Lighting the Way to Accurate Color


In manufacturing and quality control across all industries, accurate color is important. When color does not meet specifications, the result is increased cost and time to market, and more rejects and rework. That's why it is important to have good processes in place for visual evaluation of color. One way to improve consistency is by ensuring that color is viewed under the best possible lighting conditions.

For optimum results, samples should be examined using a light booth that offers a variety of lighting conditions to enable you to determine how your color will look in the factory, as well as outside, in a fluorescent-lit store, in a home environment, or wherever else your products will be seen once they enter the world.




The Judge QC light booth offers an economical and effective way to judge color, anywhere color quality needs to be evaluated, helping you improve quality control operations.
  • Achieve better color evaluation of materials and products with consistent lighting.
  • Benefit from robust, industrial construction that will serve you for years to come.
  • Always know exactly how functional the Judge QC lamps are with its new convenient lamp service indicator.
  • Take advantage of multiple options for lamp replacement, designed to be as convenient as possible and ensure maximum up-time.

Color Critical

The Judge QC is ideally suited for visual evaluation of color critical applications. When colors don't match during final product assembly, or from batch to batch or lot to lot, the result is rejection and waste. By making the Judge QC light booth an integral part of your visual evaluation process - in the lab, on the production floor or during quality assurance - you can ensure that customers will be delighted with the color outcome.

The Ultimate Judge

The brand-new Judge QC is the industry's most cost effective light booth featuring a robust industrial design. Its metal construction with a powder-coated surface is built for longevity. Its five light sources deliver:
  • Consistent fluorescent illumination that complies with major international standards such as ISO, ASTM, DIN, ANSI and BSI visual assessment requirements.
  • Dedicated D50 light source for print and packaging applications; dedicated D65 light source for industrial applications. Tungsten (A), UV and fluorescent light also included. New Dual Daylight mode enables easy switching between D50 and D65 light sources in situations where operators may need to view samples under both lighting conditions.
  • Easy installation of replacement lamps, on your own or by a professional technician.
  • Optional pre-certified lamp packs that include a calibration certification


Consider Metamerism and Optical Brightners

OnColor Premium

Metamerism is a phenomenon that occurs when objects match in one light source, but not in another. This commonly occurs when dyes, paints or pigments are changed during production. To check for metamerism, view your samples under a variety of different light sources.

The Judge QC light booth includes tungsten (A) lamps, the primary light source used for metamerism comparison. The Judge QC's UV lamps should be used when samples contain optical brightening agents (OBAs). OBAs are used to achieve a "whiter-than-white" effect on a range of materials, including plastics, paints and coatings and paper.


If the lighting condition is not correct, the whites - and any color that gets applied to the material or fabric - will not be consistent and will fail to meet expectations. The Judge QC's UV illumination allows for accurate visual evaluation of OBA-enhanced materials.
