What is a spectrophotometer, and when should it be used?

Whether it is for color identification, color matching or color quality control, these instruments can help you achieve and communicate accurate color. During this quick webinar, Ed Hattenberger, Senior Color Scientist at X-Rite Pantone, briefly explains why spectral data is important for color communication, the common types of spectrophotometer geometries, and why spectral data is preferred over CIELAB color values.

Watch this webinar to understand:

  • How to get spectral data
  • The three most common spectrophotometer geometries:  0:45, sphere/diffuse, multi-angle and non-contact
  • How to choose the right spectrophotometer for your applications
