spectro2guide represents the next step in the evolution of color measurement. The instrument combines a spectrophotometer with a fluorimeter in one portable device. For the first time color and 60° gloss are measured and light fastness is predicted.
The basic building blocks of color measurement
Visual color perception is influenced by our individual color preferences, which are dependent on personal factors (mood, age, gender etc.), environment (lighting, surrounding etc.) as well as our ability to communicate color and color differences. A color looks different in the department store (cool white fluorescent lighting) than at home (warm, incandescent lighting). In order to guarantee consistent color and appearance under all possible circumstances, it is essential to standardize light source, observer and understand the spectral remission data of the object. This information will be the basis for calculation of colorimetric data as it is used for color communication and color QC in production.Read more
