Pantone has introduced the HueyPro monitor calibration system. The HueyPro is designed for photographers and creative professionals to improve colour clarity and consistency across multiple CRT, laptop and LCD displays.

The company says that while the original Huey made the complicated task of monitor calibration simple and approachable, the new HueyPro offers additional functionality for users who frequently print photos and other graphics, share them between monitors or upload them to Web sites.

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 colour output.

"Monitor calibration is the first step to controlling colour in a digital workflow, yet many designers and photographers still don’t calibrate and profile their monitors," said Helmut Eifert, vice president of Pantone Europe. "By offering easy to use, professional features, we hope to build awareness for the importance of monitor calibration in the colour management process."

The hueyPro is compatible with Mac OS X 10.3/4 and Windows 2000/XP/Vista, and will be available in April 2007 for £88 plus VAT. A software update to turn the standard Huey into the HueyPro will be available from the Pantone Web site, though pricing for this has not been announced.
