Datacolor Press Release
The free Datacolor® SpyderGALLERY™ app offers a unique mobile solution for accurate picture viewing
Zurich / Dietlikon, 25 July 2013 –– Have you ever wished for accuracy and consistency in the images displayed on your mobile device while showing your work to someone? Datacolor (http://www.datacolor.com), a global leader in innovative colour management solutions, might have the answer to your needs, with its free SpyderGALLERY app, a unique mobile solution.
Datacolor is the first company worldwide to provide a custom calibration solution for colour-corrected viewing on iPhone®, iPad® and now also for Android® devices. The SpyderGALLERY app has been designed in collaboration with professionals, to enhance the way they show their work in today’s mobile world. A unique feature of the app allows instant comparison of an image in calibrated and uncalibrated views.
In today’s world, having access to a portable portfolio tool gives a competitive edge to photographers, by allowing them to keep up with a fast-paced environment. “Photographers, architects and creators no longer sit in their studio, but go and meet their clients using a tablet to display their work,” Thomas Kunz, Market Manager Consumer Segment at Datacolor, explains. “It is essential for them to be able to show consistently calibrated images of their work on their mobile devices.”
Thanks to the SpyderGALLERY app, the pictures shown on mobile devices are just as vivid as on a monitor, as well as clearly defined and appropriately saturated having more depth than uncalibrated images. Accurate images are therefore ensured across the entire workflow.
“I’ve had my tablet for nearly a year but have been disappointed in the lack of colour on its display,” emphasises professional photographer John Nollendorfs. “Using the SpyderGALLERY app, colours match my Spyder calibrated desktop screen perfectly. I can now use my tablet to show clients images from their sessions and I am confident they accurately show the quality of my work.”
Main reasons why a professional should download the SpyderGALLERY app:
- World’s first custom calibrated viewing on your iOS (iPhone or iPad) and Android (smartphone or tablet) devices
- Easy to use calibration utility for Mac® and Windows®
- Colour corrected viewing from your standard photo library albums, within the application
- Includes colour corrected viewing of Facebook and Flickr albums, within the application
