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
Additional Features
  • StudioMatch enables visual fine-tuning of studio displays to match the way you see color
  • Built-in presets for video standards like Cineon, NTSC and PAL
  • Color analysis of your display quality by plotting uniformity, color gamut, and change over time, tone response and allowing comparison with other displays
  • Calibrate to professional workflow targets with L-Star tone response curve
  • Unlimited choices for gamma, white point, white luminance and black luminance
  • Iterative gray balance algorithm for the most accurate grays
  • Front projector calibration for color accurate presentations

is the pro4 elite worth that much more than the pro 4 ?
Asked by: Anonymous
It depends on your use. The Elite has unlimited color temperatures, unlimited gamma choices, studio match, and advanced ambient light measurement, and some other features. I would say for most people who just need a good calibration tool, the pro is great. The most important thing is that it has the same 7-color sensor. If you are aiming for 6500k, 2.2 gamma, brightness of 100cd/m2, and don't care about the rest, the express may even be good for you. Look at the comparison here. Go to Spyder4 website and look for product comparison. I would include the link if I could. It has side-by-side of all models.

Can this version be used to calibrate multiple monitors on one computer, in my case three of them?
Asked by: Irhad B.
Yes, you can. The only requirement is that you have the same software that's linked to the same calibrator.I'm using it on several computers.
