Press release by Datacolor
Datacolor, a global leader in color management solutions, has announced the release of Spyder5STUDIO, the next generation of its popular color calibration solution suite designed to color manage digital photo workflows. Spyder5STUDIO features a collection of tools that ensure photos are captured accurately, monitors display true-to-life colors, and prints are matched precisely.
Datacolor Spyder5STUDIO is designed for photographers who demand the highest level of control and accuracy. It includes the new Spyder5ELITE colorimeter, the color calibration solution that adjusts monitors to an industry color reference standard so colors are accurate and shadow and highlight details are preserved, ensuring on-screen images match photo prints. An important tool for all photographers, Spyder5ELITE assures true screen color, reducing editing time and providing better print matching so less ink and paper are wasted.
In addition to its display calibration solution, Spyder5STUDIO includes camera and print solutions: the SpyderCUBE, is a portable device for photographers to set white balance, exposure, black level and highlight references based on lighting conditions when shooting images. SpyderPRINT is a full-featured spectrocolorimeter used to create custom RGB printer profiles for all of your ink and paper combinations, to provide the most accurate screen-to-print matching. Combined, these tools enable photographers to capture consistent color from scene to camera and monitor-to-monitor, as well as quality printing results, enhancing the entire photo workflow.
“As a leader and longtime developer of color management products, we have seen firsthand the importance of color managing the workflow from start to finish,” said Heath Barber, Imaging Market Manager, Datacolor. “We have designed Spyder5STUDIO for professional and serious photographers seeking ultimate control of their entire workflow from capture, to edit, to print.”
The new Spyder5STUDIO is now available for $499.99 USD (offering a bundled savings of $180!) at photography and consumer electronics retailers nationwide or online at datacolor.com/spyder5studio-pr.
