Datacolor has introduced an app for the Apple iPad that allows you to use its Spider3 color calibration system to calibrate the tablet's screen. The free SpyderGallery app can be used with both the iPad and iPad2 and allows all the images on the device to be viewed within a single color-corrected gallery. The app requires you to own the Spyder3 calibration tool (Express, Pro or Elite) and have access to a WiFi network. It is available for download now from the Apple's App Store.
Datacolor Launches New iPad Color Calibration Solution SpyderGallery
Free application allows Datacolor Spyder3 users to color calibrate iPad displays
and offers additional imaging features
LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. -- May 25 -- Datacolor (http://www.datacolor.com), a global leader in color management solutions, today announced the release of its SpyderGallery iPad app available for free download on the Apple App Store. Datacolor is the first to develop an app to allow for custom color profiling of iOS devices and is the first to provide a viewer to apply custom color corrections to images.
iPad users who download the SpyderGallery app can enjoy color corrected viewing of their photos in the standard photo library albums. The app provides an easy-to-use calibration utility for owners of Datacolor's Spyder3 display calibration solutions to create a custom color profile on their iPad. Using the Spyder3, the app will measure and profile color on the iPad and then apply color correction to images displayed through the SpyderGallery. Viewing images through the color-managed viewer will allow for more accurate colors and provide users with a closer match to desktop monitors and other color-managed displays.
"For photographers who use the iPad as a portable portfolio tool, SpyderGallery is a critical component to their photo gear to ensure work is being displayed correctly," said Knut Fenner, vice president of Imaging Color Solutions for Datacolor. "Those wanting to display images while on-the-go, whether for professional or personal use, will no longer need to compromise color accuracy for the convenience of the iPad."
"I've been using Datacolor products for over 10 years and the same calibration perfection I get with my monitor I now get on my iPad; that's amazing," said Sarah Silver, N.Y.-based fashion and beauty photographer.
