Datacolor Introduces Viewport™ Imaging Technology
Designed for use by product quality control operators and color analysts, the technology offers an objective digital color process for materials that traditionally are evaluated visually. Viewport features precisely calibrated imaging technology and enables remote visualization and color evaluation for a range of products — including heathers, lace, denim, towels, fabric prints/patterns and wall coverings — under multiple lights, thereby removing the need to send physical samples and reducing the risk of human error in color assessment. It utilizes cloud-based technology to enable instant and secure data sharing anywhere globally. Users are able to post information and images on the Web as well as to approve or reject, archive and search samples.
"Eliminating the need to ship physical samples is a significant benefit to both the supplier and buyer in the supply chain," said Eric Alho, product marketing manager, Datacolor. "Datacolor Viewport provides suppliers and their customers the ability to simultaneously view and analyze color quality in multiple light references using color-calibrated image capture technology, which simplifies the approval process and ensures that the color is accurate, consistent, and produced on time."
