Para medir el color, un dispositivo ilumina con una luz brillante una muestra, captura la cantidad de luz que se transmite o refleja en una longitud de onda en el rango de 380 nm a 780 nm, y la cuantifica como una medición espectral. La medición del color es necesaria para especificar, cuantificar, comunicar, formular y verificar la calidad del color en los trabajos en los que los colores tienen una importancia crítica. Debido a que cada persona percibe el color de diferente...

Learn more about light, reflection curves, optical brighteners, and more.     Illuminants Electro magnetic radiation in the wavelength range from 380 nm to 730 nm is seen as light by our eyes. Low wavelengths show as blue light. Then the spectrum continues from green, yellow, orange to red. UV radiation is located in the range below 380 nm; the range above 730 nm is called infrared radiation. The visual impression of a colored body changes by the composition of the incoming light. ...

Surface appearance can change your perception of color. Think of a glossy magazine. If the light is shining directly on the page, you may need to tilt the magazine and change the reflection angle to clearly see the colors. Likewise, a textured surface may appear to be a different color than a smooth surface of the same object.  Since spectrophotometers determine a color’s spectral values by shining light onto the surface and measuring the reflectance, choosing the right instrument an...

COVID-19 has forced many companies to rethink the way they communicate, approve, and produce color.    For some, that means trying to conduct “business as usual” from a remote location. For others, it means finding ways to manage color without travel. Either way, we know our customers are doing everything they can to sustain business while keeping their employees healthy and safe.    We want to help. Over the past few months we’ve been adding new resources t...

Black Friday. Not only is it the much anticipated start to holiday shopping, it’s also a day manufacturers have been preparing for all year long. Whether mass-producing holiday cards, candy canes, plastic toys, or festive clothing, accurate color is a must. Manufacturers can’t ship two of the same toy if they won’t match on the showroom floor, and holiday sweaters that are a shade off will end up at a discount store instead of a fashion boutique. Perfection is especially import...

Like the additive color model, subtractive color mixes wavelengths of light to produce what we perceive as color. However, the subtractive model uses pigments or ink to block – subtract – light rather than adding it.  Combining two pure additive primaries produces a subtractive primary. The subtractive primaries of cyan, magenta, and yellow are the opposing colors to red, green, and blue. Cyan is opposite Red Magenta is opposite Green Yellow is opposi...

Recently we had the opportunity to sit down with Laura Guido-Clark, a consumer products designer of color, material, and texture. She has been dubbed an “Experience Consultant,” which reflects her interest and study of human reactions to the look and feel of new products.   Photo by Laura Flippen. We asked Guido-Clark to speak with us because we also appreciate the importance of color in our lives.   Q. What inspired you to pursue a career in color? A. When I wa...

A calibrated display is not just for photographers. If you browse inspiration photos online, send color samples back and forth via e-mail, or transfer color files between suppliers and customers, you need to calibrate and profile your display to trust the colors you see on-screen.     When talking about monitor calibration, many people interchange illuminance, luminance and brightness, but they are not the same. Here are the differences you need to understand to properly calibrate and...

There are different levels of process control that are used for print. While visual comparisons can be used to provide a rudimentary judgment of a match, they can be very subjective, and thus not very accurate, or repeatable.    Using a densitometer can provide quantitative actionable feedback for the press operator. This can include measurements of solid ink density, tone value increase (also known as dot gain), Ink Trap, and other print characteristics. These are known as mechanical ...

Nuestros clientes que ahora trabajan de forma remota deben ser conscientes de que cambiar una pequeña variable, como aprobar el color en el hogar bajo una fuente de luz diferente o enviar especificaciones por correo electrónico en lugar de enviar una muestra física, puede introducir problemas de color que pueden llegar a ser graves. La primera y más importante etapa para el control del color es una comunicación precisa. Estos recursos lo ayudarán a comenzar. La importancia de la comunicación de...

Los espectrofotómetros son dispositivos de medición del color que se usan para capturar y evaluar el color. Como parte de un programa de control del color, los propietarios de marcas y los diseñadores los usan para especificar y comunicar el color, y los fabricantes los usan para supervisar la precisión del color en toda la producción. Los espectrofotómetros pueden medir prácticamente cualquier cosa, incluidos líquidos, plásticos, papel, metal, telas, y ayudan a garantizar que el color se manten...

Las pantallas del teléfono y la computadora son la ventana al mundo digital del color, pero si está aprobando los colores por correo electrónico o mensaje de texto, debe tener en cuenta las limitaciones.  Si es un principiante, debe saber que cada uno de sus dispositivos muestra los colores según un modelo de color diferente. Los dispositivos de entrada, la cámara y el monitor, muestran los colores mediante el modelo aditivo. Comienzan con oscuridad y agregan luz roja, verde y azu...

¿Su programa de control de calidad incluye una evaluación visual? La iluminación juega un papel muy importante en cómo percibimos el color. Puede ayudarlo a verificar si el color de su producto es aceptable y garantizar que lo siga siendo en todas las condiciones de iluminación posibles después de la compra.     Muchos de nuestros clientes consideran que la evaluación visual es aún más importante cuando realizan la transición de las revisiones y aprobaciones de color a una ubicació...

Muchos factores intervienen en la forma en que se percibe el color, incluidos la luz, genética, el entorno, las características individuales e incluso la fatiga. También puede ser 1 de las 255 mujeres o 1 de los 12 hombres que poseen alguna deficiencia en la visión del color. Nuestro desafío de color en línea es una forma divertida de comprender mejor su agudeza visual para percibir los colores.     Independientemente de su agudeza v...

Managing color throughout production is always a challenge, but advances in color technology, like the metallic, shimmer, and pearlescence effects designed to capture consumer attention, are taking the frustration to a whole new level for quality control managers. This is especially true when producing parts that must match at assembly, such as the metal panels for a home appliance or the painted side mirrors for a vehicle.  Special effects are tricky to control because our perception can c...

When it comes to the way we see color, our eyes can be deceived. This is partially caused by our humble brain, which is managing vast amount of information and processing it the best it can. It can also be related to genetics and the environment; we all see color a little differently. But above all, LIGHT has biggest impact on the colors we see.  Without getting too technical, here is an introduction to the way light affects our perception of color. RGB Color Circle The temperature of lig...

Durable goods and consumer electronics are no longer destined to be white, gray, and black. In fact, consumers are moving towards more classic colors and special effect finishes like metallics. To capitalize on this trend, brands need to bring innovative designs in new colors faster to market than ever before.   One trending color, the PANTONE Color of the Year 2020, is sure to capture the attention of durable good and consumer electronic brands. It is a simple, timeless, elegant, and endur...
