We profile CDs

Ever profile a CD?  We used to profile CDs more often when the technology was new. Since then it has become fairly easy to profile the sheets of adhesive label materials which are then applied to the CDs.

But more recently Teac has come out with a dye sublimation printer that prints directly onto the CD itself:

We can profile that too!  This illustration is a set of CD targets we developed for use in profiling printers like this.

What can we do for you?

Datacolor announces the Spyder4

Just when you think X-Rite has cornered the market on display calibrators with its new i1 Display Pro, here comes Datacolor with a new Spyder4!

This new device has 7 color sensors instead of the the usual 3.  The software has added capability to do uniformity testing, better matching of multiple monitors, and they will be providing some means of correcting color on an iPhone/iPad.

I'll be looking forward to testing this in the future.
