MONITOR CALIBRATION HAS NEVER BEEN
FASTER | MORE ACCURATE | EASIER

Why you should calibrate
your monitor

Photography is a labor of love, and we know a lot goes into every shot you take. Don’t let an uncalibrated monitor get in the way of achieving your vision.

With SpyderX, you can be sure that what you see on screen is the most accurate representation of the shot you took. When you start editing and you know the color on your monitor is accurate, you can confidently control every aspect of your image. And when it’s time to print, your output will match what you are seeing on screen and better reflect your creative vision.

What makes SpyderX the
best Spyder ever

SUPERIOR COLORIMETER TECHNOLOGY

Based on years of research, SpyderX is a completely new, more accurate way of measuring color. Our groundbreaking lens-based color engine technology features higher light sensitivity and more advanced sensors, so you can experience significantly more precise screen color, white balance and shadow detail.

INTUITIVE SOFTWARE

Whether you are looking for a quick calibration or an expertly customized color profile, SpyderX gives you easy-to-use solutions. SpyderX Pro offers One-click Calibration and Step-by-step Assistant modes. SpyderX Elite offers these modes plus an Expert Console mode with unlimited calibration choices. Both Spyder models feature interactive help every step of the way.

CALIBRATE ALL OF YOUR MONITORS

SpyderX allows you to calibrate multiple laptops and desktop monitors and supports the latest display technologies, so you can be confident that your colors are always accurate no matter which of your computers or displays you are working on. SpyderX Elite can also calibrate front projectors and features StudioMatch™, which creates a target that is shareable between attached displays and other computers.

SPYDERPROOF – BEFORE & AFTER

With our SpyderProof feature, you’ll see the difference right before your eyes. Just one click allows you to compare your monitor colors before and after calibration and see the nuances that matter most. Try it with a Datacolor composite image or upload your own favorite photos. With SpyderX Elite, you can even see images full screen.

ROOM LIGHT MONITORING

SpyderX features an integrated ambient light sensor that can measure your room light throughout the day allowing you to adjust your display brightness and contrast to ideal levels. The software can either warn you to recalibrate or do it automatically using custom profiles based on light level. Both SpyderX Pro and Elite feature 5 levels of ambient light adjustment.

MONITOR PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS

It’s important to know how your monitors perform during color-critical work. With the SpyderX Display Analysis feature, you can better understand the color, brightness, contrast, gamut, tone response and white point of your monitors. With SpyderX Elite, you can also check screen brightness and color uniformity and display color accuracy.

SOFTPROOF FEATURE WITH SPYDERX ELITE

Your on-screen images may look different when you print or view them on other devices such as tablets. Softproof, only available with SpyderX Elite, lets you simulate and view these changes on your calibrated screen. For printers, you can see how prints will look for a specific printer model, paper and ink, and upload ICC printer profiles.

“I spend a few hours getting something ready to print and I want the print to match the screen, otherwise, what’s the point of all that work?”

Supported Display Technologies – FAQ

How Do I Determine My Display Backlight Type?
SpyderX asks you to choose the backlight type used in your display, in order to produce a more precise calibration. Display Manufacturers are not always clear about display technology. The process below will assist in finding the right backlight type to select in your SpyderX software.

How do I Find My Display Information?
Do a web search on the manufacturer and model number of your display. Find the manufacturer’s info for your model either on their own site, or on a reseller site.

Is My Display Wide Gamut LED?
First check to see if the display is described as “Wide Gamut”, “AdobeRGB Gamut”, “AdobeRGB Color Space” or “% AdobeRGB” with a percentage number greater than 80%. If so, your display is Wide LED. With Apple Displays, being called “Display P3” or “P3 Color” describes a wide gamut display. For non-Apple displays, please check the section on Blue Green LEDs below, as there are a few Wide Gamut Displays built using BG LED technology, which may calibrate a bit better with that setting selected.

Is My Display Standard Gamut LED?
If your display is not described with any of the Wide Gamut, AdobeRGB or P3 descriptions above, but is described with the term LED, then it’s a Standard LED display. If it is not described as LED, but was manufactured in the last several years, its Standard LED anyways, as that is the current method used to manufacture screens.

Is My Display a Pre-LED Screen?
Apple displays before 2009, and other displays of a similar, or slightly newer age, may have CCFL fluorescent backlights. There are not a lot of such displays still in use, as the fluorescent tubes tend to dim or burn out with age. If your display info includes the terms “CCFL” or “Fluorescent”, or if it is from that era, then choose General as your display type, and consider purchasing a new display in the near future.

Is My Display a Green Blue LED Screen?
Green Blue LEDs were first manufactured in 2013 and are fairly rare. LG developed the technology and used it in its AH-ISP screens, under its own name, and also in Dell displays such as the U3014 and UP2716D. Samsung PLS panels also used BG LED technology. If your wide gamut display info does not mention “BG-LED” “AH-ISP” or “PLS”, or is from another manufacturer, then it’s unlikely it’s BG LED, and can be best characterized as Wide LED.

What If I’m Calibrating a Projector?
Projectors will not show significant effect from these settings. Using General for all projectors is recommended.
