Confused about meters?  See our FAQ: Which meter is right for me?

The DTP-94 is difficult to find. However, it offers excellent performance at a surprisingly low cost.

It is inexpensive, fast, with excellent low-light capabilities, and it offers accuracy that equals or exceeds the Display 2/LT.

The DTP-94 ships in its standard retail packaging.


Technical Specifications

Measurement range: 0.05 cd/m2-1000 cd/m2
Accuracy: Chromaticity: x,y +/-0.005
Luminance: +- 4%
Inter-instrument Agreement: Chromaticity: x,y +-0.005


What is the DTP-94 PRO?

The DTP-94 is a relatively low cost mass-market device whose tolerances are looser than what you would find with more expensive professional color analyzers.

Our ChromaPure partner has developed a version of the DTP-94 exclusively for CurtPalme.com called the DTP-94 PRO that offers substantially enhanced accuracy across multiple display types.

This is the same enhancement that is performed on the Display 3 PRO. For more information on exactly what is done to offer greater accuracy than previously possible, see our Display 3 PRO order page.

The enhancements make the DTP-94 PRO a colorimeter that offers excellent performance at a price affordable to the amateur hobbyist or enthusiast.

Already have a DTP-94? The PRO enhancement service is also available for existing meters at the CurtPalme.com discounted price. See our BUY NOW buttons to the right.

The service includes a certificate of calibration that itemizes all the corrections that were applied to the meter.

Can my DTP-94 / DTP-94 PRO be recalibrated?

Yes. For the same modest fee, your DTP-94 can (and should) be periodically recalibrated to the same PRO level to ensure it retains its initial accuracy. This service eliminates the problems associated with exposure to the elements over time. We recommend doing this yearly. See our BUY NOW buttons above. You pay for shipping to us and for US customers we pay for shipping back to you. (International customers pay shipping in both directions).

The service includes a certificate of calibration that itemizes all the corrections that were applied to the meter.

How does the DTP-94 compared to the Chroma 5?

Performance wise the DTP-94 sits squarely between the Display 2/LT and the Chroma 5, though it is more along the lines of the Chroma 5 in terms of components.

The Chroma 5 was designed off the DTP-94 and as such, the specifications are very similar. The DTP-94 is the best performing consumer class colorimeter you can get with read speeds similar to the Chroma 5. Both the Chroma 5 and DTP-94 are temperature compensated.

Calibrating Front Projectors

For best accuracy, we recommend calibrating front projectors by taking readings directly off the screen. For a modest fee a universal front projection kitt is also available that includes a tripod mount and an opal glass diffuser for those who prefer the higher light levels available from direct lens readings. However, when taking readings in this mode, you should always color correct the results from an offset created by taking readings from the screen without the diffuser.

What's included

The DTP-94 / ChromaPure kit as shipped contains:

  • The X-Rite DTP-94 Colorimeter with attached USB cable
  • Cable counterweight
  • Suction cup attachment
  • Installation instructions
  • ChromaPure video calibration software on CD

The DTP-94 Pro also includes a certificate of calibration that shows the offsets that were applied to all available operating modes.

For your convenience our ChromaPure partner offers a simple calibration DVD that includes all of the test patterns that you'll need to perform a complete calibration of your display.
