Color Inspector Database Architecture

Color Inspector has two separate sections.

  Assets Tracking
Area of usage

This a Central Repository of Spot Color Standards for all CC Inspectors.

Print Inspector requires Assets as a source of References to evaluate spot colors (both direct and process-build)

Database dedicated to tracking colors in production (mainly for QC purposes).

Used for Print Industry or any other Color Manufacturing Process. Suitable also for checking raw materials and various documenting purposes.

Tracking can be extended to glossiness, roughness, and several surface parameters (about 12 different parameters today). 

For the instruments like CC Nano, a Reference Image can be part of the sample definition. 

Color Specification Preferred all possible M-condition and SPIN/SPEX for spherical instruments Preferred single per track
with a virtually unlimited number of tracks
Instrument Single  Parallel tracking based on different instruments 
Structure Standards collected into Libraries and Pallets (convertible)

Multilevel Structure
Products/ Objects/Elements 
w optional Groups and Collections

Spectral data expiration Permanent data. 

Long-term but limited.
Typical entire data lifetime - 5 years


 Color Inspector data compared to Print Inspector is color Specification independent ( Print Inspector uses fixed D50/2°).


Essential features of ChromaChecker Color Inspector

As different Instruments, due to the technical characteristic ( aperture, geometry, illuminator, monochromator, M-condition, methodology), can be sensitive to various parameters - final spectral curve/lab values can be different - ChromaChecker understands objective reasons and honor differences, therefore why the same object can have different Standards for other Instruments/Color Specifications.
