What About This?


Datacolor’s Spyder4Elite is a display color calibration tool well-suited for photographers, videographers and video editors who require the highest level of color control in the studio as well as flexibility in post-production.

The Spyder4Elite features a full-spectrum 7-color sensor that can accurately characterize a variety of wide-gamut and normal displays. Calibrate your monitor, laptop computer or projector. If you have an iPad or iPhone, you can even calibrate them after installing the SpyderGALLERY app (which is free for all Spyder4 and Spyder3 users). The fourth-generation sensor employs double-shielded filters for longer life and optimal performance. Additionally, several useful step-up features are available that afford greater control.

Automated Color & Brightness Calibration
Simple, clear, automated process makes it straightforward to calibrate your displays to a reference condition. You can view and edit images with confidence on a display calibrated to show true-to-life colors and luminance adjusted for precise shadow/highlight detail

Full-Spectrum Color Sensor
Patented 7-color sensor improves upon colorimeters that use 3-channel RGB sensors. Each Spyder4Elite unit is individually tuned in the factory to accurately handle a variety of wide-gamut and normal gamut displays with ease

Single Sensor Calibrates All Your Displays
Works with your desktop, multiple monitors, front projector, television (with paid software upgrade on website); works with LCD, LED, OLED, CRT and other display technologies. You can calibrate multiple displays connected to your computer

Calibrate iPad/iPhone Using Free App
The SpyderGALLERY app can be downloaded to your iPad or iPhone from the iOS App Store. It’s an easy to use calibration utility for Mac and Windows, and even includes integration with Facebook and Flickr services. Once downloaded, you can enjoy color corrected viewing from your standard photo library albums and confidence in knowing your display is accurate for all photos

Improved Accuracy & Stability
The fourth generation Spyder4Elite has double-shielded color filters for an even closer match to CIE color standards and improved long-term stability. Average accuracy increased by 26% and consistency between Spyder units has improved 19%

Fast Re-Calibration Assistant
The “ReCAL” feature makes it quick and easy to recalibrate your display to compensate for changes that occur over time

Adapts Display to Surrounding Light
The lighting around you will affect image contrast and appearance. An additional sensor on the Spyder4Elite detects changes to surrounding light and adapts the display luminance accordingly
