About Our Event
Join Konica Minolta Sensing at Photonics West 2020, the world’s largest annual photonics technologies event, consisting of three topical conferences, two world-class exhibitions and over 70 special events.
Konica Minolta Sensing Americas provides advanced optical technology that precisely measures the elements of color and light. Our products have become a staple in research and manufacturing environments, helping meet product quality and operational goals with less waste, time, and effort. When it comes to color and light measurement, the world looks to Konica Minolta. Customers around the world trust and depend on our products to manufacture their own products to the highest degree of quality. See why we’re regarded as the technological leader in color and light measurement solutions today.
Visit us in the Japan pavilion as we highlight on display products from both our lighting and color and appearance product lines.
CA-410 Display Color Analyzer
The greater intensity and wider color gamut of OLED devices have created a need for a new level in measurement performance. The high accuracy of Konica Minolta’s CA Series Display Color Analyzers has become the standard within the display industry. Our customers have come to expect value and superior technology found in Konica Minolta’s analyzers.
CL-200A Chroma Meter
The CL-200A chroma meter is the successor to the CL-200. It can measure the color temperature, illuminance, chromaticity, excitation purity, and dominant wavelength of various light sources.
CL-500A Illuminance Spectrophotometer
The CL-500A is a lightweight, compact illuminance spectrophotometer used for the evaluation of high-class, next-generation lamps such as LED and EL illumination.
The CM-26d is the next generation of portable sphere spectrophotometer with a horizontal alignment, a design convenient for measuring the color of flat or large samples.
An advanced all-in-one system, the CM-5 Spectrophotometer is a bench-top measurement instrument designed to evaluate the color and appearance of opaque, transparent, and translucent samples.
CS-150 Luminance and Color Meter
The CS-150 (successor to the CS-100A) is a highly accurate tristimulus colorimeter equipped with newly designed sensors with spectral responses that more closely match the CIE 1931 color-matching functions representing the sensitivity of the human eye to provide measurement results that better correlate with visual evaluation.

He stays on top of market trends for color measurement technologies and involves himself in standardizing activities such as CIE, ASTM. Prior to joining KMSA, he worked as an engineer at Konica Minolta Sensing’s R&D division in Japan engaging in development of spectrophotometers. He holds a Doctorate in Earth and Space Science from Osaka University in Japan. His major is application of spectroscopies for earth materials. He also holds B.S and M.S. degrees in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Tokyo Institute of Technology.
Randy is a graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology's Imaging and Photographic Technology B.S. program with a minor in Mathematics. He has held positions with the Department of Energy’s Laboratory for Laser Energetics, and GretagMacbeth. During his tenure at KMSA, he has held the positions of Technical Support Manager, Project Manager, Application Engineering Manager, Midwestern Sales Manager, Northeast Sales Manager, and currently oversees all sales of light and display instrumentation within North and South America. Randy specializes in light and color measurement instrumentation and software technologies applicable to a broad scope of industrial and scientific use, and applies this expertise to solve problems faced by industry and research alike.
Ethan was born and raised in South Korea. After graduating high school in South Korea, he moved to Japan to further his studies and earned a M.A. in Political Science at Waseda University. In 2012, Ethan joined Konica Minolta, Inc. in Japan where he held the title of Domestic Sales Representative of the Sensing Business Unit for about 3 years, both for Radiometrics and Color and Appearance. This position gave Ethan an in-depth experience and understanding of various product applications. Later, he supported Sensing Korea (Konica Minolta Sensing’s Korean branch) from every perspective on headquarters’ side and managed Sensing business expansion in the Taiwanese market simultaneously in the Asian Sales and Marketing department for about 3 years. This position gave him a good understanding of support experiences, especially for the display industry. Currently, Ethan works at KMSA as a corporate planning manager which includes support, especially for the Radiometric sales team, communicating with Japan’s Research and Development.
