Topics include: How to properly use and maintain your spectrophotometer, setting up a successful color evaluation process, sample measurement do’s and don’ts and much more.
Fine-tuning your spectrophotometer
Explore the proper use and maintenance of a spectrophotometer to ensure accuracy in sample measurement. Instrument settings, calibration, and diagnostics are all vital elements of successful spectrophotometer use.
Enhancing data presentation to support effective decision making
Learn more now on how to present data in a well-organized way for effective evaluation of sample quality and accurate decision making. We also show how to sort data in the Datacolor TOOLS data template.
Getting the most out of graphs and on-screen color for evaluating color quality
In this webinar session we discuss the best ways to utilize various colorimetric graphs and display color on-screen, as available in Datacolor TOOLS, to interpret numerical color differences. We also investigate the unique functions available for creating a “virtual light box”.
Sample measurement do’s and don’ts
In this webinar session we discuss sample measurement techniques for various sample types with a goal of understanding how to ensure the accuracy of your reflectance data.
Put your colorimetric pass/fail decisions to the test
Looking at color quality control software, we discuss creation of colorimetric tolerances for pass/fail decisions. We use Datacolor TOOLS software as an example, and we explore the use of Metamerism Index as a measure of sample acceptability.
Evaluating fluorescent white materials
Let’s have a closer look at the sources of variability in evaluation of optically brightened samples, methods for UV calibration of the spectrophotometer, and tolerance options to enable numerical pass/fail decisions.
Managing your color data with greater efficiency
Let’s review options for efficient data management – including accessing, manipulating and sharing data, like user configuration and security, desktop data management, and options for getting data in and out of the software.
Virtual sample development
Virtual color development using calibrated monitors and printers can be an effective way of eliminating unnecessary colors prior to development and reducing time and shipping expenses in evaluation of color submissions. So let’s explore the uses and limitations of virtual color development.
Never lose your samples in the database again
Finding the right samples in your color database doesn’t have to be a challenge. Search options in Datacolor TOOLS are designed to simplify this process, so let’s examine use of colorimetric search options and use of business information fields to facilitate speedy sample location.
Creating a successful digital color management workflow
Let’s see how to put spectrophotometers, digital samples, software, computer monitors, and business systems together to efficiently and effectively translate design concepts into final products with minimal wasted time and effort and without potentially costly mistakes.
Supplier accreditation for faster product delivery
The goal of the color office is to ensure the availability of the requested color on the right material at the right time with the right performance and price. In this webinar session we discuss communication of color development requirements and evaluation of performance as a part of a successful color management program.
Supplier Color Development Processes
Matching a new color standard can be a challenge, but somehow the dye mill responds to a color development request by providing a lab dip that is generally a close match to a color standard. Of course there are always exceptions depending on the color of the standard and the product performance requirements. In this webinar session we walk through the steps used and challenges faced by a dye mill in matching a new shade. We will also explore use of “theoretical” reflectance curves to improve the color development process..
