Includes These Great Features
Advanced Display Mapping & Analysis
Get a better understanding of the color, brightness, contrast, gamut, tone response and white point of your monitors. You can also check screen brightness, color uniformity, and display color accuracy.
Side-by-side Multiple Computer/Display Calibration
Studio Match provides simultaneous side-by-side calibration for multiple computers/displays. Ensures consistent and accurate color reproduction across multiple connected monitors with most monitor types.
Video and Cinema Targets
Experience a more concise user interface (UI) experience.
Rec. 709, Rec. 2020
Unlimited Calibration Settings
Starting with industry-standard presets, you can customize settings to meet all your calibration needs, including fully customizable gamma curves, white point, and brightness settings.
Allows you to simulate other displays and devices on your calibrated screen. For printers, you can see how prints will look for a specific printer model, paper and ink, and upload ICC printer profiles.
Room Light Monitoring
An integrated ambient light sensor measures your room light throughout the day allowing you to adjust your display brightness and contrast to ideal levels. The software can either warn you to recalibrate or do it automatically using custom profiles based on light level.
How it works
Display calibration optimizes your monitor’s color performance and accuracy for your workflow (photography, videography, etc.). This quick and easy process measures, evaluates and corrects your monitor display for an accurate view into your digital world.
Spyder monitor calibrators create an ICC display profile that is used by the video card and color managed software in your computer’s operating system. A calibrated display enables your computer to show a true color representation of your image file within your editing software so you can make accurate editing decision to create the look you want.
Spyder X2 makes calibration accurate and easy, helping you each step of the way.
Download, install and launch the Spyder software. You’ll be prompted to answer a few questions about your display and workflow which will be saved for future calibrations.
Place the Spyder device on your display within the outline and let the Spyder software go to work. It will take a series of measurements to build the ICC profile and help you adjust your display’s brightness.
When the measurements are completed, remove the sensor from your display and save the profile which remains housed in your computer to be used for this monitor moving forward. You can always simply delete the profile to return to your monitor’s factory default settings.
What's in the box?
- 1 x Spyder X2 Elite colorimeter
- 1 x USB-C to USB-A Adapter
Supports most modern display types.
Note: As OLED has become more widely available, so too are the different types of OLED display technology. While it may be possible to use the Spyder X/X2 to calibrate certain types of OLED displays, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the resulting calibration. Currently, we do not recommend using a Spyder X/X2 to calibrate any type of OLED display for color-critical applications.
