Product Description

It’s all about the color: Color in your photos. Color in your designs. And it all starts with accurate color on your screen. Photographers understand that a color-managed workflow is essential to obtain true color from capture, to edit, to print; but what you see on-screen is only as accurate as your display. Over time, the color performance of monitors changes – phosphors and liquid crystals fade, causing the display to drift into unknown colors. hueyPRO automatically brings back the true colors, so whether you are editing photos to print, sell or share with others, gaming or shopping on-line, you deserve to see the right color on your display. The hueyPRO delivers extensive controls in an affordable, easy-to-use solution designed to calibrate and profile all types of LCD and CRT displays. Each package includes an emission-only colorimeter with ambient measurement capabilities and intuitive software. Designed with the same advanced optical color sensors as the i1Display product family, hueyPRO’s optical sensors provide the same accurate on-screen color that used to only be available to professionals, PLUS automatically measures the ambient light within a room for precision calibration. Even after the calibration process, hueyPRO will observe the light falling on the display and apply your personal preferences for viewing accuracy, any time of day. hueyPRO INCLUDES hueyPRO colorimeter with USB power cord, hueyPRO device cradle, hueyPRO profiling software and Quick Start Guide. hueyPRO’s increased color accuracy combined with the ability to calibrate multiple monitors delivers the solution you need to accurately view your images. With its customizable white point and gamma combinations, enhanced LCD calibration and Advanced Help, the hueyPRO is the answer to your color needs.

Very easy to use.

I have been out time and money and looks like a have to get another calibration system - I just wanted to let people know before they end up like my situation.
Peter Booras
After calibrating each monitor per HUEY, the monitors do not display content with the same color or intensity.

I have used other similar but far more expensive products but they always ended up in one of my junk drawers, filed under "another waste of money". The Huey Pro is exactly what it claims to be - a simple and accurate monitor/graphics card calibration tool.

Every PC/MAC monitor is grossly out of calibration 'out-of-the-box', just as is the case with TVs (HD or SD). Every video card has a different output balance from 'true' (just like every DVD player for home theater), and factory settings on LCD displays are far from proper. If you care about decent image quality (such as with digital photography, watching DVDs, accurate online catalog images, etc.) you must buy a tool to correct the video driver settings for your specific combination of monitor and graphics card (even even for the VGA vs. DVI port on the same card - they are different).

Even on the general case of the majority of monitors that are only able to achieve a 76% color accuracy level (6-bit panels, low contrast ratios, limited brightness - most laptops and low-mid priced LCDs), they still respond quite well to calibration with the Huey Pro. If you buy a higher grade of monitor (8-bit panels, high contrast ratios: Samsung 226BW, LG L246WP or L226WP, etc) where there is a potential for 94% color accuracy, then the Huey Pro calibration improvement is stellar.

For PC's with XP, if you run more than 1 display (or dual graphics cards), you need to download the XP "WinColorSetup.exe" file from MS. This allows for control of multiple monitor .icm files in Windows (have to use the same icm file for all monitors on that system otherwise).

Very easy to use. I have two monitors, (1 LCD and 1 CRT). I used the Huey to calibrate both. Had only one problem... One of the first steps in Huey is to ask what type monitor you have. All the calibrations were done and when it was finished with the LCD, it asked if I wanted to do the next monitor. If so, then drag the Huey Application to that monitor. Ok, all good... except it begins the next monitor with the step AFTER asking what type monitor you have. I guess it assumes you have two of the same type monitors. No problem though as you can hit the "back" button to get back to the "what type monitor do you have" section and start from that point.

One tip... If you use Photoshop, turn off (remove) the Abode Gamma before running Huey. This is mentioned in the Adanced help of Huey. Photoshop installs this Gamma program that resides in your start-up folder, so it auto starts when you start your computer. Removing this Gamma program is described in the Advanced help. It's fairly easy... just open your start-up folder and delete the Abode Gamma program.

Probably the best thing to do before running the Huey tests, is to read all the Advanced Help. Very useful information for people just learning.

Overall, very pleased with this product. Finally, a easy to read help manual. You just have to start up Huey to access it.

I have 2 independent computer/monitors, CRT and LCD. Running Win XP with a 128 MB video card. Since Photoshop CS3 no longer ships with Gamma calibration software,(shame on Adobe), I felt I should invest in calibration hardware. Not wanting to spend a fortune ,I first tried spyder 2 express. I returned it almost immediately. It did not install properly, (string error messages) and had very few features,no ambient light adj.,no variable Gamma setting,etc.
I then took a chance with the Huey Pro @ about $85. At first I was again dissappointed. Although it has many features (not really a stripped down calibrator) and was easy to install,it created a pink hue across my monitor.Some calibration! Called tech support,toll free & quickly got through. They recognized the problem, and shipped out a new one,no hassle,no fuss, and it works like a charm,with a caveat,monitor calibration and printer calibration,or profiling are related but seperate issues,with monitor calibration a good starting point. Oh, go with the Huey Pro version,it has features and more calibration points than the basic Huey has and is only a few dollars more.
Unless you are prepared to spend a lot more time and money,I would recommend this product. Although you probably wouldn't need the manual, none the less print out the very informative user manual from the installed program. The provided quick start guide is sparse at best.

I've been using the Monaco OPTIX XR colorimeter for a couple of years to successfully calibrate several monitors for my photography studio. When I happened to read about the Pantone Huey Pro I thought it might be a good option for a light weight, travel colorimeter for my location jobs.

I purchased one at the end of December and tried to calibrate two different monitors. In each case the monitors suffered from the same pink cast as described in many of these reviews. I created new profiles with my Monaco OPTIX XR to have a basis of comparison and yes the Huey Pro was definitely biased towards a pink cast.

After contacting Pantone technical support they did indeed admit to a manufacturing problem and promised that they would replace my colorimeter after a delay of two weeks while they filled backorders. After three weeks (and one telephone call to remind them) I did receive the replacement Huey Pro.

I installed the software on a clean OS, plugged in the new unit and guess what... exactly the same pink color cast. I once again created a new profile with my Monaco OPTIX and the monitor was back to normal.

Obviously this product is relatively inexpensive for a good reason - It doesn't work!
