Why Calibrate Your Monitor

Most monitors come out of the box with the brightness set too high and with over-saturated colors – plus they degrade over time. Another very important factor to ensure proper image editing and print matching, is having the correct room lighting conditions. Your display is the window into your digital image, you need to be able to trust it. Spyder5 calibrates your display to your environment and to an industry color reference standard to ensure your colors are accurate for better print matching. Your image editing will be easier and faster, you’ll spend less time in the ‘print-edit-print’ cycle, and you’ll waste less ink and paper.

Top 5 Reasons to Calibrate Your Display


  • Monitors display colors differently.

  • People see colors differently.

  • Prints don’t match your monitor.

  • Image colors are not true to life.

  • Save time and money.

Room Light Monitoring

Spyder5ELITE has an integrated room light sensor that continually measures your unique lighting conditions and alerts you if there’s been a change among five ambient light levels. You can then choose to either modify your calibration settings or adjust your room lighting, to assure optimal color accuracy, both on screen and in print.

True Color in A Flash

Spyder5ELITE creates a unique color profile for each of your monitors and adjusts their brightness level based on your room lighting. Say goodbye to time wasted on manually correcting your monitor’s preset settings without success. Now you can see the true colors of your photographs, both on screen and in print. Skin tones will be accurate and the blue sky you shot is going to look blue – not cyan.

Tomorrow’s Technology

Next generation Spyder technology comes with a colorimeter that’s compact, portable and protected. It includes a dual purpose lens cap and counterweight, and guarantees improved tonal response with the industry’s only patented 7-detector optical engine resulting in more accurate shadow detail and smoother gradients.

Easy To Use

Spyder5ELITE’s calibration process is fast and easy. A step-by-step wizard and additional advanced options guide you through the calibration process, then through evaluating your image. Evaluate your monitor’s color accuracy monthly using CheckCAL and then if needed, run ReCAL to recalibrate in minutes. In terms of calibration tools, it doesn’t get any easier.
