Manufacturer’s Description

Expert Colour Accuracy
Expert colour calibration for laptops, desktops and projectors with room light monitoring and unlimited settings for gamma, white point and advanced grey balancing, for ultimate control of your colour workflow.

True colours - on screen and in print
Break free from the frustration of your prints not matching your screen. Spyder5ELITE determines optimal monitor brightness so you can see the fine shadow details and highlights in your photos, ensuring your edited images match your prints.
Room Light Monitoring
Spyder5ELITE has an integrated room light sensor that continuously measures your unique lighting conditions and alerts you if there's been a change among five ambient light levels. You can then choose to either modify your calibration settings or adjust your room lighting, to assure optimal colour accuracy, both on screen and in print.

Easy to Use
Spyder5ELITE's calibration process is fast and easy. A step-by-step wizard with additional advanced options, guides you through the calibration process, then through evaluating your image. Evaluate your monitor's colour accuracy monthly using CheckCAL and then if needed, run ReCAL to recalibrate in minutes. In terms of calibration tools, it doesn't get any easier.
Tomorrow's Technology
Next generation Spyder technology comes with a colorimeter that is compact, portable and protected. We've redesigned Spyder's patented 7-detector optical engine to deliver up to a 55% improvement in low luminance accuracy, resulting in more accurate shadow detail and smoother gradients.

Personalized Before and After with SpyderProof
To see the nuances that matter most with a Before and After evaluation of your calibration results in full screen mode using your own photograph, or with a professional Datacolor composite image. The choice is yours. Designed for the way photographers work, SpyderProof gives you confidence that your displays achieve precise colour accuracy.    

Advanced Control for Matching Multiple Displays
SpyderMatch and SpyderTune are two advanced features that allow you to fine-tune all of your studio monitors by matching Brightness, White Point, and Gamma. These controls give you the ultimate flexibility to make each of your monitors look identical.

Expert Control
With features like fine-tune grey calibration and unlimited choices for gamma, white point, and luminance, Spyder5ELITE give you the ultimate control in colour calibration resulting in a perfectly calibrated monitor. Whether you use the simple step-by-step wizard or the Expert Console, you can be confident that you are using the best tool available to ensure the colors you see on screen are accurate and your prints match.
Display Analysis
Spyder5ELITE includes a powerful module that lets you fully characterize your monitor, and track its performance over time with reporting. The software allows you to compare gamuts between displays and standard colour spaces, analyse and graph luminance and colour uniformity, map tone response curves, and measure and graph display accuracy against SpyderCHECKR colour targets. These tools give you an easy way to monitor and compare the overrdingly.
