You may think you have the ultimate TV package, what with your fancy BluRay player hooked up to your super 3D HD super widescreen plasma set… but how can you easily tell if it is fully calibrated? With so many options available, this isn’t an easy question to answer. The clever folks at Datacolor may have the solution in their latest box of tricks, the Spyder4TV HD controller.
Featuring an advanced ‘colourimeter’, the Spyder4TV offers improvements on the manufacturers colour settings by adjusting your televisions parameters for optimal performance. The software is easy to use and set up, measuring and adjusting your television brightness, colour, contrast, tint and temperature settings to produce a picture quality that is hard to beat.
As the follow up to the Spyder3TV, the Spyder4TV HD offers many improvements, including full BluRay support, compatibility with LCD, LED, OLED, CRT and front projectors and is capable of calibrating the majority of TV’s up to 70″ in size.
According to Dave Faulkner, Datacolor’s product manager, the Spyder4TV HD is an essential product for movie and sports buffs… “Natural colours and picture accuracy, displayed as intended by the director, will provide users with a superior picture quality unlike anything they’ve experienced before in the comfort of their home.” Certainly sounds like a sight for sore eyes, especially if they have been subjected to years of over-saturated colour-schemes.
The Spyder4TV HD is available to purchase now for £100, with a downloadable software upgrade kit for exiting users of the Spyder4TV or the Spyder4Elite available for £50 from the Datacolor website.
