Many of us have invested in high-quality television with the hope that we will receive an accurate and enjoyable viewing experience, yet many television screens purchased are set in a way that won’t provide the optimum performance they were built to display. The default settings for your TV are set by the manufacturer to make the most impact in the retail store, not necessarily in your living room. Spyder4TV is designed to calibrate and make adjustments to the brightness, contrast, colour, tint and colour temperature in order to create accurate colours for the home environment, all with an easy-to-use software program.
With the growing popularity of Blu-ray disc, DVD movies and HDTV programs that are available today, the digital images on your TV can look better than ever before. The Spyder4TV will measure the current settings of your TV and provide adjustments to bring the screen up to optimum viewing levels. Take control of your home theatre experience and you’ll be amazed at the improved level of performance you can achieve with a Spyder4TV calibration.
WHY DO YOU NEED THE Spyder4TV?
Improve upon TV default settings. The settings from various manufacturers vary and most likely will not meet your individual needs for your home environment or to properly calibrate your TV. The Spyder4TV can measure these settings and make the necessary adjustments for optimum viewing in your environment
Maximise the life of your TV. It is important that your TV has a balanced picture output to get the longest life possible. Creating a balanced picture by setting proper colour temperature and dynamic range helps assure your TV is not overdriving the display, which could lead to a shorter service life for your TV and higher power consumption.
A Universal Solution. The Spyder4TV works with LCD, LED, plasma, OLED, CRT and Front projectors. It is a universal solution for most TV models.
Blu-ray players compatible. The Spyder4TV includes a special test pattern disc for Blu-ray players that makes it easy to optimize movie images displayed on the TV screen.
HOW DOES Spyder4TV WORK?
The Spyder4TV is a powerful tool that helps you manage the colour displayed on your TV. It is a straightforward installation of the Spyder4TV software as a first step. Next, the Spyder device is placed on the screen with the help of the innovative SpyderWeb attachment device. This is our universal mounting system that securely holds the Spyder device against almost any TV size. You then launch the calibration sequence and the software guides you through the process. The calibration process measure brightness, contrast, colour, tint and colour temperature. These measured values are analysed and adjusted as required to give your TV the best picture possible.
