ColourView 2By combining several, different measurement methods, the BYK-Gardner color2view becomes an objective eye that evaluates our visual colour impression in its entity.  

The color2view uses a circumferential illumination at 45-degrees with 0-degrees viewing to measure colour as you see it. The circumferential illumination from 10 directions ensures repeatable measurement results on textured surfaces. Simultaneously with colour, 20-degrees and 60-degrees gloss are measured to clearly differentiate medium gloss and high gloss samples.

In addition, the color2view has a fluorimeter integrated to predict lightfastness by quantifying fluorescence—the calculated colour change after fluorescence degradation is displayed with easy-to-understand CIELAB- and DE data. The combination of a spectrophotometer and a fluorimeter opens completely new perspectives for controlling colour quality and guaranteeing long-term colour stability. The color2view Pro offers a Jetness Mode which is specially designed to measure deep and deepest black with highest accuracy. It features excellent technical performance which also is assured for the very low reflectance range R < 0.1 per cent.

Easy to operate, intuitive navigation and new functionalities with the “special touch”, the compact and lightweight instrument can be easily rotated to adapt the orientation to the users personal needs or sample size and shape. Operation via the brilliant, colour touchscreen is icon-based and just as intuitive as using a smart-phone. An integrated camera permits a live preview of the measurement spot. This prevents false readings on imperfections or scratches and ensures precise positioning of the sample. 

There is a storage compartment for standards, which ensures that the standards are always at hand and protected, and a smart sample holder. The sample holder can be stored flat in the housing of the instrument when not in use and be parked at several positions on its way to the measurement area where it touches the sample’s surface gently thanks to the soft-close function. The color2view X models can be used with interchangeable apertures to measure small to large samples.
