Spyder4Elite is a display color calibration solution designed not only for photographers, but also videographers and video editors who need the highest level of color control in the studio and flexibility in post production. The Spyder4Elite can also provide color calibration for projectors.
Spyder4Elite features a patented, full spectrum 7 color sensor that can accurately characterize a variety of wide gamut and normal displays. Spyder4Elite software lets you use the same sensor to calibrate your monitor, laptop computer, iPad, iPhone and projector. No other calibrator has this capability. The fourth generation sensor uses double shielded filters for longer life and better performance. On average, accuracy and precision are improved by 26% and 19% respectively.
Automated Color & Brightness Calibration
Spyder4Elite's simple, clear and 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
Spyder4Elite's 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
Spyder4Elite works with your laptop, multiple monitors, front projector, television (with paid software upgrade on website), iPad and even iPhone. It works with LCD, LED, OLED, CRT, DLP and other display technologies. You can calibrate multiple displays connected to your computer. Spyder4Elite is unique in its ability to calibrate all your display devices to achieve greater consistency.
Improved accuracy and 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.
Spyder4Elite software options for greater control
For greater control over color management Spyder4Elite provides additional features:
StudioMatch enables visual fine tuning of studio displays to match the way you see color.
Built in presets for video standards such as 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 grey balance algorithm for the most accurate greys.
Front projector calibration for color accurate presentations.

Photographers, designers and imaging professionals can work confidently on a properly color-calibrated screen and can assert greater control over the color fidelity of their digital process. Images can be reliably assessed and adjusted on a properly calibrated display, enabling true-to-life reproduction of image files.
How Does Spyder4ELITE Work?
Spyder4ELITE automates and simplifies display calibration. Install the software, attach the color sensor to USB, and step through the wizard. The sensor measures a series of colors on your screen and creates a “profile” that brings your display to a reference state. At the end, you can preview how the images look before and after calibration.
Why Calibrate Your Display?
Displays render the same image differently: Calibration tunes your display to a reference standard and brings color consistency across desktop, laptop, multiple displays, televisions, projectors, iPad and iPhone. Displays change over time: Recalibration returns it to reference state for brightness and color Prints often do not match display: Display calibration provides a base for better print matching Wide gamut displays may be oversaturated: Without calibration even wide-gamut displays may be inaccurate. Highlight and shadow details may be inaccurate: Control of brightness, white point and tone response with calibration. Image colors are not true to life: After calibration, images can be viewed and edited with confidence
