The SpyderX (Pro and Elite) by Datacolor (summer 2019) are a radical departure from the technology used in all preceding generations of screen calibrators offered by this manufacturer.
Unlike the Spyder 1 thru Spyder 5 — which use a 7-component color filter and a honeycomb matrix before it — both SpyderX models use for the first time a lens that projects the light from the analyzed screen surface onto the device sensor. This is the same principle that has been used by the medium and high class color calibrators manufactured by the main competitor of Datacolor: the X-Rite ColorMunki Display and i1Display Pro.
This solutions brings higher measurement precision, less influence from the environment, and most importantly: much faster sampling. The Spyder X units can complete a full screen calibration in under 2 minutes, which is the absolute record. Such celerity allows you to start every work day with a freshly calibrated display, should you chose to!
Also unlike previous series, the Spyder X range now includes two models only. The SpyderX Pro is intended for use at home or the office for photographic and designer work. The Spyder X Elite comes with a full range of additional features that are required for professional printing, television and movie work.
