Datacolor has added a new model to its SpectraVision range that measures and digitally communicates the colour of unique or challenging materials such as buttons and lace.
The new SpectraVision V tackles “previously unmeasurable” items such as multi-coloured, textured, small-sized and irregular-shaped materials. For example, a user may want to measure and match the colour of a button or zipper to a garment, or to measure yarn, lace, heathered and multi-coloured materials.
The model’s new vertical configuration, sample tray and cup reduce the risk of materials falling in the sphere and eliminate the need for a mounted sample holder.
It increases efficiency by reducing the steps to match and approve colour, while a high resolution sample image taken by the hyperspectral spectrophotometer can also be leveraged for onscreen colour evaluation and communication of colorimetric data, the company says.
“With the new vertical configuration and enhancements to the Datacolor Tools SV software, we are able to extend the benefits of objective digital colour management to multiple industries and customers,” says Albert Busch, Datacolor president and CEO.
“Customers with previously unmeasurable materials, whether due to its size, shape, texture, or applications can now conduct consistent, repeatable, objective color measurements, result in increased efficiency, reduced costs and faster time to market.”
