Accurate visual color evaluation with Datacolor Light booth

Confidence + flexibility. The Datacolor difference.

The perceived color of any object is significantly influenced by the light source and the environment in which it is viewed. As the light source changes, the color of an object may also change. To ensure consistency in color decisions, it is therefore essential that everyone evaluating color in a supply chain evaluates samples under similar lighting conditions.

Datacolor Light booths simulate a variety of lighting conditions enabling visual color assessors to conveniently evaluate product colors with confidence and consistency in any lighting environment:

  • LED (3000K/3500K/4000K)
  • Artificial Daylight (D50/D65/D75)
  • Store Light (CWF/TL83/TL84/U35)
  • Home Light (A/Horizon)
  • Ultraviolet Light (UV)
