The PANTONE 3 Light Booths can light your way to more effective and reliable color assessment for very specific lighting requirements when approving samples. Three things are required to realize color: Light. The Eyes and An Object. Without light, there is no color. Without controlled light, color can, and will, appear different. A metameric effect is where two different colors will appear the same under certain lighting conditions. Having a controlled environment such as Pantone Light-Booth helps identify these troublesome effects. PANTONE 3 Light Booths are stylish and complementary to any work space. They also deliver reliable daylight, store and home lighting options that will help you adequately identify color variations and metameric effects sooner than later.
Pantone 3 Features
Consistent, industry standard fluorescent illumination
Consistent fluorescent illumination that complies with major international standards such as ISO, ASTM, DIN, ANSI and BSI visual assessment requirements.
Simulate daylight, home and store environments
A light bluish colored light source used in color matching applications of paints, plastics,textiles, raw inks, and other manufactured products. D65 appears more neutral in balance to the eye even though the spectral graph does not correlate. D65 accentuates blue and subdues green and red.
D65 is the only daylight source that was actually measured. The other daylight sources were mathematically derived from these measurements. D65 is derived from the average of measurements made of light coming in a north facing window in the northern (European) hemisphere on an overcast day at various times through the day throughout the year.
D65 is also the reference illuminant used in sRGB and Adobe RGB (1998) color spaces. HDTV and SMPTE-C (SDTV) also use D65 as the reference white point. dedicated light source option for industrial applications
A near white light source used in the evaluation of graphic arts and imaging applications. Also used as reference illuminant for color matching in LAB color space.
It has similar amounts of red, green, and blue energy. It neither accentuates nor subdues color, a prime requirement when viewing press sheets and proofs since a wide range of colors can exist in an image. dedicated light source option mainly for print and packaging applications
- "A" Tungsten
Illuminant A (2865K) is a common household light bulb that is yellowish red in color. Halogen home lighting simulation lamp
- Cool White Fluorescent (CWF
A wide band single phosphor fluorescent source commonly used in commercial lighting applications in North America. CWF is characterized by emitting high amounts of green energy, with a color temperature of approximately 4100K. It has a CRI or approximately 62.) and TL84 European Commercial Fluorescent Lighting, 4100K, (TL84), A narrow band tri-phosphor fluorescent source originally designed for commercial lighting applications outside North America. It is characterized by emitting high amounts of green energy, with a color temperature of approximately 4100K. It has a CRI of approximately 86. store lighting simulation lamp options
Identify troublesome metameric effects
Metameric effect is when two colors appear to match under one set of lighting conditions but fail to match in another, are often causes for product rejection if not identified early. Using three different lights from Pantone 3 Light Booths, users can detect metameric effects efficiently.
- Neutral background for accurate color viewing
- Sized to fit well into most work spaces
- Durable aluminum construction
- Powder-coated finish for stain and scratch resistance
- Easy to operate and maintain
- Shielded viewing area
Pantone 3 has usage meter ensures proper lighting quality.
