuitive software and graphical user interface that offers ease of use for consumers in a few simple steps to balance screen colors.

"In less than four years, the price of a five- to six-mega-pixel camera has dropped from over $10,000 to around $500," states Levey. "With the explosive adoption rate of digital imaging, the need for monitor calibration has grown exponentially. Monitor calibration devices were considered luxury items only professionals could afford, but Pantone and ColorVision have now made it possible for all digital photo enthusiasts to afford this necessary component of the digital darkroom."

ColorPlus is part of the next generation of the award-winning PANTONE COLORVISION family of products, which includes the all-new ColorVision Spyder2 and ColorVision Spyder2PRO Studio and just released at CES this year, ColorVision Spyder2 Plus.

PANTONE COLORVISION offers a 30-day money-back guarantee and unlimited, free e-mail and telephone support. As updated software is released, registered owners with a valid serial number can download free upgrades from the ColorVision Web site @
