Datacolor adds 64-bit support to Spyder5 calibrator for compatibility with macOS Catalina

18 Oct

Color calibration company Datacolor has announced a 64-bit update for its Spyder5 calibration sensor (Adorama, B&H) that will ensure the device is compatible with Apple’s latest macOS Catalina update.

The update, which was required due to the lack of 32-bit application support macOS Catalina, is available as a free software upgrade for all Spyder5 owners.

Datacolor’s newest calibration sensor, the SpyderX, is already 64-bit computable, so if you have the Spyder, there’s no need to update. You can find out more information by visiting Datacolor’s product page.
