ColorVision Spyder2 Suite |
"We developed this product with digital imaging’s most skilled and passionate buyers in mind. As users become more sophisticated, their expectations for quality - expressed as color quality - increase. They don’t want to become color scientists, but they do expect their monitors and printers to display their work at an extremely high level of image reproduction - in tone, balance, shadow and highlight. We evolved our Spyder technology, which basically created the color calibration category, into a next generation portfolio of products, including Spyder2 Suite. This product exemplifies ColorVision’s historic breakthrough value proposition," Datacolor Vice President Brian Levey explains.
ColorVision Spyder 2 Suite - Calibration of monitors
Based on the award-winning Spyder2 colorimeter, the standard for on-screen accuracy, ColorVision Spyder2 software precisely calibrates all CRT, LCD, and laptop displays. Its state-of-the-art optical science provides a five-fold increase in color sensitivity over previous technology with a patent-protected light baffle for accurate characterization of LCD displays. The sleek, dual-phase hardware design offers effortless calibration of all monitors yet it protects even delicate LCDs. Sophisticated programming automatically reproduces exceptional visual nuances, like gray balance, tone and highlights. ColorVision Spyder2 also offers users their own advanced feature set to create, compare and contrast extremely fine levels of RGB-based calibration.
Datacolor Spyder2 Suite - Calibration Wizard
Best of all, Spyder2 Suite leverages ColorVision’s trademark benefits, such as ease of use. Its Calibration Wizard offers comprehensive help throughout the entire process, so that users need not become color scientists in order to achieve stunning color results. A “before and after” viewing feature allows monitor comparison with and without calibration. The package’s sophisticated gray balance and tonal response algorithms are essential for optimal imaging on LCD screens.
Spyder2Suite - Software-only printer profiling tool
ColorVision Spyder2 Suite offers the industry's first stand-alone software-only printer profiling tool for fast, precise results - without a third party scanner - PrintFIX PLUS. Its elegant software design assists you, step by step, through each custom paper profile. Feature-rich tutorials give users all the help they need to achieve great prints - from the basics to not-so-basic guidance. Wizard assistance checks print quality, optimizes printer media settings, and assures that you use the right settings. The system's high-bit, tunable ICC printer profiles can be previewed at different rendering intents, while easy-to-use editing tools optimize prints to user requirements, even adjusting for viewing conditions; all within the wizard interface, for fast, easy results.
