Now, confidently match color to almost any surface - instantly! Capture color inspiration from any surface, material or fabric - even small, patterned, multi-colored textures and textiles - and match it quickly and accurately to a PANTONE Color.



Capsure - The Color Matcher

Today's color measurement devices don’t “Measure Up”. You are limited to color fan decks, color finder devices and spectrophotometers... Introducing CAPSURE - A compact, handheld device that lets graphic arts design professionals, paint retailers, contractors and do-it-yourselfers confidently measure and match color inspiration instantly – from small, multi-colored objects to textured fabrics, patterns, walls and carpeting. CAPSURE significantly speeds the process of color selection while delivering design accuracy.


Confidently Match Color to Almost Any Surface - Instantly! Capture color inspiration from any surface, material or fabric - even small, patterned, multi-colored textures and textiles - and match it quickly and accurately to a PANTONE Color. Created for professionals in fashion, home, interior, industrial and graphic design, as well as for contractors, paint retailers and do-it-yourselfers, CAPSURE is easy to use and portable, yet its advanced image capture technology sets a new standard for accuracy and versatility in a portable device.

Created for professionals in fashion, home furnishings, interior, industrial and graphic design, as well as contractors, paint retailers and do-it-yourselfers, CAPSURE allows users to accurately identify color inspiration from any surface, material or fabric and match it to a PANTONE® Color for easy communication. With unsurpassed accuracy, CAPSURE significantly reduces the time it takes to measure or choose a color from a sample or any other form of color inspiration.

I am constantly inspired and, believe it or not, have actually started carrying CAPSURE in my bag to capture color inspiration wherever I am – it’s as easy to use as an iPhoneTM,” said Peter Som, American women’s wear designer. “Pantone has managed to marry the design process with cutting-edge technology in this one tool – my design team and I are obsessed!

The device uses powerful tri-directional image capture technology that eliminates the shadows and interference inherent to patterned and textured materials and surfaces. By illuminating the surface being measured from three different directions while simultaneously recording 27 color-accurate images in 1.6 seconds, CAPSURE can extract up to four dominant colors from an intricate pattern so the viewer can clearly identify the desired color.
