Datacolor - Color Management - SpectraVision

The Datacolor SpectraVision solution enables retailers and their suppliers to objectively measure and digitally communicate the color of “the unmeasurables – prints, trims, yarns, laces, etc.” thereby saving costs and shortening the time from concept to consumer.

This solution combines an advanced hyperspectral spectrophotometer with best-in-class quality control software to measure, analyze, report, communicate, and visualize accurate color results.

How Spectravision works:

  1. Measure - The device creates s 31 digital images of swatches through 31 filters. These are used to create the reflectance curves for each color in the swatch. Colors within tolerance are grouped either automatically or manually to create color separation.
  2. Assess - Spectravision’s software component, Tools SV, digitally mimics the current visual approval process for “unmeasurables” to create a familiar workflow enabling easy adoption.

    Users can assess the captured data with a variety of features:

  • Create color collection for ease of management
  • Automatically separate colors for greater efficiency
  • Hone assessments of quality parameters, including separation method adjustments, masking tools, border size and percent coverage.

3. Communicate - Shareable files are created for each imaged color region. User-defined fields and other data can be exported for reporting.
