SpyderTV - Optimize Your TV's Color Settings
Looking to enhance your color settings on your TV? You might want to check out the SpyderTV. The $250 device claims to calibrate your color settings on about any TV:
Have you ever noticed that all the TVs in a retail showroom look different and wondered which one was right? If any? Have you ever tried to adjust your TV settings to get a better picture and never quite gotten it right? SpyderTV takes the guesswork out of improving your TV picture. It doesn’t rely on the human eye, which is subjective. Instead it uses the Spyder, a scientific colorimeter that replaces the human eye. SpyderTV will:
- Allow you to see your favorite shows and movies just as the director intended.
- Increase the realism of your programs by extending highlight and shadow detail.
- Enhance your TVs dark images for better visibility — If you’re a gamer you will really love this benefit.
- Improve your overall viewing experience and give you the satisfaction of knowing that your TV has the optimum settings for your set-up.
The way it works is:
The Datacolor SpyderTV colorimeter and software deliver an easy-to-use solution for optimizing any TV for a better viewing experience. SpyderTV scientifically measures contrast, brightness, color, tint, and color temperature presets on your TV and helps you make the necessary adjustments to dramatically improve your picture quality. SpyderTV supports Plasma, RPTV, DLP, LCD and CRT TVs.
The SpyderTV sensor is attached to your laptop or desktop computer using a USB cable, and then attaches to the front of your TV screen. Then the sensor analyzes the test patterns on the DVD. Based on the information it sees, the software running on your computer instructs you how to adjust your settings accurately without any guesswork. The SpyderTV is like an electronic "eye" that makes scientific measurements and tells you how to make the right adjustments that would be impossible to make with the human eye alone.
If you use the SpyderTV, let us know what you think.
