WHY DO YOU NEED THE Spyder4tv hd™?
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 hd can measure these settings and make the necessary adjustments for optimum viewing in your environment.
Maximize 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 color 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.
Watch in True colors: TV color calibration results in natural colors that tend to reduce eyestrain and show you the picture the director intended.
Blu-ray players compatible: The Spyder4tv hd includes a special test pattern disc for Blu-ray players that makes it easy to optimize movie images displayed on the TV screen.
A Universal Solution: The Spyder4tv hd works with LCD, LED, Plasma, OLED, CRT and Front projectors. It is a universal solution for most TV models.
HOW DOES Spyder4tv hd™ WORK?
The Spyder4tv hd is a powerful tool that helps you manage the color displayed on your TV. It is a straightforward installation of the Spyder4TV software as the 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 up to 70″ screen size*. You then launch the calibration sequence and the software guides you through the process. The calibration process measures brightness, contrast, color, tint and color temperature. These measured values are analyzed and adjusted as required to give your TV the best picture possible.
