Colour Confidence has been appointed UK distributor of a series of new Pantone/Gretag Macbeth monitor calibration devices for consumers. Aiming to provide a calibration device for the photo hobbyist, as an alternative to the professional-orientated devices currently available, huey is designed with easy operation in mind. It can be adjusted depending on what the user is using their monitor for; be it playing games, looking at pictures or using the internet, and automatically corrects the monitor depending on changes to the room lighting. For those who want increased controls, Eye-One Display LT offers more advanced tools and includes a wizard to provide quick and accurate monitor calibration, while Eye-One Display 2 offers additional control over the gamma and whitepoint settings. The three products are the first to have been developed following a partnership between Pantone and GretagMacbeth that will see ‘colour management become accessible to a wide variety of users, from consumers to professionals’. Geoffrey Clements from Colour Confidence comments: ‘Monitor calibration is the first step toward accurate colour, and the addition of a complete range of Pantone products to handle this is definitely good news for consumers. We fully expect huey and the extended range to broaden the appeal of colour management even further.’ Compatible with Windows and Macintosh computers, all products are available now from www.colourconfidence.com. huey will cost around £69 (£59 +VAT), Eye-One Display LT £131.60 (£112 +VAT) and Eye-One Display 2 £194 (£165+ VAT).
