Thinking of Color
 CIE Lab-A color model based on human perception developed by
the CIE (Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage) committee
1976.
“Commission of Lighting/Color”
• L- Lightness Darkness
• a- Green Red
• b- Yellow Blue
Also consider
 Hue is what most of us think of when we think of "color." It is the
generic name used to describe a color, e.g., red, green, yellow,
orange, etc.
 Chroma- Saturation is how pure the color is. A fully saturated
color is the truest version of that color. Primary colors (red,
yellow, and blue) are "true", so they are also fully saturated.

45/0 simulates normal viewing. It excludes all specular reflection (by virtue of geometry,
not mechanical port design) and also captures texture effects due to its directional
illumination.
We evaluate objects the same way e.g. when tilting a glossy sample to exclude gloss or
using a Light booth for controlled visual assessment.
As a result, 45/0 geometry correlates better with visual assessment of color and color
differences.

When SCI and when SCE?
Color is the sum of ALL reflections
Appearance is the same without the
specular (gloss) component

Datacolor DC110- Retail Systems
Features
•SP2000 Spectrometer (Primary
component that “measures” color)Replaces MC-90 in the DF100 = Better
analysis of color
•256 dual diode array provides
phenomenal spectral resolution double
the points of measurement of the
DF100 (128 points)
•Measured within ¼ of an inch (6mm)
•Improved circuitry and performance
•USB or Serial Cable
23
Datacolor DC110 Spectrophotometer
•DF100 measures 128 Points in ¼”
•DC110 measures 256 Points in ¼”
•High Definition= Better formulas
• High
definition measurement especially for highly saturated (dark) colors
• Sheen measurement – This is factored into formulas and provides information to
operator as to which paint sheen to use.
•Adjustable door for sample targeting
• Measures textured samples reducing the “shadows” created by other types of
instruments
