New from PANTONE, about the size of a marker pen, hueyPRO retains the innovative form of the original huey, as well as its ability to continually adjust the monitor as room lighting changes. With the addition of new software, hueyPRO offers increased control over brightness and contrast through separate menu choices that allow users to select gamma and white point settings. An improved Help function offers hints and workflow suggestions for improving color output.
Which huey is right for you?
huey: For enthusiasts just getting started with color management, huey takes less than five minutes to make onscreen color fidelity appropriate for viewing photos, playing games, creating graphics or browsing the Web. Unlike other color calibration tools on the market, huey is the first monitor calibrator to continually adjust for ambient lighting.
hueyPRO: Designed for hobbyists and professionals looking for greater color control and consistency when working between multiple monitors, hueyPRO packs advanced color correction functionality into an affordable package. Like its sibling huey, hueyPRO delivers professional results without requiring expertise in color management.
hueyPRO will be available in April 2007 online and at major electronics, photo, and online retailers for USD$129. huey is currently available online and at Apple stores, Circuit City, Office Depot, and Ritz Camera and its resellers for USD$89. Both devices work with LCD, CRT and laptop monitors and are compatible with Mac OSX 10.3.9 and higher. An upgrade for registered huey users will be available through Pantone.com.
For a limited time, hueyPRO will be bundled at no additional cost with the PANTONE 100 TOP COLORS/solid coated book. PANTONE 100 TOP Colors is a guide featuring the 100 most popular PANTONE Colors used in the graphic design industry, along with printing ink formulas and RGB values.
