2 Degree Standard Observer Function   Fall Leaves
Understanding Standard Observers in Color Measurement   Why Leaves Change Color in the Fall
The subjectivity of the human eye often leads to inconsistencies when evaluating or communicating color internally or throughout the supply chain. Because of this, scientists from the CIE organization established functions to standardize how the color of an object is measured and evaluated. This article details two of these functions called 2 degree and 10 degree standard observers.
As the days become shorter and the nights become cooler, Mother Nature begins to prepare herself for the winter months. The leaves on trees transform from shades of green to a colorful palette of yellows, oranges, and reds before eventually falling off onto the ground. What some may not know, however, is that many of these autumn hues are there in the summer months too.

Process Control Color Seminars: Applying SPC to Color   Understanding the L*C*h Color Space
Konica Minolta Sensing Americas hosts Process Control Color seminars around the United States to discuss how statistical process control (SPC) is applied to color. These educational sessions cover six sigma methodologies and statistical tools used for controlling product color and improving efficiency within the production process.
Preferred by some industry professionals, the L*C*h color space allows users to evaluate color attributes, communicate color, and identify inconsistencies in objects using lightness, chroma, and hue coordinates. This application note provides an overview of the L*C*h color space and how it’s used in various applications.



Did You Know?

According to one study, silver cars are less likely to get into a serious accident. This may be because their lighter color and reflectivity are more easily seen by other drivers on the road.
