Steve Shaw contacted me recently with regard to Lightspace and the ee ColorBox. It’s an intriguing package and I have to say that I’m tempted. However, I’m not sure about the commercial viability of this for me. The early adopter price of the Lightspace software is still in excess of £1500. To recoup this cost I’d have to sell at least 22 ee ColorBoxes. With the UK calibration market being extremely price sensitive I’m not sure this is viable. I don’t think there are going to be too many clients looking to spend £350-400 on a ColorBox and an additional £225 on calibration when their TV only cost £2k. Even looking at it optimistically my guess is that it would take me at least 3 years just to make my money back. I really like the idea, just not sure about the commercial viability here in the UK at least. Now if the software were cheaper still than the promo price then I’d probably give it a whirl but the promo will end at some point and then it really will be out of my league.
