The ultimate way to measure BLACK

Black is more than a fascinating color. It is a fashion statement, a cultural symbol, a design element... Just as diverse is the appearance of black: black is not just black!

To measure the degree of blackness and its bluish or brownish undertone pushes the technical performance of a handheld spectrophotometer to its extreme limits. As the amount of reflected light becomes smaller and smaller the measuring accuracy becomes essential for meaningful results. The new spectro2guide Pro, was developed to accurately measure black and describe its undertones no matter how deep the black may be!
