They demonstrate the use of the SpyderCHECKR device for camera characterization / profiling and white balance, the SpyderCUBE for color balance control and dynamic range, and the Spyder4ELITE HD calibration device for controlling individual editing displays, displays clustered in desktop workstations and in workgroups. The use of this device for field display calibration, such as with the Atomos Samurai Blade, will also be discussed.
