Color management solutions company Datacolor has announced SpyderX, its fastest and easiest to use monitor color calibration tool to date.

The new tool has been redesigned from the ground up with a new color engine 'that provides significantly increased color accuracy and low light capabilities,' according to Datacolor.

One of the standout improvements is the decrease in time it takes to calibrate a monitor or projector. Compared to the five minutes previous Datacolor tools required to calibrate a device, the new SpyderX tool takes less than two minutes once the appropriate software is downloaded.

The redesigned device is also more precise than ever with improved levels of color accuracy and shadow detail recognition.

The SpyderX is available in two varieties: Spyder Pro, which 'is designed for serious photographers and designers seeking a fast and easy-to-use monitor calibration solution' and Spyder Elite, which 'takes it one step further with more advanced settings for professional photographers and videographers who want ultimate control of their color workflow.' SpyderX devices are available for $169.99 and $269.99, respectively, at Datacolor's online store and authorized Datacolor retailers.
