Additional Datacolor products can be found at the WYNIT booth (LVCC South Hall 3 Booth #30359).

Available immediately, ColorFacts Professional 7.0 will ship with Datacolor's Spyder Platinum Colorimeter. Together, they provide an easy-to-use professional color calibration system for optimizing all front projectors, RPTVs, Direct View TVs, Digital DLPs, LCDs and Plasma video displays to industry standards.
