Harrisburg, PA–D&H Distributing, the national computer and consumer electronics distributor, has signed an agreement to distribute the full line of color management tools and accessories from Datacolor, an internationally known brand in color technology.
Datacolor’s SpyderTV and SpyderTV PRO color calibration devices allow users to fine-tune colors in a home theater display with professional-level accuracy.
In addition to integrating Datacolor technology into a larger home entertainment system, installers and dealers have the opportunity to offer regular, in-home color calibration services for any home theater they install. Such services, to be conducted on a contract basis, can represent a new and potentially high-margin incremental revenue stream.
“As anyone who’s compared televisions side-by-side knows, color consistency has always been one of the challenges of evaluating display technology. The digital home customer can be demanding, with end-users looking for bells and whistles that will set their system apart and justify their investment,” said Rob Eby, purchasing director at D&H Distributing. “The value of the SpyderTV products is an easy sell: Just compare the image quality after a calibration, and you’ll have the end user’s attention. D&H is always looking for innovations like Datacolors color management products, which help create more competitive deals and fresh revenue sources for our resellers.”
Datacolor is the parent company of ColorVision, whose color calibration tools for displays, monitors and notebooks will also be part of D&H’s offerings.
