Datacolor is one of the best when it comes to monitor calibration. Now the company has released a new calibration tool to add to its famous Spyder range. The SpyderX is its fastest, easiest and most accurate calibration device to date.



The new SpyderX has been redesigned from the ground up with a new lens-based colour engine 'that provides significantly increased colour accuracy and low light capabilities,' according to Datacolor, and ‘features higher light sensitivity and more advanced sensors.’ 

Not only does Datacolor profess that their new release is more accurate than its predecessors, but it’s fast, super fast. The SpyderX brings down that 10 minute calibration time to less than two minutes.
