4k and 5k Monitor Support
Posted by Oliver Mews on 04 February 2015 02:45 PM

A lot of users ask if the Spyder can calibrate 4k monitors and the 5k iMac.

Yes of course. All Spyder4 versions are compatible to calibrate these appropriate displays. Just keep in mind that Spyder4ELITE has the advanced option to do an interative grey balance, which increases the density of measuring points of your monitor's grey axis. This feature smoothens the profile and improves the profile's quality.

Mavericks & Spyder Product Line Compatibility
Posted by Oliver Mews on 04 November 2013 05:12 PM
We are pleased to inform you that we have found no global issues with the software for the Spyder product line when running under the new OS X 10.9 (Mavericks).
The SpyderCHECKR plugin for Adobe Camera RAW (Photoshop), Lightroom, and Hasselblad Phocus is working as expected. SpyderPRINT also works smoothly with Mavericks.
Spyder4EXPRESS/PRO/ELITE are working correctly for most customers, but we have found minor issues on certain systems. Fortunately we have been able to reproduce these problems, so we are now investigating. The calibration process works correctly in all cases and the profile can be calculated and activated normally. The SpyderProof feature to toggle calibration on and off does not work as expected on some systems under OS X 10.9. Toggling the language setting in System Preferences solves this issue for some users.
Please subscribe to our newsletter if you would like an update when we have a solution. Or, select the “Check for Software Updates” option in the Preferences section of your Spyder4 software, and you will be informed when a new version is available.

Do you have a color cast after calibrating the display?
Posted by Oliver Mews on 15 August 2013 07:31 AM

If your monitor is still color casted after you calibrated the display, it seems that you are working with Windows and an additional color adjusting tool.

There's a problem with a lost profile after booting up the system: This is a problem forced by the graphic drivers. Their control panels need longer to boot than the SpyderUtility which gave them the chance to overwrite the data we just wrote to the lookuptable of the graphic adapter.
Depending on your graphic card you can disable the control panel. For nVidia-Cards it's a program called either "nvcpl.dll" or "nwiz.exe" and for ATI it's a programm called "cli.exe". If your video card is an Intel card, they are called "hkcmd.exe", "igfxtray.exe" and "igfxpers.exe" that you will find the the command column (please widen the column to see it completely). All these programs will be started via the registry, so you'll need a startupmanager to disable them, or you can use the windows-tool "msconfig".

Once you have disabled the control panel the profile should stay loaded.
