Taking the color experience to the next level
The ColorPro Wheel easily connects with ColorPro Sense, an exclusive color picker software that can access the most recent Pantone libraries, offering a creative choice of multiple alternative palette suggestions. It also enables effortless identification of the closest Pantone color of the ColorPro Wheel's detected colors. In addition to offering color palette suggestions, ColorPro Sense fosters effective collaboration by allowing easy sharing of palettes between creators, therefore ensuring unified visual aesthetics throughout the creative process. With ColorPro Sense, an interior designer can use photographs of a specific fabric to easily pinpoint its Pantone color code, which can then be shared with a furniture maker for true-to-life reproduction.
The ColorPro Integrate software extends the ColorPro Wheel's functionalities beyond just color calibration, empowering creators to edit their photos and video projects with ease. With a simple click and spin, creatives can seamlessly navigate the tools and interface of their favorite creative applications, such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere and Capture One. By using the ColorPro Wheel for brush size, opacity, brightness level and other adjustments, ColorPro Integrate boosts the productivity of creatives to meet tight deadlines.
Color accuracy and OSD control enhance creative workflows
Creative work requires absolute color precision. The ColorPro Wheel attaches to the monitor to effortlessly calibrate the screen, ensuring its color accuracy. With the ability to save color profiles, the ColorPro Wheel maintains the color accuracy of monitors over an extended duration. This assures creative professionals that their work is presented in its truest form.
The ColorPro Wheel gives creators convenient access to their monitor's OSD settings with an effortless click and turn. Whether adjusting the screen's color, contrast, brightness and resolution, or switching the input mode, the ColorPro Wheel's intuitive control enhances creative workflows. This quick access is particularly useful for borderless monitors, as their smaller bezels make OSD control buttons difficult to reach.
With utmost color accuracy, OSD control, and seamless creative software integration, the ColorPro Wheel is a must-have device that advances creative workflows to the next level. Completing the ColorPro experience, the ColorPro Wheel is available as an accessory bundled with the VP2776 and VP2786-4K Professional Monitors.
