Webinar Series: Color Theory

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?
Watch this Datacolor Color Theory webinar series to get the answers.

Color communication

2. Color communication

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

3. Color coordinates and color difference

In this webinar, learn 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.

Color tolerance

4. Color tolerance

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.
