Spectral data is the DNA of color. Whether you’re working with density, tone value, L*a*b*, L*C*H or just about any other metric, color quantification begins with spectral data. That data is captured with a spectrophotometer and then transformed through mathematical algorithms into other color metrics.
Users work with spectral data every day, but exactly what spectral data is and how it is used remains a mystery to many. Join Mark as he aims to remove the mystery of the color data, from which all other color metrics are derived.
