      Accurate Scans on Sheen

      The human eye is able to see how color is affected by various levels of sheen. When light shines on a glossy surface it can make it appear to have different hues, some darker or lighter than others. However, when finding the right paint for a room, it is impossible for our eyes to see what the true color is. That’s where our Spectro 1 Pro comes to the rescue. It is able to see the actual color of a wall even if there is a sheen, helping you get the right color every time!


      The Spectro by Variable app combines Spectro 1 Pro’s compact, portable design with patent-pending technology in a convenient, efficient, and highly accurate color matching system that works with smartphones. This allows users to easily measure, save, and share powerful color data. When companies join Variable Cloud, they can then upload local standards for use on all devices.

      Alternatively, users can upgrade their Spectro device by purchasing the Bridge option, which enables integration directly into existing PC software for seamless, quality color communication and matching.
