What do object properties, a specific light source or even differences in human eyesight have to do with color? How do you communicate objectively about a color? What about L*, a* and b* values, and what is Delta E? And what tools can you use to evaluate color tolerances?
This Datacolor color theory webinar series helps you find the answers to these (and many more!) questions. If you have questions while viewing the videos, please send them to email@example.com. Consult the recordings here
Color and appearance
What do object properties, a specific light source or even differences in human eyesight have to do with color? Everything, because all those aspects influence color perception! Watch the webinar to find out how!
We all talk about colors, right? But how exactly do you communicate about a color? Let’s talk you through L* (Lightness), C* (Color) and H* (Hue) and read some spectral curves together during this webinar.
Color coordinates and color difference
During this webinar, we define how to best express the color you need for your paint, your coating, or any other object! Join us to explore CIE tristimulus values and the CIELAB color space, and we’ll calculate color differences together.
In most industries, color consistency across multiple materials and iterations is required. Now that we acquired a common language in color, let’s focus on colorimetry and how to measure and record color differences. We’ll go into Delta E, color tolerance and color acceptability.
Visual and instrumental color evaluation
Wondering about the best way to evaluate color? Let’s define the necessary conditions to evaluate color, and review how a colorimeter or a spectrophotometer can do the job for you!
