Precision and Compatibility

At Datacolor, our commitment to accuracy is literally in our name. Our reputation for high-precision color measurement, formulation and correction is well-earned. We understand the crucial role of precise color and our close-tolerance inter-instrument agreement guarantees that you’ll get the same level of precision across your fleet and throughout your supply chain.

With our formulation software, you can maximize the use of your data, save time, reduce waste and save money to become the master of faster and more accurate color formulations!

Over the years, we’ve come out with a number of new instruments and that’s why we offer backward compatibility with older Datacolor spectrophotomers, making your transition to modern, more precise devices smoother and hassle-free. Datacolor has used the same master instruments for nearly 30 years – and counting – all the way back to the SpectraFlash 500 (that’s a real throwback for those of you who are longtime customers!)
